My Own Little Craft Space (post #2)

Over at Craftin Desert Divas they are having a fun Linky Party challenge 
where we all get to share photos of our crafting space.
Here is my own little craft space.

As you can see my craft space is quite cozy. I share the space with a guest bed and other assorted household storage. In this little old 965 sq. ft home space is definately limited. As a matter of fact I'm standing on the bed to take this photo. When guests come we move in here and give them our bedroom. Wouldn't want to subject them to all of my creative clutter. They may never come again. lol.
Some of my ribbon is stored in a hanging Celebrate It ribbon box I got at Michaels. I have it hanging on the side of my 12x12 shelves you'll see in the next picture.
My 8x11 paper, stamps,stamp pads and assorted other crafting goodies are in assorted plastic drawers behind and beside my craft space.
My 12x12 paper is stored in Iris 12x12 containers.
The white containers in the front left corner of my pic hold my Verve Stamps and dies, My Creative Time stamps and dies, PK face stamps, and CardzTV stamp sets. I got these containers at Storables.

Next up is where I keep my Cricut cartridges and assorted crafting goodies. I got these 12x12 Recollection shelves at Michaels. I have three of them stacked up on the end of my crafting table. They are the perfect size to hold the cartridge boxes and the medium sized Snapware containers. The Snapware containers act as little drawers and hold my markers, gel pens, glitter and assorted other crafty goodies. This is my favorite of all of my storage ideas.

Next is where I keep my extra die cuts and design paper scraps. I got the containers at Michaels and the accordian folders at Staples. I just started to organize these this way so it is a work in progress. If I showed you a picture of all of my extra cuts and where they are now it would frighten you. lol.

My 4x6 and 5x7 Cuttlebug and assorted embossing folders are stored in the three Itso Small Bins I got at Target. I have them labled and sorted by theme.
Above them stored in Art Bins are my assorted Cuttlebug dies, assorted other dies and and embossing folders smaller than 4x6.
Next to them is how I have my Cricut Expression and my Silhouette Portrait. I was so lucky to win my Portrait in one of Linda's Paper Boutique Silhouette sponsored giveaways. I got the metal shelf at Storables so my machines can co-exist in the same small space.

My Cricut overlays are stored in these larger Snapware ribbon containers. I have most of the handbooks packed up and have them downloaded and stored digitally on my tablet.

Here is were (in theory) I store my solid scrap pieces in two more of the 12x12 shelves placed sideways under my crafting table. I say in theory because this is just were they end up when I go through the piles and sort them when I have time. lol. They are all sorted by color. One of them is on a wire shelf and the buckets underneath hold assorted adhesives and 3D craft samples.

Oh my goodness I didn't expect this to be such a long post.
I have tons of crafting goodies that can not be seen in these photos.
My name is D~ and I have an addiction.......
