New Crafty Zone!

I am soooo excited to have a new crafty zone. Let me set this up for a minute. My husband and I live in a 1 bedroom apartment and have a fairly large storage/garage space that is unattached. Hubs has most of his stuff in the garage...he has a nice area to build/slash destroy things and an area with his punching bag. Now I have my perfect crafty zone in our living room! Since I got my Cricut last April, I have taken my scrapping/crafting to a whole new level. It filled my summer and has made me soooo happy!

Shortly after getting my Cricut, I started buying lots of paper and supplies that were NEEDED! I then bought 3 Jetmax cubes and a ribbon organizer when everything was on sale on Black Friday. Here is my first crafty zone.
Functional, organized and perfect.

Then, I bought more things and more cubes. Expanded crafty zone.

Handmade (with love) ribbon organizer by my hubby, lots more cartridges and more paper!

Well, it didn't stop there. I love ribbon, I love paper and I love Cricut cartridges. Crafty zone #3.
I promised my hubby that I would not buy any more cubes because his chair kept getting pushed closer and closer to the television. Well, I didn't buy any more JETMAX cubes. But we did get a new couch and completely turn our living room on its head. I also got a new sweet zebra crafty chair---my first real crafty chair! I have used a fold up outside chair (not comfortable), a hard wooden kitchen chair (even less comfortable) and part of my theater seat (fairly comfortable, but awkward). I also got a proper desk to replace my fold up card table!

Here is my new, greatly improved and perfect crafty space!

I am in love! I haven't worked out all of the kinks but it is working great so far! A desk! A chair! A home for everything!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!!


  1. Great space!! Love your new chair!--Pat N.

  2. I love it! That zebra print goes great with all the white furniture and jetmax cubes! Great crafty zone. I also like how you call it zone, hehe. I have my craft corner because it really is only a corner of my room. Zone sounds friendlier :)

  3. Your space looks wonderful! You are so well organized!

    Isn't it funny how our supplies seem to "reproduce"?

  4. That is very exciting for you! It looks fantastic too!
