Today I want to give you a tour of my craft room.

My craft room is never clean enough to get pictures to show you where all the magic happens.  While it was pretty clean the other day so I snapped a few picture...well actually I just moved some of the clutter around so it doesn't show in the pictures.

First, here's the latest piece I bought when I spent the day with my girlfriends at Ikea a few weeks back  I love it.  It works perfectly for all my fabrics.  I love seeing all the colors on the fabrics; it hopes get my creative juices flowing.

I found these adorable words: CRAFT, SEW, and CREATE.  They weren't all the right colors of my room, but that's the beauty of spray paint.  They add so much to the room.

Next is my cutting table.  I've had this for about 1 1/2 years.  A friend of mine, Nat, was remodeling her kitchen and was going to throw out her old cabinets.  At the same time, I found a blog that had a posting about a crafting table they made from some old kitchen cabinets...a lightbulb went off in my head.  I had Mike screw the cabinets together and I painted them to my :)

It works great and it's at a perfect height for me to use it as a cutting table and to do my other crafts.

Note the pictures hanging on the wall... my twins made those at school!!! They were the right colors for this room, so I just had to put them in here.

Finally, here's my sewing table.  I love having everything I need at my fingertips.  

I hope you like my craft room as much as I do.  I am so blessed to have this room all to myself; a place where I can close the room and not have to see the mess that I usually leave behind. :)

I just LOVE the color on your walls in your craft room! Could you tell me where you bought it and what it's called? Oh, and Josh and I are living in Wayland until we can sell our home in Missouri, we should get the kids together sometime! I also need to order another Thallie bag from you for my friend who just had a baby boy. I will get with you on that sometime soon, thanks Cara.
