My Organized Craft Room

Hello everyone! This past week I have been organizing and cleaning up my craft room. It is located in our finished basement and has been a mess for such a long time. This project has been way over due and it's so nice to finally be done.

All of my scrapbooking supplies and stamps are organized and labeled. 

More storage for all my supplies . . .

Have you seen the new Ball Heritage Collection Jars? They feature a vintage-inspired blue tint and will be available this spring.  I love the blue/aqua color! I used some to store craft supplies and one as a vase.

This table was in our dining room (now library). We were going to sell it on Craigslist but decided to move it to the basment instead. I love having a huge table to use for scrapbooking. 

More glass jars hold craft supplies and the calendar my daughter made for me is hanging where I can see it. She makes me a calendar every year for Christmas. 

This tray holds more craft supplies and a few fun accessories. It's a wood tray from Target that I painted and added wrapping paper to the bottom. I love that it can be easily moved around and keeps everything organized in one place.

I added colorful washi tape to the plain Ikea magazine holders. Some subway art and "create" artwork add fun and color.

Now that everything is organized I plan on doing some serious scrapbooking!

Spring . . . where are you?

Hey my friends! Thank you so much for all the kind and sweet comments you left about my last post. I really appreciate the support and prayers from you all. 

I finally have some updated photos to share with you today. The sun was shining so I was able to get some good pictures. 

The calendar says it's spring but apparently Ohio didn't get the message. We've had below average temps and now a winter storm is coming this weekend. Yes people. We are talking about SNOW! A LOT of SNOW! 

It may still feel like winter outside but inside it feels like spring. I gathered all my speckled eggs, birds and nests to decorate a few areas in my house.

I LOVE these kitchen towels from Marshalls. They are so bright and cheery. 

While I had some great natural light, I took some updated photos of my kitchen. 

I used a round cutting board that I had to display my Mrs. Meyer's cleaners and dish soap. I love the aqua and green together!

The EAT letters and fork & spoon got an update with some paint. I like them so much better painted white!

Happy Spring and have a great weekend!
