I have no "before" picture, but it was cluttered. It was filled with business stuff - signs, clothes, high chairs and potty seats ready to go to the swaps, stuff to be sorted, a money box, and, oh yes, some crafty things.
I've spent some time over the past few months weeding and re-establishing my craft area. Here's the big reveal.
To get to my craft area, you go through the rest of the living room. From this view, you can see my daughter's toys in the foreground and my craft area in the back.
My daughter and my husband know not to go into my craft area by themselves. It's mommy's special space.
From left to right, you can see the block of the month quilt that I finished in December, my ironing board, my table (for cutting, sewing, and jewelry making), an old cd cabinet which I've converted to hold various supplies like zippers, and the book shelf.
More details in the pictures below. I hope you enjoy this tour as much as I enjoy creating in my craft area.

|I love these little drawers and the books. The books tell the story of how my crafty passions have changed over time.|
