Craft Room Wishlist

As my craft room is an utter disaster right now, I've been thinking about what I want to do to make it better, more usable. I have a table that's been in the garage, waiting for me to take it to the craft room, but I'm not sure where it will go or what it will be used for. So I need to figure that out.

BUT... one thing I do know is that I want a table in my craft room where all my little machines (Cricut, Cuttlebug, Xyron, Sewing) are all set up so I can use them when I want to. I tend not to use them because it's too much of a hassle to pull them out for one little thing. But I WOULD use them if they were already set up. So I need to make that happen. I should also re-evaluate the tools I have and whether I want to keep them, and where.

My dream is to have a craft space that is usable for the stage I'm at in life right now. I don't get down there for monster crafting sessions any longer. Most of the time I have just 30 minutes here or 30 minutes there to craft, and I need to make sure my room is set up for that sort of use. So #1 on my wishlist is a place for all my machines to be set up, ready to use at a moment's notice.

I have long admired your blog, and enjoyed your posts. I'm commenting on your craft room wishlist since that's where I'm working just now as well. My "craft room" has been dubbed my "Happy Place" by my sweet hubster. It was a front room which was unused, and he insisted I move all my scrappy goodies in there so they could be left out for use. I too have found that those awesome tools must be left out for easy use. I've been enjoying that room for four years now, and am constantly re-adjusting things in the Happy Place depending on the current "stage" my life is in. May your wishlist for your craft room be fulfilled!
