My Craft Makeover Haul & GIVEAWAY!!!

Hi Friends,
Just popping in rather quickly to let you all know I'm feeling much like myself again and what I've been up to. Michael's had this Super Duper sale last week and I just couldn't pass those deals up. I've been struggling a lot with the Craft Corner I have, which is part Family Office/My Craft Space. To make a long story short, the space just isn't big enough for both functions (at the same time). It kills my mood of crafting a lot because of all the moving around of things I have to do just to use my Cricut or craft anything. Anyhew... can you say... "tax refund"... Whoo Hoo! Mine came way before I thought it would, but right on time for me to catch this sale that was going on with Michael's (40% off Storage, plus additional 20% off Entire Purchase Coupons) regarding their storage items. Needless to say I racked up, Big Time!. Now hopefully I will be able to breathe and keep up with all that I have and maintain a somewhat organized lol) Craft Space. Here are some of the items I bought. I'm not sure how I'm going to arrange everything yet, but I'm searching the internet like crazy to get ideas.
  Here's a close-up below of some individual photo items. 
DH will have his hands full, putting these pieces together. **(sn: I'm a little nervous because now this will expose my hoarding "Obsession" of craft items to Dear Hubby)**. Let's pray he doesn't leave me because of it, (LOL!). I have to keep in mind that I have one side wall space that sits under a window (44"H x 60"W) I will be putting these against. My dream is to some day have my very own "Craft OASIS Room" until then, I'll make it work with the space I have. I'll certainly be sharing some Before & After photos as things progress. In the meantime, I would love to see what many of you have done with the "small to medium" craft spaces or craft rooms you have. On that note... Let's HAVE A GIVEAWAY! It's been quite some time since I had one and I recall promising to do one right after I had my Blog-Makeover, oh well... no excuses, I was just plain lazy about it and didn't get around to it. Soooo, I'm having...
"A Be-lated Blogaversary/Blog Makeover Giveaway"
All you have to do is share pictures of your craft space and/or storage ideas by linking your photo below. (You can provide additional photos on your blog that show more details and other areas of your Craft Space). You don't have to have some elaborate fancy room or space. If you're willing to share then link it up. (Storage Ideas, Craft Spaces, Organization Tips/Techniques, Do's & Don'ts, What works or doesn't for you...Whatever!) I will keep the link open for 2-weeks and random.org will help me select a winner to receive some Craft Goodies I have for 1 or maybe 2 lucky persons. I have some great sponsor gifts that I haven't given out yet and this will be a perfect time to do so. So go on now, upload those photos! Can't wait for you to share. Smooches...


  1. Wow, you got a lot of things, it would take me several months of buying to get my space to be the way I want it, but for now this works for me. I did a spring clean craft room with Cori at the end of March and that is the link to it! I can't wait to see yours!!

  2. HI Felicia, I am new to your site and I am new to scrapping. I made a storage that can hold markers and inks on my blog. If you would like me to link it here as an organization idea, Please let me know. I love your sense of humor and I also have a tiny room used both for craft and office, so I was in the same boat as you(well that is until that Micheal's sale came up). It seems with all you bought, you won't have no problems with organizing your craft stuff. I also have a wall with a window on it(not much I can put there Bummer). OH, Hope your bug crept away and your feeling better. Hugs and God bless!

  3. Thanks so much for the chance to win.
    I just love the Michaels storage boxes. I have a bunch in my room. The link I left is of my desk in my craft room. I have tons more pics on my blog under the Craft Room tab.
    Can't wait to see your finished room!
    Hopefully your hubby doesn't wig out when he sees all your craft goodies! LOL!

  4. Whoo hooo!!! Great deals on the craft storage. Can't wait to see it all come together. I would love to enter this challenge also. I just need to take some time to take pic of my room.


  5. Holy WOW!!! That is a lot of shelving and storage!!!! I can't wait to see how it all turns out. Before and after pics are awesome!

    I linked my craftroom re-do post (which you've already seen a long time ago!) in case you wanted to go back and look at a few of the storage solutions again, now that you're re-doing your room. My room has changed so much since that post, I really need to take some updated pics. The room was all nice and streamlined and uncluttered back then. But since then, I've filled it up!!! And it's only been like 8 months!! So be careful...all your new storage cubes are going to be full in no time!

  6. I'm so happy for you! Looks like you got some good deals! Can't wait to see the finished product! Melissa Candy, & Amy E have some cool spots too you can take tips for your storage boxes!

  7. You made out like a bandit!! Great stuff...be sure to share the after pictures. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm now following you too!!


Thanks so much for the Craft Love...
