Where Bloggers Create 2013

This is my second year to participate in My Desert Cottage’s blog party! Here is last years post. Not a whole lot has changed in the room since last year. I added a couple pieces of furniture to the room and re-organized. I can’t wait to browse everyone’s inspiring spaces and I hope you enjoy mine as well!


Here is the room as you walk up from the stairs, Caleb sits at the table in the middle to do crafts, color, work on letters, etc.

DSCN8096My desk in the corner where I do all of my crafting (mostly I scrapbook).

DSCN8106The brown cabinet w/ cubby holes holds all of Caleb’s art supplies and learning tools. He loves having everything where he can easily get it out and isn’t difficult for him to put things back himself.

Some more pictures of the desk and my craft organization using beautiful Longaberger baskets:




DSCN8097I keep supplies for current projects and frequently used supplies in the desk while bulk storage such as stamps and paper pads are stored in the large armoire.

The opposite wall of the room with the  dresser and armoire for storage:

The armoire is new since last year and has added so much storage that I actually have an empty drawer in my desk! (which never, ever happens).  🙂   I hope you enjoyed my space!

God Bless, Allison
