The Den of Craftiness - pretty much everyone's favorite room in the house!

Thanks to my sister-in-law's unrelenting dog earring and scribbling amongst the pages of her magazines I discovered the absolutely, positively BEST idea for getting my cluttered little craft room...wait for it.....GASP....organized!  If the rest of you are even a little like me then you know how crazy things get trying to create the tiniest of projects!  The pins, needles, thread, scraps, cutting utensils, etc for a sewing project or the scissors, glue sticks, chip board letters, stickers and billions of scrapbooking paper options trying to put your memories on paper can be ridiculous.  And, who wants to clean everything up when your still in the middle of a project?  Nobody, that's who!  Thankfully, in our new home I have a cozy little crafting oasis that is all my own!

And the project half of a giant piece of peg board I picked up at Home Depot.  I cut it in half and gave Adam the other half for hanging his tools. I happened to have this fabulous limey spray paint hanging around which made the boring brown peg board definitely craft room worthy.

The finished peg board, which I needed to shorten in order to fit on the wall, worked out great as it gave me another small piece to mount over my sewing machine!  I also outfitted it with an all-in-one 60 piece peg board hardware set - it even came with cute little hanging jars for buttons and fasteners!

These boxes are my attempt at organizing my fabric....they are currently overflowing!

The amazing quilt I received as a bridal shower gift from a friend of my mom and the homemade chalk board (fiber board + chalkboard spray paint + my sisters unyielding creativity) Ad and I used for our 'candy store' at our wedding!

Ewww, I didn't notice until now how blurry this was.  Oh well!  I got baskets to organize all of my wrapping paraphernalia.

I hope everyone gets a chance to create their own 'Den of Craftiness' and that you love it as much as I love mine!
