My Newly Organized Craft Room :)

It may not look like much, eventually I'd like to put some cute stuff on the walls! But I love it! It's super functional and the kids are able to come in and out without getting into too much.
Below is my sewing table, in the back left corner is my die cuts for my accu quilt, I love having the serger and sewing machine set up full time so I can use either one whenever I want.
Along this wall I have my wonderful desk that I painted last August, I love it! I have a laptop and my new Silhouette set up on there - and yes people, I finally opened it and used it this week :) Can't wait to try more with it!!! Those two messy baskets underneath are all my fabric scraps - I plan on getting to work on using up some of those soon so that they'll fit in one basket!
In between the desk and table are my bookshelves - both were free so it worked out great to put all my stuff onto it! On the left the top shelf is a basket full of serger thread, a roll of elastic lace, 2 boxes of holiday embroidery thread and a pouch full of regular sewing thread. The second shelf has a basket full of patterns, a cute round box full of ribbon and a basket full of yarn and ornaments. Then the last three shelves house almost all of my fabric...I love how pretty it looks all organized! The shelf on the right has some more fabric, baker's twine, squares cut and ready to sew for some rag quilts. A basket full of craft paint and different glue's. A basket full of cards and stationary, A shelf full of Sunday coloring books for the kids, some things that need to be framed eventually, stamps and scrap booking, and at the bottom some finished pillow cases, receiving blankets and some more squares that are cut and ready to sew into rag quilts.
A better view of the pretty fabric! I bought comic book backing boards and wrapped my fabric around them. I bought mine for 9.50 at a local comic book shop, it was a pack of 100 and I have 3 left! Woot! The green tote right under the table houses my accu quilt cutter.
Well I think that's pretty much it, it's super functional for me and I love my new craft corner/room! Sorry the lighting was so bad in the pictures! But you get the gist of it :)
**Here's my previous craft room, we moved it over a room since we have a little girl on the way, my previous craft room was painted pink, but i love the blue in this room :)
