New Craft room

My craft/scrapbook room is finally finished. After 6 months of rearranging and organizing, I am back in business!!! Here are pictures of it. I am so totally loving this room now. Thank you to my sweet, sweet, husband for all of your help in getting this room done. I organized everything into work stations. Above and below one table has all my stamp supplies. Another table has all my sewing, crochet ect... supplies. Another table has all my scrapbook supplies. Another table has all my jewelry findings and beads. Everything is labeled and easy to access. My most favorite thing in the room is my ribbon rack. I am a happy and now very organized crafter!!!
Today was such a fun day in my new craft room. My friend Dawn and her sweet daughter came over to hang out and we made some jewelry. I have gone to the craft shows several times this year and keep seeing these necklaces that look like picture frames. Finally found out that they are made using microscope slides and soldered metal. So her and I decided we must learn how to do this. Its the curse of the crafter. We have to know how to do it all. Anyways, we spent the week gathering all of our tools needed. Today was the big day to try and make a necklace. I wish I had pictures of hers to share. They turned out gorgeous. I still have not finished mine completely. Have some final touches to add. This is going to be a gift for my Bunko Christmas gift exchange. We were suppose to bring something handmade. I pounded my head all month and this is what I finally decided to do. I am excited to be giving this as a gift as I think it turned out very pretty. Here it is unfinished. I will post more pictures when its completed. Tomorrow we plan to get together again and make more. I have several people on my list that I think will love to have one of these necklaces. Hope everyone is having a great Christmas Season so far!!! Hugs!!!This is the back. Its the definition of sweet. I thought it was perfect for the picture on the front.Come back soon and see what else is going on in the new craft room!!!!
