DoubleClick Skittles Announcement, Craft Room Challenge, and Blog Hop

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome back to Carson's Creations! I have some EXCITING news to share today. I am joining Carri at DoubleClick Skittles once again to be a part of her amazing Design Team. We will be showcasing her Skittles embellishments while offering a challenge that you can join each week.
Today we are sharing our craft area. I do not have a "closed" room since both my kids still live at home, but I have an area that I have claimed in the house where I create my magic (or make a mess in some cases).

This is my craft table which holds both my Cricut Expression and Cameo (it is actually a shoe rack, but it fits my needs perfectly).  I have a carousel to the left that holds tools like chalk and watercolor pencils, glue pens, white jelly roll pens, and scissors. 

The side wall has two large storage shelves that hold boxes of some of my supplies. The boxes contain stamps, twine, flowers, Spellbinders. embossing folders, and a couple are holiday specific. The plastic bins contains my buttons, sequins, gems, and skittles. Next to them is a smaller shelf where my daughter's sewing machine rest...yes, like RIP...she never uses it! I should, but I have a heck of time changing the thread to a different color each time. I should try and practice...I know I would get quick at it...but it will RIP for now!

The opposite side of the room is my computer desk, but I have shelves on each side. To the left is some of my paper and card bases (along with a display of a few projects). 

To the right are my ribbon racks, Cricut cartridges, stickers, and more paper (not shown below). 

Next to my table is the last storage piece...a rolling cart that holds more ribbon, gems, craft thread, blades, and punches. Oh yeah...and my bucket of scrap paper just sits next to me so I can have it readily available.

Although I don't have a craft room I have made use of the space I do have.
