I got my own ROOM!

Just wanted to share really quick that I now have my own little crafting room/office area. In the past, my stuff was in a 6 x 10 area of our family room, and my kids had a playroom. The playroom became a junk room, and they never actually *played* in it.

I'd been thinking about switching the rooms, but I wasn't sure what my husband or my kids would say. As soon as my husband mentioned that we should do something else with that room, I jumped. "Well, you know, honey, I was thinking..." :-) He went for it! So I got the playroom and the boys toys are now organized in what was my crafting area.

My older son even said, "Mommy, thank you for our new toy area. I really like your new office!"

Originally, it was our guest room, then it was a nursery (twice), and then the playroom. So I didn't have to paint it, and the carpet is still in relatively good shape. It took me a while to get it organized -- those Jetmax cubes are great, but a pain to put together -- and it's not completely organized (you'll see schtuff on my desk and in corners still), but it's getting close enough to take pictures.

Now, I have to get a baby card done (SIL had a daughter yesterday) and my holiday cards. I'm just so psyched that I have my own space that I can keep relatively clean so when we have guests, we don't have to sprint to get all the toys and papers off the floor of the room, lol!

Thanks for looking!

First pic is a view from the north door (there are two doors, as this used to be the back of the house before the addition was constructed). Second pic is the east wall. Third pic is the west wall, and last pic is the view from the south door.

Very nice. I'm jealous, I have my own room but it is an L shaped room and very hard to store things in. But at least it is not out in the family room so I am very thankful for that.
