Mom Cave Monday

I have done several Met Monday posts on the renovations of my Mom Cave. I didn't know that was the name of it though, until I decided to do this post! This room previously, was an unuseable area, just because of the lack of organizion. I hired a professional organizer to come in and design what I needed, and took a giant leap forward to the below results. I sometimes just walk in there, look around and LEAVE!
This is the sewing station. The drawers to the right hold everything I need at the sewing machine. Threads, bobbins, scissors, extra pair of bifocal's - you name it. To the right, is the below cabinet.
Look at this cabinet! Full of fabrics, piled in colors, love, love, love it!
This is my scrapbook station. It also serves as a great place to put my tabletop ironing board while I'm sewing, so I can sew, and press, all withing easy reach.
This drawer is awesome! It's deep, it's wide, it shallow, so it holds all the things I need for a scrapbook project. As you can see, it's full. So, I need to get busy!
This is the bill paying station. Complete with everything within reach to pay bills. Checkbook, envelopes, stamps, address labels, computer, pens/pencils, and a calendar. It almost makes it fun!
This is my computer station, where I archive, print, or whatever I'm doing with photos. To the right (seen in the bottom right) is a bank of drawers with the storage as described below.
This drawer is for CD's, blank and full. Within easy reach when I'm blogging. Also, there's printer cartridges and about anything else I could need when archiving photos.
This drawer holds greeting cards, and those every loving address labels that come by the 100's at our house! Also, a small photo printer - what every photographer has to have.
Thanks for joining me as I join others at the Mom Cave post, which can be found at the below link:

  3. That is awesome, and so very organized. My kids wouldn't be able to stand themselves, they'd have to "rearrange" those drawers lol!

  6. Very nice Mom Cave...now all's you need are some dream boards and perhaps a mirror for more light reflecting off your big window and you sure can find those things at HomeGoods. Best of luck, fondly, Roberta
