Hello all, I am so glad you are here.
Today we are doing something a big different with our blog post for the Cutting Cafe April 21st post. Normally we showcase projects using different sets from the site but today I thought it would be fun to share with you all our craft spaces....
I must say that I have came  A LONG WAY....and am truly blessed and thankful to actually have a INDOOR space.
Many of you that have known me from back in the Cricut Days or BITTEN BY THE BUG DAYS know that my space for 10 plus years was in a garage..
I made the mistake of when we purchased a new house to let my hubby have the office downstairs and I would make my office out in the garage and while we had plenty of rooms indoors, I had several children also....
So anyhoo fast forward.........HERE IS MY SPACE..........

 YOU CAN CLICK ON THE PHOTOS TO MAKE THEM LARGER....if you have any questions, feel free to email me.....
