Update at the bottom of the page!!
Ok, first I must apologize to all of my swap partners, since at times this became my priority instead of crafting for them. But once I had a clean space, it was difficult to start a new project without cleaning the first one up. That must say good things for me and the future of the space XD On to the pictures!
This is sort of what it looked like before, but I had a lot of stuff in storage in my room at my parents house.
I told my boyfriend that this just wasn't working and he had a spare bedroom that he wasn't really
using and being an art major I just had
to have a room where I could shut the door and work on my art. Since my grades depend upon it
so he let me move my stuff into here.
As you can see, it was still a mess, but now a contained mess that he didn't have
to look at.
Well I was on a roll! I kept cleaning and organizing, while still trying to work in there and this is what it looks like currently. While it still needs some work, I am just loving the space!
My poor printer will not fit where I keep my laptop, so any time I want to print or scan I come in here to do it, hence the cord.
And some close ups on my favorite parts.

Things left to do:
Organize the two corners of the room
Utilize the closet better
Organize the drawer units
Put magazines in holders
Set up photo printer
Set up printing center
Bring the rest of my crap over from my parents house (I know, this isn't all of it >.<)
Whew, this post was a long time coming! I am so excited to show off my space, even if it is not super decorative! And I would love to hear what everyone has to say. Any ideas on decoration? I can't put holes in the walls or paint since my boyfriend is renting the place. But I think I just might put a few holes in the walls just so I can put up all of the cool stuff I receive in my swaps!
