Hobby Hut

Here is a photo of the new hobby cabin that my sweetheart bought for me last week. I think he may have just wanted all of my stuff out of the house! Barry worked nonstop to insulate, panel and wire my cabin. I have a phone line and satellite tv too! The fall flag was a Christmas gift from my daughter last Christmas. It says "Steph's Hobby Hut" The benches on the front porch were made for me by my friend Shannon's Dad. They fit perfectly. There is a Welcome sign on the front wall (hanging in the shadow beside the front door) that was a gift from my Mom when I got my first apartment in 1986. Yep, I hang on to things! My friend Vicki was here yesterday. She said she would dig up some flowers out of her yard to landscape around my porch. I am so blessed with great friends and family!
Below is the corner for my Revolution station and my embellishment collection (well, some of it)

This is a view of one of my windows. I have 3 windows and each has a fabulous view of the fall colors on the trees outside right now. This summer, I will be able to see the kids in the pool from one of the windows too. The curtains were nearly a steal from Pottery Barn. They were 70% off Saturday! Great since I had to buy 4 to cover 3 windows and the door. Under the window is my collection of Stampin Up ink pads. I have to break down and buy the turnabout thing for those soon! There is quite a collection of Sizzix dies and Stampin Up stamp sets on the shelves to the left. My Cricut, light box, and paper trimmer are on the rolling storage drawers which contain all of my punches and some other goodies within reach. See the beautiful yellow and orange maples out my rear window! I keep this curtain tied up when I am in here!
Below is the other shelf on the other side of the rear window. It has paper blocks, card idea magazines and more embellishments in baskets. In this photo, you can see the cord for the light that I hung over my table this morning. I will have to have an extension cord for the shop light. Then the cord can be hidden in the rafters for the loft. I have 2 loft areas for extra storage. Barry is putting me a small refrigerator in this weekend. Drop by for a cold beverage sometime!
Let me know you are coming! Because I also have an alarm on my building. My silly son said "Mom, nobody wants your craft stuff" Well, I ain't taking no chances! See ya soon.
Thanks for looking. Hope you are having a wonderful day.
