The Craft Room in my home is my favorite room in the house. When creating the craft room, my first thought was which craft activities I wanted to explore.  I decided that I wanted to go gift wrapping, vinyl crafts, t-shirts, wood appliqués, jewelry making, pillow cases, throw pillows, card making, paper crafts, sewing, embroidery, and most of all decorating.

I knew that I needed a place to store both my equipment and supplies in my craft room, so I purchased two (2) oversized cabinets from Lowes to store my equipment and supplies.  I also decided that I wanted some open shelving for some of my equipment and I wanted island storage cabinet for my gift warp center.

I purchased opening shelving from IKEA to store my SilhouetteCameo, Singer Sewing Machine, an Embroidery Machine.  I purchased in-stock cabinets from Lowes (Diamond NOW), to assemble my gift wrapping island/center, for the purpose of storing my gift wrap resources and other items.  On my L-shaped countertop I placed my heat press, my hat press, my computers, and markers.  I use the surface to work on my projects.  I have a desk that I use when I am sewing and also to hold my master (default) printer on the top of its surface.  each side of the desk has surfaces and places for sorting and storing books, magazines, and paper.  I also keep my office products inside my desk drawer.

This Ultimate Craft Room has been a Dream Come True!!!

Black History Month

Black History Month is an annual observance originating in the United States, where it is also known as African-American History Month. It has received official recognition from governments in the United States and Canada, and more recently has been observed in Ireland, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. It began as a way of remembering important people and events in the history of the African exodus. It is celebrated in February in the United States and Canada, while in Ireland, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom it is observed in October.

Although the Trans-Atlantic slave trade brought a majority of the slaves to the United States, many Africans also migrated to the United States voluntarily. Today, many people continue to emigrate from various countries in Africa to the United States. The number of African-born Americans has increased from 1,183,316 in 2000 to over 1,676,413 in 2010. The top countries of origin for the African-born people living in the United States include Kenya, Ghana, Egypt, Ethiopia, and Nigeria. The United States has an African Diaspora population of over 46.4 million people which is about 13.6% of the entire country’s population.  This is the 2d largest diaspora population in the world to Brazil which is Number 1.
