Creating a craft room, or how I plan on getting organized

Even though football is taking up way too much of my time, when I do get a moment to do something crafty, I panic.
My basement was reorganized a few months ago to help me get organized, but it didn’t work out as planned. Because I didn’t have great storage, after I finished a project, I didn’t know where to put my fabric/tools/paper/scissors, etc. 
I plan on fixing that.  Today I installed an L-shaped craft desk.  It will be trimmed out and painted, baskets added to house all of my “stuff”, shelves installed with more storage. My hope is that there is a place for everything and everything in it’s place.
And lest you think that I’m the only one in this house that likes to create, I am going to show you what my daughter (she is 12) has been working on. This is part of her Halloween costume. It’s a wolf head that she puts on over her head. She paid for the materials herself and other than some guidance, has done everything herself.
She still has the eyes to do and a few touch ups on the mouth. I’m very proud of her effort.
