If you keep your Expression or Cameo out and ready to use at all times, I would love to know where in your space you keep it. I'm looking to reorganize a bit to make my E (which may get converted to a Cameo soon) more accessible all the time, and need some ideas. And if you have pictures and could link them up, I would be ever so grateful!

My scrap space is in the basement that I share with DH's office space. We have 2 desks that are joined by a middle connecting table (I hope that makes sense; it sort of is like a shortened U). In the middle of the desks we have our printer on a raised shelf, and my Cameo fits perfectly underneath that shelf. We put felt pads on the bottom of the Cameo and I just slide it forward if I'm using it, or it stores nicely under the shelf when not being used.

Mine has been on my 41 inch tall desk space, but I am moving it over to my 36 inch tall space because it is difficult for some of my shorter scrapping friends to use at that height. I keep it out so that I don't have to move it when the mat slides back as it cuts and that makes life easier.

I have a 2x4' glass-topped desk that I use a a work space, and then have a 6ft banquet table at a right angle with it that holds my Tonic trimmer, my E and my Cuttlebug. All I have to do is turn my chair to get to them. I use it much more since I re-arranged to this configuration.

My SD sits on my desk right next to my computer at all times! It gets used all the time so I need it to be out and ready to go! Before I upgraded to a Silhouette, my old resided in the box on the floor of my closet! I never used it, partly because it was a PITA to dig out and hook up every time I thought I might want to use it! Having the SD always available and ready to use has proven to be a good thing!

I just got my Cameo to replace my E. It sits on a small metal cart right next to my computer. It's on the top shelf, and the accessories (mats, vinyl, tools, etc.) are on the shelf just below. Works really well for me.

I bought a 3 shelf bookcase from ACM for $30. I have my E on one shelf, my Yourstory on another shelf and the top shelf is empty...saving that space for a Cameo

I bought one of those five-shelf wire units from Target recently when they were on sale. It's 72" high and I have my TV/DVD player on it, Cricut Expression2 and cartridges on it so far. I'm still reorganizing my scrapbook room to make it more efficient and less cluttery.

I have the original sill. but use it all the time.

My dad made me a cart that fits under my desk, on wheels, so I just roll it out when I want to cut something. I store my ink pads here too so they are within easy reach. Also photo paper, printer paper, etc.

It works perfectly and is out of the way when not in use.

Here is a picture: my sillhouette cart

My Expression sits on top of a stand that my MIL built for me that also holds my Imagine. A lady on the Cricut Circle messageboard had her husband built her one and she was kind enough to post the specs on the board. Here is a picture. The stand sits on a lazy susan so I can turn it to get to the back of the machines, or if I want to cut 12 x 24. The table it is sitting on is from IKEA. Very cheap and with the storage underneath it does the job well.

My scrap table is 3'x5'. My original Silhouette lives in the upper left hand corner from me, sideways to me. When I am actually using it, I pull it next to my laptop on my right and just go to town.

I have a L shaped table. My Silhouette and printer sit on the extension. I can easily reach them without needing to get up or move and they're both attached to the computer via extended usb cables.

When I had a Cricut I stored it under the table and pulled it out when I needed it (although I would tend not to pull it out)

I have a table from Ikea that has the legs extended as tall as they can go and my Cameo, Big Shot, and Cuttlebug sit on it. I used to have an Expression that sat where the Cameo does. It's always out, so easy to use all the time. One of my desks is to the right (L Shaped, but not connected) holds my computer. I have a 10ft. USB cable to connect the machines. Very convenient for me. Interestingly enough, I didn't use my Expression for well over a year and then bought a Sil SD, and now a Cameo. I use my Cameo all the time! Much simpler for me than cartridges, etc.....even though that's not the topic!

My cricut is living in it's box for a few months now. I have resolved to get it out and put it on my table and actually use it. Waiting on a few new carts to arrive to get me motivated. Need to get my moneys worth out of it and stop letting it collect dust.

I have a 6 foot long counter space and it sits on the counter, right on the end, easy to reach, ready when I need it.

I want to put mine on a throne! My Cameo is Queen!

Seriously, it lives in a pull-out cupboard, next to my printer, where my Cricut formerly lived.

My E sits at the end of my table on a row jetmax cubes. Easy for me to use and it has plenty of room for the mat to go through. All of my cartridges and mats live in a cabinet that is behind me to my right within easy reach. My laptop sits on top of the cabinet and is easy to connect to my E to use SCAL.

I have multiple cricuts strategically placed throughout my room. One is right next to me on my desk...the others are across the room on a metal rolling shelf. I use my Gypsy exclusively so my cartridges are packed away. The set up works...it is just a PITA when I have to bring my laptop in the room to cut something. I like to put my laptop up on a wire shelf so I can watch movies on it...but as far as being able to use it in my craft space...no room to work and type. One of the reason I love my Cricuts so...computer optional.

My craft room is up in the loft so I have a biggish room all set up for crafting. I keep my silhouette SD on my desk next to the computer. I have a corner computer desk, a set of drawers next to it and then my crafting desk. The SD sits beautifully between the PC and craft table. You can see my SD in the centre of the photo I have ordered a Cameo and that will simply take the place of my SD.

I have This table with the extensions so it makes a semi circle in the corner of my room and I have enough space for my expression to sit on the left end and my epson r1800 (wide format printer) to sit on the right end of the tablr
