My Space!

I took these pictures of my craft space the other week after my parents left. I am fortunate to have a craft room, but it also acts as our spare bedroom so I have to clean the room up when we have guests come to visit. I used to have a corner in our dining room, but three years ago when we had our basement finished, I had to have a room. I am not good about cleaning up after myself when I'm done with a project so I needed a door to close so I don't have to look at the mess. LOL! So here is the overview of my room. I work at the desk on the right and I have another desk on the left that holds an old computer (no internet access to this one), my Big Shot, and my Sewing Machine. Everything else is in the closet.
Here is a straight on view of my desk. All my large SU punches are mounted on the wall. I love having them right in front of me. I am going to add some shelves above those one of these days so I can clear off my desk even more. In my attempt to re-organize and add more storage space, I bought a few of those white scrapbook cubes after Christmas . I want three more and then I think my little unit will be complete. The drawers hold all my tools and unmounted non-SU stamps. You can see to the left of that is my ink storage unit. It is all cardboard, it has held up well over the past 6 years. It holds 64 ink pads. It sits on top of a Sterillite drawer unit (can you believe at one time I fit all my stamping and scrapbook supplies in those three drawers, hehehehe!) More punches, re-inkers, wheels, and alterable items are stored in there now. Next is my Cropper Hopper paper trolley. This was one of my first splurges when I became a demo and I really love how all my SU paper is there all together. The top is all 8 1/2 x 11 and the bottom holds all my 12x12 solid and designer paper. As you can see, I'm going to have to come up with more paper storage since these paper holders are filled to the max!Finally, a shot (a not so good one) of all my SU stamps. They fill the wire racks we had put into this closet. The rest of the room is crammed with stuff too, I'm not kidding. I really am busting at the seams. I am slowly weeding out lots of paper and business supplies that are outdated, but I hate to organize so I keep putting it off. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look into my little creative space! Yes, this is where I escape to, and I love it-clutter and all! Hugs, Lisa

  5. So fun to see this! It's funny how we started out the same. In our old house I started in the dining room too, and had a 3-drawer cart that fit ALL my stuff too! Now I'm in our unfinished cave of a basement and have junk everywhere. Thanks for sharing!
