HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I was so ready for some changes to my stampin area! My VERY ORGANIZED friend Tabitha was over the day before and I was talking to her about
“I wish my stuff was all together….my Big Shot stuff was together, my stampin supplies surrounded my work table….etc.”
So she jumped up and grabbed my measuring tape and we started measuring cabinets and wall space.
The analytical side of her wanted to draw it all out and plan how things would work.
The “I gotta get this done quick” side of me was thinking…ya, I don’t have time for that!
Since I was in the middle of “cleaning” up my stamp studio from recent classes all I could focus on was that I had to find a home for all of the class supplies before I could move on to the next project!
The next morning I was very motivated to start moving furniture!
But, before you can do that you have to make a mess!
You have to take thinks off of the cabinets and pile them on the tables!
Below are some new clear containers that are plastic and see thru that I bought to hold my adhesives on my tables. Now everyone can “see” which adhesive they are looking for!
So my plan is to sit by the window and work on my computer, then when an idea hits me I am in my stamp studio!
Before my computer was in another room.
If I left my studio to go to the computer I would get distracted and forget what I was doing!
The display cabinet below is from Ikea.
The drawers hold my punches!
The cabinet doors hide my stashes!
Sometimes I forget what I put in those!
I had to look recently when Tabitha asked me
what was in there!
I have two more paper racks and now that I have rearranged my room I have plenty of room to bring those in and sort my paper and have it organized better!
This small bookcase works perfectly to hold my boxes of cards! I have different sizes of containers and was pleased to see that they all fit very well on the shelves!
This cabinet is in my foyer area when everyone comes in they can see my display on top of NEW SPRING MINI Starts January 3, 2013 get your copy NOW!!!
AND Saleabration items!(Starts January 22- do you have your SAB catalog yet? Contact me for yours today!)
Note how the shelf above holds my Big Shot storage boxes from Stampin’ Up!
Clear mount stamps area…Clear Block holder by Stampin’ Up! has been decorated with flowers on the outside with our old Decor Elements.
The clear stands are DVD stands that I got from the Container Store. They cost $9.95.
So do you see the small box that says STAMPS?
I found that at Kirklands the other day and figured out that it holds the SINGLE STAMPS that Stampin’ Up! has been selling!
My room looks cozy and inviting. I have always tried to make it inspiring for those that come to stamp with me at my clubs and classes.
Since I posted a few pictures on Facebook yesterday I realized that I should share my creative space with those who can’t attend!
Tabitha mentioned that I needed to organize inside of my cabinets. I told her that I had just done that. However, now that I have moved them around I will be tweaking the insides.
I will take pictures of inside and post soon.
I have a crafting retreat this weekend and leave for it tomorrow. So I have to get ready for that.
Ya’ll check back often!
I will post more soon!
(oooo I can post what I create at my retreat!)
