my room

Well people have been dying to see where all my creative time is spent, so here it is! Don’t mind the mess it was along day of stamping he! he! Plus when your workspace is only about 10 x 6 you can only CRAM so much in.

You all know I’m a shop-a-holic, so now you get to see how bad it really is. I have only been addicted for 3 years. I am definitely outgrowing my space.

So the top photo is the view from the door. My area in an semi-unfinished area in our basement at the bottom of the cellar stairs. I do have heat, and a mini heater for those chilly months.

Its not much but its mine! I use to have NO MYTIME SPACE, but a large bin that I would drag out to stamp at the kitchen table. Holy creative blocker. Its hard to get crafty doing that. So DH spent a weekend for Christmas making me my very own space. I love it.

While it looks messy its actually pretty well organized.

I have 2 ink caddy’s. One for craft, the other for classic ink. On top of the caddy’s I have stickles, 2 way glue, and other little things like that. On my desk I have a clear stackablecontainer with blender pens, embossing powder, tags, and all kinds of other stuff. I also have my reinkers, and other stuff like embossing powders, pearl ex, envelopes and whatnot in a closed 2 door cabinet.

My ribbon is in like 50 containers! LOL! SU are in the SU ribbon holders, but the others are in tupperware type holders that stack.

All my stamps are on my open shelves, organized by bkgds, sentiments, kid, all occasions, and flowers etc. If it retired, a mini catalog, or discontinued it goes in a separate shelf so I can keep track.

I have my super paper holder, which are organized by colors like blues, greens and what not. Designer paper is under the my counter, in paper storage holders.  I have a big ol scrap container on my desk in the corner. Its out of control full again, so I need to go reorganize it. I do have it seperated by blues, green,s and what not! (you can see the retired sets and stuff stored there too)

Under my desk is my SU! Business stuff. Soon that will be gone. I also have a huge bin of MUST HAVE alterable items! LOL!

On my counter I have my sizzix and cuttlebug stuff. That needs to be within reach at ALL times!

On the walls I have cheap fabric shoe holders from Target! 2 for $1.50!!!! Theystore my ATG gun, color spritzer, label maker, sponges, rubber brayer, dimesionals, all kinds if stuff. I have another that hold my crimper, crop a dile, metal sheets, other fun items. AND one more that holds all my punches!


Now there is the wire crate organizer. That holds more NON su stamps like my acrylic ones from all my favorite companies, alterables, more SU business stuff, my xyron 900, light table, shrinky dinks machine, PRIMAS!!!! Stuff like that!

WHEW! Well thats it. Its not glamorous and goreous like alot of the toip stampers rooms, but its my space and it serves it purpose! The kids can’t touch my stuff, and I can create and make my mess with out worry.

 Stay tuned tomorrow so I can share some fun goodies I made today! I will also be announcing the winner of MYTIME MAIL!!!!
