My little paradise

So I thought I'd share what my scraproom looks like! This first picture is the right side of my work space. The wall behind me here has two closets full of clothes and office supplies. See one of my kitties on the printer? I love my printer, it's older and slow, but it prints amazing photos. The filing cabinet below it holds copy paper and photo papers. The corkboard on the wall holds all my stickers except the ones about to fall off their sheets, those are in the plastic drawers to the left of the filing cabinet. I don't use stickers a lot, so I don't have very many. I need to come up with something else to fill the board up with, or just take it down - it was free anyway! The tool carousel on the table holds my scissors, rulers, small paper trimmer, x-acto knives, superglue and all my pens.

This is the left wall of my scrap space. The blue accent color reminded me of Tiffany & Co. which is why I fell in love with it. The top row of boxes have my old decorative edge scissors for which there is no longer a need. I want to find like a kindergarten class or something that could use them. I also store instruction manuals up on that top shelf. The second shelf of boxes is where I keep my photos and spools of thread. My darling husband installed the floating shelves for me, and then added the ribbon rack underneath! I keep a measuring tape on the rack with all the ribbon so I can easily pull out, measure and cut off exactly the right amount. Then on top of the bookshelves is my Xyron and Crop-a-Dile Big Bite. The little jars hold all my flowers. The plastic drawers contain tools, paint brushes, Q-tips, emery boards, adhesives, envelope seals, different rotary blades for my Cutterpede, a couple of wood handle stamps, and ribbon scraps. The blue bins hold my cardstock scraps organized by color, upper and lower case chipboard alphas, chipboard accents and mesh and tulle. The pink file organizes any holiday-specific items, then my scrapbooks are next to it, and the white binders are full of inspiration I've pulled out of magazines.

Last but not least here's my work space. I just upgraded from a teeny tiny student desk to this awesome craft table, and it's STILL not enough space! I get pretty messy. :D My paper rack is to the left of my desk, and holds ALL the cardstock organized by color and then by texture. The top few shelves of the rack have the huge patterned paper stacks from My Mind's Eye, which I am totally addicted to. The Cropper Hoppers on the floor have my Basic Grey and S.E.I. collections. The clear plastic drawers under the table that I like to stub my toes on hold all my blank cards, envelopes, kraft paper, vellum and stationary. The little tray on the table holds a few punches, the rest get scattered all over the place. The little black binder has my clear acrylic stamps, and the green cd holder to the right has my Stampin' Up! inks. To the right of that is another little stamp ink shelf just for all my Tim Holtz Distress inks, which I am also addicted to. Then there's my heat tool and the blue embellishment center where I keep all my brads, buttons, eyelets, metal accents, etc. I keep my Cutterpede trimmer, my Martha Stewart cutting mat and clear ruler, and my nonstick craft mat from Ranger on the table at all times. Oh ya - and this is actually decently clean for me! LOL
