Here's a bunch of pictures of my Stamp room. I wanted to take pictures before we moved so I would have them later. This is my current system but I have lots of areas to improve. (I had big plans for my office but shortly after I moved it to the basement we found out there was a possibility we would have to move). I stopped all construction at that point….the first item on my list is drawer pulls!!
The first picture is of my desk…this is where I check my email, post on my blog and anything that's computer work. I love my cozy corner but I'm looking forward to one day having a larger desk (like twice the size). I've had that chair since the year Dave & I got married 18 years ago & the desk was bright pink when I bought it for $75 in 1997…..I painted it myself 🙂
The next picture is what I like to call my Founders Circle shelf. I still can't believe I was there and I decided to dedicate the top of my book shelf to hold most of the goodies I received while there (boots were too tall to fit up there).
The next picture is of where I film my videos and stamp all my projects (this space is rarely this clean). The first order of business after I bought a sewing machine was getting curtains and trimming them so I could hide those wire organizers. To see the wire organizers you can find them in Angie's Stampin' Studio photo album on the right side of my blog.
The next space is where I store all my Stampin' Up! ink pads. We found them at Ikea. The drawers below hold all sorts of items like, In-Color sponges, Snail adhesive, Stampin' Dimensionals, trimmer blade refills, glue sticks and Mini Glue Dots. That area of my counter serves at my cutting and scoring area.
The next picture is of an item that always put a smile on my face. If you read the Simple Abundance book it tells you to have little things in your house that bring you joy or puts a smile on your face. Here's an example….. I'm a huge coffee drinker and I went to a antique store and bought myself 8 sterling silver spoons and I always use them to add my cream and sugar to my coffee. I keep them on my counter in one of those Longaberger booking baskets.
This little bucket with the chick on it serves as my trash can on my desk. When I'm creating I throw all the little pieces in there and I usually empty it at least once a day. I have a large trash can in my office but I keep it far away from my stamp area….I accidentally lost stamps because they would fall off my desk and into the trash.
The next picture is how I keep my most used punches at my fingertips. I bought it from my Pampered Chef demonstrator and I love it!! I have one for my favorite punches and one for all my tools that I like to have at my fingertips.
Next is how I store my ribbon, I have four drawers of ribbon. One is for all the current ribbon, one is for scraps, one is for retired and the other is extra rolls.
The next picture is of my coloring stuff….I have a drawer just like it for my Stampin' Write Markers and I keep them in baskets sorted by the color family.
The next few pictures are of my Big Shot Dies. I keep all the Alphabets and Sizzlits in one drawer. The regular dies in another and the extended by themselves in another. Then I have a 4th drawer that holds the Multipurpose Platform, Texturz Plates and Embossing Folders.
Here's where I store the rest of my punches ( I have two drawers of the Stampin' Up! punches).
Here's how I store my cardstock scraps (this drawer could use a make-over).
This drawer system is one I've shown you before …It's where I store all my reinkers, sponges and chalk refills. Next to it is where I have all my circle cutters (what can I say I was on a mission to find the best…..let me just say I wish we had a punch for every size).
And last but not least…this is what I use to label everything. My P-Touch 🙂 I use it to label everything!!!
If you did not see an area that you would like to see, let me know and I'll take a picture. These photos can later be found in the photo album "Angie's Stampin' Studio" on right side of my blog (or under photo gallery at the top under the banner).
Good night 🙂
