Hi everyone! So last Friday, I made an impromptu trip to IKEA and ended up buying stuff to reorganize a portion of my craft area. If you're like me, it's fun to get some new organization stuff every once in a while. Here are a couple pictures of what I did.
Here is my main area, which is off the family room (on the left). Yeah, I admit it, I have organized clutter everywhere. Every surface of my craft area has a box/container of some sort with my stuff in it. But, hey, I like things out where I can see them!
This is under my desk. Because my desk faces a window, don't have a lot of wall space for shelves and such, so I utilize EVERY INCH of floor space I have. I bought a couple Billy height extension unit pieces (both the 20" and the 32" sizes). Technically, they are supposed to go on the top of the bookcases, but I used them on the floor to give me a sturdy way to have extra shelf space. I installed under mounted lighting (also from IKEA) to help me see where things are when I craft at night.
The white boxes are Kassett boxes, they are a stiff cardboard material and work perfectly for stamps, ribbons, buttons etc. I keep my Gina K stamps in A5 clear 3 ring binders which I buy online at Univenture. The middle shelf on the left are all my AMuse stamps and those colorful plastic organizers (between my Gina K stamp binders) are from Joanns (Jewelry section) and I keep all my buttons in them sorted by color.
Here is under the left side piece of the desk where I keep all my cardstock (Gina K, Amuse and Bazzill Card Shoppe) and my May Arts ribbon.
Here is a close up of how I store some of the ribbons from The Stamp Simply Ribbon store. I use the clear plastic boxes and sort the ribbons by category (silk, stripes, ric-rac, etc). They help me keep my ribbons neat and organized. You can see them behind my cardstock in CD boxes I bought at Target.
Here is the top of my work space. I have a slight addiction to inks and am constantly struggling how to store them. On the left I have my AMuse and SU inks in the SU ink holder with extension (I have so outgrown this). On the right I have my extra inks and all my Gina K inks. The top of the 4 tiered unit is supposed to be for ribbon, I removed the ribbon rod and I now use it to hold embellishments and more inks.
Here is how I store my newly purchased sequins (love these)! I had these little plastic containers from my friend Heidi who used to have an online store. They held Dew Drops remember those from years ago?
While I was doing the reorganizing/ spring cleaning, I found some extra goodies that could use a new home. So I have a giveaway!
Here is what I have to pass on:
Paper Creations, Spring issue
Brand new GCD and Pink Paislee Christmas (used 3 sheets) paper packs
Corduroy brads, wooden buttons, wood veneer shapes, ribbon, flowers, buttons and bling!
To be entered, just leave me a comment here on this post and I will pick a winner on Sunday, May 5th.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
