For an updated look at my craft studio, please click HERE.
A couple weeks ago I had my husband hang another shelf and some cork boards above my computer desk in my craft studio which is in our basement, afterwards I cleaned up and decided to take a few shots. No its not always this clean especially if I'm in the middle of creating a card, most of the time you can hardly see the counter top when I get going. I try to keep myself fairly organized because it's such a small space, but it's my space and I love it.
Most of my smaller SU word stamp sets I keep above my work area along with my back ground stamps and the rest I keep in my closet organized according to theme. I keep loose cut ribbons in a candy jar, buttons in these little stack able containers I found at Joann's, flowers in larger jars and all of my brads and doo dads in Art Bin containers. I keep my embossing folders and Spellbinder dies in a green bin directly above my cutting area (the rest of my Sizzix dies are in drawers) and I love the white rain gutter that my husband cut and hung for all of my ribbon. I keep white, neutral and the SU In Colors sitting at the end of my work space along with my 12"x12" designer papers. The rest of my paper is stored underneath in the cabinets in hanging file folders.
Below is a shot of the other side of the room where my computer desk is. The shelf and three squares of cork board are the new additions to the room, before this wall was bare but now I can pin up notes, cards and messages with either magnets or push pins (I found these at Joann's on sale). Above the cork boards I have boxes for photos to scrapbook one for each of my kids and one for family. The walls in my room are painted a pale yellow, I wanted a warm sunny color since I'm in the basement.
At each end of the room I have matted and framed Mary Engelbreit prints, two of my favorites of hers (I adore her work and have for years). The one above my work area reads: To love what you do and feel that it matters-how could anything be more fun? and the other print reads: Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% what you do with what happens to you.
