Craft Space

Since I am in Chicago at CHA, I thought I might share my craft room with all of you.  I have acquired 3 sets of drawers from Mike's, and I can't believe how much they have helped to clean up my space!  When looking at the pictures, it still seems messy but really -- it is so much better!  The amount of "stuff" I have at times just amazes me -- like really?  You NEED all this stuff? --- of course I do! :)
One side of door.  The outside of the door has another shoe holder filled with punches too

My peg board wall of ribbon - sorted by color

 Some of my inks
 and the rest of my inks.  Crazy huh??

See the copics on the shelf?
 Here is a close up -- this is an outside drain spout cut in sections!!  It works so well to sort my copics by color.  Love this tip I picked up from someone over at Splitcoaststampers!
 This is my cutting area - paper scrap area (yes, those are kitty liter waste holders - bottom left (new ones BTW :) , and the dresser drawers are holding my Stampin Up stamps (that so need to be inked or sold...)

This is my photo box and see those boxes on the right -- ALL EXTRA CARDS I have made.  What am I suppose to do with boxes of cards!!  Akkk~
Actually, eventually I will set up a website and try to sell these.  Easier for people to look that way since I have found I do not do well at Craft Fairs.  I am not one to say "See how pretty my stuff is".

Here are the new drawers!  I love the clear front to see what is in them, along with the height; 14" - I still can have a self on top of the drawers and have extra room in between for my MFP stamps in cd holders.

This dresser holds my GKD stamps while the top of it gives me added spread space when stamping. This is to the left of my chair.

And this is my overall space
 I do love my craft room.  This is a god thing since I spend way to much time in here :).  I am sure I will be adding more with my purchases from CHA! I will be sharing photos of my trip and meeting fellow stampers when I get home.

I hope that may be I gave you an idea or 2 while touring my craft space.  I love looking at other's spaces -- some if the ideas are so clever and out of the box~ I love that!
Thanks for stopping by~

How fun to see your craft space. Now I can picture you in there working away :) You sure have a lot of inks LOL! As for extra cards, you can send some to Operation Write Home or the Chemo Angels etc. Lots of good causes. Look forward to seeing pics from CHA :)

It was a grand tour of your stamp room! Was the drain pipe metal not plastic and if so is it sharp after cutting into pieces?

TFS, Vicki! I am always curious to see how others set up their craft rooms. It seems I always get inspiration from seeing what other people have set up. My inspiration from your craft room is the way you set up your GKD stamps. I love the idea that you have the identification cards hanging outside the drawer. I'll be busy organizing my GKD stamp sets the rest of the day. Enjoy CHA!

Enjoyed touring your stamping space! I'm always envious of those who have so much room compared to my tiny corner of a room!

I am so envious of people who have craft rooms. I have a small corner of a guest room, which is kinda OK but means when we have guests everything has to be stored away in a spare wardrobe! Have spent a while browsing your blog, you have some fabulous cards there. Hope you don't mind if I 'tweek' a couple. I love your recent black, brown and ivory card with the red flowers, its absolutely stunning. I have boxes of cards too but have just sorted some out to give to a local hospice charity shop. Love Sheila in Cyprus x
