Room Makeover

I want to thank you all so much for your very kind words on yesterday's blog post. I know leaving her to do it on her own was best. She is my only baby and sometimes it is hard to let go.

Today, I wanted to share the re-do of my room. I finished it this past weekend so here is a (very) quick tour of each space and what I use it for.

First up is yellow desk, at 4 ft. long, which I love. I do most of my scrapping and card making on this desk. The long drawer up front holds all of my hand tools, glues, and pens. It also houses my twine and washi tape collections. Next to it is my best craft organizer. It holds all of my cardstock, embellishments, and such. On top, is my ink pad holder and my pattern paper kits and collections.


This next corner is where I do all of my computer work, photo editing,printing, and cutting, and where I keep my Silhouette ready for use. I just need to get in the habit of using it more than I do. Behind the trimmer, I have two desk organizers filled with blank cards and their matching envelopes ready to go. When I run low, I sit and cut a batch in different sizes. This assures that I always have the right size envelope for the card I have made. Too many times I have finished a card only to realize that I do not have the correct size envelope to mail it. This eliminates that problem.


On the far left, is my tiny die cut and embossing center. It also holds some fabric for my sewing. In the center is my sewing closet. My dh removed the doors and installed a table height shelf for my machine. I also store punches and other mixed media things in this closet. I have two three drawer bins under the table for storing things such as extra adhesives, packing supplies, and items meant for altering. Stella, my dress form, holds my sewing scissors, tape measure, and a few other odds and ends on her. She is named after my great-grandmother who was the most creative person I knew.


To the far right, is my cubby stand. Actually, it is two stacked together. The bins hold things such as containers, tins, yarn, jars, and such. The boxes keep my inks, stamp making supplies, brayers, etc. out of sight, but because everything is labeled I can find what I need with just a quick glance.

Well, there you have it. Any questions, feel free to ask.

Thanks for visiting!

I love it! It is so nice and fresh looking-well organized and label-a place for everything and everything in its place. I really was impressed with your cubbies with the black bins on it. One because they were all labeled (MUST have labels or I'm lost) and that they were all black so that helped them to look more organized and together. Since I scrap in my living room my goal is to make things look less cluttered and that would be one way to achieve that. Right now I have such a mismosh of things.... but I do love my things. Anyway, thank you for sharing!
