Slowly, ever so slowly, with small bits of time here and there, I am purging and organizing my craft space. At this rate it should all be accomplished by the time the boys go to high school! At least I have a goal, right? ;)
I have a ridiculous amount of scrapping stuff to sell. The more I scrap and craft the more I know my style--what I will use, what I have TIME to use!, so the rest has to go. I plan to sell it this spring at a scrap/antique sale if you are in the area.
Anyway, I do have one little shelf organized to show for it all! Here is a little shelf that I picked up for $4 at a local thrift place. It holds my stamps and ZING collection...gotta bust that stuff out more often!
Below it is an old, as in square nail old, bucket bench. I like having vintage/antique furniture in my scrap space. Serves a purpose and looks interesting.
The space on the bottom holds a fabric bin from Target with all my Thickers and other alphas. Beside it is Studio Calico kits.
The second shelf might be my favorite. It holds embellishments, which are like sprinkles on a cupcake to me :)
This is the Sassafras box. I don't organize everything by manufacturer, but if I have enough of somethings it helps me to keep it all grouped together. A keep a small bowl inside it for any loose brads or stickers.
Beside it is a bling/sparkle button box.
The top shelf has two more bins where I keep most of my punches.
I tend to use things more when I see them so having them ready to just grab works for me. They may not necessarily be organized in the box, but they are contained ;) The rest of the punches are in an over the door shoe organizer.
I had just a few inches of space beside the punch boxes and didn't want to waste it so I used 3 cropper hopper organizers: one for printed pics ready to scrap, one for sticker alphas and one for 12x12 sticker sheets.
I have a few pics of the desk where I scrap, think old ;) , that I will try and show later this week. I really do love having a more organized area, even if it does look disastrous after I am done playing with paper and even if it will take me a lot longer to get it all organized! Still makes me happy :) Something else that makes me happy---
Last week over on the May Arts blog we had a blog swap week with Graphic 45. I created a little inspiration jar--
