Here is an overall picture of my TINY studio area.
As you can see, there is just enough room for me in the room. It is a bit decieving though. At the end of my table, there is about 2 feet of space in front of the cabinet. It doesn't go right up to the cabinets. And across from my table, there is a paper storage unit and there is about 1.5 feet in front of that cabinet. So, the floor space is shaped like a "T". Hard to see in this picture, but the shelves that dh put in are filled to the ceiling at the far end with magazines, books, Xyron, etc. You can see that easier in the next two pictures. The right cabinet is ribbon, glitters, beads, embellishments, etc. Above is my decorative scissors in a utensil spinny thingie and more paint, floor wax, kosher salt, spackle and other random stuff for various techniques.
Above is a picture of the small entertainment center I bought for my die cutting station. These are intended to be stacked on top of each other for stereo equipment, etc. But, I just bought one and it works perfectly for my die cutting needs. The baskets on top hold my small embossing folders and my rhinestones and pearls are in the other. Next shelf down: left side is my A2 embossing folders and behind it is all of my plates, cutting mats, shims, embossing mats, etc. Middle shelf is a crate that holds all of my Spellbinders dies in cd cases and my original Sizzix dies. Standing up beside the crate are all of my texture plates and my Nesties that are too long for cd cases. Right shelf is my Wizard. I don't use it as often as my CB, so I keep it in the box.
Bottom is a box of ribbons I recently won for blog candy. The center cubby is Shelby's card making supplies and then to the right is my CB storage folder that holds all of my CB dies, Sizzlets, QK and Bosskut dies.
Above my workspace: the long shelf is 95% inkpads. The two green drawer units are inkpads and random junk (lol). The silver center one holds all of my chipboard alphas by letter.
To the left of my table are a couple of shelves that dh built that hold reinkers, paints, glazes, sprays, Colorwashes, alcohol inks, etc.
Above is another new addition to my room. The cd rack on the wall used to sit on the floor, but dh cut it down a bit and hung it above the new, larger cd cabinet. The top one holds all of my JustRite Stampers stuff. The one on the floor is all unmounted stamps. The bottom baskets hold SU! sets on the left and the right basket holds all of my clear stamps still in their original packages. The iris carts behind that shelf are all mounted stamps (3 deep-I need to purge!). And on the far wall, the right drawer unit is all stamps. The left one contains punches, ephemera, fibers, Twinks/Pearl Ex/Perfect Pearls. The left wood cabinet is my paint and traditional crafting supplies (clay, fabric, etc). Above this cabinet, the drawers hold my embossing powders, watercolors, chalks, etc. To the right of the window, dh put in a shelf up high that holds various spray inks, fixatives, sealers, spray adhesives, spray webbing and Distress Crackle paints. Below that are 6 paper organizers stacked together. They are for offices...slots to hold paper. I got them at Sam's. In front of that on the floor is a bin that I keep all my WWP cardstock in.
As you can see, I have used every inch of space in this room for storage and it still is out of control!! I hope to someday have a much bigger space that I can make all cute and tidy. Right now, I have chosen function over cuteness. I did ask dh if I could put a big shelf unit in front of the window and he wouldn't let me. lol It isn't much, but it keeps me creative. Someday, I will go through and really do a clean out and sell alot of what I have to make more room!
Thanks for stopping by and have a creatively wonderful evening!
