My Studio

So here is a look at my craft space! I am very lucky to have my own room, 
outfitted exactly like I want it. I ripped all the flooring out and I have bare cement floors. 
I didn't want to worry about what I might get on it. And let me tell you, I 
have dumped some things on it! 
And let me say thank you so much, to my wonderful hubby, who lets me buy and do
whatever I want. Love you honey!

When you walk in the door this is what you see...

,,,,,my work table, it is an antique trestle table I bought for next to nothing a few years ago. 
I have my little rolly cart with all my most used tools on/in it. The rods across the windows are Ikea curtain rods and S-hooks. I keep all the embellies that I reach for the most on those. My sewing machine is to the left on an Ikea drawer unit.

Next up is my Ribbon Ring - this was the best organizational tool I ever bought. 
It was worth every cent and then some. I love it. 

My desk has my laptop, printer, photo printer, album in progress and a few misc things.

Yes. I did paint all the walls, back when this was DD2's bedroom when we first moved
in the house. There are murals all the way around the room.

Here I have stacked my Iris carts next to some cubicle shelving I have. In the Iris drawers, I
 sort things I am collecting for future projects. One drawer is all Texas stuff, one drawer is 
all my DD's High School stuff, one is all the cards my DH has ever given me, etc. 

Above the closet is my collection of House Mouse stamps. I don't actually
stamp with my House Mouse stamps, I just collect them. Aren't they toooo cute????
Shelves from Ikea (I am telling you - Ikea is the Mother Ship)

This is my wall of shelves. I keep all my lesser used supplies here. These were stamp shelves in a retail store in their previous life. When the company decided to get rid of them, they came home with me. They are so happy here in their retirement years. No obnoxious children hanging or climbing on them!

This is the newest addition to the room - I wanted something to keep my Cinch 
out on - I use it all the time. So off to Ikea I went. This little thing was so cheap.
And very sturdy. Right now it has some things I got at convention on it, but it will
have some baskets on the shelves to hold my Cinch supplies very soon.

So this is my happy place - my PRIMA BREEDING PROGRAM. Someday, the world 
might run out of Prima flowers. If that ever happens, I plan on having enough of them
in captivity to start breeding my own.
I get LOTS of questions about these tilt out storage bins - they are available from
Deflecto Craft Solutions and you can see them here.
 They are the Craft Tilt Bins and I have the 5 Bin and 6 Bin.  They also come in smaller 
bin sizes with up to nine cute little mini bins in each unit!!

Here is my paper storage, another shelf just like the ones in the closet. It had a former
life in a retail store as well. It is perfect for storing my paper in! 

I love, love, love my Alex drawer units from IKEA.
There are three of them here, sittingso happily side by side. They come with casters, but I wanted a little more height for mine, so I put cinder blocks under them instead. They are the perfect height now, I just turn my chair around and there they are! 
I get a ton of questions on these drawers - the IKEA item number is 401.962.41 and you can find them HERE 

I keep tons of things in the drawers, my most used stamps, my inks, die cutting supplies, embellishments,button jars, all my paints and sprays, my punches,,, so many things. 

Last, but not least, is by brad storage. I have issues with brads and buttons. I love this little cube,
I bought it from Best Scrapbook Shelf, and it is wonderful to store my brads in. It holds
HUNDREDS of different little containers of brads.

So that is it! My scrappy space. 
I hope you have enjoyed a look around my studio.
