....my Simple Stamping Space that is.
On the Paper Wings angel website we've been posting pictures of our craft spaces. This is a fun way to get organizing ideas and in a way, get to know people. I also saw a fellow SBS4 sister posted pictures of her craft space a few weeks ago so decided to let you into my world with photos in our rented space.

This first picture is a view as you enter the room. To the left in the photo, is my computer armoire. Next to that, beneath the window, are my craft cubes. I Love these and have gotten many friends addicted to them. They are stackable and hold anything! I have all of my stamps in them. (This picture coming later)Lastly, is my actual workspace to the right I did have my cricut on there but had to move it for more desk area. In front of my desk is another white cabinet with a TV and my husbands little corner. (No pictures of that) (Tip: you can cover your cricut with a kitchen Toaster Cover to keep the dust off it and look pretty)
This picture to the left shows some of my storage drawers open which hold All of my Rubber Stamps! My current count is over 250 CD's. Now, this is why I love unmounted they take up such little space and cost less. I think of it as "going green" and saving trees as well. (Yes, I purchased wood mounted but convert them)
This photo to the left shows my desktop storage and actual creation area. The revolving organizer holds all of my scissors, small punches and stuff I use often. The other holder to the left holds my acrylic blocks and various other items including my binder that I have my stamps inventoried in. I enjoy the Ott lite as well for a bright natural light.
These photos are taken to the left of the doorway as you enter. I have this white cabinet holding paper overflow, stamps for sale and various stuff in the white photo boxes. My binders for organizing ideas, newsletters and business items are labeled on top. I use this as my mailing center as well where I keep my postage, business cards, envelopes, etc. Also shown in these pictures are an open view of the cabinet and my magazine center. I love to browse through these for inspiration. The filing cabinet holds all my receipts and business items.
Moving along to the right side of the door which is the opposing wall to my cubes, is this area. Here is the mess amoungst the space. There is an actual working fireplace hidden behind this hodge podge of shelving. This area is hard to organize with the fireplace. On the wooden with wicker basket stand,is my die cut center. The baskets hold most of my dies, cuttlebug folders, etc. This area also holds samples of projects, started projects and extra paper packs. I also have baskets wtih my "freebies" and binders full of sample cards. Next to the fireplace center, is a picture of my storage closet opened. This holds all my items to sell, to alter and everything else that doesn't have a home.
I don't like how this looks all messy but it's better than no space at all.
I hope you've enjoyed peeking into my space. As renters right now I am limited but I hope one day to have a super studio! (As always, typos and grammatical errors left for your enjoyment)
