My "Craft Room/ Workshop"

Here it is, try not to be Jealous.  Isn't it amazing what you can do with a CLOSET ???  I would love to have some of sort of wall system so that I can get all of that STUFF off of my table.   Sure wish we had an Ikea.  

There are a couple of things that I felt were quit clever. First, the shower curtain rod that is hanging across the door way. (Yes the doors have room to close completely).  Some of the items are hung on shower curtain hooks and some with "O" rings that open and close. Second, the shoe bag that is hanging on the door holds my large punches and Stampin Wheels.  Since the doors are 10 feet tall, I had to use like a million yards of ribbon to lower it down where I could actually reach it.  Third, the curtain rod that is holding ribbon.  The idea is good but I haven't perfected a way to mount it yet.

Probably can't see that there are 3 sets of rolling drawers tucked under the "L" shaped table.  They contain small punches, embellishments, scrap paper, chalks, paints, inks and more ribbon......  My heat gun hangs on the side of the table using it's little foot that is meant to keep it from touching the table when hot.  I just keep it plugged in to the extension cord that powers the clip on table light.

The closet contains all of my stamp sets. Top shelf - current sets. Second shelf -retired sets, some papers and demonstrator paperwork. Third shelf  - cards that I have made, Alphabet stamp sets, extra clothes pins and a basket of loose stamps. Bottom holds my cross stitch floss, containers of fibers, Cuttlebug and hostess incentive stamp sets.

You can probably tell what the shelves across from my "Craft Room" hold. (Papers, Cricut, idea books. What you can't see is a tall shelf that also contains idea books and the linen closet which houses my "Alterable Items"............. 

So there ya have it, A glimpse into my little world where I spend most of my time.  I have been a busy girl so I plan on posting again this afternoon. Be sure and check out the boxed set that I uploaded last night. It is below this post. Ciao Ciao
