Family Time Friday

Happy Friday!

As I sit and think about what has been going on here in the Merritt household, I'm thinking...a whole lot of nothing! With the weather here we've been pretty much home bound!! As I've described this week throughout my blog posts, the kids only went to school 1 day this week!!

I don't think I've ever shared with you my stamping space and since it got a bit of a makeover this week, this is the perfect time to share it.
This here is my work space, as if you are in the middle of the room and looking at my desk. I am trying to get the supplies I use most often at my fingertips...less up and down, more productive work time.

To the left, you will see my scissors and punches (old style), this is actually meant for file folders, but works perfectly for punches. It also has a drawer on the bottom where I keep my markers, blender pens, aquapainter, bone folder, etc!!!

My desk has a large pull out drawer (meant for your computer keyboard) however, I use it to store my grid paper, paper cutter and stampin' scrub!! Everything must have a place to go away, I don't like to leave everything out. My stamp room is attached to my bedroom so I do try to always keep it neat and tidy! There are also two side drawers that hold my pearls, rhinestones, rub-on, adhesive, dimensional, etc.

The corner white shelf used to be in the basement holding the boys toys, but it now holds my stamps, some ribbon, more punches, cardstock & dsp. This was key in my reorganization!!! I really wanted my stamps & paper out of the closet...I want to be able to SEE what I have.

Behind me is that FAB wall unit!!! I holds ALL of my ink, more ribbon, embossing powers, reinkers, clear blocks, buttons....It is my favorite thing in the room, it saves space by being on the wall and it keeps everything ORGANIZED!!! I love it. I'm sad to say, the company I bought it from is no longer in business, I'm sure you can find something similar out there on the web :)

I hope you enjoyed a little peek into my stamping room! Maybe I'll get some more pics when it's all finished.

Do you have any fabulous storage ideas? I'd love if you shared them with me :)
