Storage .....and the truth as I see it!

OK so my truth is I am an "Artsy Fartsy Woman" as my son in law so loves to call me. Please understand he's the brains, and I know he loves me! I have a fair amount of storage items.....some I use daily all the time others not so much! So I've decided to take you on a truthful tour of my studio today and over the next week or so......can we all say "I'm feeling vulnerable!" I also feel that if I bring you the truth maybe it will encourage me to move on and do some cleaning, organizing, purging....um....yeah how long do you think that will last? The other thing that might happen is that I will make you all laugh and that is one of my major goals in life is to bring laughter to the world....ready??
I Share this space with my hubs....he gave me the side with the large closet....Thanks Honey! This is what you see when you step inside the door. It includes a tall desk that I got at a bargain price from Pier 1. It had a damaged corner and it was marked down several hundred dollars...I love to save money! That damage corner doesn't bother me at all. I have the desk top covered with a complete piece of glass it is so much easier to work on and it cleans up like a dream.Behind that tall desk is my computer desk.

This is the other side of the room! Those cubes by Jet Max are wonderful they hold a lot of product and I got them at Michael's only with 40 or 50% off coupons one at a time!

The truth I need to empty everyone out and re-organize them all and label the drawers. On the top of them you will see my Carl cutter which I love and my Scor-It love that too

Humm maybe this will go in a direction that I will clean a section at a time and let you see it again when it is done. In case your wondering I do know where most everything is unless of course I have help and someone has moved something! LOL

Here is the top of my desk more Jet Max products for organization yes all three of them rotate so it is easy to access all items. Love them

This is the easily accessible end of my desk it stores my Cuttlebug, embossing folders, nestabilites in the books that I made for them. Extra plates for my Cuttlebug and idea books on the bottom two shelves.

This is a box that I purchased after Halloween for some ridiculous amount of money....maybe $0.33 from Christmas Tree Shop, I then altered it and use them to store my 6x6 papers and my spray and stamp cleaner.

See how wonderfully those Memory Box 6x6 papers fit in that box!

This little set up I use every day that I create. My wonderful hubs screwed different size PVC pipe fittings onto my desk to hold my heat tool, Scotch ATG 714 tape gun and my flour sack towels and Method cleaner to clean my desk. those items are always within reach and probably will be there for as long as I create. Well that is it for today enjoy! Until next time when I share more of my stuff!

It's nice to know that my room is not the only one that needs a little organization. My intention is there, but I just don't know where to start.

I think your room is just fine. If it was too clean and perfect, you wouldnt want to mess it up by working in there.

If it is warmer than -9 below zero with the wind chill factor I'll be right over! LOL

Wonderful crafting room! Wish mine was so well organized. :O)

Thanks for commenting on my Blue Christmas sour cream and salt card.
I am sure you could punch a hole and make an ornament or tag out of the copper piece. No problem-o!

Thanks Again for your sweet comment.

I've been wanting one of those utensil carousels--looks like you make good use of them.
