Spring Cleaning--in January

I get his nesting feeling in January and I like to clean out stuff and reorganize. Sometimes, I act on that feeling and sometimes I postpone it. Sunday, one little change resulted in whole new world in my Shawano Stamp room. I don't have before pics as it was an embarrassment.

Here is what started it all.

Bubba was getting rid of these drawers from IKEA and I discoverd this:

8 of the old style punches fit into one drawer! I just used my silver sharpie to add a label. Punch storage has been a nemesis of mine and I finally found a solution I can live with!

Now, the whole room:

Well, one corner. It's a basement that I share with Bubba (when he is here),

My paper storage:

I have two colors per slot and went through it all to make it neat and tidy. I added scraps to clam shells that a friend had given me. (thanks, gloria).

My card- ready- to- make- station:

My work area:

My desk area:

I am now organized and I formally vow to try to keep it looking this good. (yeah right!)

Happy Stamping!



  1. I am JEALOUS! It looks wonderful, creative and easy to keep organized! WOW! Will you come and do my craft room?

  2. Sure, Melissa. We just have to go to IKEA first.

  3. Ooooo! So pretty! Can I come stamp?
    Any gravity issues in your My card- ready- to- make- station? (sideway picture! lol) Good luck at keeping it tidy. I thought a place to put everything would make the difference, as I go to tidy up AGAIN! snort


  4. Great space! Love your paper holder and the wall above your desk!

  5. Love your organization! Good luck keeping it tidy! I know that I have tried many times and it just doesn't seem to work!

  6. Wow! Looks like a lot of work, but a job well done. Now if only some of your industriousness would rub off on me....

  7. Love all your drawers and glass jars. Fabulous stamping space!!

  8. Love how organized this is! Isn't it wonderful to have a place for everything and everything in its place? The creative mojo just seems to flow better when there isn't clutter (at least it does for me, anyway)!

  9. Oh...I dream about having space like this. Yea for you getting it all organized!

  10. Congrats on the clean up! Always makes you feel good doesn't it??

  11. Congrats on the working with the cleaning mojo! I'm hoping that someday I'll have the courage to stop ignoring it when it calls. Great stamping space!
