The Big Reveal

After several days of sorting, cleaning, organizing and dumping, I can finally reveal the new office studio! feels so much bigger in here! The armoire is now home to the papercrafting supplies.

I managed to fit quite a lot in here. The drawers and cubbies hold supplies and embellishments. The shelves hold papers. Nice and neat!

And inside the armoire there's a nice area to do the actual stamping and card making. The best part? If I make a mess, I can close the doors and it disappears! Now you may be wondering...where are the stamps? Well, I put the two shelving units in storage, and I'm storing quite a few sets there. In my nearby closet, I have a much smaller shelving unit where I'm going to keep my "go to" stamps and the seasonal sets. I can rotate the stamp sets every few weeks, or just walk down to storage and grab a set that I'm looking for.

My desk area is now an actual working desk! I can type and print and talk on the telephone, and best of all, I have a great view of the rest of the house and the window to the front yard.

I was so inspired by my cleanliness that I made a clean card today!

This sketch was inspired by Mary Fish, SU demo and stamper extraordinaire. Mary has a really fresh approach to stamping. I love her clean and simple lines.

Did you catch the photo of my desk? Did you happen to notice my awesome new desktop wallpaper on the laptop? That's a free download from my favorite friends at Gooseberry Patch! You can download a fresh desktop for every month! This month's holiday wallpaper is available by visiting their blog (you can find the link on the right under Inspiration!)

I hope my craft room makeover has inspired you today! Thanks for visiting the cafe!


  1. The work spaces look GREAT! Veda

  2. I couldn't resist reading about your 'edited' crafting space...what a breath of fresh air! I repurposed my Art Studio this past spring. It was
    taking over our whole family room and I felt that was not fair to my DH and DS's.

    So I took our step down pantry which is double door width and floor to ceiling shelves for my 'studio'. I can close the doors when I need to not see the creative 'mess'.

    Have fun creating in your new space

  3. What a great stamping space! I love how you have put so much at your fingertips.
