Updated craft room organization...

I spent far more time cleaning my studio than I expected to spend but I'm really pleased with the result.  In fact, I'm so pleased I haven't been able to convince myself to make anything for fear of messing it up.  Let me show you what I mean.  With pictures from my last post, this is what I started with:

Does this look cluttered or what?  We invested in four waist high bookshelves and five cases of Michael's photo boxes and started organizing.  This is what it looks like today and keep in mind I still have some warts I'm working on.
These boxes contain stamps by brands and by category.  I keep the brands I use the most all together.  I have a box for stamps about food and clothing, a box for baby cards, a box for transportation (cars, trucks, motorcycles), a box for scenery, etc.  This does take up some of our hallway walking space but I'm usually the only one in this area. 

At least I can now see everything I have.  It's out in the open and easy to grab.  I will be sorting out supplies for donating, perhaps taking a shelf or two a week.  My husband now has room to walk in my room without knocking something over, much to his relief.  So, I'm off to start Sunday dinner.  Hope the cool weather has found you and the sun is shining wherever you are.


  1. WOW...what a super craft room. You really did work hard to reorganize. Can I come over and craft with you. I too have things that I can't quite put my fingers on....maybe soon?

  2. Your craft room (and hallway) is awesome. By going through and organizing all your stuff, I'll bet you got reacquainted with all of it and discovered some surprises and a few somethings for the trash???. That's what happens to me and I probably have a tenth of what you have in supplies. good job

  3. My heavens, but you DO have a collection/hoard/stash!!! I have cleaned out all my paper crafting & am moving on to beading. I don't have the talent or color matching skills for cards. Takes way too long for me to design on my own.

    Beading seem to be more instant gratification for me.

    Good work & good luck in completing!
