My Scrap Studio: Think Pink!

Look quickly,
Alyssa cleaned her craft area!
MY DESK: This is where I have my Mac set up and where I store a lot of my supplies. In my desk I have all my adhesives, glitter, embossing powders, tags, pastels, watercolors, paper punches, beads, brads, eyelets, metal embellishments, fibers etc. On the top of the desk, I have all my ink as well as blank notes to write in. In the Iris cart I have envelopes, misc rubber stamps and card samples. In the cabinet I have all my paper, pens, stampin around wheels, tins and other packaging items for embellishing.
MY WORK STATION: Here is where I get most of my work done. This is an old drafting table from the design school days. I bought the bar stool when I had my studio set up in our garage before the move. Under the desk is extra storage.
MY SCRAPBOOK STORAGE: As you can see I not only store scrapbooks, but also idea books, magazines, ribbon, prima flowers, scissors and anything else that looks cute on the shelf. On the top in the pink drawers I've stored some of my photos on CD.
Here is a close up of my shelf. It makes me happy to see all my things on display. I got the ribbon holders at Target a couple years ago and then they stopped carrying them. I'm so glad I got 4, cause they are all filled up.
Did I mention that I am addicted to all those cute embellishments. Part of the fun of scrapbooking is getting all the cute stuff. Anyone else out there want to start a "12x12" step program with me (Hello, my name is Alyssa and I am addicted to embellishments!) I have a storage binder filled to the gills with these also, but these are ones I plan to use right away. This way they are out where I can gain inspiration from them. When the time is right I will know exactly were they are. (Unless Hayden gets to them. He likes to pull them all off.)
GOT STAMPS?: Being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for 8 years, I have acquired quite a nice collection of rubber stamps. I have lost track as to how many sets I have now, but there is always room for more, right?

What a great space Alyssa!
You have inspired me to finish mine. I started and then petered out on it. I love those ribbon holders!!! Too bad Target doesn't have them anymore. Hmm....
When did you find time to organize it all? I always have little "helpers" with me! :-) LOL
I wish I had your drive, focus, and eye for organizing. Maybe you should come over and give a gal some help? :-)

BTW, I have some of the same embellishments! :-)
My one friend who keeps her scrapbooking very minimal and simple always gives me a hard time about my embellishments but I'll get her to cross over to the dark side one of these days, Whaa-ha-ha-ha-ha!
She dropped one by for me today, we did fall things witht the kiddos, caramel apples, krispie treats with candy corn, leaves ya know. Anyway, she thought of me and gave me a Jolee's boutique fall one. It has corn stalks and Indian corn, etc. How fun, can't wait to use it.

I would love to help you organize your space. I have helpers too. And to make matters worse, the door doesn't close tight, so the littlest helper likes t come in and take all the Jolee's embelishments off the board and just drop them where ever. It's lots of fun. BTW from what I remember, you have a great space too.
