It's Studio Day!
The happy happy day when I get to share my new studio!
(This should be some sort of day-off-work holiday shouldn't it?)
I just want to preface this with the fact that my studio is totally set up & functional, but not yet decorated.
I'll post more photos when I get to that part.
For now, come on inside!
This is the view from the door.
I'd like to do something to jazz up the back of that shelf, but I'm not sure what to do with it yet.
The bottom shelf unit holds paper stacks & albums.
The top shelf unit holds mat stacks, foam stamps, SU stamps in boxes, a few large punches & some misc.
It's my least accessible unit, (being short stinks) so I put my less used items on it.
This is my work table.
I put a glass topper from an un-used coffee table on top & LOVE having the glass surface to work on.
So much easier to clean off.
That's my Cricut Table there on the right.
At some point, it will get a table cloth (to hide all the stuff under it) and the window will get a curtain.
This is the cubby & shelf unit behind my work table.
All Primas on the shelf unit, in rainbow order of course.
The cubby holds buttons in jars, brads & eyelets, 8x8 paper, & my quote binders.
This is the cubby to the right of my work table.
It holds my stamp binders & loose stamps in fabric bins.
I was able to sort all of my loose paper into home-made paper holders.
I love love love these.
I should have converted to vertical paper storage years ago.
I have 26 of them lined up on top of the cubbies in rainbow color order.
This is my Cricut table.
It holds my Cricuts & Jukeboxes (my Expression is not in the photo, but it lives here too), my large Tonic Trimmer, my Cuttlebug & folders and a 3 tiered basket that holds extra blades, Cricut Colors, my Gypsy & all the cords.
The 2 shelf units above the table hold Cricut cartridges.I have a bunch, but not enough to fill both shelf units, so I've got some misc. stuff hangin' out up there too.
This little shelf behind my work table holds my Sizzix & dies, as well as my sketch binders & the binders that I keep printed copies of my SVG files in.
This little shelf to the left of my work table holds movies, my adhesives, etc.
Both of these little shelves are just space fillers for now.
Eventually, I will get a computer desk to put here.
This is the built-in bookcase in my studio.
It's perfect for all of my scrapbook mags & idea books & a couple of decorative items.
I put a screw in coat holder on the inside of the closet door to hold my ribbon rings.
The closet had some built in shelves that I was able to use to hold my theme boxes.
Any misc. ribbons & fibers go in the dresser drawers.
The top is still my drop spot, but I'm hoping to remedy that soon.
On the right side of the closet, I pulled out a shelf & a hanging bar so that I could stack my Iris carts-filled with alphas & emblies.
I was able to fit 5 Iris carts & a small filing cabinet.
The filing cabinet holds 8.5x11 cardstock.
I've still got a little bit of work to do on it, but mostly I'm really really happy with it.
My favorite thing is that I can sit at my work table & see almost everything I have, making me sooo much more likely to use things.
I'll do another post in a few days with more info on how I organized things.
Thanks for looking & I'd love to hear what you think!
