OK I FINALLY can show y'all my stamp studio. I had to re-take the video's I don't know how many times - I kept getting interrupted by the girls, or it was way too shaky (I just use my digi camera to take videos - and it's hard to keep it still and walk and talk at the same time LOL!), or my camera batteries would die in the middle......
Anywho tho I got them done and got all three (yes THREE) videos uploaded and ready to go so here they are:
My desk and the three mini stackable units came from Best Craft Organizer.
My Photo Tent came from here: OBN Photography Equipment
Here are links to some of the things I got at IKEA (the jars I use for my Primas and the $5 wood shelves aren't on the site - that I know of anyway! I couldn't find them):
METALL DUTT Picture Holders (put on walls to display cards)
BYGEL Rails (used to store punches)
OK I took some pictures this morning and thought I'd add them here as well - the studio is still all nice and clean. I had to clean it for the videaos - but most of the time it's just a mess LOL - although now that I'm in a smaller room it's been much easier to clean up and keep on top of things. The other room I had all my stamp stuff in when we moved here was pretty much a mess 24/7!
ALSO - I did a little draft of how the room is set up - just playing around with Photoshop:
(sorry this one isn't very clear - I've been having issues lately with uploading my better pics and have to keep switching them all to JPEG format which is driving me nuts!)
And here are all the rest of the pictures - you can click on them to get a new window with a larger image:
And lastly I just wanted to mention that the only NEW things I bought for this space when I re-did it was the roman blind for the window, those two wire picture thingies and the white wall rack for the ribbon. I made do with what I already had or what we had in the garage (which was a lot. I've been stamping for several years now and I know my collection is huge! Y'all should see the boxes of stuff that I'm selling at the garage sale this summer).
I'm a sucker for storage stuff (my bff has said she could just get me cheapo plastic baskets for me as gifts and I'd be happy - and it's TRUE - especially if they're pink!) - so when I find things on sale or find something cool I get it. When I no longer have a use for it or we move things around I rarely get rid of anything that can be used for storage. I'll store it away in the garage or elsewhere and 9 times out of 10 I end up needing it later on (like the EXPEDIT bookcase and the iris carts!!).
