What's Within Reach?

Hello again!
I wanted to share with you some pictures of my craft space, but I don't like the videos crafters/bloggers post showing the inside of each drawer and every cupboard. I do not find those interesting or informative. They come across as bragging about their crafting supplies, and how much they have.

I tried to come up with a way to show the items I find helpful to have within reach of where I sit at my desk. Which tools and items to I go to the MOST! Those are the posts I think are interesting. I thought I would share my ideas.

Mind you, I am a very frugal crafter surviving on a teacher's budget. I buy ONLY what I need and I use everything, or I don't keep it around. I have been card making for 5 years, and I have been blogging on and off for only 3.

Several of these items I have created by hand, and I have posts on my blog showing you in detail how you can create one also. I will link to those if you are interested. Leave a comment, I would love to hear your thoughts! I believe you can click each picture to zoom in.

Ohh, yes, I do own stamps! you cannot see them in these images, they are to my left, and not in these photos. Here are the links to the hand made items I mention.

  3. I am inspired by others storage ideas. I am re-organizing currently- on-going..... Being a Technique Junkie, I have alot of different supplies- and try to use them, but need more time to create : ) I would have no clue HOW to label my pics like this- amazing!

  4. What a fun tour! Thanks!

  5. Such a great space! I really like the color charts on the wall!

  6. Thanks for the tour! I am due for a craft room re-organizing mission...and I am dreading it! LOL Maybe this summer, I'll show pictures too!

  7. I am definitely drooling! Loved the tour... great space and organization skills, too!

  8. I agree with you. I often fast forward because they bore me with all of their "bragging." Ok, off to go through all of this post slowly.

  9. So nice to have everything you need in arms reach. I know I myself get up and down alot to get what I need. Due to the room layout my desk cannot be up against the wall so I'm a bit limited as to arms reach. Love your layout.


Place comment here, I look forward to hearing from you!
