This is my main work desk (above) - I just wanted this photo at the top of the page - after this we will begin the scraproom tour!
Above - This cute triple tray sits atop the desk - in the spot my new E2 will call home in the near future!!Below - A peek into my cartridge sorting method.
Right Turn - Once you reach the paper tower you must turn right and continue around the room. You will immediately encounter the wall of cubes! The bottom six cubes are more of my Store-In-Style cubes. As you can see they are larger than those by other manufacturers. To top four cubes on the left are from Target. The remaining smaller cube is made by Jettmax. I truly prefer my Store-In-Style cubes, but I will be the first to admit that they are more expensive, heavier, and larger.
There are a lot of products stored in these cubes:
Drawers - Gypsy drawer, knitting drawer, general craft item drawer, and "leftover" 12x12 printed paper/cardstock.
Bottom Middle Cubes - magazines and thin books, pages to be booked for my daughter and for the family books.
Bottom Right Cubes - Pages and paper for Carter and Gabi, Aaron and Crissie's pages to be booked and Ian's pages to be booked.
Upper Right Cubes - Imagine cutting mats and solid white smooth cardstock, Yudu Card Shop and Card Shop screens.
Upper Middle Cubes - Lots of card making supplies: cards, envelops, etc. Embossing tools - powders and embossing gun.
Upper Left Cubes - Cardstock stacks and all of my Cricut Cartridge overlays and books. The books and overlays are in large snapware and are sorted alphabetically. The cutting mats which are currently being used are sorted atop the snapware.
Top - On top of the cubes are three items - Caroline the dress form, who holds some of my embellies, a ribbon box with a ribbon sorter bag, and a spinning embellie holder.
Continuing to the Right - The first part of my L shaped main desk and the two hutch storage units. The butterfly bucket under the desk contains printed cartstock/paper sorted by brand/line. As you can see, this is where most of my flowers are stored, along with a few stamps and some of ribbon.
In the corner sits my TV and above that, a vinyl wall decor:
Right Turn - As you turn to the right you will see the other side of the L shaped desk, which is also my main work area. On top of the L shaped desk is the drawer desk top piece by The Original Scrapbox. I love this organizer! It is great for holder very commonly used items.
Copics and Ink pads are stored above the desk and are sorted by color. The desk is topped with Cricut Created works of art and Mr. Cricut!
More Cubes - Next to the main work area desk is a
cubes. I love these cubes. The cubs hold my most used cardstock/paper. The top to cubes are sorted by theme or brand. There are Valentine, Easter, Halloween, Fall, and two Birthday themed shelves. Others are sorted by brand. The bottom two cubes are all Christmas paper sorted by brand. I find this method works really well for me. tower of Kaiser Craft
Right Turn - Just before you exit back out the door you will encounter this tall thin shelf unit. It contains my Grand Caliber, Spellbinder dies, and Cuttlebug embossing folders. Above that is what I call "Stamp Land". I have my stamps sorted by brand and/or size.
Top - Atop the shelf unit is a snap together small cube set that hold all of my brad, eyelets, and buttons sorted by color. The little drawers were easy to label and are perfect for these little embellishments.
Inspiration - I hope my room might inspire you to better organize and sort your tools and supplies. I have found that I am back to my old habit of completely cleaning up after each project - the only way to keep my room super clean. Also, I find I am more creative in a clean room. Maybe it is just that I do not have the mess to distract me!!
Cardstock Anyone? One of the newest residents of my scraproom is this wonderful paper sorter. Towering to 54" tall, the rack holds all of my solid color cardstock, sorted by color.
