"I'm sorry that you still aren't right - that's not fair after so long, huh! Cor, roll on real warm dry weather for everyone. Everyone will tell you how neat and tidy you are...I'm going one step further. I have one set of small shelves that are a very dark brown melamine. I use them almost daily, but I don't show close ups on WOYWW. Because you could write your name in the dust! So I'm MEGA impressed by your housework as well as your neat!!"
As I have mentioned before, once my beautiful grand-daughter (I know, slightly biased) was born I had to give up my craft room as we only have a 3 bed house. There were no complaints about this at all as it is so worth it, but I then had to find a place for all my
Really, all that long drawn out explanation means is that if my desk is not tidy I find I can't relax in my bedroom. I have trained myself to clean up, or at least do a quick tidy, after each crafting session. As for the lack of dust on the shelves, I think it is because I'm always pulling things off and putting them back on. Believe me, I'm not one to dust very often!
The only drawback to this set up is that looking at all my stuff gives me ideas that I "need" to try right away, usually two minutes before I'm ready to crawl into bed for the night. I have partially solved this by keeping a notebook handy to scribble my thoughts down and then let it go for the night.
Here are a few pics of my current setup. And no, I will not show you my closet!!! LOL
|Starting just to the left of my desk is my ink caddy (the cube is actually on my dresser)|
|Between the desk and dresser are my wood mount stamps|
|The shelf on my work surface hold my clear mount stamps, punches, markers and my fantastic lights|
|The corner desk houses my ATG gun, clear blocks, tool caddy, laptop and printer|
|Under to corner desk are some of my 12 x 12 papers|
|Drawer cart holds extra adhesive and misc. stuff|
The shelf has boxes with bling, dies and embossing folders, my Big Shot, trimmers, scoring board and Paper Pumpkin goodies
|This big guy is on the opposite side of the room and holds all kinds of other goodies and my 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock|
The closet door is on the far right side of this wall
Thanks for stopping by.
