Good Monday morning!  I hope you had a great weekend.  Since I was traveling the last two times Mallory was home, she decided to drive in for the weekend!  It was so much fun to spend time with both my girls.  We went shopping on Saturday and then lunch.  Saturday night we hung out here at the house and watched a movie together.  I don’t remember the last time we were all here and watched a movie together.  Such a great day — good times!

I’ve had a number of emails and comments, asking me to post pictures of my studio after I mentioned I was reorganizing.  Now trust me, it’s nothing fancy but it works for me.  Where I’m going to put my stamp club, I don’t know — I’ll figure that out in a few days.    That table was removed from the room, folded up and put away.

Anyhoo, here’s my new workspace.

Studio work space

The table was moved away from the back wall and the new cube shelving was put where the table was.  I now face toward the front of the room with everything I use on a regular basis within handy reach behind me.  Things I don’t use much were put in the fabric cubes.   The pine shelf on the right wall (which needs to be painted black), was a recent find at a consignment shop.  It’s perfect for holding my Ranger distress and pigment pad.   I placed a small tie hook bar just on the left-hand side of the rack to hang my heat tool and extra rags on.  Those binders on the upper left cabinet hold my single unmounted rubber stamps.

This next photo is what I face when I’m sitting at my table.  This is also were my stamp club table was.

The Hoosier was moved to the other wall.  It holds miscellaneous wood-mounted stamps, extra miscellaneous tools, my Wizard, Bind-it-All, etc.  When I need to work at the Hoosier, I can pull the top out farther and have plenty of room.  With the smaller folding table put in this area, I can leave my light tent up all the time and it fits perfectly on this table.  Before there was about an 8″ give that made it had to keep the tent from sliding from front to back.   You can also see my television on left-hand side.  Yes, I face my television now!

I know there have been many discussions about storing unmounted stamps.  Well, here’s what I do for most of them.

Studio unmounted set storage

All my unmounted sets are clipped to closet shelving.  Right now I have odd things setting on the shelves.  The fabric cubes used to sit on the shelves.  They’ve been moved now.  I’ll need to find a way to dress this area up a bit.  I also need to pull out the holiday sets and organize them a bit better than they are now.  Maybe a binder!  My punches were hanging on the back of the studio door, and it was a pain in the butt to get up and hunt for a punch.  Now they hang where my desk used to be.  My Spellbinders and CB dies are stored in shelving under the table where the television sits.

That’s about it for the changes.  I’m sure there will be more, but right now it seems to be working.   By the way, it usually stays this neat — I can’t stand to have piles of stuff lying around.  I always have to clean up after every card and then start all over.  I hope y’all have a great day!

  1. ok, so when will you be here to organize my room????! Looks great! (Oh yeah, can I just say that you made “Erma Bombeck” here, ill to her stomach when you said that your room stays that neat!!) LOL

    Question: What do you use in your binders to place your UM stamps on? I just bought a binder for my few UM’s and was planning on placing them on transparency sheets (didn’t know it that would work, but was willing to try!!)

  2. Oh sigh, look at all that space. I suppose once my children grow up and move out I’ll have plenty of space… but I don’t want to wish those years away. Everyone tells me that they go too face, and so far I’m inclined to agree! Thanks for sharing all the photos and ideas!

  3. Oh sigh, look at all that space. I suppose once my children grow up and move out I’ll have plenty of space… but I don’t want to wish those years away. Everyone tells me that they go too fast, and so far I’m inclined to agree! Thanks for sharing all the photos and ideas!

  4. It looks great, Sherry! You are right… room in there for that folding table you use for your class.

  5. Very nicely organized! I’m constantly re-organizing (with every new gadget! LOL!) and I love the clean look of a newly organized room though mine seldom stays that way- but of course I’m sure yours doesn’t stay this neat when you’re working either. Thanks for sharing the photos.

  6. WOOOOOWZER!!!!! This is one fabo room, Sherry!!! I love all the different areas and there is even room for the light tent…tooo AWESOME!!! OK, that does it….you have got to make a trip to Texas after Christmas to help me get organized!!!

  7. question regarding your light box set up. I recently got a cheap light box and am taking worse pictures than I was before with just a flash. It makes everything seem yellow. How does your set up work and are there any tricks you can share..I am so tired of glaring flashes, and bad pics but I am not a photographer adn am not sure how to do better! thanks for any info you can share! deidre

  8. Sherry,
    Thank you for sharing your studio! I love to see how crafters organize. I get good ideas! I can imagine you are really enjoy having your table face away from the wall. I’m thinking about doing that.

    Take care and STAY POSITIVE!

  9. Awesome job Sherry. Wanna come do my house now? 🙂 I see some cards on the wall and that gives me some ideas for my stuff. Thanks.

  10. How wonderful! I love every inch of your space. I wish I could come over and play. Thank you for sharing these great pictures!

  11. Wowwweeeeee!
    I do believe that I see where we could add another chair in the later even of visiting stampers in there!! Hot Dog!! I just knew you were the queen of organization!! Love it!

  12. I love seeing photos of other folks’ stamping spaces. Thanks for sharing these, Sherry. I can sure always use some more ideas. I like your unmounted storage.
