Marvels of technology!!

You know we've come a long way with technology when I can be lounging on the couch at my parents house five hours from my own home and still be posting on my blog!

I guess I've been an over-achiever this week. Not only do I have two cards to show, but I also cleaned up my craft room and took some pictures. :-) I love looking at the gallery on Splitcoaststampers of all the pictures of how people have their craft rooms set up. I know mine isn't my "dream" room - because I also share the space with a lot of my daycare storage - but it's getting darn close.

So the first picture is of my stamp storage. I have tubs where I store all my Stampin' Up! stamps. I label the outside of the box so I can glance at them and find the set I want. On the bottom shelf next to the stamps is one of my paper organizers. This one is big enough to hold all of the Bold Brights and Soft Subtles papers. Underneath the bottom shelf on the floor are two of the Iris brand carts where I have all my single stamps and stuff that I alter - baby food containers, tins, etc.

The second picture is of a spice rack that I cleaned out (okay, my DH cleaned it all up for me!!) and re-purposed. Don't you just LOVE finding things that you have in the house that you can turn into something for your crafting purposes??? In this handy little rack, I have buttons and brads. (I have all my eyelets in a different area - which I will have to show a different time because I don't pictures of them.) I love this spice rack because you can just spin it around until you see what you are looking for.

The next picture is just of the carts where I have assorted craft items stored. My SU! markers are in one drawer, other brand markers and pens in another, adhesives in one drawer, you get the idea.... One thing I would like to get out of the bigger drawers on the right hand side are all my SU! punches. I'd sure like to find a better way to store them where I can see what I have a little bit better. I'd love using the idea of a curtain rod to store them on mounted to the wall, but I have very little wall space and most of it is painted cinder block in this room.

The fourth picture is the side that has the rest of my SU! papers and all the rest of my designer papers. It's not the best picture, but it's a pretty good wide shot of that side of my craft room. I have most of them in Cropper Hopper paper storage systems, which I seem to like just fine. The paper sorters on this side came from Sam's Club and hold 12 colors each, which was perfect for the SU! color families. :-)

My favorite picture from my craft room is this final one - I love these cute little white flower pots that I found at Wal-Mart. I am now using them to store my Copic Markers, Prismacolor Markers and Colored Pencils in. I also have one for my scissors and I bought two spare pots just in case I need them in the future. (I would have taken a picture of my craft table - but it's a mess right now!!) You can see the edge of my Ott-Lite in the picture. I got this for Christmas this last year from my DH and kids - and I love love love it!! So that's a quick peek at what my craft room looks like. I have t.v. in the craft room, so I can sit in there and keep caught up on the day - or in the case of this year, keep an eye on the nasty weather we've been having in the Omaha area this summer!!

Okay - on to the cards!!!! They are quick and easy - just the way I like them. :-) Sorry that I don't have time to go into details about them - but I can hear my DD waking up from her nap. Have a great week and I will see you back here next weekend!!

Hey! I like the first flower card. I just signed-up for a garden card swap at SCS...maybe I'll use that card as an inspiration :)
