Here it is cleaned up a bit.
I have a few tips and tricks to share with you:
I use baby food containers to store my buttons and brads. They fit perfectly in a 12x12 Iris case.
In order to keep my daycare kids out of my supplies, I use two of these Iris towers to house supplies for: me, Tyler, Tanner, baseball, bowling, Halloween, Christmas, Vintage, Disney and card templates.
On top is my buttons/brads case and two purple cases that hold projects I am working on and projects I want to take with me to crops or classes.
Here are my Imagine and E2. On top of my Imagine are 2 Recollections cartridge keepers that I use for my Imagine carts.
My E2 is sitting on another Iris tower. These cases house: stamps, inks, bind-it-all supplies (including scrap papers cut for future note pads), vinyl, sketches and punches.
I sort my Imagine carts by image carts and paper pattern carts.
My Gypsy sits next to my E2 on a $3 plate easel. I use a binder clip to hold my cords up on the easel. This way they do not fall on the floor when I unplug them. I got this idea from Pinterest.
I hang my ribbons from big binder rings under a shelf. I got the idea and pattern for the ribbon holders HERE.
My desktop spinning organizer came from Michaels. I keep my tools in one slot, pens/pencils in another, and liquid adhesives in the third. I use paper cups inside the slots to hold my tools and pens together.
The divided slots hold my crop-a-dile, rulers, tiny hole punch (for brads) and my tweezer and flower petal stylus kit.
I keep my ATG gun and label maker in the center.
The drawers hold my cricut refill blades, scraper and other blade refills.
I also keep my wire cutters handy for my Bind-it-All.
This holds a lot of frequently used tools and I use it a lot!
I made my own "Clip It" from a wine bottle and lamp shade frame. See how I made it HERE.
I bought this 3 tier wire tray from Wal-Mart in the bath accessories. On the bottom tier I put my tape runners and pop dots. The middle tier houses my double sided tape, glue dots and masking tape. The top tier holds my Tiny Attacher (stapler), staples and tissue tape.
This expanding file folder was purchased at Wal-Mart and I use it to house my scraps.
Each color has 2 sections, one for solids and one for patterns.
I bought this itso cube from Target and store my 12x12 colored cardstock inside. I use a "shelf" as my lid (dust cover). The plastic containers inside came from Hobby Lobby and my stash.
I keep it on the floor so I can look down and select the perfect shade of green!! My SIL gave me this idea. She put the casters on the bottom so she could roll her crate out from under her table. I have carpet so no casters for me!!
I got this Stickles storage idea from Pinterest. I bought an 8x10 acrylic frame from Michaels and put three rows of stick on velcro on. I put velcro on the bottles and stuck them on upside down.
I put a piece of cardstock in the frame.
Behind my table, I use my window ledge and buckets to store: gems, new punches, stickles overstock, twine, glitter, mists and tiny beads.
If I keep supplies where I can see them, I remember to use them!
Under my table is my cricut carts (in the black and white bags) my old Expression and the white polka dot bag holds my Smash supplies. My MS Scoreboard is tucked between the Iris tower and table legs.
My room rarely looks this clean because I can not work if it is too sterile :)
Every time I am forced to clean, I find things I no longer need. I am giving away my extras as blog candy today.
