I was sharing on my Facebook page last week the utter scariness of my craft room after I decided that I needed to rearrange my furniture…again… and get a new bookcase to hold my stamps. I did not expect this project to take over my craft room floor so completely! Yikes!
See, it all started when I was putting away my new stamps and supplies from convention this year and I started getting frustrated with my stamp storage. I had been using a bookcase to hold my stamps and trying to put all my clear mount stamps on a shelf that was at eye-level when I was sitting at my desk. That way, when I turned around, I could easily see what I had. But I had too many stamps for one shelf (more like 3+) and so for the rest of my stamps, they were pushed to the back of the shelf which meant they were really hard to see a lot of time time.
So, I decided I wanted a bookcase that was less deep, and I remembered my good friend, Ikea, had just what I needed. And so off to shop I went. A week later, I finally had everything back sorted and put together and am really happy with how it turned out!
Take a Tour of my Crafting Space!
I often get asked how I store my different crafting supplies, so I thought I would give you a little tour of what my craft room is like today. If you have any questions, just let me know! I will say my craft room is almost entirely made up of storage solutions from either Ikea or Stampin’ Up! and I am really happy with how it is working for me!

So the most important thing for me, as I’ve been constantly tweaking my crafting space layout, is to have my most important/most used items very close at hand. So most things are out on a shelf and within reach while sitting or something I can see clearly when I’m sitting down and then I just have to take a step to grab what I want.
