Hello and Happy Wednesday - The plan for today's Me and My Space post was to show you how I store my Spellbinders and other metal dies. But you see I have just been one crazy crafter - with a lot of other normal household stress going on this past week. Craft wise I am just working up a storm projects for CHA - business wise and pretty new images wise.
You need Proof - well here goes the false image that I am all organized and clean in my craft room...
Yes this is my desk right now... oops should have hid that Hershey's chocolate bar huh? You can see I also craft with the remote and the phone right there with me too... LOL OH my how embarrassing ... HA!
So since I can't lay out my Metal Dies storage for you.. I'll show you a cleaner area of my craft room today and show the Metal Dies later- and how is that for a teaser for a future Wednesday post?
Today I will start to show you one of my Drawer Cabinets.. I have two of these. Hubby bought them for me when I moved into my craft room, we found them at a local store called El Paso Imports... I love that store! Most of the furniture in my house is from them :0) This cabinet sits next to my wall of stamps I have shown before. And please excuse the puppy pen.. still one puppy left in the house - we are getting really attached to Miss Chica now!
Love all these drawers!!!!
Now sitting on top of it is my Big Shot Pro - I drove myself crazy deciding whether or not to purchase this or a regular Big Shot when my Cuttlebug gave it up and went to crafting heaven. I as SO GLAD I saved for a couple of more months and went for the BIG PRO! One it is blue and white and matches my room.. but two - I can use it for anything! Any die - Any brand! And this thing is sturdy! Love it!
Now to the drawers - -
The top drawer is my less used inks. The bottles to the left, those were a weak moment at a scrapbook convention a couple of years ago. Oh they are wonderful - and I have used them. They are a dye ink with sponge tops. But I don't use them enough to justify the cost of them really. Then you see my little bottles of crackle paint. I have had these forever since the moment they came on the market.. I had to own them, I taught a few classes with them, and have used them a ton... but when I went to pull one out last week and use.. they are drying up!!!! OH I nearly cried! Then you see my other inks.. Stays Ons - Brilliance - a few Stampin up - Versifine - Palettes? (didn't like these after I got them, many are still sealed... shame) and then my make up sponges. I love using these for lots of inky projects.
Second drawer please...
This drawer has my smaller Sizzix Dies in it. Good thing I don't buy many of these any more. I have had these forever, and do still use them from time to time. Love some of the fonts of the letters. But the drawer is full so I guess that stops me from getting more right? Hubby will say yes here.... LOL
But the shelf on the other side of the stamp wall.. and next to my ribbon storage.. well that is where I store the larger dies... you know those really cool dies that my PRO can handle...
I can't add to this collection now... but I am sure in time I will have to dedicate an entire shelf to these babies! They are just too fun! I have some of all the sizes here.. regular, Bigz, and Pro's...
So there are two of the six drawers in my first cabinet - too be continued for the other 4 here and the other 6 in the second cabinet :0)
Now how about a winner for that bakers twine I offered up last week???
True Random Generator - Result - 23!
The winner is....
This solution sure looks cool, and is just what I need too. I´ve been using a big basket for all my scraps, but it´s almost impossible to find what I´m looking for, when I need it, so I often end up with just grabbing a new sheet then instead of using a scrappiece, as it takes too long to find, so this seems like an awesome idea. Thanks soo much for sharing all these great tips with us, and thanks for the chance to win this. I never saw this before, so I don´t know it, but it loooks pretty cool, I must say.
Thanks Maryann!! If you can please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I will get your twine out to you ASAP!
This was fun to do a little mini candy for a shorter time. I do believe I will be popping in more of these on a regular basis :0)
Well.. better go and check on Hubby - he is re-doing my kitchen... much needed! And I can't wait for the end result! A kitchen as nice and cute as my craft room! Thanks so much for visiting me - your visit really makes me happy!
