I moved to a cottage in Coarsegold in July and figured I'd had enough weight lifting looking through boxes and bins for craft stuff. I was making cards on the small living room table and it was driving me crazy. Here is a before picture of how my craft area looked...
Today I'm starting to look through my 4 boxes of craft stuff, sorting it and deciding how I want to store it in this space. To get extra storage space, I stacked two wine boxes horizontally I got from Mel. I put them on an end table which also has a shelf on the bottom for me to use. The smaller wine box on the left hand side of the craft table has small shelves to put "things" on, small containers of buttons, brads, etc. which will be easy to reach.
I am a visual person so the more I can see the more ideas I get and my creative juices start flowing.
Below the picture is a blue bin on wheels which has some of the first stamps I bought when I started making cards. I'm going to look through these stamps to see which ones I haven't used and will give them away to my crafting girlfriends. The 3 drawer wicker chest is great for storage of my craft stuff and printer paper and inks.
This final picture shows the desk where I sit at my computer. It's right below a window that looks out to the countryside. If the window is open I can hear various birds and critters in the trees and bushes scurrying about. Nice sounds of the country.
