This is what it looked like when it was first finished: click here
However, since that was 2008 and I've accumulated more crap over the last 3 years, it started to look like a bomb went off. Not only is this my "office", it doubles as our catch all room. Since my craft table is too tall for little hands, I tend to use this as a dumping ground for all things I want LEFT ALONE. Then I have no room to work, and I never go in there (except to dump more crap). Vicious cycle.
Anyway, I digress...
I recently bought a new computer and wanted to set up a "work station". ( I have some big news coming about this very soon...Eek!)
In addition to the new laptop, I also invested in a pretty nifty wireless keyboard, mouse, and monitor that syncs up when the laptop is within 70cm of the monitor. (isn't technology amazing???)
I took some time to purge, organize, then re-organize my scrapbook supplies until I found a system that would work a little better. Here's what I came up with:
All of my inks, embossing supplies, and such were well within reach of little hands. These went up to a much higher shelf.
Tried to gather the majority of my project life supplies into one tote so I can just grab it from a shelf when I am working on my layout for the week.
Finally, a little caddy to keep my most used tools, journaling pen, sharpies, adhesive, stapler, ruler, bone folder, paper trimmer, scissors, etc.
It feels great when I finally have my desk cleaned off and it's usable again. aaaaaaahhhhhhhh!
