Spring Cleaning

It's been almost 1 Year since Shelli Gardner, ceo and co-founder of Stampin'up! & her daughter Sara came to my studio because I was one of the winners of a workshop of a lifetime.  More pics HERE.    Get to read how I won the challenge.  Although, I didn't make many changes in my studio then, I did tidy it up for two of the most wonderful ladies.  Well lately I have been slacking on the cleaning and creating a little too much.  So since I don't get to host with Shelli and Sara, I said to myself that I needed to tidy up again!  Even if they are not coming for a visit anytime soon:(

So in the next few days, weeks I promise to share pics of my studio and how I am organizing it to make it more functional for me and my clients.  And if I get really excited, I will even give you a tour via video!  So, are you excited & ready?  I will start with my first pics tomorrow or I could say today since it's 1am and I can't sleep!  After all, I do need to tidy for Melissa's workshop in the next few hours!  It reminds me, I have a few more dates left for a party with your friends, and there are only 30 days left before sale-a-bration ends. 

So book now and you and your customers could qualify for free products!

Ok it's now lunch time, I did manage to take a few pics.  Here is my coffee station.  Not for me, I don't drink coffee and never even tasted it.  It's the coffee and tea station for my class and workshop attendees!  They get to chose their favorite blend.  And below, in the baskets are all my punches.  Yes, I have to thank a dear demonstrator friend, Trina who suggested it.  The decor element above the piece of vintage furniture is called Très Chic, and comes in different sizes and colors.  You only get to see part of it in the picture.

My ribbon & button station.  I love how my furniture has frosty windows:)  So you don't get to see the mess inside!  And I love Stampin'up!  definitely decorative products.  The white daisies are called Upsy Daisies #117927.  Check it out on the right in my definitely decorative brochure.

And this piece of furniture is where I store my ink pads and wheels.  I hope you like my first mini tour in my studio.  If you haven't seen my kids stamp room click here.  Wait there is more, this is just a teaser,(wink)

Better yet, come to my next class to view the changes in person and bring a friend!

Please share a comment on how you get organized in your stamp space and I'll have a handmade blog candy for one of the post!

    I love your studio and how well everything blends together.  You have great storage ideas!.  I am in the midst of redoing mine.  I moved into our finished basement but have torn up the floor and am repainting, etc.  You have inspired me to keep going.  Thanks for sharing your space!

    Dee, my studio is in my basement, but with light colors it brights up the room and makes it like if I wasn't!  I hope you will keep on going and share your pictures when you are done

    Where oh where did you get that beautiful furniture?  Love, love, love, love, love, love it!!!!  By the way I, myself, am a coffee nut!  I really would like to do this to my basement, please help?

    Magnifique pièce, Kim! J'aime beaucoup le bleu des murs et les meubles blancs, c'est très élégant!

    Wow Kim, it doesn't look like you need to do any cleaning at all! Love your workspace! It is sooo lovely. Thanks for sharing. Now I am off to see your kids stamping area so I can get some ideas for mine!

    Hi Kim!  LOVE your space.  Love it.  I have the same shelf unit for my ribbon, etc.  How do you like the ribbons on the spools?  I really wanted my ribbon to be stored there, but it just wasn't working for me to have the spools on the rods, so here's what I did:  I took out those rods, and still store my ribbon in there just as if the rods were there.  I prevent them from rolling off by cutting a little piece off of the ribbon packaging, making a flat spot in the circular roll.  Does that make sense?  I love it.

    I am so happy that I posted Melanie, because you are the second person to make this suggestion and I am going to consider making some changes:)

    Love the room!  Love the colors and decorating.  I am drooling.

    I have to ask what color of blue is that. ? I love blue but not all shades work in rooms.

    It is the studio to have, you are so lucky Kim, and ladies it's a must to go to Kim's studio at least once…I've been there many times..and love it, very inviting and the view on the Outaouais river…breathtaking….and Kim even when the room is messy that's what crafting is all about…lol xxx
    P.s. want to know more about the ribbon thing…didn't quite understand…cause I made my own, although when I want a piece it sometimes keeps unrolling…lolll not good…

    I painted way back it was a color by Ralph Lauren which doesn’t exist anymore but I will look if we still have the old paint container with codes on it for details
