Spring cleaning continues…

By saying I will post, you are really pushing me to clean up my studio.  Thank you for all the compliments, and suggestions.  I have already changed a few things.  There was also so many questions, ranging from paint color, where I got my pieces of furniture, to where I got my vintage coffee cups…  You have to take in considerations that I have been a demonstrator x 4 1/2 years and a stamper since Stampin'up! has started in Canada.  Some of the pieces I bought on my own, some are in storage for a dear friend and the rest of them, my husband bought for me on different occasions like Christmas and my birthday etc.  He owns a construction business in Toronto, well actually Mississauga, Ontario and when December comes, I go with him to the big city for his staff's Christmas party and one of my first stop is Pottery Barn:)

This is my favorite Stamping spot!  It gets crazy messy.  Actually, I haven't seen it look like this in a long time!  In the summer I get the Ottawa river view!  Right now, it's a view of ridiculously huge snow banks:(  Anyway, it's the perfect spot to create!  In my baskets, I store all my products.

On the opposite side is where I store all my big shot dies, I love that stampin up has added these box for die storage.  They come in 3 different sizes:  Small die box #122219, Medium die box #122220 and Large die box #122221

I found this vintage piece of furniture and it's one of my favorites in my studio.  Right now it stores my clear stamp sets but my goal is to display my 3D creations.

I hope you are enjoying part two, of my stamping space. You can view part one here.  I still have 2 more spots to share, one is where my guests and downline stamp and the other is my office.  My office is the worst place.  I am so not good with paperwork. Maybe you should give me a few suggestions on how to get organized there, Pretty please…

My friend Veronique came to stamp with me this afternoon.  We came up with a beautiful gift for a dear friend of hers with a matching card.  I can't wait to share with you tomorrow.

If you would like to stamp with me, book a party with your friends or check out my class schedule,  or join my team and you can attend my classes and monthly meetings, I would love to stamp with you!

    Your studio is lovely!  You must have a walkout basement.  I'm envious of all that natural light and in the summer the view must be awesome.  Thanks so much for sharing. I can't give you any suggestions on paperwork.  As I sit at my desk I have three piles of papers and an overflowing file tray plus assorted stamping supplies and a Wii controller so I'm not any help but I'll be looking at the tips people send you..

    Beautiful. Reminds me of our house on the lake with being able to see the water out of most of the windows. Gotta love it.

    When I had an office, I had an in and out basket and if they were full there was a problem. Everything was entered and filed at least weekly, and nothing on the desk except the phone, baskets, small electric calculator, and my planner. Worked great. If time allowed, it would be done more than once a week just to get it out of sight. Since the filing cabinet was beside the desk, just pulled the drawer out and put the stuff in immediately after entering, and it was done. Hated filing, so just got it done.

    Hope this helps you a bit

    for my workspace:
    The only way I can do it is to put everything back when that project is done. Now, I have no choice because my workroom is the end of the table, and two cabinets and a paper unit along the wall beside it, file cabinet with the printer and calculator on it in the corner, but have to move things to get into it. thankfully don’t have much filing now.

    Made 2 shelf units into one tall one by stacking them, and adding shelves to hold about 60 paper colours plus a stand up area for the 12 x 12 sheets, and can just reach for them, so they go right back as well.

    Even with a larger room like in the house, things would still be put away because a cluttered area drives me nuts. Always made sure I had a “home” for everything.

    KIm,
    I just love your new piece, it already looks so organized, haha. I know what you mean about the office, but they way I do it is as soon as I am finished with one thing I have to put it away, otherwise it just drives me crazy. I can only dream of having the beautiful space that you have. I wish you lived closer to Jo and I and we could get together more often. Love looking at your posts.
