Here is what I like to call my tower of power! LOL I started with a couple drawer sets a couple years ago and it has evolved to this! LMBO! I like to be able to find what I am looking for and the best way to achieve that is shallow drawers. That is why I love these! You can lay most of your things in these drawers in ONE layer and be able to open them and see exactly what you have in them. I love it. I like being able to see all my stamps at a glance. I recently broke up a LOT of my Stampin Up sets (the horror) and organized my stamps by occasion and type. I had gotten the point where I didn't even know which stamps I had and even knowing I had a stamp, didn't guarantee I could find it. LOL Now, I just have to go to the LABELED drawer and I can find it pretty quickly! In these drawers, I have embellishments, glitter, adhesives, stamps, paper and more! Note there are some EMPTY drawers. I made room to grow... LOL
Here is a peek inside my chocolate stamps drawer.

Here is a set of 2, 6 foot chrome shelves. I LOVE this storage. Previously, I used some cheap plastic shelves from Walmart. When we were moving, my hubby said I "had" to get better shelves to hold all my things. LOL I chose these because they are only $50 a piece and they hold lots of stuff!
I am mildly embarrassed about this picture. LOL This is some of my alterables. LOL EEEK! What in the world was I thinking?!?!?! In my last stamp room, most of this stuff was shoved in a closet. Now that I can see what I have, I plan to use them more. :) The little "tower" to left of the shelves contain my daughter's stamps and things. They have their own area, but I do let them use pretty much anything in my stamp room. Yes, even the ribbon. :)
Here is a view from the doorway. You can see some drawers that hold more alterables, child memories and ribbon. On top of the drawers, I have my CD player and gifts I have been sent by friends. The painting was given to me by my son last year. He painted it in art class.
2, 6-foot tables. The one closest in the picture is for my girls. That is their personal tool caddy and paper trimmer. :) My table is on the far side.
Alterables drawers, stereo, gifties :)
More alterables, ribbon and gifties. :)
My Cuttlebug area. I was adament that I have a space that is dedicated to this. Trying to clear an area to use my CB on was getting REALLY OLD! LOL Now I have my nesties, CB dies and CB ready for action!
This is how I store my card stock. This picture is bugging me. I think I need to use my label maker to print out the names and then stick in ON the color of CS it is labeling. Note to self: get on this ASAP!
This is how I store my scraps. I have one drawer for white/vanilla, black/grey and each color family. The tote on the top houses my "in color" scraps. I recently labeled them so my girls would be able to find scraps to match the inks they choose. I also labeled my color caddies so they would know what to look for. :)
If you've made it this far... thanks for reading. :) If you saw something you would like an explanation for, please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I would be happy to give you more details or take a close up shot. :)
I have stamped a little bit, so I should have some goodies to share soon! I am also working on the sticky sale and should be posting that this coming week. :)
Stay tuned! :)
