My Stamping Room - Done!

OK. Here are pictures of my stamping room. Whew! I'm so tired of looking at pictures of it to share - I just want to be in there! :) Sorry if there are too many. I did delete several more.

Above is the view from outside the door looking in. (I will put the descriptions of the pictures below the pictures.)

This is outside looking in - in the other direction.

Starting to the left behind my table and going around the room. Just after we bought our house (before we even knew if we were going to get it) someone had these two teak shelves for give away at the end of their driveway. We gladly picked them up! My stamping table and hutch are teak, so that was perfect! (The table and hutch bottom were our old dining room furniture. We gave the hutch top away years ago.) On this shelf are flowers and buttons, tablets of patterned paper, miscellaneous older markers, some eyelets, ink pads, tape runner, binders with my stamps, binders with colored cardstock. The six-drawer unit has more misc stuff and some punches.

My table. On the left is a nine-drawer container for my copics and other markers, my foam squares, etc., gems and pearls. On top of that is an Ott light - that's where I take pictures of my cards. My acrylic blocks and small stamp sets are in the wood trays, along with my blank and finished calendar pages, Stickles and Liquid Pearls. My "lazy susan" storage holds scissors, glues, stamp-a-ma-jig, brayer, paint brushes, blending tools, etc. Also, my PTI stamps are in CD cases in a revolving CD holder. Also in CD cases in that same holder are my first Nestabilities - the "plain" shapes with scallops.
My wood-mounted stamps. These are all Stampin' Up! The closed doors hide more wood-mounted stamps - non-SU! The SU! stamps are arranged by size and then alphabetically. I have the last two stacks on the second to the bottom shelf and the bottom shelf left to use.

The view from my table. In the left corner is a storage cube and my Cameo Silhouette. Then my desk. This was about the first thing that my mom bought after starting work. The TV came from Jim's mom's place and the computer was my dad's. The next unit holds my punches. It also came from my dad's place - it's for VHS tapes:) The doors open out. The black storage shelf holds our photo albums and the remains of my former crafts. The painting on the printer was done by our daughter in tenth grade. It was hanging up but fell down a while ago. Jim will try to figure out a better way to hang it!
I don't have a window in my room, but if I keep the door open, I can see outside through the family room.

With the doors closed, this is the view. The Starry Night painting was done by me at a "Paint Pub." The scenery picture is a crewel stitchery done by me many years ago.
My bulletin board with some cards I have received. It hasn't been updated for quite a while. :( In the colored drawers are my embossing powders, eyelets and snaps, stickers, extra supplies and miscellaneous items. Also there sits my Grand Calibur, which I rarely use.
Last picture - behind my table. We got the upper cupboards free through FreeCycle. I think they match quite well! They hold finished cards, ribbons, white and off-white cardstock and much more. The hutch holds envelopes, several boxes of cards I've received over the last many years, my ScorPal, some punches and a few other things. The six-drawer unit on the left is FILLED with 12 x 12 paper - which I very rarely use. The three-drawer unit hold alphabet stamps. Next comes more paper. Then my BIGkick, MISTI, dies, Washi tape, and card parts. The binders on the right hold my embossing folders and Cuttlebug dies. 

I think that's about it! Please ask if you have any questions.

And I even have the family room back:) And it amazingly only took about two and a half days.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

What an awesome room! I am impressed with how organized you are. I redid my room last winter but still have tons of things to go through. I have more paper than I will ever use plus unused stamps, etc. One drawer at a time, I guess! Thanks for sharing.

Oh, how lovely and neat and organized!! And, oh how it makes me wish I had a room just for stamping where I could go and close the door on the world. You are a lucky ducky!! :)

You guys rock at starting a project and finishing it pronto, Lynette! Everything looks great, so well organized! I thought I had a lot of wooden stamps (before I purged them), but you have a TON of them!! Thank you for taking the time to take photos and share with us! We all love seeing other people's craft space ~ your's is fantastic!! Hugs, Darnell

Never too many photos! It was awesome to see this. So cozy and beautiful and so much space! You have big pieces (computer, printer, TV, etc) that I could never fit into my room. You've seen mine, so you know why I had to pare it down. The painting by your daughter is pretty amazing. And your crewel and Paint Pub picture... you're both artists! What a happy place where I know you love to spend time. I can just imagine you moving around in there. My own room is much smaller, but the happiest and most beautiful room in the house to me. Thanks so much for sharing your space with the rest of us!
