I had a good friend over one day and she suggested moving my main desk so that I was looking out into the play area, rather than with my back to it. Can you say duh? Why didn't I think of that - thank goodness I have brilliant friends! I also added another table (a Coleman camping table - hee hee!) just for more surface area and storage.
See the space heater on the floor in the lower right hand quadrant? My hubby brought that home for me one day - without me asking - what a sweetie!
I made this ink pad holder the other day out of 2 sheets of foam core board. Cost me all of $3 plus hot glue that I already had. It was pretty easy and it's pretty sturdy. The original design called for 5 equal columns, but since I don't own that many SU ink pads, I decided to modify it for my own needs. I got the pattern off of this blog. I plan to make another for my ribbon spools, just like this one - maybe today even!
Lastly, I made these two little baskets. I have been wanting something to put my cards in out in my front entrance - I often have friends who want to "shop" for cards while they're here and I didn't have anything pretty to put them in. I got this pattern off of Sharon Johnson's blog and modified it so it would be a little bigger for my landscape cards as well. I ended up making two boxes out of this gorgeous Amy Butler paper and they were super easy!Anyway, sorry for the really long winded post. Hope that maybe something is helpful to you!
Oh Kerry, I hope your son feels better soon. And croup, my son was 12 when he got it. Scared the devil out of me, that awful gasping. You poor, poor mama.
Love your basket. I need to find some time to work with paper.
I'm sorry to hear about the croup, that can't be much fun!
Thanks for sharing your space--call me nosey, but I love to look at others' spaces!
wow, that is so funny about moving the table, I wouldn't have thought of that either - duh! LOL Your stuff is adorable, and as a fellow cold-basement stamper, I'm impressed at the joy you can create in the hole you stamp in! Great job!!
Kerry I hope your little guy is on the mend soon.
Love the basement fix up. Hey, looks like there is space for two to stamp *wink*.
wow Kerry - your room looks great! I love what you've done with your room - great idea to use the camping table!! Also love the baskets!! What a great idea - I need to do that with all my extra cards!!
Great work on your organizing. I am working on getting my place more functional. :0)
Kerry-I sure hope that your lil guy is better soon. Your pix of your cleaned up stampy space are inspiring me(I am actaully taking a coffee break from cleaning my stamp cave right now!)
I've been so busy that I am WAY behind on reading my favorite blogs! So I'm trying to do a little catching up tonight!
I LOVE your baskets, and your stamp pad holder is pure genius!
Like so many others, I enjoy looking at others stamping space for ideas. Thanks so much for sharing yours!
Hope your little boy is feeling better soon.
FAH-ba-lous job on the inkpad holder! It looks great! It IS pure genius if I do say so myself! *wink*
Thanks for the link!
