Oh...my...isn't this a boring desk? Actually I cleaned it off so I could get serious about finishing all the taxes I have to finish...easier to think when there are not piles everywhere! I am making slow progress! I am sure you will see more creative desks than mine this week at Julia's What's On You Workdesk? Wednesday. I must tell you that I probably won't have much time for visiting desks this week, so don't feel bad if you don't leave a msg-totally understood!
So, since I have no craftiness to show you...I thought I would show you what is directly behind me if I turn my chair around---another IKEA storage unit(with drawers). I love the drawers as I store all my SU! 8.5 x 11 cardstock in there and do not have to worry about it fading in the sunlight. I sure wish they would adjust some of their other units to fit 12x12 papers!
It is a little bit of a tight squeeze, so I am careful how I put the paper in and take it out-but I do love it! In the cubby above the paper you can see how I store my unmounted stamps. On the left are my Art Impression stamps and my Inspiration Emporium stamps and dies. They are held in a clear refrigerator drawer I bought at the local grocery store. My stamps are all put in clear Avery Elle envelopes with some white paper inside for stability and uniformity. I have lots of new stamps waiting to be organized and filed! In the right drawer are House Mouse, Simon Says, Inky Antics, Lily of the Valley, some unmounted SU! sets and some misc stamps. I was surprised how fast I can fill these drawers up! Each drawer can easily store about 200ish sets I think...I am sure I will find out someday! I love that I can just pull out a drawer and take it to my desk to flip through! I think I will make some tabs to divide the brands--someday...You can watch Jennifer McGuire's video on setting up this system. It really is a great storage solution!
Well off to bed! Thanks for stopping by today and will see you soon. Next week is Bunco night, so I am not sure if I will get to join in, but I will try! See you later!
