Since Christmas I’ve done some rearranging on my desk. My desk used to be solely for scrapbooking. But after deciding that I wanted to downsize scrapbooking and put creative juices into other things as well AND getting a new sewing machine, my desk needed an overhaul. (this is going to be a long post)
Here’s the only before pic I could find. This was taken before Christmas and I had cleaned off David’s night stand full of books. There are Christmas presents in there too.
I store my memorabilia box, paints, jewelry box, knitting bag and old photos in the bottom and I have 2 boxes with camera stuff and a box with cards in the cubby. Right now the drawers hold scrapbooking supplies.
Right now I keep all my thread in a little plastic box with cubbies and most used tools in a pencil holder. Everything else like misc sewing tools or sewing machine extras, needles and fabric paint are in their own box. This will probably change soon but this works for now. My fabric is stored in a big tub under my desk. I also have started a notebook for sewing ideas, knitting ideas and anything else. It sits in this area.
I store inks, colored pencils, chalks, pens, markers, glitter, adhesives and then chap stick, Kleenex, hand lotion and a nail file in this thing.
Next to that is my work space on the bottom with my cutting mat and my light, Epic 6 and Circuit on top. Under my desk is a 4 drawer rolling unit (this desk doesn’t have storage). It houses my embellishments, stamps & supplies, lettering (chipboard, etc) and tools on bottom.
It holds 10 glass jars from HL, which holds ribbon. I love the rainbow color! And I also have an antique camera and an “M”.
I think that about covers it! Sorry this was so long, I wanted to cover everything and I know that I really like seeing other people’s creative spaces.
I’d love to hear about your spaces. If you can share pics or just tell me about what works for you.
