Still Organizing My Space

I'm always interested in other people's crafting spaces, so the other day when I saw a blog hop for craft spaces over at Crafty Spaces Blog Hop I thought why not check it out.  Wow there were some awesome craft rooms and ideas.  I even decided to link one of my earlier posts about Reorganizing My Space.  

My room is still a work in progress and I've made a few more changes that really help me out. One of the biggest changes I made was getting a cabinet for my stamp pads.  Check out this great buy I got at the last Clipper Street garage sale.  It made my day!  And, it changed my craft space.  

I spied this great cabinet at the last Clipper Street garage sale, and even though I was determined not to buy anything (I'm supposed to be getting rid of things remember), I couldn't resist.  And, am I glad I bought it!  What a difference it makes to my work space.   

This cabinet is the perfect size and holds all my current ink pads including In Colours for 2013-2015, Versa Mark and Staz On pads, and there are a couple of additional spots for when I get my new Encore Inks.  I'm not fussy about the colour of the cabinet so sometime in the near future I plan on spray painting it white to go with the rest of my storage cabinets.
The best part is that the cabinet fits right on top of the hutch my sweet BIL built for me last year.  Now I can just reach up and grab the ink pad of my choice and voila, creating time is at hand.  All my markers, sponge daubers  and clear block mounts are on the shelf below the pads.  Perfect. 

And, because I relocated all my current ink pads I was able to store my retired ink pads (that I haven't been able to part with yet......... notice I said yet) and re-inkers in my revolving ink pad holder.  This gave me back practically a whole shelf.  So, this addition to my craft space has been a win-win, that has more than paid for itself.  Oh, did I mention I bought the cabinet for $40.00.  

Thanks for dropping by today and Happy Stamping.

Looks lovely and tidy, not like my mess. I could do with that type of storage.
