The Red Room--Lots of pictures

Got your attention, didn't I? When we bought our house, my hubby said he didn't think I would like that room because the walls were red. I took one look and said " I love it, it can be my studio". Not sure he liked hearing that one as the room is 400 square feet. There is a lot of light in the room, which I really like. I still need to work on the window treatments. I have valances (custom made by my AWESOME aunt) but I need shades of some sort. We compromised and I got half to turn into my craft room, stamp room, studio (whatever you want to call it) so I thought I would share some pics of my "space" with you. The first pic is of my desk that David made for me. I was standing in the doorway when I took the pic. The next was taken from the doorway also and is the space to the right of my desk. The table is my manicurist table that I am using for my Cuttlebug station. This corner is still a work in progress. The rattan units still have nail stuff in them. I hope to hang my french board on the wall above the table. The next picture is my 12 x 12 paper storage and my ink pad storage unit hanging on the wall. My most used punches are on top of the ink pad holder and the smaller punches are in the little basket on the floor. The white wire basket is where I keep my gallon baggies of scraps. I have them sorted by color families (kinda). This area is just to the left of my desk. The next pic is of the cabinets. They were already in the room when we looked at the house. Another bonus! There are three sections of cabinets but I only use two for stamping/crafting. I will show you the cabinets closed and then open. The first open pic is where I have my stamps, some punches, a box with re-inkers and extra ink pads. Lots of people are surprised to find out that after stamping for 14+ years, I don't have more stamps than I do. They are stacked 3 high in some of the boxes, but I tend to used them and then get rid of them. The only stamps I don't get rid of are sayings/phrases. The next pic is the bottom of the cabinet and it has two 6-drawer Iris carts in it. One has 8 1/2 x 11 paper and the other has embossing powders, embellishments, clear bags and who really knows what else! The top of the next cabinet is really scary. It has so much stuff in it. The two plastic containers on the top shelf have unmounted stamps in them. I rarely ever open those boxes. I know thats bad, bad, bad. The rest is alterable items, envelopes, card/envelope sets and "other craft supplies. The last cabinet is just under that messy one. It has reams of cardstock, and misc jargon (as my son, Jon would say) in it. The Iris cart has my polymer clay and supplies in the top two, okay maybe three drawers. I really can't tell you what is in the bottom drawers right now. The pink box is for my clear stamp sets. Usually they are piled on my desk though. I hope you have enjoyed your tour of my studio. I will have a couple of cards for you tomorrow. Just need to take some pictures of them. TTFN!
