Time to revive this long-neglected blog with an organization post! I thought I would start by talking about my craft desk, which is my favorite spot in the house to spend time. I keep a lot of my supplies on the top of the desk because I'm very much a person of out of sight, out of mind. Of course, you can't put everything out, but scrapbooking items and tools that get used frequently are kept nearby. I mostly do Project Life with the occasional scrapbook layout or mini album, so my supplies are catered towards Project Life.
I took a video of the desktop if you want to see it in more detail and here me stutter on about it. Apparently I'm a Valley girl because I threw in a lot of like's and you know's in there. Oh well, I didn't think it turned out too bad for a first time. I might try to do some more videos because I love looking at other people's scrap spaces online.
Here's some photos for those that don't want to watch a 4 minute video about my desk.
As you can see, I tried to go vertical with as much storage as I could. My husband made the pegboard for me, which is actually a folding pegboard screen that can be moved around as needed. He also made me a room divider the same way with chalkboard, pegboard, and magnetic sides, but I had to pack it up due to space issues. (I'll post instructions at the bottom of the post.) The pegboard holds a lot of non-scrapbooking tools and a vintage wooden letter sorter that holds a lot of my Project Life supplies.
The desk is framed on both sides by bookshelves, so I use washi tape to put up cute printables. I also have the pegboard as an inspiration board.
The white cups and shelves are actually a plant stand, but they work great for my tools. I store all sorts of brushes, pens, scissors, stamps, and scrapbooking tools inside.
The metal bins are vintage loaf tins. The small ones hold small die cuts and labels that I like to have easy access to and the large ones hold a hodgepodge of photos, cards, mini kits, and other supplies.
I'm going to show the wooden letter sorter in a little more detail to show just how much it holds. This small piece holds a large majority of my Project Life supplies and it's within hand's reach when I'm scrapping.
Enamel dots and shapes
This is my edited down stash since I sold a bunch a while back on a Facebook group where members can sell scrapbooking supplies. Puffy stickers always fetch a premium for some reason and I think there were some stamps I wanted at the time.
Other stickers like stars, hearts, images, etc.
Miscellaneous (rub-ons, brads, etc.)
Labels on sheets. Loose ones are kept in one of the small bread tins.
That letter sorter holds a ton. I need to work more on using up my stash though because it isn't easy to flip through. I usually just pull out the whole stack I need and sort through it that way.
Let me know if you have any questions or would like to know where I found something.
