FALL GOC WEEK 2: Paper

paper letterboard

I thought I would just share photos of my paper storage.  Below is my newly arranged paper storage.  I have been through the challenge several times.  I use each challenge as a chance to tidy, review, purge.  I am hoping to get my father-in-law to make me 2 or 3 more wooden inserts and get some more Paper Handlers from Totally-Tiffany to finally finish off my paper storage and get rid of the rest of that droop you see below.

The picture below is my A2 (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) card bases and mat storage.  I am hoping to replace this with a 4 drawer cube and make this unit storage for my Xyron refills.card storage 2

 

The picture below shows my 5×7 card base and mat storage.  My complete cards are also filed here my theme.  I use the shelves above the drawer for organization storage:card storage 1

 

Currently my vinyl is stored in this Sterlite container sorted by type (removable, permanent, HTV)  Someday I would like to replace this with an IKEA Alex unit on wheels.  I like that I can slide this under my desk when not needed.  I do roll it out and set my cutting machine on top when I am using it.vinyl storage

I recently rearranged my room.  Photos are below: 101_0564

The above picture is a view from the door to my craft studio.  I try to call it a studio.  It makes me feel better about spending so much time there.  The IKEA Kallax (2×4) on casters holds my paper inside the cubes and my scraprack on top.  It is covered with a wall tapestry that I liked the colors in so decided to use it as a cover to protect the pages opened from direct sunlight.  I currently have file crates holding my stamps and my catalog.  I want to get another Kallax (2×2) to put these in.  It also has my catalog inside which I am hoping to redo since I have changed my storage and am planning to change more of it.

Above is my cutting area and where I use my laptop in my room.  There are 2 L shaped stations in the room.  This is one of them.  The rolling cart under neath this desk area contains all my vinyl supplies and I can roll it out and place the cutting machine I am currently using on top of it.  The grey draws are IKEA Alex drawers and this one contains all my office type supplies.101_0566

A view of the other side of the L where I keep my laptop.  This L is made of 2 Ikea Kallax (2×4) units, a 39″ Linnmon Tabletop and a 49″ Linnmon Table Top and a 5 drawer Alex unit.  I have slatwall hung above each table.

This is the area behind my scraprack.  It has a printer stand with printer on top and supplies under neath.  Another 39″ Linnmon table top and a 2 drawer file cabinet.  There is a TV on top (which I am debating whether to keep as I don’t use it much.

This is the 2nd L shape which has 1 Kallax (2×4) 2 Alex (5 drawer units) and 2 – 49″ Linnmon Table tops.  The white cart is a Totally-Tiffany Companion cart and holds all my different adhesives.  This is where I do my scrapbooking/cardmaking/wreath making, etc.

This is the backside of the Kallax unit in my main workstation.

This is my storage closet where I keep my backstock and some other supplies.  I have 3 carts in here 2 are IKEA Raskog carts and the other one is a Recollections Lexington Cart that I purchased at Michaels.  The Aqua cart is my planner cart I can wheel this into hubby’s mancave where we watch TV and I can work on my planner in there.  The Rose Gold one is my bill paying/mailing cart that I can wheel out when I need it and the black one is currently loaded with wedding scrapbook supplies as my son got married in June.

This is a view of the closet without the carts.  These 3 units came from Michaels.  I have my Rainbow backstock here.  Currently my punches are stored in these as well.  Hoping to see if my father in law will make me punch storage that can fit behind my paper in my Kallax unit.

The lower part of the closet on the far left side.  Sewing supplies and Tshirts to personalize, etc.

 

There are a few piles on the desk that need to be taken care of and some current projects sitting around.  Remember I have been the challenge multiple times so my room is in pretty good shape.  I participate each time to watch for opportunities to purge.  I also learn something new each time and enjoy the fellowship of the other participants.  I think Organization is something that needs to change over time as well because our needs change over time so our space needs to reflect that.  I love my space and credit Totally-Tiffany’s 4 section system with the difference.
