MySpace (My SCRAP Space...)

Thought I'd take a few minutes to share my "new" scrap room and how I've organized all my goodies. There are still more things I'd like to do (like hang a rod to display pages, etc.) but this is what I've got so far...
It's a small, narrow room...but it's all mine! You'll see my workspace up against the left wall (I got a scrap table for Christmas). I have purple baskets with all of my most frequently used tools, adhesives, current pictures that I'm working with, some current magazines, and embellishments all around my workspace on the table. At the far end of the room is a stack of Iris bins that I can pull out as drawers, a cabinet hiding less frequent used items, and a small shelf displaying more embellishments.

You'll see on my scrap table I like to have easy access to all of my Basic Grey embellishments.
On top of the cabinet I have three bins where I can stand up most of my Thickers and alpha stickers. This is great when I want to peruse through and find the perfect color and font for a layout.

On top of the small shelf I have various containers with embellishments inside (these two hold thread for stitching, Dew Drops, and flowers).

Under the shelf I have my travel rolling cart where I keep all of my monthly kits in the bags. I also have plastic file folders that are sorted by manufacturer (you'll see my folders for October Afternoon, My Mind's Eye, and Pink Paislee).
Under my table, I have finished projects sorted into bins labelled with the names of the albums they will go into (Right now I am working on albums for my nephews Aiden and Evan, and my niece Addy).
The Iris drawers are next to my scrap table. Each drawer holds a different type of embellishment...
3-Dimensional stickers...
and chipboard. (Those are just a few)
Above the Iris containers is another plastic bin with three drawers where I keep all of my punches (which are mostly border punches)...
And on top of all of those drawers is a desk organizer that holds all of myStickles and mists. I like this because I can easily see all of my colors and grab what I need easily!

Inside the cabinet, I keep items that are used less Slice, a container filled with stamping items, Close to My Heart organizers that hold all of my brads and eyelets, etc.

Hope you enjoyed checking out my space...I'd love to hear about your organizing techniques! Leave a comment and give me some tips!
