WOYWW #122 - You Rock!

I'm use apologizing because it's sure to happen often now that the remodel has begun.  I do have a card for you and a peek at my new IKEA pieces...I love my studio stays clean, I can work somewhat neatly and I can put everything away when I'm finished...YAHOO!

First up is a card for the son of our youngest son's girlfriend....say that 3X real fast!  He just made all A's and B's on his report card for the first time.

 His school colors are gold, black and white.  The "you Rock" sentiment is embossed in black ep and popped up on the card.  Anyone know how to get those eyelet brads on without indenting them in the middle?  I mangled the first set with the Crop-a-dile and then decided to hammer these in with somewhat the same result but less mashing.

Paper- Neenah, SU gold, black
Stamps - Fiskars Thanks Much
Ink - Versamark
Other - black EP, brads, SB star dies

Now for a peek inside my studio.  I have only two useable walls as one wall is sliding glass doors (for which I'm grateful but they do limit workable space) and the other wall is closet (a walk in for which I'm also thankful) and the room door.  The third wall has another door on it to the attached bath but I still have have about 80 inches of space.

I LOVE this wall unit.  Everything organized and easy to find! 

This sweet kitchen unit is only 42 long, and is in the center of the room.  I am in heaven.  Guess what I store in there?

3 big drawers full of ribbon...easy to find, easy to cut, and sorted by color....

This unit used to be where the shelves are.  It's the cutting, embossing station.

I love my room now!  Much less clutter means the brain works so much better...well, that point may be up for debate but that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I took this before it was light.  You may notice that I moved the plastics units around.  This configuration is much more efficient.

I'm off to paint an old wooden file cabinet that holds my SU papers...Happy What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday!  Be sure to head over to Julia's to see the workdesks of lots of crafty ladies around the world.
Pin It!
