WOYWW70 - Not for the feint of heart

If there isn't a card or two accompanying this post, come back later. I will be adding some. On to the "feint of heart" comment.

I decided to show you, not just what's on my workspace, but also "what's around my workspace," so you'll know why I am close to breaking a leg every day. I figure that if I ever decide I'm not inspired enough to make something, I'll have time to organize it. Lol.

The desk, and yes, to the person that asked, it does have little recesses in it to hold various sized objects. It's called Scrap-N-Stor, I think, because if someone wants to save a FLAT project in process, it folds up and wheels away. I haven't done that since the day I promised dh that I'd put it away every night if I could just use this room for crafting!

To the left of where I sit is a coffee table that has the supplies for the baby books I'm supposed to be working on, ephemera that I think is going on vacation scrapbook pages (haven't scrapbooked in a while...), stamp sets, journals, magazines, etc. I just noticed that I have two tupperware containers on the table. I only need one to catch the bees that are coming in through my overhead lights (don't worry, the exterminator is coming tomorrow to find their little nest outside...Lol). Oh and the pink notebook is where I keep copies of insert that comes with my Unity stamp sets. I can leaf through the book quickly when I'm searching for images that will go together. Yes, that's Pikachu. Leftover from my ds' childhood. I squeeze his little paw and he keeps me company by saying "Pikachu" every minute or so for about 15 minutes. Lol.

Behind my desk, the chair I usually sit on (I have to stand on a step stool to take these pics), the SU 12x12 album that holds pages of scrap patterned paper from recent projects, the glossy photo paper I use to transfer my Unity stamps to for storage, all my Unity sets getting ready to be put in those magazine files chronologically.

The closet to the right of my desk. Holds more than can be listed. Patterned paper, Project Life album, inks, punches, books, rub-ons, ribbon, bling storage and so much more.

This is what I call my satellite studio because the mother lode of stuff is in the basement room that was supposed to be for the kids... but they got over it.

Have a nice WOYWW and please don't stage an intervention. I will not be cured! LOL

You've been busy in that room Girl!!! I'd be all over that room too stuff from floor to ceiling.. You can get more creative when you can spread out I

Holy cow, Cindy. I guess you are right it's not for the faint of heart. You have a lot of inspirational products, tools, and supplies on your desk, table, chair, floor, and probably places I've already forgotten (grin). And your paper storage is amazing, too. I saw the bird cards (above) and loved them. You are really creative. Sorry your kids lost, but apparently you gained (square footage of storage space, that is). Almost forgot, I'm #1.

Lol Cindy, I guess we just got a glimpse at the real you! I would say "darn it" and just go the whole hog and turn the room in to a proper craft room!
