Organizing

Over the last couple of weeks I've been trying to reorganize my studio to come up with a layout that works best for me.  So today I thought I'd share a little bit of what I've done so far. 

We moved into this home over 2.5 years ago and it took me almost 2 years to really start using my new studio.  I really loved my last studio an this one just didn't feel inspiring to me.  I think its because it has carpet and I was so afraid of staining it with paint.  I eventually got over it and yes I did stain the carpet, lol.  The other problem was the lighting so my DH installed track lights for me.  It still has lighting issues but it's much better.  I like to work sitting down so I'm trying to bring my supplies in closer to me.  So yesterday I rearranged and added another ALEX drawer set to my workstation.

Excuse the mess on my desk :D  I haven't cleaned up after my last project.  See the red box in back of my ottoman, it holds fabric and has my old sewing machine on top. 

Okay....so, you wanna see inside my drawers?!! 

These are the drawers on my left:
This is where I keep all my pens, markers, Exacto knifes and adhesive.

I just set this drawer up yesterday, it has all of the new jewelry things I've been buying lately.

These are little odds and ends.  It also has a sliding organizer on top.

I found this organizer at my local grocery store.  It slides back and forth nice and easy :D

These are all my brads and buttons.

The last drawer holds all my rubons. 

I don't wanna bombard you with too many pics so that's it for today.  I'll be back tomorrow to show you what I put in the new Alex draw set on the right.  If you have any organizing tips or suggestions, I'd love to hear them. 

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!!!

    1. I really like these drawers too because the go from shallow to deep. They can really hold a lot of supplies.

  3. Ooh, great organisation! It must be good to have all that in reach. I'm scrapping at the dining table these days, so have taken to standing while I scrap so I can reach and grab things off the shelves quickly! x
