My workstation :-)

Since there hasn't been much action/creativity going on here lately I thought I would share some pics of my little "work-station"... (As always, if you love details, click on the pics for a larger view.)
Before we even start, a little disclaimer: the ugly colors on my walls are from the previous owners, eventually this room is supposed to become a nicely relaxing pale aqua blue or something like that... ;-)
This is actually a corner of my bedroom. (Who paints their bedroom poop brown!?... No wonder they got divorced!...) When my parents came in December I enlisted my Dad to make me a custom desk!!! We bought wood, he designed the desk to fit in the little window nook and hug my 2 little plastic organizers on wheels, then it was sanding, and staining/varnish time. Isn't my Dad just the best?? :-D
This is my desk and the cool view above... It's perfect in the morning and very relaxing, but in the afternoon it gets way too hot to work there since the sun hits directly that window! It's Florida! ;-)

On the left just some primas and assorted flowers and my little bee... ;-) The glass jars are from candles...

On the right the tools I use most often like scissors and such. The tall plastic jars are actually popcorn containers from Target Archer's Farm, yum, guess who HAD to eat all this delicious caramel pop-corn to get the containers? LOL ;-P... They now hold my ribbons on clothepins. I got the clothepins idea from Nichole Heady and I love seeing my ribbons that way but it isn't the most functional thing IMO, since the pins take a lot of room, so since space is an issue... I might have to revisit that.... I'm tempted by ribbons rings but am too afraid my cat will have a feast taking all my ribbons for cat toys! ;-)
The little shelf is still waiting for "someone" to get his electric saw out and cut it in half (to go on the opposite wall maybe) or at least to the size of the desk for more visual appeal... so it is sitting on my containers for now... the little glass jars (from Ikea) hold my buttons and dew drops by colors.

My drawers on the left, 1st one holds all sorts of adhesives (including glitter glues) and tools (my crop-a-dile is buried in here!)...

The 2nd one is for punches and Cuttlebug die-cuts (this is a heavy drawer!! ;-))

3rd one is for stamping stuff: Clear stamps, unmounted stamps, inks, embossing powders, acrylic blocks...

Last one is for my wood mounted stamps...
My papers and cardstocks are stored in the 2 big 12X12 file holders on the left of the desk.


On the right side, 1st drawer is for embellishments: stickers, paper frills, die-cuts...


2nd is for more embellishments! ;-): brads and eyelets, tags, threads and miscellanous...


Next is my "coloring mediums" drawer... markers, colored pencils, OMS etc...
The last drawer is a sort of "catch-all" for all albums, templates and such.
On the right I have a little rolling cart with My Cuttlebug and accessories, and that's about it!
As you can see there is A LOT of stuff in there so given the tiny space I think it's not too badly organized! Maybe one day I will have my own stamping room with stuff all over the place! For now I am trying to keep it contained and I am proud to say that I usually find what I am looking for very quickly! And the sight of all those colors makes me happy.
Now of course, I'm sure you have guessed that I removed the pile of "current projects" from the top of the desk before snapping away!... ;-D...
