You read that right, I finally unpacked most of my craft boxes. I have a few boxes I still need to sort through and I have some boxes of crafty supplies to be sold or donated... But all of my supplies have been unpacked and somewhat organized! It dawned on me last week that I was about be 20 weeks pregnant - half way there - and if I didn't get my craft stuff unpacked, I would be losing out on my free time to craft! Who knows how much energy I'm going to have come late January. I have a few, not that great quality photos to share. I just used my iPhone to take a few quick shots this morning before heading off to work.
Don't look to closely on the left there... I'm hoping to get through those boxes this upcoming weekend. There's also a few in the closet. My goal is to not use the closet as much as possible - once we're ready to turn this more into a nursery, I'll have to utlize that space for my crafty stuff. Here's quck rundown of what you see - my ephemera box (that will eventually be put into scrapbooks), ribbon and twine, paint brushes, glue, finished cards, SMASH*book stuff, punches, lots of embellishments, roller date stamps, stamping supplies, mists and my organized paper and embellishments by holiday/season...
Over here on the bookshelf we have unused storage containers, stamps, more stamps, paper, project life things, more embellishments, paint and craft magazines. The left side of my desk I have my most common supplies and all sorts of things in those drawers... Like embossing powder, Memento ink, glitter, Stickles... I also keep stationary things in there like notepads.
Next I have my heat gun, lamp, moist towelettes and ink! I also have some really cute suppliers that I don't want to use but rather look at 'cause they're so pretty on the windowsill. You'll see on top of the seond table I placed my paper, some washi tape, Cropodile and printer. I like having my paper more reachable!
Finally, you'll see my scraps and my die cutting machines! This is my favorite! I love having my Big Shot and Silhouette out and ready to use (well, I still have to plug in my Cameo). My Cricut is under the table until I find my cartridges... They're in the closet somewhere. Also hiding under there are where I keep my smaller paper pads and my giant box of bags (plastic, muslin, etc). I also have a few boxes of unfinished projects. I hope I can get through some these next few months!
So there, you go! A month (and almost a half) later and it's finally unpacked! I'm so excited that I can finally get to crafting. I'm also going to be selling a few craft supplies so look for that announcement soon!
