My sweet parents gave me a generous Valentine’s gift this year and I have committed to using it for a new desk so I will have room to play. My area is small and I want to have a desk with a hutch type area moving up the wall to maximize my storage and space. plus I dream of a mounted light over the area and a spot to mount my camera to make tutorials. Now I am on the hunt for some good ideas to put my plan into action. I have in mind a tall revolving shelves to hold my stampin up stamp sets. I want it to have doors as well as the other hutch area so I can mount my ribbon storage and have some artwork displayed. I also want to have some area to showcase some personal knick-knacks which have sentamental value and to pretty up my area. So my goal is to repurpose some of my shelving units and enlist some help to build the rest. Big task to undertake Brian thinks but I have been watching some youtube videos and scanning splitcoaststampers craftroom posts and there are some really awesome ideas using premade shelving and cube units. I was going to unmount my stamp sets but as Brian pointed out then I would need to invest in cling mount and something to store them all in so I figure the money I save on this I can invest in the desk area. I finished my 12×12 paper storage make from cardboard boxes cut down and modpodged some old wallpaper onto them and they look pretty good if I do say so myself. I was able to collect some vintage mason jars a few months back to hold my button collection and a few other small goodies which will look really pretty on a shelf. I am wondering about keeping my 8 1/2×11 paper in the file cabnet or moving it into the same kind as my 12×12. and then there is the 8×8 and 6×6 I have way too much paper but I love it so 🙂 Now that I will have some time to carve out to play I am really looking foward to getting to sit down and get creative. My area will be a sweet reminder of my Mom who always loved my handmade cards and I will get to have them back to display in her honor. I miss her terribly and some days are harder than others but I will move foward and cherish the time we were able to have together and know I will see her again someday, This is said with a glad heart. So I will close so I can chase down the wild ones to get some lunch. I hope this finds you all well.
Love and hugs to you from me 🙂
