New Stamping Space

Well my stamping space is pretty much done so here are a few pictures. I should've taken some befores of the other area so you could see how dark and sad it was.
Now it is nothing fancy by any means, but it is nice to have a little corner that is bright and pretty much clean.
My cuttlebug now has a home on top of the file cabinet that holds all my 8.5 X 11 cardstock. I have a peg board to the left that holds some wheel handles, scissors, a few embellishements. I need to get some more hooks or baskets so I can put that to use more.
This table you see on the right is my daughter's craft table. So she can be in there with me and working on her own projects.
These are my plastic candy jars filled with ribbons wrapped on those old wooden clothes pins. I need to label these. I have them divided into SU current, SU retired, and non-SU ribbons. I got the idea to do this from Nichole Heady's blog. Her jars are the pretty glass ones and she has one jar for each color of ribbon. Whew!
I stole this drawer unit from my husband's old office. My punches go in the drawers instead of taking up space on my desk.
That basket of scraps next to it needs to be filed.
The pink and brown things are from the dollar store. I also got a few other containers there that I throw my embellishments into.
See that one pink and brown container holding my incolor ink pads... it can fit two ink pads side by side. I haven't tested how far up you can stack them. Right now one side has 5 and the other had 4. Pretty nifty and it only cost $1. The narrow one next to it has all my adhesives like glue dots, dimensionals, super sticky tape, crystal effects, etc.

Take a look at these stamps. The top row that is only on one shelf is my SU current stamps. The next row that is across two shelves are my retired stamps that I haven't been able to part with. And I have parted with many retired stamps.

I also have a little cabinet that isn't pictured that holds some ink refills, craft spots, and some other misc. stuff.

Your stamping space is wonderful. I am a cardmaker too but have not yet posted any of my work.
I'm hoping to do that soon. Right now I'm working on 50 valentine cards for the kids at the children's home where my mom works.
I really enjoy your blog

This is SO nice! Your hard work really paid off! So you have to spill...which dollar store had those cute pink & brown storage cubes? And by the way, are those brand new stamps on your desk? Hmmm....
