Craft Cellar

I am afraid that the glimpse into my craft cellar is not as spectacular as the movie that Simone did on her blog. I am still a FAR cry away from being organized and this is only a glimpse of two sides of the area. However, for me this is progress and the more that I can bring down here and organize the more craft efficient I will become and be able to use all of the supplies that I have been hoarding.

Here is the left side of my desk down in the craft cellar/office. I will eventually show you the right side of the desk once I clean it off.

Next to my desk is a horizontal two drawer (only one drawer is in it)file cabinet. On top of the cabinet is the big box that holds my Christmas tree. I have decided to use the top of the box to store crafty goodness.

Here is another picture of the top of the tree box and beyond to the corner of the basement. The black and white boxes stacked up hold sewing patterns.

There is a table that holds my sewing machine and serger. That table is full of unorganized crafting stuff so I will take a picture when I am not embarassed of the clutter. On the left hand side of the table I have stacking boxes that I bought at JoAnn's. Each package had three boxes inside and they "nest" when they are not full. I have used my trusty label maker and each box is labeled with the contents (chipboard, stickers, 3-D stickers, alphabet stickers and numbers, Disney...). To the left of the boxes is an IOPC (mfg name) that my company reps. When we moved in July this unit was not coming to the new office. I got it for free!!! The top has moveable 8-1/2x11" trays and holds the craft store cardstock on the right and SU cardstock on the left.

To the left of the IOPC unit is another sewing machine in a cabinet. On top of the cabinet I have stacked 12x12" plastic paper storage and have separated my paper by color. To the left of that tower are two small IOPC units that have stuff stuffed into the trays that need to be pulled out and organized. It is a far cry from organized but much better than having all of this stuff up in my bedroom and everywhere else in the house just laying around.

Here is a full shot of the IOPC unit. The cabinet on the bottom has one shelf inside. This entire thing is filled up SU stamp sets.
