Well I am finally getting around to posting some pictures of my stamping area. I love to look at other people stamping areas and get ideas. I hope you all enjoy.
I live in a brick rambler (no basement=small space), this area use to be my formal dining room until I moved it. I love to move furniture around in my house, my house never looks the same twice. The closet use to be my pantry.
The desk was given to me by a friend, the shelves were bought at a craft store unfinished (I painted them). All my SU paper is in the rolling cart under the desk, I just roll it out when needed. The drawers to the side of the desk hold my everyday stuff, adhesives, cutters, envelopes, etc. The large drawer houses all my word stamps, which I have a lot of. I like having all this stuff right at my finger tips. My stamp pad holder is vertical CD holders that I turned horizontal. I have to put 2 CD's to get the pads to stay up right. I got those at Wal-mart for cheap. I painted them black.
The closet is were everything else is. On the 3rd shelve up on the right are all my current catalog sets and on the left are all my reitred sets. Yes, I am a hoarder. I just can't seem to get rid of stamps, they come in but never leave. On the 1st shelve in the middle is my newest purchase, 2 tool drawers from Target. They hold all my alphabet stamps by letter plus I few other ideas. There are 2 there one in front of the other.
My little ones are getting up. If you have any questions about my space let me know.
Thanks for looking. I hope I can inspire you with some organizing ideas like so many of you have done for me.

Your space is very sweet. Isn't it nice to have a little piece of heaven all your own. I am just beginning to organize my room and instead of you getting ideas, you have given me some. Enjoy your creative area as much as you can!

You have an amazing space!
When you say you have all of your alphabet stamps by letter, please explain. Do you mean that you have lots of different alphabets, and all of the "a's" are in one drawer, all of the "b's" in another drawer, etc., or do I misunderstand?
I don't know where you live but would you come visit me and organize while your here. I'll babysit you can direct. Your space is GREAT. I've got a whole bedroom and it's not anything near as neat as yours.
