This is my newly installed and organized craft room. It used to be the kids' playroom before we moved overseas. Now they're older and don't need a playroom, so it's my playroom. Lucky me!
Here is my main stamping space. I have a stack of small-ish drawers on the left side. I have my most used items in them. On top, I have my CTMH embellishment organizers with most of my eyelets except SU. I've also labled these drawers for easy identification. I have my Classic Ink pads plus Kaleidacolor, metallic, embossing, and Versamark in an old cassette holder. I suspended it on two clear acrylic organizers from Office Depot. They came with clear drawers where I keep all of my pens except SU markers. There's also room for one each of my adhesives, pencil sharpeners.
I have my H20's in the tiny drawers to the left of my ink pads. My Prismacolors are next to those. I have a clear acrylic "riser" so the back one is taller than the front.
Finally, I got an Ott Light and I must say they are amazing. On the far left side, I have two more document organizers I bought long ago at Office Depot. I keep my most used papers in these organizers, plus cutting mats, thin paper cutters, templates, etc.
On the peg board, my DH installed a gutter for my big punches. I also keep my crimper, wavy crimper, decorative scissors, and CM cutting templates. I also picked up that wire mesh divided box from Oriental Trading Company. It's supposed to be magnetic, but I have no metal to magnetize it to, so my DH again put holes in the side and jimmyrigged pegboard hooks to hold it. I keep one with scissors, another with paint brushes, and the other with pencils, ink pens, bone folders, exactos, and CM multipurpose tool. In front of that, on the desktop, I have another mesh bin with a container of watercolor pencils and sponges.
Edited to add: The wire shelving on the top is mounted to the wall, but the lower ones actually hang from the upper shelf. I use the baskets to store fibers wound around cards and other goodies. I will eventually have the whole monogram alphabet up there as well.
My favorite thing: My Primas! Finally, I have room to display them.

Congratulations on creating such a well-organised space!!! And thank you so much for including so much detail on what you organised and how in your description. It is so helpful to those of us trying to make sense of a giant pile of crafting stuff!
