The Craft Hovel! Part Two!

Well, went for a lovely day out with Bev yesterday, and Sir Stampalot happened to be on the way home! After chatting a lot to lovely Janice, and a bit of shopping (I kept going back for more!!) We got on to the topic of storage!
So, this is for Janice - an update on the Craft Hovel, otherwise known as Silly Billy's room, as he tends to leave his chews and toys all over the floor!
This is my desk - baskets in front of me with essential bling and flowers. The little chest of drawers holds spacers and pins. The carousels are by Making Memories, as is the Slice storage on the desk too.
The carousels fit all my Copics in - I have all the colours in a mix of original, sketch and ciao. I have room in the centre for essential tools - they also match the storage for the Slice Machine. The drawers below the compartments for the pens hold brads of similar colours to the pots, so I have things to hand.
I have really handy cubbies on the wall - they are IKEA Hensvik - I bought 4 of them, put them side by side and left the decorative bits on the top. This pic is one half of the wall . Lots of cubbies means that I can sort inks, flowers, buttons and embellies in colour, and have space at the top for my Stampin Up! stamps. The baskets below hold glimmer mists in the matching colours, so I can lay my hands on things easily!
 Underneath the cubbies hang my nesties / dies on an IKEA kitchen rack - so again everything is to hand.
These were recently added to the room! My punch collection expanded recently, so these drawers hold punches by manufacturer, and my Bind it All kit too. These were from 'The Range'. An added bonus is that it gives me space to place my Cricut and Big Shot, and not have to move them to use them. Just realised you can see a bit of Silly Billy - this is where he likes to stay when I'm playing in my / our room!
 The final pics (if you have not nodded off by now!!), are the other wall - these are the specialist units from Inkylicious/Craft Racks. They just mean I can see all my colours and types in one place! Bonus!! Seeing the picture also reminds me - I need to buy more ribbon! Lol!
Just below these racks are paper storage from the same retailer - 12 x 12 racks for paper, which are a total blessing! Seeing as I am a bit of an obsessive in the paper department!! I have a large wicker basket on top with 12 x 12 paper pads in. You can see my pics of my dogs and adopted dolphin!! Lol!  My 'need to hand' tools are in the holder at the side, and the box below holds my stationery items - printer inks etc.

So there you go! I'm off now to catalogue my new stamps!! Have a nice day! K :-)
