My Storage #2 To The Right Of My Work Space


Today I have more storage photos - this time of the units to the right of my work desk. In the mugs I have my Prismacolor colored pencils (you can see my electric pencil sharpener to the left and behind this mug), the Q-tips and toothpicks in front, tape dispenser, all of my scissors and favorite cutting blade, then the miscellaneous tools and pens I use most often and in the last mug are glues, Crystal Effects and white gel pens.

Behind them in the large white turn table are all of my SU markers with my brushes in the center and in the corner to the left of it are the handy wipes. A number of years ago I was a SU demonstrator and at that time I purchased the entire set of their markers and since then I continue to replace individual markers as needed and add each year's 'In Colors' to my supply. I keep them grouped together in the color families. I keep the SU water color pencils with the markers also.
Next to the turn table are my 8 1/2 x 11 card stock supplies. I most always use SU card stock as I prefer that brand but from time to time I will see some colors that I like when I am in Archiver's and if they have a coupon I will purchse some. I have the current colors labeled as you can see - I cut the symbols out of the SU catalog. On the left are 2 containers that are retired colors and on the right are extra bulk supplies of the current colors and the white, glimmer, shiny, etc. card stock.

Beneath the card stock containers is where I keep my folded 4 x 5 1/2 cards and also any 4 x 5 1/2 cut card stock and under that are the 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 cut card stock - all for easy access when I am creating cards and projects. The solid color scraps of card stock I keep in the container that I posted a photo of last Thursday - that sits on the table behind my chair. At the end are my paper crafts books and also another marker set I use for odd colors.

In the drawers underneath the bookcase I have many more supplies. The set of drawers at the far left hold a lot of miscellaneous things that I don't use everyday. The top one holds my embroidery threads, silk ribbons and cords. The second one has my glitter and embossing powders, embossing pens and Liquid Applique pens. The third drawer holds all of my paper flowers.

The last three drawers hold my quilling supplies and miscellaneous items and kit supplies.

On top of the drawer unit to the right of these I have my small Fiskars cutting board, which I use for scoring, and my Score-Pal. In the four small drawers below I have miscellaneous supplies of different kinds of tape, sponges, Super Glue, bear making supplies, etc. and it is also where I keep my SU chalk set and also my sample CS rings that I made.

In the first large drawer are all of my flower and leaf punches.

In the bottom large drawer are all of my border and corner punches and all miscellaneous (bat, star, fence, etc.) and odd shapes punches like my tag punches.

The bookcase/drawer unit next to these holds all of my three-ring binders that contain hard copies for easy access of classes I have taken, tutorials, templates, techniques, etc. that are also in my computer files.

On the bottom shelf in the left corner is where I keep my 12 x 12 solid cardstock and also where I keep my patterned paper - with the scraps kept in front of the uncut sheets.

Thank you for stopping by today to visit my blog! We still have sunshine here in this part of WI - such a strange winter! Wishing you a happy Monday!
