My new Ink Pad Storage!!

It arrived yesterday and I had to share!! I bought this from Ebay and would highly recommend it. The seller is awesome and the unit is awesome!!
Then I thought since I was downstairs taking this picture...I might as well show you the rest of my stampin' space. My basement is not developed, but it is still my own space and it is coming along quite nicely...even without walls, floor, lighting, etc ;0)

These are my two tables. The first is one of those large folding tables. I do not recommend getting one of these for stamping. First thing...I actually melted it while embossing ;0) and it has too much give to it to do other projects like setting eyelets and using large background stamps. But the other table is awesome. My mom bought it for me for Christmas. It is from Ikea here in Canada and it only cost $39.99!!! I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a crafting table!!
This pic is of my desk, but what I really wanted to show you was how I store my 8 1/2 X 11 cardstock. This is one of those plastic hanging file folder boxes. I bought a stack of files and seperated all my colors into their respective color families. But I have found now that I need another one. When I first started stamping I would just buy a pack of a full color family, but now I am buying individual colors as I run out. But I find this works great for me!

This is a pic of my wall of art. I just took some hemp thread and made a few rows to hang some of my own creations and some of the creations I have received from other people. I is a little bare right now as I gave away all mine for Christmas!! But I am workin' on getting my stock pile back up again ;0)

Here is the cabinet holding all my Stampin' Up! stamp sets and some of my embellishments and other odds and ends.

This is quite amazing!! This past May, my hubbys Grandmother past away. When his parents went out to clean up her things they brought back this supply of beads!! It is pretty amazing. I have used some, but they will truely last me my lifetime!! I am one lucky girl...I know!

And of course I had to take a pic of my beautiful Prima's!! All I can say is I want more of these beauties!!! Love them!
Well that's a little peak into my little space. Thanks for stoppin' by :0)

so does the wine help or hinder your card making? At least it would keep you warm in a cold basement. Maybe I shoould keep mine near my crafting area too!
