Misson accomplished

I  have finally finished the clean up.  Took over a week, I knew it would.  Here are some pics of what the room looks like now.

This is the shelving unit I got from my DD.  It is holding all my cs, except for my Stampin up cardstock.  The top of it holds all my 8 1/2 X 11, 11 X 17 and larger paper.

This shows a rotating rack that I bought from our local recycle center.  I thought it would hold paper when I bought it, but the spaces were not big enough.  So now I store stampin up sets, and nesties,  attached with magnets on the corners.  The iris carts hold stamps, punches, embellishments, stamped images, and how to papers and templates for paper embroidery and paper cutting (3-D pics, templates and pop up cards etc.)

This is another shelf I got from my DD.  As you can guess, she also was doing a cleanup at her house.  The shelf houses misc. stamping stuff and all the ribbon overflow from behind the door and the iris cart.  The drawers hold my pergamano crafting stuff, teabag folding stuff and general crafting stuff.  I have a lot of STUFF.  The top of the closet shelf holds boxes of ribbon and lace, wall paper books, all my scrapbooking albums(I have 7 but don't know why because I do not scrapbook).

This is my file cabinet that holds templates, paper, hand made envelopes and lots of instructions how to do stuff.  I do not know if you can tell, but the outside of the door has a hanging  fabric storage unit(can't think what they are called, kind of like a shoe holder) that holds 24 stampin up stamp sets.
To the right of that is an iris cart that has ribbon and fibers.

The back of the door holds some of my punches. The space behind the door and the iris cart hold ribbon.  There is also a narrow shelf (against the wall) here that holds wood mounted stamps. The shelving unit beside this holds my brasss stencils, quilling supplies and misc. paper and supplies.

This is where I do my cuttlebugging.  The squar shelving unit holds all my little scraps tha I use for the cuttlebug and mypunches.  The iris carts, below, hold Stampin up cs, (left hand unit) wood mountd stamps, foam mounted stamps and ink pads. 

The corner of the room here has a narrow shelf for wood mounted stamps.  The iris cart holds prima and silk flowers as well as some wood mounted stamps in the bottom shelves.  The white shelf holds several color box petal point ink pads (some of which are nearly 10 years old and still work), my crimper, my circle cutter, and oval cutter as well as glitter glue, stickles and liquid pearls.  This is sitting on my light table, which I hardly ever use any more (since I got my cuttlebug).
The parts holder, behind the light holds pearl x, radient pearls and embossing powder.

This is my main working area, to the left.  The desk to the right will now be for stampng freinds.  I have made myself a promise not to let it get piled high with STUFF.  All the shelves in the back hold markers, scissors, glue, tape, clear stampin up stamps, ink pads, bling, embossing powder, etc., you know, all the stuff you need to make cards.

Well, that is about it for my room makeover.  Now, all I have to do is get rid of the overflow that is in my bathroom, upstairs hallway and master bedroom.  This may take another week :-).
Hope you have enjoyed seeing what can be done when you (actually I mean I)  put your mind to it .

Happy day to you all.

Wait, I have one more comment. In one photos I can see outside and it looks lovely. I watch a few tv shows that film in Vancouver and I want to go one day- it looks lovely. However, I being immobile in weather colder than 40 degrees so I'll miss the beautiful winters you probably have. One summer though, I'd like to go and see all those beautiful mountains and greenery you guys have.
(PS: I've been to Montreal and Quebec City but it looks different than Vancouver).

I rarely create responses, but i did a few searching
and wound up here "Misson accomplished".
And I actually do have some questions for you if it's allright. Could it be simply me or does it give the impression like some of the comments look as if they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on additional online social sites, I would like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Would you list of every one of your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

Feel free to surf to my web page ...

Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon every day.
It's always helpful to read through articles from other authors and practice something from their web sites.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I to find
this matter to be really something that
I feel I might never understand. It seems too complicated and
very vast for me. I am looking ahead for your next post, I
will attempt to get the hang of it!
