Welcome to our New Craft Studio

Welcome to our brand new Craft Studio.  It has been a work in progress since June.  It really was worth the wait.  This is the view from the family room entrance.  It is a very bright room with much better lighting than we are used to.  There is so much storage.  Everything has a place.  It makes it much easier to be able to come in and work on new projects. 

This is a view of our storage for our punches.  Everything is at our fingertips.  And the best part is that there is still room for many more.

This is a view of our work stations.  The area above is for our wood mount stamp storage.  Chris (Todd's brother) built it out of acrylic which makes it great so we are able to find things very easy. 

It is great to have all our stamps out and be able to see what we have without digging things to find what we are looking for. 


A closer look at the wood mount stamp storage.  Again there is still room to add more.  (Don't let Todd know I said that.)

 This is Todd's newest build a rack for storage of ink pads.  He is getting really good with his tools and wood.

This is storage for all our non-mounted stamps.  Everything is organized and labeled in cd cases. 
 This area is for ribbon storage (another rack built by Todd) and our Cricut and sewing machine and desk left to me by my mother-in-law.

We even have a sink in the studio for cleaning our stamps after we use them. 

A display area to show off our newest creations.

 This is the newest and last piece added to the studio.  It is storage for all our paper.  I am not sure if you can tell from this picture but this piece is massive and will hold a lot of paper at various sizes.  There is storage below for plastic shoe boxes that holds our extra products such as glue, cutting blades, and etc.  Both ends have bins so that as paper is cut we have places to throw scraps to be sorted later.  We even have storage for handmade papers underneath.  I also love that it has the matching counter top so it also gives an extra work surface.  We have our cutter and scoring boards up there.

So that is the tour of our new space.  We are so glad to finally be able to share with everyone.   Watch to see our future posts to see what comes from this creative space.
