I love all the natural light, when I open the front door it's even better. I really do have everything almost at my finger tips and it's more efficient. Even my husband is a little happier with it. It seemed to open the living room up a bit more.
There's all my ribbon and paper. The ribbon is just on a cheapy curtain rod attached to the shelf. I highly recommend those paper keepers from Cropper Hopper.
My homemade "clip it up" is just another cheapy curtain rod that I used cup hooks to attach to the shelf and then used cheapy shower curtain hooks to hook up the embellishments. I LOVE it. I put the stuff I use most on there and basically anything that had a hook on it. In the other picture you can see I have clear shoe boxes with other embellishments in them. I like that as I can kind of see what I have in there.
I have also labeled the "crap" out of everything. That way all I have to do is look at the spine of the book or binder and I know immediately what's in it. I love it!!! I have all my Micheal Strong stamps in one binder, and so on.
Well enough about all that. I'm off to finish my 34 pages by the 6th. I better get on it!!
and PLEASE go do something creative!!
