One more (for now) storage idea to share with Moxie Fab World Creative Spaces Link Party - Show Me Your Storage Ideas. This over-the-door shelf unit fits on a closet door in my studio and holds some of the most-used paper punches: squares, circles, ovals, etc. Looks like I have room to add a few more wire shelves.

Here's another storage idea to share with Moxie Fab World Creative Spaces Link Party - Show Me Your Storage Ideas. This time I've used the thread spool holder to hold Fiskars edge punches. They fit just perfectly in between the "slats". I've also used each peg on the right side for a few handle-punches.

My studio/office has been in need of a thorough cleaning/downsizing for a long time, and I now have a little more incentive to get the job done. Moxie Fab World is hosting a Creative Spaces Link Party - Show Me Your Desk. So, here's the drafting table that I use for all my card-making (and homework when I am in school). The wall hanging is from Peru, brought back by my mom from one of her many trips.
My favorite craft item - the cutting board that always stays sharp and never needs replacement blades - is at one end. The little acrylic unit to the left of it holds just the essentials like a glue stick, scissors and a few blank notecards. It is a cosmetics organizer.
Another view of the cutter and organizer (with containers of paper packs in the background). It's nice to be able to work from two sides of my desk, and I can stand or sit in my tall drafting chair.
The items at the other end of the desk include an old DVD organizer that I now use for ribbon. I had originally hung it on a wall vertically, and tacked fishing line across the bottom of each "shelf" so the ribbon wouldn't roll out. My pencils, pens, scissors and much-used punches are contained in a teapot and mug set, and a big "chick" mug I found after an Easter sale years ago. On the far left you can see my first camera from the '60s.
I'll be back soon with more views of the studio and organization ideas.

I'm sharing a photo of my studio with Moxie Fab World's "Creative Spaces Link Party - Show Me Your Storage Ideas."
These are Martha Stewart edge paper punches stored in a former thread spool rack. Each punch can be taken down without disturbing the others, and it's so nice to be able to see them displayed rather than hidden in a drawer.

I designed an anniversary card for the Moxie Fab World "Photo Pocket Page Challenge". The journaling card is the rectangle on the right with the "T" and the sun. I added a cloud and butterflies over that, and arranged all the other pieces over a base of blue cardstock.
This is a large card - 6.5 by 4.5 inches. For some reason, it just seemed to need a little outline that I drew around everything. All die cuts, stickers and journal card are by Jillibean Soup - the Chilled Cucumber Soup collection.
