SO WHAT HAS ALEX BEEN UP TO????

Well, I have NOT been creating BUT I have been feverishly working to totally finish my stamp/scrap room because I had only done one side and I was tired of looking at all the stuff stacked up. So, I took yesterday and today and went to town organizing, sorting, labeling, filing, etc. I am VERY happy with the way it turned out and feel great creative things coming soon - LOL! I thought I would share pics of my room now that it is done!!! I am REALLY excited and plan to play a TON tonight!!! So, here's the grand tour: The first pic shows the french doors as you walk into my room - I love my big windows, they let in so much natural light! And, the puppies do too, you can see Clyde all curled up on his big pillow! The next three pics show where I actually sit and work - I may have shown this before, but now it has all my SU! stuff right at my fingertips! I love how much room I have for everything - it is really a nice workspace. And yes, I do have a few SU! punches - LOL! Then, you see my tower of storage - it holds all my rub-ons, chipboard, non-SU! paper, adhesive, stamps, and lots and lots of embellishments!These two show where I do all my computer work (right where I am sitting right now!) and print my pictures, etc. And, of course ,the ever present diet coke over ice! Also, I have several storage containers that hold embellishments, paper scraps, and some of my dies for my sizzix machine. And, I have my card wall where I hang all the beautiful cards I receive from wonderful folks like you! These next three show the huge wall cupboards that Tony built for me to store all of my SU! stamps and some of my SU! business supplies. They are in the top cupboard. The bottom wall cupboard stores more stamps, all my Cricut items, my light box, extra ribbon, more sizzix dies, and more stamps. Then, there is a nice workspace in between the two cupboards where my Cricut machine, sizzix machines, Xyron, and Bind-it-All are kept. Also, I have my embossing trays there for now although I have other ideas for those *wink* So, there you have it - my craft room. I love it - it is all mine, I have all my stuff exactly where I want it, there is a tv, dvd player, radio, and phone - all I need is a fridge and I will never have to leave - LOL!

FACT#30
In keeping with my post, I love to organize things. I am always reorganizing my drawers, the kitchen, cupboards, my craft things, you name it - I like it to be totally neat and uncluttered. No small feat with three kids and well, my husband *wink*. In fact, tomorrow I am going to redo HIS office - HAH! Can't wait to see what that brings!
