If you are anything like me, you want to craft something beautiful without spending the entire day at it, so let’s Organize Your Crafting!

On September first, 2020 we moved! Yep, during the pandemic. While I began struggling with long Covid. And it has been the best experience of all my 34 moves in this lifetime. We don’t have to move again in Heaven, do we? I love creating in The Nook.

Instead of having an entire room for my crafting, I deliberately pared down my stamp supplies so I could use the kitchen nook … Overlooking my backyard garden and bird feeders! To my right is the coffee bar. Now tell me, was that smart or no? (there are artificial sunshine lights mounted under the cabinets here) As you can see, I use punches a lot for creating my 4 Cards in 30 Minutes. I have everything popped up on Kickstands that gives me space for storing a nifty brush for quick cleanup. You know I don’t keep scraps. Swoosh, and into the bin they go.

I assembled a mobile kitchen island, from IKEA, for my cutting station. It holds my Big Shot, a Creative Crate from Stamp-n-Storage, the Simply Scored, and a teacher’s paper cutter. This is where I stamp, too. I do a lot of my work while standing. I only sit down to clean up and drink chai tea! The cutting island has two wheels at one end, so I can move it closer or farther away from the desk.

Stamp-n-Storage in The Nook has saved me time and space. I have stamp sets up in the cabinets, and card stock is tucked away in custom-made Stamp-n-Storage units to protect from sunlight.

Stamp-n-Storage’s attention to detail and ecologically sound practices was a very pleasant surprise to this daughter of a cabinet maker. My father would have highly approved of these units, and the smell of fresh lumber makes me happy.

Did you catch those points about being eco-friendly? Very little waste and even the waste is utilized in animal bedding and burned for heating! I love that.
