workroom: a home for all my things

for the first of many posts, i’d like to swoon over my new apartment. jake and i spent all last week moving, across town with all our junk, into a two-bedroom apartment, and that second bedroom is being made into a workroom for all my crafts and artsy-fartsy-ness. i’m so incredibly pumped!

i built a furniture-in-a-box pantry cabinet that i stuffed full with my jewelry, cards, bubble mailers, wrapping and shipping equipment, and show displays. don’t ask me how i crammed it all in there! and i got a matching white embellishment center – basically a big self-standing shelving unit, with ribbon dowels and cubbyholes so everything i ever need is right at my fingertips.

it was torture when i bought the cabinet and the shelving center, a couple weeks before we moved, because i couldn’t open them or fill them or anything, since there was nowhere for them to go in the old place. torture, i tell you!

below are some in-progress shots of what the room looks like, as i’m putting it together. there are many changes yet to come, including lots of wall art and the obvious organizational tasks that come with moving all your crap across a big city, haha!

so, what kind of set-up do YOU have? share all the little ways you keep your crafts in an organized manner, or for that matter, chaotic mess! J link us to some shots of your space on flikr, etc. and show us how you do what you do!

(more pictures soon, i promise!)
