#1-Iris Cart with large drawers for paints adhesives and other stuff. On top, CD drawers with unmounted stamps. BTW, I only use Iris carts and organizers because those Sterlite things eventually buckle if you put any weight in or on them. So the extra money for the Iris brand is well worth it in the long run.
#2-My favorite Iris Cart with the really big drawers and the laminate top. Strong enough to actually use that buried Sizzix machine on top of it. The black (actually dark brown) boxes are CD boxes from the Target One Spot. More unmounted stamps. The other 4 drawers are Iris stackable drawers. Stamps, most used stamping supplies, punches, and supplies needed readily are in those. The idea books are in another Target thing. In the large drawers are my refills for the Photo Mate, photo paper, mailing things, plastic bags, Sizzlets, stamp pads, etc.
#3-Wire racks that used to hold paper. Now they have my chipboard and ribbon on top, tools, flowers and more ribbons and embellishments in 8 1/2x11 plastic boxes, and foam stamps. Next to it is another Iris cart with mounted stamps.
#6-3-shelf wire racks sitting on crates to lift them up off the floor. Makes it easier to get to the bottom shelf. Mostly cardstock, magazines and embellishments in various containers, like a lunch box, a colander, a Kraft Tote and another CD box. (they really are the perfect shape & size and very versatile!
So, there you are. You can see that I love little decorative containers. Maybe next I'll take pictures of some of my favorites with what's in them. (Like that purple colander that has the work "play" painted on it. It's full of rub-ons!) I mentioned that I will only buy Iris carts. My other requirement, for smaller containers: if it's not cute, it must be clear! It is so much easier to find what I need when I can see through things.
I'd love to hear your comments or suggestions on my space. TFL!
