Big Sky Stampin' Papercrafting

I have been a crafter most of my life, starting in about 8th grade when I tried to embroider some frogs on a quilt, that I never finished! Although the list of what "I never finished" is long, and includes cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, quilting and more, my latest obsession is paper! I joined Stampin'Up! as an independent demonstrator in October 2011 and have been going like crazy ever since! I offer classes in my home, do catered card parties at your home and sell my cards locally in Bozeman, Montana and around the lovely Gallatin Valley. I would love to meet and talk to you if you are interested in the papercrafting hobby or just need some unique handmade cards for a special occasion!

Workspace DIY project!

Hey Stampers!
I'm excited to show you what I was up to on Saturday, with the much needed assistance of my husband!  I've been wanting to re-do my actual desk area in my stamping room for a few years now, but never had the space and wasn't sure what I wanted to do. Well, we swung into action on Saturday and after a few back and forth's with ideas, got going!  I chose to use the cube/modular pieces that the  Michaels Store has, mainly because it's about 3 miles from my house and they had a good supply in stock and it was 40% off. I purchased 8 cubes, 4 open ones, 3 drawer ones and 1 paper slot one. The cubes are stacked two high and two deep on either side of the desk. We then found two 15" x 8' premade white shelves at Lowes for a desk surface.  The cubes were easy to assemble and we did in the afternoon with the NCAA basketball games on in the background. We measured the space and decided 5-1/2' would be a good length of desk for the room and my husband sawed the shelves down. He screwed them on in a couple places for some stability, shimmed the cubes where needed as they are sitting on carpet and then I had the fun of loading up my new desk!  I'll probably rearrange things multiple times but I love it so much already!  Here are some pics:

I'm just sure my rubber stamping skills will skyrocket at this point with my new work space so organized!
Thanks for taking a peek!
Happy Stampin'!
