Hey everyone!! Stephanie Gold from Golden Simplicity here this month for some Share Your Space fun! I sort of took over our home office at our old house so when we moved this summer, I made sure to organize the room to be more craft room with a side of home office. 😉 I am the home “office manager” anyway, right?!
Starting off our luxurious tour, I will bring you to the office side of the room which is beautifully decorated with this old… I mean VINTAGE… folding table typically used for parties when covered in plastic table cloths. It sits on top of a few gorgeous plastic tubs with items from our move that have been sitting there for months and will probably end up getting donated in a couple years when I decide I no longer need them sitting at my feet.
The lovely desktop computer has proven no longer working, but still contains all of my addresses so here it sits, a completely non functional, expensive, Apple computer shaped statue until I can figure out how to fix it (don’t tell hubby). The chair is actually from my parent’s dining set growing up and is surprisingly comfortable… this might actually qualify as vintage haha.
On the other side of this gorgeous piece of furniture you’ll find my Silhouette, paper cutter, cardstock organizer, and my $3 Target steal of a light pink card base holder thingy (completely scientific term).
On the left of the folding table and fancy computer “art” is my printer which sits on top of our filing cabinet and the “No Craft Room Is Complete Without” Teal Raskog Cart (but this sucker is seriously amazing and I can’t imagine my life without it).
The top of my cart holds all of my inks and acrylic blocks, colored pencils & pens, date stamp, and some oddball items like those gold clips, chapstick, and that one random Maggie Holmes stamp that I love. 🙂
The middle holds all of my dies, washi tapes, and my baby wipes which are adorned with sort of a “steal these and see what happens” note (but it’s ok because I put a smiley face at the end of it).
And then the bottom holds all of my punches, MISTI, and embellishments organized in plastic bags inside that yellow wire basket.
Onto my craft desk which I couldn’t fit all in one picture… apologies!! The left side has my clock/speaker/phone charger iHome thingamabobber (again, scientific) and my Traveler’s Notebook which I use quite often. I write all over my mat with random quotes and phrases and song lyrics and it ends up getting pretty filled up. My kids also like to come scribble something down for me or place a sticker on there for me too. 🙂
I have some Moroccan lanterns, a family photo of my lovies, and a framed quote that keeps me motivated… The birdy is from my Grandpa’s house – it always reminds me of him. And then I have feathers and some paper antlers always hanging out (don’t know why… I just like them because I’m all hippie and random) and right now I have these gorgeous dried leaves too that one of my besties brought back for me from up north because fall is my favorite – isn’t that the SWEETEST?! Love her… Real leaves are hard to come by around here (I live in the desert) so I truly love having these around. 🙂
And then the right side of my desk has the tools I use the most… scissors, adhesives, a few more washi tapes, doilies, water colors, water color paper, rulers, etc… and then my beloved Big Shot. 🙂 I have clear plastic containers (99 cents from Home Depot ya’ll!!) on a shelf with all of my DT stamp sets. I’m pretty big on keeping my stash and tools low and I don’t like spending top dollar on organization either. Most everything I use is either hand me down, gift, or Target dollar aisle.
Welp, that’s basically it!! Thank you all for stopping by to check out my little crafty space!! Much love friends!
