That's a great start!
We moved to a new (bigger! yay!) house in May of 2010 and I actually have a room dedicated to get my craft on, but it's a wreck. It's also our office - which we don't use because we both have laptops...but that's another story
There are currently no light fixtures in that room, so I just have a desk lamp (which drives me nuts...keep reading
) Eventually I'd like to install some track lighting above my desk...maybe this year we'll get to that.
I started out simple - my desk is a bit smaller than I'd like, but it's sturdy and I've had it forever. I bought one of those over-the-sink shelves to attach to it - I nailed it down because I HATE things moving around on my desk. That shelf had a rod for holding a paper towel roll, so I (am going to) use that for ribbon/spools of trim for any current projects. There is also a small wire basket attached (for holding sponges and scrubbers at the sink), and I use that for any supplies that I'm currently using or will need for a project I'm working on. I also have my sewing machine's plug resting in it for easy access.
The spools I don't use often, etc will be hung from one of those multiple pants hanger (looks like a hanger but has like 4 or 5 bars across it that unlatch) - this will hang either in the nearby closet, or if I can find some type of bathroom shelf with built in towel rack it will hang from that. I'm trying to get away from having things actually sitting on my work surface - but I'm cheap (frugal!) and I'm picky
I have two storage carts next to my desk...one is a plastic Rubbermaid three-drawer tower; this has all kinds of stuff stashed in it. It's great for those seasonal projects that you might start in the summer, and either finish before that season rolls around, or never finish
The other is a wooden stand with three wicker baskets. In this one I keep a lot of my scrapbooking/paper crafting supplies - markers, envelopes, papers, stamps, etc. Within those drawers, I use desk organizers and smaller baskets to keep things grouped together. My sewing machine sits on top of the wooden one when I'm not using it. (I'd like to get a dust cover/cozy for my sewing machine eventually.)
My desk sits against a wall, so I have three regular sized clip boards hanging from hooks. These are currently blank/empty, but I want to cover them with crafty looking papers/embellishments, then use them to hang things that have inspired my current work-in-progress: color schemes, quotes, clip art, etc.
My biggest problem is keeping things in sight. I've found that 1)if I can't see them or 2)I have to dig through piles/stacks I won't use anything - even if it's a brand new package. I'll get lazy/frustrated/tired of looking for something and move on to something else.
I also need to find a solution for storing/organizing my papers and embellishments while still being able to keep them in sight. In addition to the bathroom shelf with towel rack, I might see if I can find a cabinet type set up so I can put those paper bins there too...I want to have them sorted by color so I can see what I have available. I think I want to get some type of revolving rack that I can clip packets of embellishments to, so I can always get to them easily, and keep them gathered together. I might try to hang peg board above my desk as well, to keep my scissors, seam ripper, ruler, etc handy (and off my desk)
These are just some of my ideas...not sure if they'd help or not! I hope you post more pictures as you keep organizing - I love to be organized, but I suck at it!!
(And without hijacking your post, if any one has suggestions or ideas for any of the ideas I've mentioned, please reply here or PM me - I'm ALWAYS looking for ways to improve!!)
