Hey everyone!! I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!! I had fun plans...that came to a halt when i had my first experience with food poisoning! Yuck. Hope it was my last experience too!! But I am doing much better and am so ready for a productive week :)
Today's post will be fun. But I have to give you a few warnings :) I have had email request from YOU along with a few of my co-workers :) to show some pictures of my home office. As you know, I am SO lucky to work from home and go in the office when I am needed. (I live 1 hour away from the DCWV office so I still make it in once every 2 weeks at least). I joke and tell them that I get WAY more accomplished at home than I would in the office....I laugh but it's probably very true :) When my boys are both in school, I plan on spending a lot more time there!!
So I have to warn you. My office is nothing too special. It has no place in a scrapbooking magazine or any blog other than this one...but I doubt the majority of you have rooms like that of your own! So maybe a few of my ideas will inspire you to get your stacks in a row ;)
My office is right off of my kitchen...in our house plans it was named a Breakfast Nook but I of course saw it as a scrapbook nook :) This is what you see from my kitchen.
I try to keep it somewhat picked up because you can see it from my kitchen, but sometimes I have to admit it looks like Halloween exploded in my office....like it did last week :)
Tubbies full of stuff...but I seem to know exactly where everything is :)
12x12 Paper Holders from American Crafts. Love these for all of my open stock cardstock.
Magazine holders from DCWV INK. Love the labels. Keeps everything in it's place and out of the dust! My biggest issue in my house :)
3rd shelf holds our newest products that I haven't shown yet. After I show them to you, they get labeled and put on my shelf!
My desk...love how I can stand up and have everything within my reach.
I love my label maker :)
Stacks all labeled on their spines. Whoever told me this trick, I love forever :)
Bins on the sides of my desk with matstacks and 8x8's
And the best part of my office for this workin' mama? The view from my chair.....
I don't miss a thing with my little boys! I love being in the kitchen and in the middle of all of the action. It makes it so easy to work while the macaroni and cheese is boiling on the stove, or while my little guy is working on his homework. I never miss a thing as I work. And that is so important to me!!
So there you have it! I told you it was nothing special! But to me, it is just what I need!
Love my job.
Love this DCWV.
Love this crafting industry!!
Back on Thursday with July's Stack-a-holic Template Challenge!!!
