Gettin It Together


 
Check out what THIS girl got for Valentine's Day!!!  The hubs wanted a coffee maker but I wanted work space!!!  It's no secret, ESPECIALLY HERE that I'm workin to get my craft space in the new house put together.  It is also no secret that the "secret" to my style of organization is to utilize vertical space, so when my friend Cindy showed me a picture of these AWESOME Stamp n' Storage ink pad organizers I was preparing myself to beg and beg HARD.  You see I already had storage for my Stampin Up ink pads....

Don't get me wrong.... this rotating color caddy from Stampin Up is a VERY good option, but my craft room reduced by half when we moved into the new house and I just don't have the work space I once did.  Anything and everything that can be put on the wall saves me precious work space.
 
 
And I didn't want my Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads in a different spot than the rest of my ink pads (that too is an organizing secret of mine.... ALL like items can ALWAYS be found in the same spot) and besides, I've always been told that you're supposed to store ink pads with the pad upside down and this storage solution allows me to store them that way.... FINALLY!  The one thing I really wish Stamp n' Storage would do is make the spaces for the distress pads a bit larger to accommodate the sponge rectangles I have attached to the bottom of each of my distress pads with velcro....
 
 
but even though these are a tight fit, they are still fitting and look FABULOUS and are SOOOOO solid being made of wood.  I also liked the free shipping and the fact that I got both of these organizers in 5 days.  10 High Fives Stamp n' Storage!!!!  You've made my Valentines Day!!!!
