 Behind the door! every inch of wall space has something on it, I need a biggar room, but DH develops selected hearing when this topic is brought up!! hmmmm
 some of my punches, I have others at the left side of my desk ( the flat type)
 My computer space!
 My many, many storage boxes
 Big shot and dies shelf
 above my desk more Sir Timmie's dies and inks
 more storage shelves

 Storage shelves ( cant get enough of these)  x x
 My DD bought this for me as she knows how much I love the movie Wizard of Oz (lol)
 coloured cardstock etc,
These storage drawers I have all the way round the room, so thats my space for now! and if you are wondering why this mad women is showing the world her space it's all down to the lovely Julia at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/  pop over for a visit or even join in its addictive but fun.

Your room looks wonderful. How fun it would be to craft with you! Isn't it fun to tidy up.... sadly, I'm so good at creating a mess, It seems my craft room is never totally tidy.

I loved seeing all of your room May, you've got some truly gorgeous things. Perhaps what you need is more cohesive storage, not a bigger room!!

Hugs

Wonderful trip through your room setup. Love those black and white striped boxes.
I also thought the big metal and wood shelf they sit on was fab. My friend has those from Costco. They are so sturdy and can hold such a great deal of weight...they are really fab.
Thanks for sharing your space with us today.

Wow, your room is SO neat. What a clever way to store the punches.

I LOVE the Oz sign, too cute!

Happy Woyww,

Bubbles said...

Have to agree with Sandy - the message from Toto is just brilliant :)
I love your workspace... maybe if I sorted out a bit of storage on my walls there wouldn't be so much mess everywhere else, and I may find my floor again! *lol*
Have a wonderful WOYWW!

Oh May what an amazing space and you're so organised too.
I can see I've got a long way to go...
By the way, I wanted to thank you for passing on the versatile blogger award. I still haven't got my 15 nominated blogs. That's quite an amount for a young (figuratively speaking)newie like me. I'll try my best though...but it may take me a little time.
I really appreciate it ;D

Happy WOYWW!

...May that is one tidy desk and I have to say i've got a touch of craft room envy...Mel :)

Redanne said...

Wow, I love having a snoop around your room, it is soooo organised! Mr Linky is working again, but can't see you there so have found you using the traditional route! Regards, Anne #27 and at the moment also #48

Trish Latimer said...

That Oz sign is fabulous! And that is a really good way of storing punches! Trish #31

Ann B said...

Love the Toto comment, so funny, it made me snigger (in keeping with the tome of the comment).
Envy you all that storage, it must make crafting so much easier when you don't have to go rooting through cupboards.
Happy WOYWW.

Neet said...

This "wee tidy up" as you called it of mine is not being very successful. Seeing yours I wonder if you can pop over after lunch and get me sorted LOL.
Love what you have done - some great ideas there - if only I had the wall space.

Hugs, Neet xx

Caatje said...

I wish we would do a woyww where everybody would show their craft rooms as extensively as you did today. I love it. By the way: messy? I think not! ;-) Thanks for the tour.

Peggy Cain said...

great work space!Have a fun WOYWW.

SueH said...

Oh wow May, that’s some craft room you have there!

I would really love to revamp my room but keep putting it off until I can save a few pennies to finance it. I love some of your storage solutions, especially for your punches, mine are just thrown into a box and I can never find the one I’m looking for.

Happy Crafting!

Deb said...

BJ said...

Thanks for the note about the dreaded word thingy, I think I have removed it now! I tried to click on your web page from your blog profile but it wasn't found, think perhaps you missed the "a" from happy out of it.
Love the big words on your walls - especially "faith". BJ

Mary Pat Siehl said...

Danielle said...

I love Tot's message, but I do envy how tidy your room is, and so organised. I start of organised but then it gradually slides into disaster again. Thank you for your visit today and your lovely comments. xx Maggie #17

fairyrocks said...

Wonderful on the tidy up!! Love all your hanging ideas. Thanks for sharing, Keep smiling and creating

JoZart said...

Great space May with lots of great storage and display solutions. We all seem to stamp our own personalities on our crafting areas too and the sign with the Wizard of Oz quote is fun.
Thanks for popping by my blog too..

Elizabeth said...

Hello May, love your guided tour of your craft room which looks as big as mine :) You have an impressive collection of punches - I'm building my collection because I've only really begun to appreciate what you can do with them, especially the flower ones. Up until a few weeks ago I only had one MS border punch but I now have another one paid for with loyalty points at my local craft shop - bringing the grand total to two! Thanks for your earlier comment - there was no question about it, a seat/snoozing area had to be factored in when designing the craft room. Tomorrow is her adoption date so, given that we had to guess how old she was when we got her, she is now quite elderly at about 12/13 years old and so has to be pampered. Hope you are having a great Wednesday and that the week will be happily creative for you. Elizabeth x #11

Laura said...

Uber organised room there May.
I'm loving the wizard of oz sign :)

ScrappnBee said...

OK, I think I have the horrid word thingy off. Now I can go back to actually looking at your photos of all that yummy storage you have. Wow, but you are so organised. I also love the fact that all your boxes and storage match with the black and white stripes.

Yours Artfully said...

You have to be the queen of organising stash. I love how you store your punch....very clever.

BetteK said...

Really loved seeing all your photo's - yes, your walls are very different to mine but I work in the conservatory just as soon as it is warm enough to do so (and it was today with a little bit of help from the fan heater!!!) I like to tidy everything away again after I have finished crafting for a while and all I have hanging on that very blank wall is a huge clock and I do love the bareness of it! Happy WOYWWing! Love Debbie #59 xXx

Linda said...

You have a great space, so many fun things to look at and play with. :) Linda #92

Sam said...

Flippin' 'eck May!! When can I move in? Dead jealous of all your wall storage - my walls are sloping (ceilings) so I cannot have stuff on the walls!
P.S. I haven't forgotten your Prague Guide but everytime I think of sending it I think of something else which I then have to find! Need more time but work gets in the way!

Tracey Potter said...

That's Stampers heaven May, such a beautiful, well stocked space, I love how you have utilized all the walls.

Susan ~ Killam Creative said...

Nice, clean, ready for the next big thing! I have the same white Making Memories wall shelf (with all the Glimmer Mist) but I don't have those awesome jars along the bottom. I'm having serious organization envy right now! :)

Cheers,
Susan #113-ish

VonnyK said...

Do you do house calls, my room is in dire need of your organising :)
You have so much but all so neat.
Love that Dear Dorothy sign.
I might take your advice re the cutter and look at a guillotine, if the cards sell.
Have a great week.

Kathryn said...

OH May!
I just showed DH your punch holders (hint hint)and his comment was "Knock yourself out, Honey, just remember you live in an earthquake area." HA!!!!! Excuses, excuses! I don't have as many punches as you but one or two towel bars would free up a few drawers, for other things (yet to be had??) Thanks for the tour, inspiration and your comments today!
Hugs!!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I'm having a terrible time getting Blogger to cooperate with me. Sorry I'm so late getting here. I love the room you have. Those boxes are adorable and I love that you use every inch of space you have. Great use of your space, and I can see why hubby might want to turn a deaf ear. After all, you do so well with what you have (grin).

cotnob said...

Hi May
I just love looking at other people's craft rooms, it never ceases to amaze me how much stash we all collect, my husband thinks we should list mine on the house contents insurance under valuable items because it would never me covered under the normal amount!
Your space looks great.
