As you can see from my vignette on top of my shelving unit, I also love and collect Amish items as well as display some of my quilting cross stitch. At one time earlier in my life, I lived among the Amish of Pennsylvania and came to love and respect them greatly.
- Desk - found at a discount warehouse type place in white to match the rest of the furniture. I am not showing much of it here in this photo as it is quite a mess
- Bookcase - This is from IKEA and I am using it to hold boxes from Ikea for storage of stamp sets according to category (such as masculine, floral, etc.) You will also see I have white baskets I found at Michaels that are labeled with tag. I also store patterned paper here. The little chest in the room holds cross stitch supplies and you can see the vignette on top of the bookcase.
- Rolling Drawer Cabinets are also from Ikea and store some card stock, but mostly supplies like punches, sequins, etc.
- Slotted Shelving - from Michaels, collecting one at a time as they went on sale. These are used to separate my colored card stock according to color family.
You can also see that I use old CD racks for various stamp sets that are not within a category that I have in the IKEA boxes. I also place an new stamp sets here so I will be more likely to use them.
My philosophy is that I want to keep as many supplies in plain sight (out) in order to quickly find and use them.
