Happy Hump Day!

So did I leave you wondering how my room turned out? :) Here's another pic of the MESS! Sadly, I can't blame anyone else because this is all my junk *ergghh* stuff. :)
This is just one section, imagine 3 out of the 4 corners looking like this AND the closet?? I couldn't walk in or get anything in OR out.) Sad, I know! Mark said I need an CA program (Crafters Anonymous) LMAO!
Here's Mark working away, BTW... Repainting over dark colors STINKS!!!!! Mark had to prime it 3 times to get rid of the dark red paint. Boyeee, he was not a happy camper. *love you honey!

Finally, painting is done and tape is being removed!Now it's time to begin organizing or in my case REorganizing

Yes, I parted with 3 boxes full of goodies! Though it broke my heart to say goodbye, I'm happy to say that our local Nursing home LOVED everything. :)

Slowly coming along....

Here's my room! TA-DA!

Funny, how I've never really paid attention to the color Orange until my middle child Ian came along. He LOVES the color Orange and insists everything he wears has some kind of Orange color. I guess it grew on me. LOL
I love my main work station, everything is within reach! Though I'm already contemplating on new ideas and possibly repainting the drawers to either white or brown. What do you think? I love suggestions!

My paper section, this is some of the card stock I have the rest I had to pack into boxes. I still have 2 more wire racks in the basement unfortunately, I don't have the space for them up here. Yes, have 2 clip it up's, that was the nice part of working at a small stamp store. Whatever the owner didn't carry he let us use his wholesale account to order for ourselves.

The far side of the pic has by Bazzill Bling Card Stock. I picked up the packs of 50 at 50% off a few years ago through I LOVE my deals! The other side (pic above) contains my metallic card stock line, I order these from and Great prices and in BULK! This is what I use the most for my invitations.

My cutting table has a shelf with all my trimmers while my industrial cutter and my Sizzix Big Shot Express. Mark also made me French Board that coordinates beautifully!

My Copic collection, some Copic refills any my Marvy & Kodomo markers.

My dad made me the acrylic rests, I designed it so it holds the original Copic boxes but the markers are a slight angle for easy reading and it has a nice size lip at the bottom to hold my currently used ink pads and stamps.

Some of my fav pics.

Some more of my favorite things.
I'm still not done! Is anyone really ever done? I just ordered a dust cover for my Cricut Expression and I'm having some vinyl words done for my walls. I'll have to retake pics once they've arrived and Mark puts them up for me. :)
It's an addiction I swear! I still have SOO much stuff in the basement but at least the frequently used things are up here. I need to take a better picture of the closet and then I'll post it up also.

Hope you enjoyed my little Orange studio! Ian LOVES it but Miranda is upset because it's a "Girls room" and it should've been Pink (her favorite color) LOL

Your room looks great! You do have a lot of stuff don't you? hehe I haven't finished my room yet (I don't have a hubby to help out! LOL) but I hope to finish it soon and I will post after pics as well. It was great to see your room and the orange makes the room so warm and inviting. :) I never thought of orange either but the warmth can be felt through the internet! Thanks for sharing!

Wow! Congrats on the transformation. It's beautiful! Did you share this with the gals over in the sbroom group? If so, I am so sorry I missed it. If not, I encourage you to post it with a link to your blog. It's just too awesome and should be shared. :-)
