Getting Organized - my craft room

This is where I go when I want to get crafty and put on my girly music. We rent a two bedroom apartment right now, so I am honored that my husband let me have the second bedroom (mostly) to myself. I can't paint the walls but I did hang up a couple of bulletin boards for inspiration. I also put up some IKEA Bygel rails for the whale punches. Don't look at those plastic carts on the right, that's my work in progress area.
I use regular old plastic filing trays to hold my cardstock and DSP in an old TV stand. The letter trays for the cardstock and legal width trays for the DSP. On top of this is my paper cutter, scrap bin and Simply Scored.
I couldn't stay organized without my Expedit bookcase from IKEA. I love all the cubbies. The clear organizers inside are from Rubbermaid and are called Shelf Savers.
I got the white magazine files, called KASSETT at IKEA too and added some round tags. The white photo boxes are from Michael's and the two clear card holder boxes are from Stampin' Up! although I have seen similar ones at Oriental Trading.
I found these yellow 10 slot organizers in Michael's jewelry section. Low and behold, 10 colors to a family...
and the sponge daubers fit perfectly! I bought one for each color family!
