Cleaning up & some stamps for sale

Hey there, friends!

Well, I had a very productive weekend!

I spent most of my free time reorganizing/purging/cleaning my craft area – 
and I even did a little painting, too.  :)
I thought I’d share some photos with you…

Now, a year and a half ago, I painted two walls in my basement corner craft area aqua mist.
Well, this weekend, I decided to add some aqua mist stripes to the wall that leads into my area.

What do you think?
I totally love it!

Here's my space. 
We have two tables set up: one for me that faces out into the room and one for my daughter, Sage.
It's suppose to be for her to craft, but she uses it more for playing with her Lego Friends.
I don't mind though... it's still a nice way to spend time together.

So here's my work area.
I have my sewing machine at the one end.

Here's another view.
I keep my stamps in baskets in front of me.
I have a basket for PTI, one for Reverse Confetti and one for all my other stamps. 

I have a caddy for my tools, paintbrushes and pencils, etc.
Behind that, I have my 12x12 patterned paper, sorted by manufacturer.

Then, I have my PTI cardstock, sorted by colour.
On my four-tiered rotating shelf, I keep my smaller tools, twine, embossing powder and my PTI inks.

This is my diecutting station, where I keep my smaller trimmer, my ATG gun and my Big Shot.
On the shelf behind that, I have my impression plates, punches & embossing folders.
Below, I have my 6x6 paper pads, sorted by manufacturer and my photos that are waiting to be scrapbooked.

Oh, and I came home one day to find this old book holder/display on my front porch. 
My husband had found it in their barn and brought it home for Sage to use for her books.
She said she didn't want it, so I claimed it for my space.
I'm using it to store embellishments.

Here are some close-ups of my shelves.

I was super excited to get all of my Bazzill 12x12 cardstock organized by colour!

Oh, and before you go, a purge means that I have some stamps & dies to get rid of.
