I thought I would share a couple of photos of my work space at home.
Below is a picture of me sitting at my beading table.
I use this table exclusively to bead. Behind me are two storage units I purchased when I first started. I thought I would NEVER fill them! Hah!
A couple of years ago I bought the white storage units on the left. They were originally designed for scrapbook materials, but you can purchase them with large and small trays to hold beads.
They are fabulous! Now I have much more visibility of what I own, and much more storage space. Below is a picture of a couple of the drawers pulled out to show how the inserts work. These drawers are shallow, some of my others are deeper for larger beads/pendants. The biggest advantage is that have a much better idea of what I have - I'm not losing things in big boxes or bags.
This next picture is of the area I use to do my altered art work. I cut, glue, solder and sand here.
The last picture is of my desk with my computer. This is where I spend most of my time. My scanner is here and I can scan cross stitch covers, update my inventory, process orders etc. I also have a digital scale attached directly to my computer to compute my postage for me.
This desks wraps around and there is another identical unit with my husband's computer and work area. We have a laser printer and color photo printer set between us to share. You'll notice my bead table also has a laptop on it. We have the laptop on wireless network/internet so it can be used anywhere in the house. I use it daily at my bead table.
All of the photos are located in one room - our office in our basement. Hope you enjoyed seeing where I work. Please fee free to comment or ask questions.
I have a whole other part of the house used for storage for cross stitch inventory, shipping materials etc. However it was WAY too messy for photos. Some day...
