My shop has grown as I've made more product for it--especially in the last year. Over the summer, I had a lot of time to get creative, and I also utilized my Thanksgiving and Winter breaks as well. Now I have over 450 items listed. For all that, however, the physical space my shop makes up isn't large. Right now it occupies two main containers.
|This one's about a foot in height.|
|This one is maybe three feet?|
|This drawer has gift cards I've made.|
|This drawer has most of my holiday cards, as well as photo cards.|
|I use Post-It Notes to separate sections easily. It takes a little bit of digging|
when I make a sale, but I don't mind.
Of course, I have to have supplies to make all of this product, and I keep that all very organized, too. Mom graciously let's me use her craft room to store my things and make cards, so I try to keep the mess as small as possible.
|I manage to keep everything contained in this.|
|The large bottom drawer holds cards, raffia, blank tags, and some photos.|
|Of course there's a drawer for stamping stuff. All that's|
left from the days when I had TONS of stamps.
|This was a gift from a coworker when I worked at|
Stamp Mania in high school. I still use it on the back of
cards I make.
|The Mary Engelbreit calendar makes for some darling cards.|
|Adhesives and Modge Podge and scissors, oh my!|
|Scrap paper, old road atlases, and a really cute craft book Mom bought me.|
| Mom's cutting table, scene of a lot of card-making. The shoebox is where|
I keep new product waiting to be listed.
