Kick-off challenge - Shopping Our Stash

Welcome to the Kick-Off Challenge for the new Shopping Our Stash Challenge Blog! We thought the best way to start the ball rolling is to host a virtual "open house" where we share a look at our crafty spaces and stashes! It's always fun to see behind the scenes where we spend so much of our time and money! 

So here is a sneak peak of my craft desk--on the edge you can see that I use those plastic kid toy containers to store my copics, as well as a couple of shoe boxes in the background filled with scraps (that I fully intend to use...soon...LOL!)  In the background there are my storage drawers from Costco that I love.  They hold my 12x12 card stock and DP as well as wood mounted stamps.

Next Wednesday I'll have a couple more photos for you of how I store the bulk of my card stock as well as ribbon.

During the next two weeks, from May 10 to May 23, we are asking you to join in our open house by posting a pic or two or ten of your craft table, space, maybe just a peek at your stamps, whatever you wish and link your post back to the SOS blog, the link up thru the Blue Froggy! A random winner will be drawn to receive their choice of a crinkled seam binding ribbon bundle from Prairie Bird Boutique! plus all entries will be entered into a drawing for the May prize as well.

Be sure to stop by the SOS Crew blogs...we have some pretty amazing stashes of supplies amongst our design team! 


  1. Oh...can you do a close up of those storage drawers in the background? Did you mean the ones with the little handles...those are from Costco? I am redoing my studio and want some sort of cool paper storage for my cardstock. Look forward to more from the group! :-)

  2. I still think your space is wonderful! I'm always looking for less space-consuming ways to store Copics. I never thought to just buy a toy! Ha!!

  3. My poor computer is all but crowded off my desk most of the time!

  4. Looks great Kris, such a great challenge idea!!!

    I can't wait to play along!

  5. Congrats on being part of the new design team.

  6. Ah Kristina, what a familiar sight..great job on the latest cards!
