Mission Organization

Greetings once again from the Rubber Room!

A few weeks ago, I asked a group of friends, what are their main/basic supplies they have on their work table/scrap area. I got a lot of responses. Thank you everyone who responded to my question.
I had a dual purpose in asking this question.
1. With the New Year upon us, its appears to me all my friends are starting to clean up and reorganize their craft room/area, I thought it would be helpful to all of them by starting off with the basics. See if you have all of these items close by.
2. The other reason I asked, was to help me organize my little rolling cart. Not sure if you all know that I have two 2 year twins that come "home" every Thursday through Sunday. I share my rubber room with them. So, when they are sleeping, I work out in the livingroom on my various projects. But when they return to their mother, I can move back to the rubber room and continue on with my projects. I didn't want to have to duplicate (even though I could) for both areas. I made up this little rolling cart and it moves really easily from one place to another. I have taken pictures of my little cart and the basic tools I use a lot and would like to share. But first here is the list (in no particular order) of the items everyone thought were important to have readily available.
Basic Supply and Tools
12" trimmer with replacement blades
Acrylic Blocks
Tombow, ATG Gun, etc
Liquid Glass
Glue Dots
Pop Dots
Paper Piercer and Mat
Double Scrubber
Spray Bottle Stamp Cleaner
Bone Folder
Hole Punch
Red Eye Pen
Eyelet Tool Kit (in my case its my Click It)
X-acto Knife and blades
Sand Paper and block
Stickie Notes
My Legacy Writer Pens
Stapler and staples
Write and Rub Pen
Embossing Tool
Embossing Pen
Blending Pens

Having this little trolley helps me stay even more organized than before. And it helps keep my work area clutter free (somewhat). You all know that adage...(I hear my mother's words) "Everything has a place, and everything belongs in that place...(so on and so forth!)LOL

This is only part of what occupied my weekend. The twins developed "pink eye" and I told my son not to bring them here. Pink eye is too highly contagious and they need to keep it confined. The twin's mother wasn't too pleased, but oh well!

I worked on getting the Rubber Room a bit more organized. Nothing like starting off the New Year, with a new perspective. Cleaning and reorganizing always helps the creative juices to flow. I don't know about you, but I have a hard time being creative when there is so much clutter around. So, that is what I did this weekend. I will post some pics of what I've done in the Rubber Room in the next few days. So stay tuned.

So, until next time, thank you for taking the time to come visit my little Rubber Room!
Inky Hugs,
