After a release, I always have a lot of cleaning up and reorganizing to do to prepare for the next month. I thought it might be kind of fun just to show you a few little shots from around the studio after a release is over…
Here is my work station where I do all my stamping. To get ready for a release, I always put the new products in this sock organizer box I found at Target. It has three long nooks that work perfectly for holding the new cardstocks, ribbons, inks and other toys. Since we were debuting the embossing powders this month, I also had my heat gun and Versamark pad in there. It made it easy to incorporate all of the new things in my projects, since it was all right there, waiting to be used. I will be getting a shipment all of NEXT month's things hopefully next week. The current contents of this box will get filed away into the appropriate locations and the October products will take their place! Such a fun cycle! I also keep a stack of inspirational magazines & books close by. This month I had out several of my favorite "gift-giving" books. They really helped me to brainstorm all of the gift ideas that I incorporated into my holiday based posts in September.
I have a large area of open counter space next to where I keep my photo studio set up. This is where I like to set all of my recent projects after completion. It is kind of nice to just look at everything for a week or so after the release, since I put so much work into everything. Kind of leaves me with a sense of accomplishment, you know?
David and I are almost done with our big remodel of the new studio. Sometime after the cruise I should be able to give you a little tour around the new place. It is coming together fabulously! Hope you enjoyed this little peek into my post-release world.
