Studio Tour with Ali Edwards

Hello to all my fellow craft storage enthusiast!!  Hazel here and today we are visiting Ali Edwards. I’m SURE you all know who she is but for those wondering – she is a designer, blogger, author, and mother of two. She has written four books about scrapbooking, authored a popular monthly column for Creating Keepsakes magazine, conducted workshops around the country, internationally, and online, and currently designs digital scrapbooking products for Designer Digitals and stamps for Technique Tuesday. Now for Ali’s room.  She says that her goal is to make stuff and that she doesn’t want to spend a lot of time organizing.  For her stash she wants a selection but not excess.  Sound like a good idea to me.

The two Varde tables from Ikea are back to back. They are the perfect height as Ali likes to work standing up. The tops are nice and big which means that some supplies can go on top and the rest goes in drawers or in baskets below. IMG_6251
Along both walls are Ikea Expedit shelves on wheels. These are awesome on their own but having them on wheels makes them that much more awesome. AE_shelves-500x333
I just love the pull-out Kvissle Letter Trays from Ikea. They are used to store the current kits. Best part is, you can pull the whole tray out and move it to the work table and the move it back when done. IMG_6208
OK. This is my favorite!! Inside the doors of this locker  you’ll find inks, paints, ribbons, sewing supplies, etc. Most of these things Ali doesn’t use every time she makes something. Out of sight but still on hand. IMG_6186
On the opposite side of the room from the lockers, right next to the windows, are the computer desks.  I love the sunshine pouring through the windows and the “interactiveness” of working together. IMG_6214
That’s it from me. I hope you have enjoyed Ali’s studio with me.  Please hop over to her blog to read the rest and while there, leave some comments to let her know that we appreciate her sharing with us. Have fun and craft on.
Hazel
