The New & Improved Stamping Studio!!!

Once upon a time it was just a bare room.
This was where Alex slept while she was here.
After weeks of waiting, our household goods finally arrived. And EVERYTHING got pretty much dumped into my room!!! This picture makes me want to cry - seriously! Boxes up to the ceiling and yes, that's my table on top of boxes! After all the other rooms got unpacked I finally got to do this one....by taking things out, just to be able to move around! And although I did eventually get it unpacked, I never did get it decorated and before I knew it, it was a hot mess again...
See???
Ugh! Things all over the place and practically falling off the shelves!
Every flat surface holding piles of stuff!
I got this huge shipment of flowers in, but didn't have anywhere to put them!
I had gone shopping with Cassy a few weeks ago, and discovered this gorgeous trunk! I had one before (over 21 years old!) that had traveled around the world and back with me and was falling apart. This is it's gorgeous replacement!
Change is good!
Perhaps if I keep saying it, I'll learn to believe it, lol!
AND I got a great deal on it!!!
My new Mother Hen.
I found this at the candy store we went to. She had delicious chocolate eggs up her plump chicken butt! I have no idea why, but just seeing her always makes me smile!! I'm not normally a stuffed animal person at all, but she's a treasure!!!

And now...
After a full week of work, it's finally all put together to my satisfaction!
Making use of all my gorgeous new tins! And my vanity table is FINALLY usable!
All my ribbon is IN the ribbon rack, instead of falling off the top, lol! And organized by type and color. {bliss} I also have all my flowers in one place and used the new daisy and sunflower tins I picked up. You can click to enlarge the photo!

Update on ribbon holder:
