Newly organized work in progress

I always like seeing how others organize their stamping area. With the addition of my two new toys for Christmas I need to expand mine. I thought I would share my area with you today.
I used to just have the shelves on the wall and the desk. I added my sewing cabinet, that used to be in another room. It now houses my sewing machine, Cuttlebug and Cricut (THANKS SANTA!).

I also brought in the book case from another room. It houses all my 12x12 papers, photo albums, scrapbooks, alterable items, old catalogs, and several boxes of cards. The drawer at the bottom has most of my retired stamp sets. Some of my favorite retired sets are still on the wall shelves. I want to put the bookcase back where it came from in the house and replace it with a tall closed utility cabinet after the first of the year. I need to be able to lock it up so the kids don't pull everything down. (my DS already broke an ornament when he pulled the box down today. I also want to get clear bins to put on the shelves. I want it all to match and be able to see the contents. The matching just gives me a calm feeling that things are organized.
I also need another small file cabinet to hold my business type supplies. The lower cabinet next to my desk is actually a file cabinet. All of the color families are in hanging files in the bottom drawer. The top drawer has neutrals and a few other items like transparencies and such. My wheels, embelishments, EP powders, cutting tools, adhesives and such are all in the drawers on top of the file cabinet.

My favorite part of my area is my punch wall. I used curtain rods. I am ready for another rod. These are full and I have 6 more punches to complete my SU! collection. Actually I have 7 to get now that they came out with a large star punch for sale starting in Jan. I keep my scrap paper in the drawers below my punches. I am thinking of changing this set up and sorting them into bagies in the file drawers.
