I spent all weekend getting my dining room/stamp table to look like the first picture! I stamp on a pad of newsprint, and keep my table pads on to protect my dining room table surface. Recently got the All My Memories tote and I really like it for my most used tools - and it spins, so cool! You can also see my stamp scrubber, baby wipes and paint can for trash, and my new tonic trimmer (thank you Jennifer McGuire for the retake on thinking inking RAK!)The 2nd photo is after making just 2 Christmas cards! Stamping is a dirty sport! But for once, I was a good girl and cleaned up my mess. My table looks like “before” again. I'm tryin' hard to keep it neat for Stamptoberfest!
