Stamp Chest

Hello!! Happy Monday!! I have a feeling it's gonna be a busy week! I've already got a bunch of to-do's piling up along with the basic everyday to-do's!! :D

On the A Muse Addicts Message Board, one of the general stamp talk questions that has been posted is "How do you store your A Muse stamps?" I thought I'd go ahead and post a couple of pics of this on my blog and then post a link so I'm not uploading pictures to the forum. This way you can see too!!


I'm so excited about this chest!! I picked it up at Lowe's around Christmas time for about $70 and it's just perfect (for now!) I think it's a replica of an old antique tool box. It's meant for tools, but looks way too nice for that IMO!! It has 6 smaller drawers and 3 big long larger drawers and the depth of each drawer is just perfect for storing one layer of stamps. Plus, the top lid flips up so I store some of my notecards (4-bar), PLP's, Twinkle Stickers, Clear stamps, and misc. goodies in there. I do store a few other stamps that aren't A Muse in there too, but for the most part it's my A Muse storage. It's getting pretty full, so I'm not sure what I'm gonna do at that point, but for now it's good. I used to store my A Muse stamps in the plastic containers you get from Stampin' Up! but it drove me crazy hunting for that one stamp I needed. This way, I can just pull open a couple drawers and easily find what I need.



I hope you all have a fabulous week!!!

That is an awesome A Muse storage solution. I don't have near that many, yet, so I am also very jealous of your collection.

So cool Rhonda!! Thank you so much for sharing this...it's very beautiful! Since I'm just starting getting my space organized, I'm looking for as many ideas as possible for how people store their "stuff". I love how those drawers are just the right height for 1 stamp high. Oh...I just LOVE IT!!

hi, thanks for posting the box. I am getting ready to organize my space and am researching storage. About how many stamps does it hold? and what are the measurements? Do you have a model or manufacturer name. I am not near a loews but maybe I can order it on line. Thanks for your time.
