Wow! I finally managed to clean up my studio after working on my how-to book for so many months. I really didn't think it would be possible to have my clean studio back. I'm so happy now.
My windows are pretty much covered all the time because UV rays are harmful to paper. My studio is never too humid or too dry. We don't have pets anymore, but even when we did, pets were never allowed in the studio. It's a big no no for me. I have work tables and chairs, many shelves and storage, piles of books, art works, frames, a paper trimmer, a mat cutter, a handheld vacuum cleaner, a dry mop, and of course lots and lots of paper.
My sweet dear father-in-law made these wooden shelves for me like 10 years ago. I separate acid free paper and non acid free paper. I store my acid free paper in archival storage boxes(you see those grey boxes?). I have a box for white papers, and a box for color papers. I also divide papers to big, medium and small sizes, and store them separately.
I sort papers with similar hues.
On my work table, I have many cutting mats in different sizes. I have a desk organizer. I also have a tool bag, so that I can carry my tools to some place else.
On the other side of my studio, I have a closet full of more stuff, photo equipment, shipping materials, and files. I even have an entertainment system. I'm so lucky to have my own space to do what I love to do. If you would like to try paper craft, you wouldn't need a studio like mine. A dining table, a cutting mat, a small tool bag, and a small paper storage can give you a good start.
