Organizing my craft items

So, I don't have a craft room, I have a craft closet.  I know that sounds funny, but it's perfect for what I need. The master bedroom is what we made into a "Great Room."  It has my sister's collection of books (in two six foot shelves and two four foot shelves),  a TV (on a Lazy Susan I got from IKEA to watch wherever I am) and the computer.  I converted the closet in the master room to hold all my crafting needs.  
I wanted to share with you how I organize my crafting supplies.  
First up is a pants hangar I use to store ribbon.
Next, are clear shoe organizers that I use to hold all of my Stampin' Up! punches.  I am a punch fiend.
I use a double sided clear jewelry organizer, on one side, I have my smaller punches.
On the other side, I hold smaller supplies to make it easier to get to.

For all my sponges and Sponge Daubers, I labeled a craft organizer and hold them all together.
I am also a Font fiend, I use two other craft organizers and have all the letters and numbers alphabetically and in order so they are ready to use.
 On my table, I have a riser I got from my sister and I store the Simply Scoring tool and my cutters underneath and take them out when I need them, then they go back underneath as I work on the tabletop. On my table, I also have my really old circle cutter and my embossing tool holder.
I use the Clear Mount Stamp Cases with a magnetic sheet to hold my Stampin' Up!  Framelits and my Spellbinders.  Then, I write on the spine of them so I know which is which.
Just to let you know, I will not thrown ANY paper away.
I keep all of my Stampin' Up! scraps categorized by Color Family in alphabetical order.  Each color is kept individually in labeled envelopes.
For my other paper scraps, I keep them in separate paper pocket holders, one for patterned paper and one for solid colors.
For my 12"X12" paper, I have them in plastic paper holders.
I also keep my 8-1/2"X11" scrap booking 
in this nifty holder.
This is what it looks like inside.  I have the paper categorized by subject to make it easy to find when I am working on a certain scrap book.
I know, I'm obsessed.
I got a rack to hold my 8-1/2"X11" paper from a scrapbook store that was going out of business.
 I keep all of my embossing folders in a small photo album, so they are easily accessible next to my Big Shot.
Inside, I have a sample of a piece of paper embossed right next to the Embossing folder.
To keep all of my crafting ideas organized, I keep them in sheet protectors on a paper towel holder and binder rings, an idea that was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest.  It makes it easier to find ideas instead of being in a binder on a shelf.  I even categorize them (Techniques, 3-D, Fun Folds, Gift Card Holders, and Moving Cards).  I even hold a sample of the idea in the sheet protector too.  I blogged about it in this previous post.
