My Scrap Space!

I have been working on reorganizing my scrap space for some time now. There are still a few tweaks I need to make but for the most part I am thrilled with how everything has come together.

The room is actually the sitting room off of our master bedroom. It's a nice size room with a HUGE window at the far end for lots of natural light. I share the space with Darian and Brandon - hey kids need a space to do crafts too ya know!

This is the view as you walk into the room from the master bedroom (don't mind my pretty kitty Sasha - she didn't want to get out of the way for my pics! LOL):


On the left side of the room is the boys' craft area hence the brightly colored floor tiles (gotta try to spare my carpet from their creative rages). The table and chairs and red/blue storage units are all from The Land of Nod (LOVE that stuff!). In the very far corner you can see a map chest that I got from Home Decorator's - I keep all of my Stampin' Up! sets in there along with lots of other stamping supplies:


Here's a view from the opposite side of the room. Somebody made that storage unit for us and the colored bins are from Target. The cool name drawings were a present from the boys' Mimi - we got them last year during our annual Ocean City family vacation.


On the right side of the room is my craft space ... ahhhhhh! I spent most of the winter collecting those Store in Style cubes from Michael's and Target - I bought one or two every time I had a coupon or they were on sale! They house ALL of my embellishments from glitter to rub-ons and chipboard. LOVE them! You can also see my new craft table from Grandin Road. This was a labor of love - I did a fulfillment order for my hubby's work to earn some extra cash. I stuffed 15,000 CD cases with paper inserts to get that thing but it was worth every paper cut and broken nail! I have become a stand up scrapper so the height works great and the position right by all my embellishments is just perfect! Oh and there's that silly kitty Sasha again LOL:


Close up view of one side of my craft table - GREAT place to store stuff like stamps, ribbons, etc. This side is pretty much full but I still have lots of room on the other side to fill up (better get shoppin' huh?):


Close up view of my Store in Style cubes. LOTS of goodies in there! And that's a wrapping center on the left from The Container Store - I love to make presents look pretty too!


Here is a view of my desk area - home to my brand new gorgeous iMac. Seriously this computer ROCKS! My hubby bought it for me and I love it to pieces:


A WHOLE lotta Stampin' Up! cardstock - you could say I'm just a little obsessed. :)



What every scrapper NEEDS: the Scotch ATG 714 tape gun and jelly beans (or substitute the sweet of your choice). I usually have a coke in there with me too but I moved it out of the room for the pics - nothing like a caffiene and sugar high to get the creative juices flowin'.


And finally I thought I would just throw in a pic of a few cards I am making for Darian's preschool teachers to go along with their end of year thank you gifts (lighting is lousy on this one and I'm too lazy to go edit it - sorry!):

That is a seriously impressive space! So well thought out and inviting. Can't wait to finish tidying up mine - might have to add some of your storage ideas! Thanks for the peek.

WOW, I love that you have that huge window, nothing like natural light. Then again I tend to scrap into the wee hours of the morning, not sure I would benefit from that. Love all the storage space you have. Be honest, is the space always that neat?

Kelly - let's just say I TRY to keep it that neat! ;)

Love your space! And funny, my scrap space is also the bonus room off my master... of course mine isn't as wonderful as yours. And so clean! Lucky and talented girl you are!

DH here...

Did you forget the countless hours I spent putting the furniture together or the number of pulled and sore muscles moving the stuff around?

All done out of love...
