No, I haven't forgot about this blog...just been busy...any extra time I have has been going towards finishing swaps for CKU. I'm finishing up my last one this week!! Woo-hoo, it's good to be almost done!! Anyways, since I've been MIA I figure you deserve a "meaty" post....so I'm gonna show you where I scrapbook. Before we sold our house I had an awesome craft room/office that I loved, but once we moved into apartments finding a spot to create has been ....um...interesting. So here's my current spot...
squished in the hallway between what is supposed to be a coat closet & the guest bathroom. I am SO thankful for that coat closet though....since now it's a SB closet LOL. I store all my ppr in here (fyi: my patterned ppr is a mess & totally out of order now)...I keep patterned ppr by manufacturer stored horizontally on a shelf & solid color cardstock is stored in the 12 x 12 vertical storage ppr holder thingy. In that pink crate I keep my alpha stickers...divided by color.
Here's what's on the shelves above my workspace. Top shelf: unmounted rubber & clear acrylic stamps, Chipboard letters, Photos, Tools. Bottom shelf: Ribbon, Buttons, SU! Ink Spots, Ppr Frills. On my desktop I keep my AMM Tote-Ally with all my most used tools & adhesives. I just deconstructed my bulletin board before I took this pic....it was covered & I mean covered with stuff.....products I wanted to use, quotes, pix, etc.....I needed a fresh start so down it came & now it's all cleared off & ready to be filled up again.
Now, where to put my feet, LOL. There isn't much space for them. I have a great little cart I got at Target that my MM paper trimmer sits on. I recently cleaned out the cart from what it was holding & so now it holds my big punches, my bling & acrylic blocks, and misc frequently used stuff. I have 8.5" x11" storage containers from a previous life (not my previous life LOL...they were previously used for something else) that currently hold theme stuff. I wish they were 12 x 12 since that would be more convenient to fit SB stuff in, but a girl's gotta use what she's got (at least until DH doesn't care so much that I am constantly "improving" my storage solutions). There's also a few transportable containers (12 x 12) were I keep current projects I'm working on & my newest products.
Ok, now the part that my DH just loves...notice the sarcasms in my voice....the flowers & paint....conveniently stored above one of his file cabinets in his office (which is right next to the SB closet) just in case he wants to embellish some of his paperwork LOL.
Then in his office he has a walk in closet....which holds, you guessed it, more SB stuff. It's pretty much the stuff I don't' use regularly and is a mess & a half.
Ok, that's my space in a nut shell. (PS - you can click on the pix for a larger view)
I'd love to see yours....so link me some pix of where you scrap!
