My Scraproom / Area!

I have been wanting to post these photos of my scraproom for quite some time now, and have finally gotten round to it. Hope you enjoy the tour of my favourite place in the house, well it's one of the places I spend the most time anyway!! Why don't you grab a cup of tea or coffee before we get started, this is going to be quite a long post!

This is the view taken from the doorway between our formal and family lounge. My scrap area is in the family lounge, and it is the room we are all always in. We have a t.v. in there, as well as the boys Playstation, and my husbands computer stand is on the opposite wall to my scrap desk, so we all have our little space. The boys also have a desk in the one corner where they sit and do their homework and colour in etc. There is Jamie lying on the couch having his bottle of tea watching Barney!

This is a photo of my scrap desk. I had it specifically made when we moved into the house. I made the desk quite high, because I stand and scrapbook, would probably explain the sore back I have at the moment!! The top two drawers on either side are a bit thinner than the others. Everything that I need is right at hand, I love this set up and it works perfectly for me!

This the right hand side of my desk. I like to have some things out in the open so I can see them, so I remember to use them. I have my p.p. scraps right on my desk, cause I try and use them often, especially when cardmaking. I also sew of my pages all the time, and there is my favourite gadget, my Cuttlebug. Don't forget the very important cup of tea!!

These 2 bookshelves stand on the right hand side of my desk, and also house lots of stuff!! All my magazines are on the one bookshelf, my CK mags are read constantly. I also keep lots of small goodies in the 3 caddies on one shelf, and my pp and other A4 sized paper in on the other shelf. Jamie also has one shelf for all his books!

The things I use less often are stored in these drawers. I keep my material scraps, chipboard pieces that I use as templates, and my MM tag maker and label maker in them. I bought them from road side vendor, and they have come in very handy!

I like to display my scrapbook pages for a few days before I put them in albums!

My wood mounted stamps are kept in my top left drawer. I am going to run out of space in this drawer soon!

My Hero Arts stamps, foam stamps and Nestabilities are kept in the next drawer. Also running out of space here!

All my chipboard, and Jamie's cute little fingers!! You will see in the next couple of photos that I use the blue mushroom containers a lot. They have solved a lot of my storage problems, and are free with my mushrooms, which is a bonus!

My flower drawer, top right hand drawer. I use flowers all the time, so definitely need to buy more flowers!

My "bling" drawer. I always look in here when making cards!

Lots of different stuff in this drawer. And as you can see it is the perfect height for Jamie. Bit of a nightmare keeping him out of my drawers. Hopefully the novelty will wear off soon. LOL!!

And my final photo, my ribbon & cotton drawer. Don't know if you can tell, but my blue ribbon is overflowing it's container, and not too much in the others. Quite the indication that I have 3 sons & 1 husband. Nearly no pink ribbon!!!

Hope you have enjoyed the tour of my scrap area. Would appreciate any comments or suggestions on my space?!?

Hugs, Rene'
