My Scrap Space

Sorry for my lack of postings as of late but life has gotten in the way. We now have become a family of four! Our little girl decided to join the party on June 8th. Life has been busy these past few weeks with her and I was busy trying to just get through the end of the pregnancy before then. Will share some pics of her later.

I promised friends I would share photos of my scrap space. I have a little bit of an organizing fixation that many of my friends have expressed wonder at. I seriously should consider starting a business getting other crafters organized! So, here is a look at my space as it is right now in my basement.

View from the entrance to the basement- scrap space, family room and toy room beyond.

Large storage unit: Expedit from IKEA (this is the largest one you can get)

Close-up of a few shelves in the storage center

Rolling cart with Cricut, Big Shot and dies, punches and sewing machine.

This is a fun shadow box frame I received as a gift one Christmas. It houses my tags that I made when I attended a Tim Holtz class. I really like having this crafty element on the wall. It hangs above my rolling cart.

Crafting table with smaller storage pieces. The craft table has adjustable legs and is usually set so I can stand at it or use a tall bar stool. It was set to regular table height in this pic because I was clumsy and sore during my pregnancy and didn't do well standing/getting up on tall stools!

Two small storage centers. The one on the left has mostly stamping supplies (from my Stampin' Up! days) while the one on the right holds pages I have started, need to finish or have ideas for. To the left of the storage units is my bag with inks in it that hangs from a hook on the wall.

My bookcase from the middle up holds some scrap supplies as well. Idea books, some embellishments, sprays, Stickles, stickers are housed here.

I LOVE this basket I found at Home Sense. It sits on my craft table. The ribbon in the bottom is all on old fashioned clothes pins. This is my dainty ribbons that I don't want to get wrecked in my ribbon bag. The top basket has small left over pieces of ribbon.

So, that is my space in a nut shell. I am really happy with it now. It was a definite work in progress and was disjointed for awhile in our new home as some of my craft supplies were upstairs and some were downstairs. With the new addition, everything got moved downstairs to give her the third bedroom upstairs. It was a great step for me. Now we can all be downstairs doing our own thing and I can get a bit of crafting done! 

Stay tuned for a few of my more recent layouts to be shared soon!!
