ETA: So sorry for the delay, everyone! The holiday messed up my calendar – I thought TOMORROW was Tuesday! 🙁
Today, we’re starting a new blog series, called Where We Scrap. Over the next 10 weeks, our bloggers will share their scrapping spaces with you. With the new year, maybe you’ll find some ideas to help with your resolution of keeping your scrap space organized! 🙂
My Scrapbook Space
by Jayme Loge
Happy New Year Scrapbookers! I wish you health, happiness and love for 2013 :0)
I am the lucky lady that gets to start off our new blog series on our scrapbook spaces. My space has been through many, many transformations and adaptations, but the current set up is one I love. It is right in the middle of our family room, and is a space I share with my daughter’s toys, and all our family activities.
I have a counter height table set up behind the couch (on custom built stilts courtesy of my husband/super-organizer). When needed I have two more tables that I can set up, usually in a U shape, but those were put away to make room for hosting Christmas dinner.
I have had my own separate scrapbooking room, but found that I didn’t like being sequestered away from my family. This way, I can be right in the middle of things. We have set up the space with storage in mind. I share an Ikea shelf with my daughter’s toys. She has the baskets, and I have the bins.
On my right side is a sofa table, or hutch that I keep my albums, cricut and small odds and ends in. And some wine… Over that is a large metal magnet board, where I keep sketches, assignments, my daughter’s art and other odds and ends that just need a place to hang around.
On my left side is a small storage closet. My husband built shelves that fit different bin sizes, and here is where most of my supplies live. I went crazy with my labeller and can actually find what I need in here.
Finally, behind me are some built in cabinets and drawers that hold most of my big tools, dies and other supplies. With the plug in right there, it is also where I use my heat gun, cricut and photo printer.
Here is the view from the other way! It may not be fancy, but I love the central location of my scrapbook space and the way storage is set up so I can find things.
