HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Before we get right into WHERE YOU CREATE this week, I have to say how excited I am with all the e-mails I have received this past week, we have lots of FUN spaces to visit…keep them coming!
This week Kathleen Schriber opens her scraproom door to us! Look closely as she has oodles of things packed and organized…everything has a place! After receiving her pictures I had sent a quick response asking her to share her thoughts and favourite things about her room. Here is her response!
Thank you! I’m honored!
I love my craft room because it is bright, cheerful and full of the things I love. I’ve always dreamed of my ‘own room’ to play and make things that make me and others happy! I have many favorites in here, but I think I have to say what I love the most; is the storage I made for my ribbons. I seldom used my ribbons because they were tucked away and I couldn’t see them. Now I have them ‘out in the open’, well…they’re behind the door, but in what was an unused and wasted space, now I can just look, choose and grab the ribbon need. I made the cards in which to thread the ribbon; from liners that come in boxes, and have them hanging from a $2 over the door rack.
Most of my storage is either from garage sale finds, homemade or free. Having been fortunate to save money this way, I felt I could indulge in buying the ‘recollections’ storage cubes and some shelving from my local hardware. There isn’t any wasted space in my room. I’ve utilized every inch available. Although it gets cluttered very easily, there is a ‘home’ for everything I own and I know where everything is. Almost!!!
Sometimes I have to dig a little *wink*. I store all my small dies and embossing folders under my work table in photo boxes, on a $4 shoe rack. Another ‘find’!
What I love most about my room, although it’s small, I have two nice big windows that let the light in. I can look out and watch the birds, deer, squirrels, rabbits and other wildlife that come to visit. I spend a lot of time here. It’s my favorite room in the house. I’d love to have a small TV but I’m afraid, I would never leave. Now if I just had room for a coffee pot!
Thanks Kathleen for sharing this wonderful space and all of your frugal storage ideas!
