By now most of us are back into our normal routines. With the holidays weeks behind us, we can take a big, relaxing breath and hopefully carve out some scrapbooking time. With a noticeable difference in daylight, I sense my body starting to wake up for lack of a better word. I tend to gravitate to my scrapbook room instead of the couch in the evenings, and I feel my “mojo” slowly returning.
If you still need help with your “mojo”, maybe a peek into April Childs scrap room will get it revved up! Look close and you will see LOTS of great ideas for organizing supplies and work space.
Here are some pics of where I create. My scrap room isn’t an actual room but instead is a part of our basement family room. Our family room is shaped like an L and my area is in the short part of the L. It works out perfectly because the long part of the L is a TV room/play room so most times when I am down here playing with paper; my two small children are playing in front of me where I can keep an eye on them.
My favourite thing about this room is a tie between the cupboards and countertop my husband bought me off Kijiji for a steal and the awesome wall shelves he built me to hold all my special trinkets and also some scrappy supplies. I also really love the movie poster from my favourite movie ever (filmed in Calgary and Cochrane!)
The two windows give me lots of natural light during the day and the overhead light gives me plenty of light when I’m working into the wee hours. I love that everything I need is within reach and I can easily roll my chair over to the counter to use my sewing machine or Cricut when need be.
I’ve had many different scrap “rooms” over the years and I’m finally glad to have a permanent place to unleash my creativity.
