12 Days of Giving

Happy September!

Kids are back at school for most of Canada, and we pray that British Columbia can get things figured out soon for the sake of the kids! Time to grab a coffee and enjoy a peek into Corry Heinricks’ space! Lots of storage ideas waiting for you, so enjoy!

 

After a 2 year hiatus from paper-crafting while I got my photo studio business up and running I am back in the thick of ink and paper.   I spent the first month of this year doing a whole house clean sweep and that included a large purge and reorganize of my scrapbook space as well.   I got rid of a lot (even though from the photos you can’t tell because I could still create for years without ever having to purchase anything but adhesive and white card stock) but what I am so happy about is sorting and once again seeing what I have, putting things in order and knowing where things are so I might actually use what I have.

 I also was able to Finally get my old office desk resurfaced with sheet metal (thanks to my supportive hubby) so the entire surface is magnetic and I can use my little magnets while creating to hold down my works in progress. (My 12″ scrap-it board was great but this is so much better).  He also raised the legs so my desk is the perfect height for standing to work but I do have a tall swivel stool when I need to sit.

 You can see from the photos how I have organized things, with lots of clear containers because if you can’t see it you don’t use it!   I have jars for flower and button storage, boxes for misc embellishments and supplies, clip it up clips and rods for my cricut cartridge books and CTMH stamps, unmounted Unity stamps are in Stor-it containers in a rolling file holder, my patterned paper is in vertical magazine files on rolling trays that my hubby built for me just sized right to fit under my work desk.

 My favorite piece in my space though has to be my library card file unit that I got when the local school was getting rid of it.  I painted it white and labelled the drawers so I have one for each letter in the alphabet, perfect for my chipboard alphas. Among many other things like punches and small tools.  I also have all the magazines (many of them Canadian scrapbooker)  I’ve been published in hanging on the wall above my cardstock holders.   

I have been Scrapbooking for well over a decade and even though my kids are now grown up and I have an empty nest I enjoy smash booking daily life, creating layouts from our various travels, making cards,  And I hope to get back into teaching card classes again soon.    I hope you’ve enjoyed the peek into my space and hope I have inspired you.  (And of course when I’m in create mode my counters and desk are completely covered in stuff, this is a rare sight 🙂 ). “Creative minds are seldom tidy” has always been one of my mottos.
