Here we are…the last Friday in April! How did that happen? This is the time of year when I want the hours in the day to “slow down” so we can savour the sunshine and warmth. Winter is still fresh in many of our minds and we don’t need the next months to “whiz” by too fast! That said…grab a comforting beverage of your choice [you know mine will be a coffee!], take a big relaxing breath and sit for a moment to enjoy Sue Donald’s scrapbooking space!
I’m excited that you’re sharing my scrap room; it’s my favourite place to be!
When we moved to West Kelowna, we found a six bedroom house! My husband and I are both retired; the kids are on their own; so why did we need a six bedroom house? Number one reason…visitors! Then of course; a scrap room for me and a hobby room for my husband. I put “dibs” on the front room that overlooks our yard and the mountains beyond – my beautiful view!
Most of my storage pieces were in my previous scrap room in Alberta, but everything fit perfectly in our new home.
As I walk in the door [which has a shoe hanger on the back where I store my punches], there are IKEA shelves on the left where I keep a variety of supplies and books. To the side of this unit are two mounted CD holders that store my inks.
Beside that is a paper tower my son made for me.
On the window wall is my table and the things I use all the time.
On the next wall is a children’s storage unit from Ikea; the drawers are labelled and hold supplies. The top of this unit is home to more storage in Ikea boxes and my favourite magazines. I also have a rolling cart that also holds punches.
I have two “Alex” units in the closet for stamp storage. I just got the top one, so I still have to do the labelling.
On that wall there are vintage pieces I purchased which hold glitter, alcohol inks, and such. The computer desk was also made by my son. On all the walls (I wish I had more wall space!) are projects I have done, favourite pictures and awards from my previous life as a teacher.
I can’t say I have one favourite feature about my room. I count myself lucky to have it and can enjoy it every night, without having to put everything away. In the middle of a project; it looks like a hurricane hit it! I like that the room is organized and that I can USUALLY find what I need fairly quickly.
