Here we are…October! The seasons have most definitely changed. Though it saddens me that winter follows so quickly, I adore this time of year…the colours, the crispness of the air, cozy sweaters and scarves; not to mention Thanksgiving and Halloween! Embrace this awesome month and spend some time creating!
This week we are in Candace Bernier’s craft room. A gorgeous space in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan!
I love your magazine; every time I see it in the drugstore I grab a copy! I hosted a wedding shower a while back and cleaned my scrapbook room from top to bottom; invariably a guest would want to see it.
We built our house several years ago. I was lucky enough to be able to customize a room to suit my scrapbooking and painting needs. My favourite part is the two big windows; which let in so much natural light. The wall unit was custom built, as was the desk.
The big pull-out on the right hand side of the desk is awesome, perfect for having papers always at hand. I bought a sock drawer divider unit to store grommets and bits and pieces in the drawer to the left.
I use the wall unit to store patterned paper [by colour], ribbons, ink and flowers. The little table to the right of my desk folds down, but it’s usually up all the time as I put the computer there.
I had the contractor put extra shelves in the closet so I could use it to store pictures, albums, etc.
The standing pull out drawer and wire rack are all moveable so I can roll them over to the desk if I need them closer.
I love that everything has a place. I can close up the doors and everything is neat and tidy; which is important because the room has a day bed and can double as a guest room. I love my room’s functionality, I treasure being able to create in it and enjoy past memories through my scrapping.
Thanks Candace for sharing your space…it’s perfect!
