HAPPY NEW YEAR! This is our first Where You Create since 2015 and I am happy to be back with some more great spaces to share. Hopefully everyone survived the busy days of December and life has returned “normal” once again.
This is an exciting year of growth for Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, one that started with our new name and the exciting news that we will be available in Barnes and Noble when our Spring Issues is out! I am beyond thrilled to be working [playing!] with this fabulous group of friends and look forward to reaching out beyond Canada’s borders to a global audience!
Let’s grab a moment together and step into a well-organized creative space! Thanking Rene Wahl in advance…for letting us in!
Good morning! Last spring I had posted pictures of my newly renovated scrapbook room and some friends told me I should send them to you. Here they are!
My husband made my desk out of a slab of granite; he designed the legs and base. My paper organizer was also made by my husband from horizontal book cases purchased at Lowes.
The vinyl clings on the wall were made by a friend of mine.
I organize my brads, eyelets and gems into small jars by theme, the medium jars organize my buttons by colour and the large jars keep my ribbon organized by colour.
The middle organizer on my wall came from Michaels, the glassed door cabinets came from Target, my husband added the washi tape holders (as you can see I have a ton of it) to them with curtain rods from Lowes.
The cubical case holds my photo boxes (only 2 actually have photos in them; the rest are labeled for contents…embellishments, stickers, stamps, die cuts, etc.) My husband added the extra washi tape holder to that one as well! My framed artwork is my son’s, from when he was a toddler in daycare. The tall cabinets came from Target as well.
My room is big enough that I can put a six foot table in it if I have a couple friends over to crop, that way we don’t have to go far for any supplies. And of course you need a TV while you work, can’t miss any of your favorite shows!
I love to feature your spaces, so keep them coming! You can send your pictures and a description of your space to: firstname.lastname@example.org
