Our guest dt, Melissa Mann is here again to show her where she creates her awesome layouts and projects. Let's take a peek....
Hello again! I'm here to show you a look at my work-space this Wednesday! When I first started scrapbooking, I had one small desk and one set of plastic drawers. Such is not the case anymore! I have taken over about half of our spare bedroom these days and it is certainly not anything fancy, but it gets the job done and I love having a space for all of my stuff to be out and about! My husband got a piece of pegboard from Home Depot a few years back and that thing has truly been wonderful! I often switch things around on it to get them in view that way they are more likely to get used instead of just sitting. I also love that I can have my sewing machine and typewriter sit out at all times instead of having to take it out and put it away. I use both of those things on most of my layouts and I love the easy access to them. As you can probably tell by looking at my desk, I love bowls: any size, any color! I scored a big shallow bowl that someone was going to toss because it had a chip on one side. I snatched that bowl up and use it to store my go-to punches in. I like having my circle punches, corner rounders, heart punches, and star punches close by. I also use smaller bowls to hold pop dots (why do I have SO many of those things open!?), pens, adhesive, and smaller bits of things. In the corner, I have a corner shelf that houses my paint dabbers, ink pads, & mists. In the revolving bin, I keep lots of smaller things that no longer have packaging: buttons, chipboard, die cuts, twine, etc..I store my other punches in baskets that fit in my cubby storage. Off to the side of the cubby, I keep some 12 x 12 plastic storage boxes that hold products from various design teams I'm on. It's definitely not magazine worthy, but it works for me! Thanks for taking a peek at my space!
Thanks for sharing your space with us Melissa!
