Hey SC friends! I'm here today to give you a little peek into my scraproom. My space is definitely a work in progress, but I'm slowly getting to a point where it works well for me. I've recently added a couple of fun new storage pieces - next on my list is painting the walls and hanging some things on the walls, as well as rearranging everything in the closet. It's always something, right?
I work in a small space - it's about 8ftx10ft, and was started life as the front porch of our 85 year old house. Previous owners enclosed it into a little room off the dining room, and it was a perfect space for me to take over. It also holds shelves with Sam's toys - he loves to hang out in here with me. The window over my desk overlooks our front yard, and I love that I can watch the boys ride their bikes or play outside while I work.
I like to have everything on use on a regular basis within reach while I work, and I use a set of colored flower pots to hold my favorite tools. The drawers on my desk hold recent embellishment purchases, ink pads, and adhesive refills. I love having a large workspace to spread out on, but to be honest, by the time I finish a layout it's usually an epic mess.
When I receive my kits each month, I unpack them and keep them out on my desk. Paper goes into the tray, small embellishments into the bowl, and larger embellishments and alphabets go into a cd box. Having it all out on my desk keeps me using it all month long!
I recently came across this vintage orange box at a boutique sale. I thought about using it in one of the boys' rooms, but once I realized how well my kits fit into it, I had to keep it for myself. I use the small baskets in front of it to hold bits and pieces that I've collected for Project Life.
These built in shelves to the left of my desk are perfect for holding patterned paper and albums. The metal drawers are another recent purchase. I found them at an antique mall in Kansas City and knew they had to come home with me! I'm still working on filling them up, but they're great for washi, tags, small sheets of stickers, packs of brads - all those little bits and pieces that I love, but that get lost in a larger storage piece. The wire basket holds my alphabets and some of my favorite stamp sets.
I hope you've enjoyed stopping by my work space - if you have any questions about how I store things, please ask away!!
