My New Scrap Room!!!

 My scrap room has been done for a little while but it was chaos in there until today. I tried to do some tidying and organizing. I will admit that I did not get rid of a whole lot like I had planned. It is really tough to know what to get rid of because you never know...... but I did get rid of alot of magazines that were pre-2009. I figured I am probably not going to go back in time to look at ideas.

So this is workspace #1. I bought my furniture at IKEA. I have a single EXPEDIT bookshelf beside my desk and a paper rack on the other side which I purchased from Hobby Lobby. The rack above the desk holds my jars of buttons which are separated by colour. I have a spice rack on my desk that holds pieces of ribbon.

 These 2 photos are of workspace #2 where I have my Cricut machines and my sewing machine. It is the EXPEDIT shelf with the desk attachment. I have not completely organized my stuff in this shelf unit yet. So far I have photo albums, scrapbooks, scrap magazines, and my Cricut Cartridges in there (plus some junk). On top, I have boxes full of  ribbon separated by colour.

  This side of my room is the cube storage that I purchased at Michaels. It holds my 12x12 paper which I also separate into colours, both patterned and cardstock. The shelf above holds all my cards in boxes and more ribbon.

 This side of my room are plastic drawers that hold all my embellishments (stickers, letters, chipboard, etc.). I store many of my tools on this side as well. (embossing folders, die cuts, punches, Zutter, etc.) I divide my embellishments into themes like summer, winter, love, Halloween, etc.

 I bought this wall decor at Hobby Lobby. It is like a rub-on and was very easy to apply. It is a pretty popular quote which resonates with me.

 This is the view from my door of my room. I do not get a whole lot of natural light as my window is small and I am in the basement. I am lucky enough to have my own room for creating though so I know I am lucky!

 All the shelves were from IKEA as well. I will probably add on to my room as soon as IKEA opens here in Winnipeg- only a few more months!!!!!

 The lamp was from IKEA and so cheap! It gives a nice soft light for this work area.

I have to say that I really love my EXPEDIT furniture. I bought these purple storage boxes that fit perfectly inside so I can hide some of my non-scrappy craft items. Notice that red blanket- yep, I sewed that! I love being crafty!!!!

Remember my old room........What a difference!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
