Morning everyone and Happy Monday!
I have been up and about early for work this morning and not much sleep as my head was going around and around working out a project/adventure I have coming up soon. Stay Tuned!!! 🙂
Over the weekend I have been straightening up my scrap space and I now have most of it situated in the lounge room corner. I have left my huge table in the dining room with some other bits and pieces on it and to use to make a mess with my paint, inks etc.
I have one great bench for my scrap space, which has two cupboards and shelves. As the other one I wanted to match was unavailable, I decided to give an old piece of furniture a new lease on life and re-purpose it in my scrap space. I could have repainted it etc, but I liked its charm the way it was. It had a few scratches on one side but didn’t matter as they can’t be seen.
This great shelf unit on the left used to be a bar and I have cleaned it up and converted the shelf space for my scrap booking supplies. It is a fair age, but it is very strong and still in great shape. The drawers I have lined with some scrapbook paper. I have my 6×6 papers, ribbons in the jars, embellishments in baskets and PL on the bottom right. Opposite you can see my Raskog cart all loaded up and ready to go!
This is looking into our lounge room from the kitchen and I have a great position in front of the huge windows and it gets heaps of natural light. I have my other bench in front to work on and not cluttered with tools etc. I just have my magnetic mat, other cutting mat and cordless light. By keeping my bench clear, I am hoping I will want to create more!
As you can see I have put my trusty book shelf on top of the bar and it gives me extra storage, while using the wall space. I have gone up instead of out 🙂 In the tiered basket on the left I have heaps of my flowers out so I will use them, wall storage with goodies in them and my Raskog 🙂 The shelves have my card stock, masks, scrap papers, etc stored on it. My ribbon dress sits above and I can still access it easily!
As you can see I have plenty of space for all my scrap supplies and by having my Raskog next to the bench with all my tools, stamps etc I think I will be more creative on my next project 😉 On the door handle on the other side I have one of the small hanging cups with my tape, scissors etc in it instead of on the bench 🙂 I think I have created a space for my creativity to bloom and all my bits and bobs are in easy reach and all organised. 🙂
Stay tuned for my next adventure!
Happy Scrapping x
