Hey Everybody! As a special treat I thought I would give you an inside look at my scraproom! Sometime in April, my mother-in-law asked me if I would like her to help me turn our spare bedroom into a REAL scraproom and I was NOT about to say no! We got most of the work done that weekend and I've been decorating and organizing since then. Just a side note, I did clean up my room before taking these pics and even my husband commented on how clean it was when in reality I was thinking it still looked a little messy...lol!
So here we go!

This is what you see when you first walk into my room. On the far right wall I have a little sign in the middle that says 'I may be in my own little world but they know me here'...thought it was very fitting! I got it at Hobby Lobby for around $5. In between the two walls is my storage cabinet for my paper. My husband build it for me out of pine wood and square grates. He drilled holes and used zip ties to attach the grate. I love it :) On the wall to the left, is where I keep all of my printed photos, stickers, and other embellishments. There are plastic drawers that I also use for storage under the shelves.

When you walk into the door and turn left this is what you will see. I have a cabinet where I store my magazines, idea books, and empty albums. On the shelf I have my albums that I'm working on. I don't like to call them finished because in my mind they never will be...lol. I also store my mini sewing machine and my digital images/CDs on that shelf.

This is just the inside of the cabinet.

This is the table in my room. My mother-in-law gave me an ear piercing table which makes up the right side of the table. I love the drawer in it because it has about twenty really small sections in the drawer. Because of that, I decided to make that end of the table my Cricut central. It's also on the same end as my paper storage so all of my paper is in reach. The far left side of the table is an entertainment table. A large piece of pine is connecting the two tables which I painted and placed plastic over the tables for easy clean up.

This is just another look at my storage wall and paper storage unit. I love having these shelves behind my desk because when I sit at my desk everything is in reach.

This is a very small element in my room but for me it sets a mood. I like the candles sitting on the windowsill because they are very calming.

Anybody who knows me at all knows why this sign is in my room! I can't tell you how many times a day this phrase comes out of my mouth!

I hope you enjoyed the tour of my scraproom. I really do love it. Until we meet again,
Happy Scrappin' SB

  8. So good to see you having fun in your scrapbooking room. As Virginia Wolf said so many years ago, "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction." Oops, I mean if she is to scrapbook! :) Okay, just a slight twist on her words. But it's good to have a place to "retreat" to - and have some happy moments away from the riggors of life.

  9. Very organized. I need to take notes on how your cubbies are arranged and the apply it to my space.
