What I've been Up To

I'm sorry I haven't posted much in a while. I've been soooo busy relocating my scrap room. I'd like to say it's all done but you and I both know our scrap rooms are a work in progress. There's always something needing tweaked :) My wonderful Hubby, who is always supportive of my hobby built me a nice long(8 feet!) work surface, added 3 sets of electrical outlets and hung up a 2'x8'peg board(which I painted). No more sitting on the floor with everything spread out around me (although I kinda liked that method) I'm not sure if I'll be able to scrap in all this neatness. Kevin asked me last night if I was getting scrapper's block from my new space ;)
I moved all my wire cubes from my old room and boy was that a task. Kevin also built me a shelf for my Cricut cartridges. The Stickles holder was my idea and I "built" most of it myself but Kevin helped tweak it to work even better for me. I'll post how that was made on another day :)

My work area with my Cricut and paper cutter The peg board is not full yet because I'm still not sure what I need to hang on it. My Cuttlebug embossing folders are inside the little lunch box ;)
My ribbon rack (made from an old curtain rod, mounted to the frame of my peg board. Unfortunately the rod is too thick for a lot of my smaller spools, so they still live in a box)
My patterned paper area, DCWV Stacks and scraps. My Cricut carts on on the shelf and there is various "stuff" in the baskets. In the colored boxes are pre-made die cuts and "almost finished" projects.
These cubes house my stamping stuff and Sizzix machine and dies. In the baskets are ribbons on flat rolls and the other one has my punches.
These are my "anything goes" cubes. There's a little bit of everything. From adhesives to more ribbon, Prima flowers, embellies, trimmers, tools, chalks, glitters and embossing powders and my Bind-it-all.
Here's my beautiful Stickles holder close up. They're just so pretty I had to put them on my work surface so I could admire them. There are a few open spots so that I have room to add more :)
Glad I could share my crafty piece of the world with you.

What a great space!!!! It's going to be a fantastic place to work once you get used to it. Always takes a little time since your hand naturally reaches to the spot where your tool was. Have fun. Can't wait to see how you made the stickles holder ... its wonderful. hugs, eileen

This is a great room. It looks so clean and organized. I did some organization myself a month or so ago. It's a lot of work. BTW, I love the stickles holder too.
