My Scrap Room

Hello Crafters,
Earlier I saw that Christina from Creations with Christina had another 'show us' link up party going on. When I read the topic 'show us your craft space' I actually LOL. It was a crazy weekend and between running in and out to different things I managed to get some crafting in. I did not however get to the clean up part. I decided it needed to be cleaned up before I could take a photo. I was just starting to clean when I thought this might be a real transformation and grabbed my camera for a before shot. I am so glad I did and now that it is all nice and neat again I am happy to share not only the after but the before as well so you can see how hard I worked :) It took the better part of the afternoon to get the room back into shape.

I have been looking at some of the great rooms that have already been linked and have to say I am a bit intimidated but I am linking up because I love to see all sorts of rooms and it always amazes me to see part of dinning rooms or a closet turned into a workstation. My room may not have all matching furniture or be a pretty colour but I do have an entire spare room of our apt. and for that I am grateful!
Thanks for taking a peek into my little slice of paradise!

BEFORE
Honestly, my craft space never looks this bad!






AFTER





This is my favourite decoration in my room :)


My Second row of cartridges is stuck behind these ones...poor things. Just no room to display them all.


And now can you see why I am on a paper diet?! I put the ruler there just to give you a real sense. After I broke some furniture from the weight of some paper packs I decided to pile them all on the floor. When Brian saw them all together he was a tad unsupportive but I told him I would try really hard not to by anymore and I have been I swear. I have only added maybe an inch to this this year....shhh he has not really noticed though :) The real sad part...my cardstock and loose patterned papers are in some of those towers in the closet. These are just the patterned paper pads :S Yes, I admit I have a problem!!!

What a transformation. I wish I had more room. Of course, if I did have a larger area I would probablly want more "stuff" to fill it up. : )

I couldn't even show my craftroom, i just don't know how it gets so messy. I think everything craft related is in that room. I'm so going to go threw it and make more room for what i use most...TFS!
i wish i had your problem with paper, i only have costco stuff and one pkg from SU , and i have to say the costco stuff is probably over 6yrs old...i so have to purchase some quality paper. I find though that it's so expensive. What's a good brand that won't take my arm and leg when i go to the checkout:) have a great day...www.justwordz.ca

I laughed so hard reading this. I know exactly what you mean about being on a paper diet. I'm in the same place. It's just so hard!

Tracey said...

OMG, I'd love all that paper. If that was me I'd find the diet very difficult! Ha ha ha. You have a great space, I'd love my own room!

Thanks for sharing your space with us

Especially like the fact that you placed the ruler for a feel of how tall the paper stack is. Ordered some of those new cartridge plastic containers online and waiting for them to arrive so I can trash the Cricut boxes and put the cartridges, booklets & templates in them. Currently they have filled up my bookshelf.
