Hello there! It’s Caroli and today I want to share my scrappy place and some ideas that have worked well for me in order to organize it.
I must start saying that I don’t have such a huge room for myself, but I share a spare room of my house with my little girl. Half of the room is mine and the other half is hers. We have our desks aligned together so she can make her homework and I can scrap at the same time. Sometimes on the weekends we get to scrap together too 🙂
I’ll show you my side of the room, this is how it looks from the door
This room had a makeover recently, it was painted and i organized furniture in a more convenient way, so I still I’m decorating and working things out, but at least it is clean and all my stuff is there to work with.
My work table is next to the window, so I can enjoy natural light on weekends, that is when I mostly work on my scrapbooks.
Over my desk I have all thing I use more frequently; on these buckets I keep pens, brushes. scissors, and small tools.
This is a Hello Kitty CD organizer I got several years ago, and now it helps me organizing some embellishments and alphas.
This organizer displays my alphas, Thickers and small embellishment packages in a convenient way. A friend got it for me in a flea market and I just love it!
On the other side of the table I have this cookie dish I love because it’s cute and also very useful. I keep some small ink edgers, and some other tiny stuff I’m using in a given moment for a specific project. Most of the time I keep here the embellishments of the Clique Kits’ kit I’m working with.
Next to the desk I have two shelving units where I store most of my stuff papers, big tools and machines.
Small shelve was custom-made by my man some years ago, and there I store patterned paper, cardstock, and some baskets where I keep punches, thread, twine, and many other small things.
In the big shelve I keep my BigShot, sewing machine, printer, and also my stereo and some CD with my fave music… yes, I’m old and I still use CD, LOL! But in my favor I must say that most of the time I connect my tablet and listen to some nice playlist.
Finally, I have this cart my Mom got me last year, which I love because its colors and because it can store a lot of stuff. Each drawer has some kind of stuff, like the mix media drawer, the stamping drawer, the sequins and wood veneers drawer, etc.
And that was my place. I also store some more cardstock and random stuff in a closet in the opposite side of the room, but you don’t really want to see that mess, LOL!
As you can see, I don’t have a ton of stuff, my basic rule for scrapbooking is use as much stuff as you can until you buy new one… of course I keep on collecting things but i don’t consider myself a hoarder, but a user 🙂
Hope you like my place and get inspired to organize yours, I let you this pic of how I’m decorating my wall these days, specially with this framed layout I made using my I Am Gold kit ❤ Have a lovely hump day 🙂
