My Scrap Room!!!!!

Hello folks - here it is at last - My Scrappy Place.....

I would love to have made this a video, but methinks I might have had a few problems actually getting it onto the blog - I'm hopeless with technology - maybe one day.....

So, here it is....

This is the view as you walk in the door....



The draws and cupboards are from Ikea....



A closer view....



The huge black frame is also Ikea, which I just put a beautiful piece of paper in.....

The smaller frames underneath were cut on Cricut - I'll put them on the Scrappy Go Lucky Blog soon....



Turning right, there is a storage cupboard (built into room) and Ikea wall cubbies....



The coloured trays hold my ribbon....



Continuing to the right, on the same wall as the door, facing my table, is an Ikea cube storage thingy....



I LOVE pretty boxes.....



In towards the corner - my Curtain Call Corner.....



Love it.....



Closer view.....



My prize project - JUDY.....



The window wall - the window is huge, so not a lot here, two Ikea units underneath....



How did that get here? Should have been towards the top of post...!!!



My paper storage.....

This works for me - the 12 x 12 paper bags you get from the scrappy store when you purchase papers.....

I store my papers by collection, in alphabetical order (most of the time...LOL).....

The boxes are - wait for it - nappy boxes!!!!!

When oldest Granddaughter Rebekah was a baby.... just wrapped them in wrapping paper - $2 a roll....

Stored underneath my table - too easy.....



Another close up of stuff......



More stuff......



Different angle - are you starting to get a feel for my Happy Scrappy Place.....



The chandeliers on the wall are from - wait for it - Avon!!!!!



A little church by Twiddleybitz I'm working on (have been working on for weeks....LOL) I'm terrible for starting a project and then leaving it for a while (back and forward KWIM)....



My ribbon storage trays - love rummaging in these draws....



The boxes to the left of picture are from Ikea, which I have painted white and covered with papers - these draws hold my cardstock scraps - by colour.....



The beautiful boxes hold distress inks, stamps, lace, roses, bling, pearls, etc - next post I will show more details of what's inside.....



The four wee draws on top of the Ikea cube, to the left, holds my pens.....



And back round to my Curtain Call Corner.....



A few close ups.....





Underneath the window are two more Ikea units and my CRICUT.....



Another Curtain Call project - can you tell I l0ve Graphic 45's Curtain Call....



My Cricut sits to my right hand side when I am crafting, and the draws underneath hold all my Cricut paraphanalia.....



My workspace.....




My little DVD player for company - hubby works away from home a lot.....




So, there you have it.....

And, yes, you're right - it's NEVER this tidy. I had a special spruce up to get the photo's....

I would love it to look like this all the time - but that just doesn't happen, as you all know....

Next post I will show you what's inside the draws, cupboards and boxes (not all of them, hee hee) how I store my Cricut carts, etc. and a photo of what the room REALLY looks like on a normal scrappy day.....

See you then....

Hugs

What a truly special, magical place you have created. What a beautiful space to create the beauty you do. I had to snicker, because when I read where you did a special "spruce up", I had already noticed the sweeper design in the carpet. You did the same thing I did when I did my photos of my room. God forbid we have even a speck on the floor when we take the pics right? LOL Thanks for sharing this gorgeous space. Best, Curt

There are no words.... I absolutely loved the tour of your very special room to create all of your lovely work. Every single spot has been so well designed, and the entire room is just perfect and wonderful. WOW, ...
I feel like I can't ever go back in my messy room again.
