My Humble but very Functional Scrap Space!!

Well since I have visited my Scrap Space all week...thought I would post a picture or 2 to let it know it is missed and ALSO to enter it into a challenge over at Picture Perfect Creations.  They simply want to see where everyone does their handy work.  Very good idea... for I have gotten some storage thoughts.  My space is very small.  It is downstairs in a corner of the room (about a 1/4 of the room) with all of the kids toys, kid's crafting table, game cupboard, TV area and my Hubby's weight bench... smack dab in the middle.  It's lovely.. let me tell ya.  But when I am creating away... I do forget what all is surrounding me and I do love my little space.  Everything has it's place... and I have my own personal rule... that when I start to run out of storage room... I must USE before Purchasing.  For all of you that have a small area to work in... I hope mine can give you ideas to work with.  One day... when we are empty nesters... I'll get a whole room all to  myself.  But I am not rushing that!!  Would much rather cram!!  Thanks for looking!!

Michelle...thank you SO much for visiting my blog! Its a newborn ;) And very basic. Which, I am anything but the basic personality (not sure if this is a good thing! hahah) once I learn how to do more "decorating" of a blog - I am sure I will have it all junked up with special things :) Honey...your not the 2nd follower..you are the 1st! Somehow, I became a follower of myself! ROFL - I clicked on something and out of nowhere - voila' - I was following - myself! hee hee...I'll get it...I know I will.

Now about you! You have a gorgeous place here on the WWW and your babies!!! Oh how beautiful. Aren't children the biggest miracle of life? I have my 1st grandson (in the pic with me on the blog) ...he is 4 now...and I could just eat him up! Gosh I love that kid. I never thought I would be "that" grandma ... but in truth...I make "that grandma" look like an old lady who hates kids! I am a horrible spoil-er. And I have no plans on changing.

Enjoy those babies Michelle, I swear, you turn around and they are grown ... not that this is a bad thing, but they just don't wanna cuddle and play kissy face quite as much. My grandson said he ALWAYS will give mawmaw kisses and hugs even when he is 30 thousand years old! LOL (everything is 30 thousand right now)

Thank you again - so much for taking the time to say hi and sign up!!! wooo hooo!!! I am an official blogger with a "following" LOL

I love your space! It may be in a corner of one room but you would never know that - you've done a very nice job of organizing it and decorating :) Thanks for showing us at PPC this week for our specialty challenge!

Jenny said...

Wow, super organized! Love it!

Tamie said...

Oh you are wonderful organizer! Your space is put to full use and who would know it is in a little space but it doesn't look small small at old. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful room with us at PPC.

Talk about OCD! Haha... It doesn't look like a small space at all, Michele. I have a whole room and it' not nearly as organized. Well, it was and then I think a bomb went off. :) If it's too neat and tidy I don't create anything because I don't want to mess it up. Great job, I love the pink and white boxes. You are Stampin Ups best customer from the looks of it. Someday I will show you my space but I have to tidy it up first.

Get busy, girl... oh wait, I didn't create anything last week either. So... let's both get busy and share some goodies this week. I did create a card last night, desperate to get my craft on, so look for that later.

And, yes, even though I don't have any... enjoy your kids, every moment, they grow up so fast!

Have a great week!!! :)

Wow!!!!!!!!! This is fan-freakin-tastic! (Yes, I consider that a word, so to heck with the spell-checker!) I love how orderly everything is - it looks so beautiful! I hang my head in shame as I type this from my cluttered desk. I am organized in most areas of my home, but my scrap space is a real disgrace!
