My scrap space...

Hi Friends!  If you are looking for the GET PICKY blog hop.... pleases scroll down or visit here.
___________________________________________________


Recently I've had a HUGE clean out of my scrapping area.  Not just the generally tidy up.. but the full on of moving furniture, purging of patterned papers and getting myself so much better organised!! LOL!  It feels so much better to be able to walk into my room and even though it is a shared room (with baby change table, two seater sofa and a gazillion kids toys!!), I feel like I really have a designated area to work in now.

I think the last time I was "forced" to take a photo of my space, I was on the Kaisercraft DT.  And even then I didn't realise what I was in for.  hee hee.  My space was basic.  Incredibly basic.  



Simple and tidy but after working for Kaiser for 12 months, my space shrunk.  LOL!  They are very generous with their products and we, as a DT member, were swamped with all the latest and greatest product they produced!! Boxes and boxes of stuff arrived and I found I was placing them under my table and on the couch to stop from tripping over them!  It was cluttered.  Not all the time but every time I needed to scrap....


So... in the last two weeks, I've had a major scrap overhaul.  LOL!!  For no other reason than it was driving me nuts!  Completely.  I hate being in a disorganised space.  I can't use the products I have effectively (especially if I can't find them!) and it was time to give the camping table back to my hubby!

Well... maybe.  I haven't decided yet because I really like the table space! LOL!! (You can see it against the window in the photo below.)


And so the clean up began.  And I am not being "forced" to take the scrap space photos for any DT project.. hee hee.  This is just for me and anyone who wants a few ideas for their own space.  The end result?  Here goes...


So what do you think?  I think I need another one of the tall shelving units (from Bunnings) as I still have stuff I need to put away.  But for now I am hoping I can find things with a little more ease and get down to doing some more creating!! Yay!

Thanks for visiting...x

There's nothing like a good clean out to renew the creative urge, I reckon.... a purge leads to an urge??!! Or something. You're getting me inspired by these wonderful photos:)
