My Space

So I've totally blown the "post every day this month" goal that I had for myself. We either just don't live exciting enough lives or I'm just not creative enough to come up with topics and posts. I think it's actually a little of both. I had one question about my scrap space, so I'll share that with you today.

For a while I had no designated space. I had a card table that I drug out every time I wanted to scrap. That was back when all my supplies fit into one rolling tote. I really wanted my own craft room and not very long after Natalie was born I came very close to turning our spare bedroom into one. Then we decided we wanted another kid so it made no sense to do that.

So.. this is what I have in the corner of our living room.

This armoire works really well. I can close it up and hide everything when I'm not scrapping. For the most part anyway... The problem now is that I have more stuff than this will hold. I have crates, bags and boxes stacked up on both sides of the unit. I have given some thought to having the girls share a room and turning the other bedroom into a play room ~ scrap room. I'd rather Abigail be a little older before I do that, so that may be a project for next spring.
Anyway.. that's where I scrap. It's small but it works!

Just the inspiration I needed. I have an armoire that I was planning to get rid of & now I'm thinking I should hang on to it. Don't know why I never thought of that =) Thanks for sharing!

I have an area in the family room, too, but mine doesn't hide as well as yours!! LOL

By the way, you won a paper popsicles blog hop goodie from my blog. :)

I think that is a perfect space to do what you love! It is manageable and it might help you keep your stuff in check!!! I am glad you came by to participate in our first ever blog hop at Paper Popsicles! Hope to see some of your work on our blog for our weekly sketch challenges and on our message board for our monthly challenges. Lots of goodies await!

Leah, you sound just like me. I am such a slacker these days when it comes to blogging. But like you, I don't think my life is interesting enough to blog about everyday. And I'm SURE people get tired of hearing about the day to day comings and goings of me and Jayla :-). ANYWAY...I'm finally getting around to reading blogs too. And I must say, I love seeing where people create. Thanks for sharing your creative space with us. Now, is your desk ALWAYS that clean? I'm inspired :-).

Oh, and thanks again for the tip today. I've already found a few things I might purchase. You're the best.
