Thanks Tina!!!

Here's the award that Tina gave me . Check out Tina's blog!! Thanks Tina, so very kind of you!!!
I thought I would post some pics of where I get scrappy! This is my little pink and brown make shift craft room. It's a retreat off of our master bedroom and overlooks the downstairs of my house as well as the upstairs loft and hallway to their rooms. This works out as I'm able to see and hear the kids while I'm in there. It's slowly closing in on me. I need to add cabinets to the other side still, that should help with storage.





So here it is my scrappy haven!!! I painted some peg board pink and covered the whole wall with it to house my tools and embellishments. I love having things out and in front of me. I used my cricut to cut out the names of my stations, Tools/Embellishments. I still need to hang my storage shelves on the left wall for extra storage and display.


Cubes are from Target. They hold my CTMH cardstock and the files have patterned paper all organized by color.
The right side of the desk top is where I hang my embellishments and my cricut. I have a rolling cart that I altered and that has all my immediate tools - adhesives, stamping/chalk supplies, distressing tools, embossing stuff and stickles
This is the other side of the room. I got the canvas baskets from Walmart and have them labeled. One bookshelf has all of my books (bible study, inspirational etc) The other bookshelf houses my sizzix and cuttlebug tools. The baskets on the top shelf hold fabric and flowers, the bottom shelf holds my punches and some albums and kits.
Here's the french doors that open up to my room. I have a small craft table that I love. My mom bought it for me years ago so it is very special to me.

This other table I got from Sam's Club and I use it for my sizzix station as well as for my daughter when she wants to create too. The book shelf to the right holds inspiration books, and the canvas baskets are from Lowes. They fold flat and were only 4.99 each. They hold embellishments of all sorts.
Here's the inside of my cabinets which I got from Lowes, I think. The first one holds all my old woodies. Got the plastic cases at Joannes for half price.The next cabinet holds some more wood stamps as well as my foam stampls which are in the plastic containers and my Xyron machines and adhesives. The top container holds some ribbon spools.
This cabinet holds some embellishment boxes and some misc. supplies. I need to put this cabinet to better use. The last cabinet holds my CTMH acrylic stamps.I also have extra markers adhesive and envelopes in this cabinet. Below is the bench seat my husband built from scratch for me. It was a gift for Valentines Day a few years ago!!! He's the bomb!


The cabinets under the bench seat hold my albums and photos/memorabilia. These jars line the entire length of my counter top. We eat a lot of Better n butter peanut butter from Trader Joe's and the jars are just perfect for holding flowers and ribbon. I used my coluzzle to cut circles of PP to cover the tops. I used CTMH More to Adore as the inspiration for my room.
This was a pink shelf unit for a baby's room I got from Target 7 years ago. I never took it out of the box. It was meant for my daughter's room but instead it wound up in here!

I use it to hang these little $1 baskets from Target to hold flowers and accessories. The shelf holds my cricut cartridges and my beloved Primas.

Well that's it. I am still working on getting more cabinets put up an my window treatment but for now it works and it makes me happy. Hope that inspires somebody!!!

Happy scrappin,
Melanie

Wow! Your space is very fun. I have some of those same peanut butter jars from my mother-in-law. I have them in the kitchen holding different grains (I bake a lot of bread), but yours are so cute.

Great room, I'll think I'll come visit more often! Lots of fun stuff to play with. Funny that you posted this today, I was looking at all our "stuff" and wondering what to do with it, thought about creating a space in our classroom to incorporate it all. Thanks for the ideas.

Dawn said...

Wow - lucky you! Your space looks amazing.
