My work space is not too exciting, so I've been hesitant to post about it. My last scrapbook room was featured in Better Homes and Gardens magazine. So - how do you beat that? You don't. ;o) Besides, I don't scrapbook much anymore, so I don't need much space for it or for my supplies. This is a very scaled down studio compared to the last one. It also changes from time to time when I feel like moving things around.
Here is a shot of my desk, which is made from two file cabinets and an under-cabinet drawer from Pottery Barn. I painted a piece of plywood black to connect them and serve as my desktop. My computer is an absolute must, so it has prime placement on my desk. My Dahle paper trimmer is the same one I've had since I began this type of work, and it still works just as great as it ever did. That's probably one of the best purchases I've ever made. In fact, I should probably go add it to my "must-have" section right now (*note to self*). On the right side of my desk, I have an old mail-sorter that is used for storing miscellaneous items. My inspiration board is posted above so I always have something pretty to look at.
Here is a wider shot, so you can see where Daisy gets creative. She has her own little desk and she sits on the floor to work. This space is never this clean, by the way - it was tidied up for this shot. She has her own paper trimmer (Making Memories) and all of her own supplies.
Here is a better shot of some of the items on her desktop. Most of these jars are from The Container Store. I like keeping buttons and ribbons on display because they are so pretty and colorful.
Back to my desk...
The middle drawer stores all of the essentials: craft knife, adhesives, scissors, etc. The side drawers store all of my embellishments, rub-ons, stickers, and also my tax paperwork (gotta keep it somewhere!). Below is a shot of what one of the embellishment drawers looks like. Can you tell I used to work for Making Memories?:
Here is a shot of another drawer. This one holds alphabet stickers and rub-ons. I sort them all by color, and I have chipboard tabs to separate each section. It probably isn't the neatest drawer in my desk, but it is one of the most frequently used:
Well, there you have it! A tour of my studio. That didn't take long, did it? Truthfully, I do have more storage space - I just haven't photographed the rest of it. I have a section for cardstock and patterned paper storage, and yet another area for more "stuff" (the extras - like punches, chipboard, mini albums, etc.).
