Show Me Your Craft Room Blog Hop!


Wow!  A blog hop to make you clean your room!  Now THIS was something I needed to get involved in!!!  What a fun idea!  I first want to thank Susan P for presenting this idea as I'm sure we'll all get a lot of great ideas today as we hop from room to room!

I feel that I should say though, that my room is fairly misrepresented here...  it NEVER looks this clean.  I am a MESSY scrapper.  I throw stuff on the floor, I toss things around as I go, and when its that way, I can find EVERYTHING!  When it's this way?  I'll LOSE everything ; )

Here are some pictures of my room, beneith some of the pictures, you will find either small bits of information about what you see, or organizational tips I thought might be helpful to share.  Thank you, as always, for taking the time to see me today - I am excited about the new friends I might make from today's hops and the new ideas I might get from all of this sharing!!

I keep a box on my desk for extra pieces I've made.  I always make Create a Critters in sets of 4 - it takes little effort more to make 3 more than it does to make 1, and the next time I need one, its already ready!

My Sewing corner.

I sketch out layouts I like, then post them on this wall.  When I'm making large albums, I use these to help me get the process going faster.

Wire paper organizer to the left, lots of pics on the wall : ) plastic peg board kit I got from Wal Mart - I love to hang my scissors, new stickers, adhesives, etc on this wall. 

This is under my main work desk - I keep a box to throw scrap paper, and see that nasty thing in the back?  Its a box that JoAnns used to ship some 12 x 24 paper to me, I use it to protect my work surface when I'm using spray inks, heat embossing, or just being extra messy : )

This is a remainted and re-purposed spice rack.

I keep my supplies in boxes by type, and label them with things like paint stuff, glitter stuff, sticky stuff, pens, rub ons, mats, tags, stamp stuff, Cricut Stuff, etc.

Thanks for coming by today!  Next on this hop is Raven's Room!  Enjoy!
