As I was thinking out a good subject for this week I thought of what I like to see while I blogbrowse. I like to see peeks of people's workspaces, their creative processes, and all that behind-the-scene stuff. You know the posts where someone goes through their fabulous scraprooms that are neatly organised and all.
Well, you are not at all going to see anything perfect this week, but I will show you how things work for me and hopefully you can be inspired by something! So, today I´ll show you how I organise my workspace to work for me while I scrapbook.
My scrapbookroom is located in the middle of our house and I love that I can still be midst all the family activity when I scrapbook. It is also always messy! When I took these photos I had just cleaned :). I have 2 desks; one that holds my computer (the printer is underneath), my sewing machine and typewriter. The second table is where the action happens! This is the set up:
1. Well, this is where I work. I used to work tight on the tabletop, but nowadays I have a sheet of heavy cardstock on there to protect the desk + it makes it ok to be messy with the glue and I can cut things to!
2. I keep my alphastamps in a divided container, originally for screws/nails, right on my desk. I lost the lid somewhere along the line so they got all dusty on the floor :) I love that they are right at hand.
3. My desk is a computer desk, so there is a pull out shelf where the keyboard suppose to go. I keep my paper embellishments here. I am a hybrid scrapper so I print most of my embellishments out from digital elements, hence all the papers here.
4. I keep my paper scraps + other bits and pieces in this basket. If the scrap paper fits, it goes in here, larger pieces goes back in the patterned paper basket that I keep under the desk.
5. My typewriter :)
6. A container full of pens, cutting stuff and such.
7. Ah, the bling. All my bling embellishments are stored in an old cupcake form. Organised by color.
8. The shelf holds bits and pieces like a few stamps, flowers etc.
9. This is a great idea! I made this weekly reminder dry erase board to help me keep track of online projects.
10. Sadly I keep my photos here, all unprotected! But I need to keep them where I see them!
I dug up some of the other Creative members craft spaces :)
Keshet Starr ( I love her ribbon holder!)
Emily Pitts ( I love those crop bags!)
Francine Clouden ( I love her set up she shared here even though it is an older post!)
Melissa Keiserman ( Also an older post, but a very good one none the less!)
Thank you for today, and I hope to see you here tomorrow when I´ll talk a bit about my journaling process!
