***This is a repost of my guest post on the MemoryWorks blog*** (yep, cheating again! LOL)
Hello all! Back again to take you on a little tour of my creative space.
Funny thing - I should be posting pictures of my over-full rolling
totes, because these days, it seems the only time I get things done is
at a crop. But, I am blessed to have my own scrappy space (and WAY too
much stuff to organize in it) so I'll show you that instead. ;)
My room is about 10 x 12, so I use it as an office, small crop store,
and scrap studio. I've got the majority of my scrappy items together in
an L-shaped configuration with my desk and mesh cubes from Target.
The desk is made from a hollow core door that I spray painted black and 2
Wal-Mart bookshelves that my hubby and I "hacked" to make the whole
thing desk-height. I love the large work surface! On top is a plastic
mat from Ikea that I use to protect the desktop. All my heavily-used
tools are at arm's length. My tool tote is on a lazy susan, because,
although my name's not Susan, well... On the bookshelves underneath I
have all my Etsy supplies and a few lesser-used tools. There's also an
Iris cart that holds all my Cricut supplies, a 12 x 12 drawer unit, and
my "basket of shame" - a picnic basket that holds my obscene amount of
Love my pinboard. It hangs right over my desk. I like to change out
quotes and sayings that motivate me. I've had this one up for a while.
My Distress Ink storage. This is a jewelry holder I bought at Michael's. I need more inks!
More stamp storage. These are the stamps I've deemed as "scrapbooking
stamps," so I keep them on my desk in hopes that I'll remember to use
So that's my little scrappy corner of the world. Thanks for stopping by
today! You can visit me anytime at

This doesn't technically qualify as new content, but I was playing around with Wordle for a class assignment today, and thought I'd see what it came up with when I typed in my blog address. Pretty cool, if you ask me.
So,yeah. It's been a while since I've posted here. I have these visions of posting great stuff at least once a week, then life gets in the way and a month and a half goes by before I find myself here again. Last month I was a guest poster on the MemoryWorks blog, so that's where all my new content ended up. This month? Well, let's just say that taking a technology class AND a reading comprehension class is about to do me in. But this too shall pass, and soon I will be free to happily post away again. Famous last words and all. :)
