My Own Space (to be!)

Taken from my handy iPhone.

The computer is finally working and hooked up. Thought I'd show you the 'before' pic of my craft-room-to-be.

Please excuse the mess. But I'm super excited about this room as I've never posted about my work space before. That's because I never had one! See the bins?? I always worked out of them.

And the small clear ones with purple tops? They currently hold my stamps.

Am thrilled to finally have a scrapbooking room. Today, I googled 'scrapbooking room furniture' on my phone. Good Lawddddd!!! :)

Anybody out there have better tips?

To tell you the truth, I'd like a room that is inspiring but doesn't quite look like a scrapbooking room.

I love April's studio here: (these are her pics and are from her blog)

And Lizzy's (this pic is hers and from her blog)

I love where her ribbons are kept and those cabinets!

I need to call back my painters and re-paint my room those colors -- robin's egg???

I would feel so inspired and relaxed with that color! Problem is, my room would be right next to the living room. There is no door, just a doorway and so, the color wouldn't match the living room decor.

Ok, I'll shut up now. I know there are worse dilemma in the world right now. Am just grateful for our new house!

Maybe I could paint one wall ????? :)

Speaking of supplies and inspiration, did you know about the 1000 sheets of paper blog candy from Amy?

Click on her name for more info!!!

Rinne - I wish I was so much closer to you; I'd totally come help you paint & watch Mattie while you took the needed time to set up your all-for-you space just so! I'm so very excited for you!!!

I'm so excited and happy that you're finally getting your own room! :) Whatever color you paint it, it's going to be fabulous because it will be YOURS! Can you believe it!

Don't forget to invite me over to play sometime! *lol*
