Organize & Decorating Party - My Scrapbook Room!

Over the course of several weeks. DH has helped me move my scrapbook area from our lowel level family room..

(Before)

I wanted to put up some shelves but we decided to wait to see if I would like this area...I found out that I didn't really like being downstairs...so we moved everything into the office...

We hung up three shelves..


For some reason, when we start moving things around, one of our cats is always with us, keeping track of what's going on.


And here's my work area now..


I organized and put everything in a certain area, makes it much easier to find things.


Closeup of the plastic containers on my shelf, I still have a few left to do.


And I separated all of my embellishments by season ..again much easier to find something instead of opening and closing every drawer each time I needed something.


I bought this sewing chest at a junk sale this summer, I'm storing my fabric in there.
Right beside it is a sewing machine we got at an auction for $3...I don't know how to sew anything other than a straight line...and that might be pushing it.


And I redid my bulletin board and haven't had a chance to hang much yet.
The storage containers came from Michaels...I bought a couple each week and used coupons or only bought when they were on sale.

I'm loving my new and organized scrapbook/office area...each night I can watch Nate Berkus & Oprah while I'm working on a project....

Thanks for sharing your photos! I love seeing other peoples creative spaces. I'm trying to get ideas on what to do with my craft room and I'm loving yours! I've been eyeing those Michaels craft cubes for quite awhile and you're just making me want them MORE! Super great job! (and I love that you have a sewing maching and don't know how to sew, that's SO me!)

Your space has inspired me to go clean up and redo my space! When I made my toilet roll album earlier this week, I did it in the kitchen because my craft room is in such a shambles right now. Gotta get it reorganized!

Looks great! I am still working on my space. Sometimes I think it will never be done :) Would love for you to link this up to my Thursday Linky party if you have time :)
