Going back to paper

Well, I'm going back to paper.
(I'm still going to do digi every once in a while;))
The reason I switched to digi was cause of my 19 month old getting into everything..:p plus I had no space and had to use the kitchen table and keep putting my stuff away etc...

So, DH and I are working on setting up an area in the downstairs bedroom for my dedicated scrap space! YAY! Not sure how long it will to take to set up, but I will post pics when it's completed!:D

Anyone have any suggestions on what I should include in "my" scrap space?
I guess as far as storage?
I have the basics, cutter, paper, scissors etc...I just have nothing to put them in? KWIM? On my lunch hour I'm going to AC Moore to check out what they have for storage/containers etc Wink I'm so excited!! I'm such a geek..LOL;)

I have a downstairs scrap space set up too. It is out of the way tof the kids most of the time, however sometimes I like to scrap while they are around. My kids love my collection of pens and papers, so instead of letting them colour with my special stuff, I have a bin of papers and pens for them to use for their "art." They love it and they are able to "scrap" too.

I am SO jealous of you ladies' getting a special place to scrap! I want to make one now! I have a whole upstairs in my house that isn't being used! I guess I need to do something huh?? Biggrin

I don't have any advice on storage. All I have is a little box that my first kit came in and another shoebox type box that I keep my scissors, pics, stapler, etc. in. See, I am NO help! Baby food jars are a great idea though. Too bad my DH threw them away less than 2 weeks ago.

I have three cropper hoppers for my 12x12 paper storage. I use flexible plastic file folders for my stickers. I have a pegboard hanging up and that holds a good part of my stuff. I should take a picture for you ....

Here ya go, just taken this afternoon. Normally it's not so neat, I usually have the black table covered with stuff. But it's been cleaned up for Katie's visit, as it's in our guest room.
