my new scrap space + a layout (pic heavy!)

I am so excited about my new space! I'm in LOVE with it! I love how everything is within arm's reach. I still have a little bit of organizing to do, and need to figure out what to do with all of my ribbon. Also need to get a different chair - I stole that one from our dining room.

First, here is my old "space." Crammed in the closet of Miles' toyroom. I had to dig everything out and put it away when I wanted to scrapbook. Huge pain = no scrapbooking being done!! Plus it just got to be so unorganized and out of control!

...and here's the new space!

Here you can see how it's in a corner of our downstairs. I love that I'm right in the main area. Miles can play or watch tv, or after Miles is sleeping my dh is usually down there watching tv/sitting on the computer!

And my new layout...first one in, oh, a year!?! After I took this photo I realized I need to date it. These photos were taken LAST March, as you can tell I'm way behind in Miles' album. Hoping to catch up soon! Oh! The clip on this page, is holding 3 more photos. I love to scrap in 8.5x11 but had too many cute pictures of him with this stick and couldn't decide which ones to use...and didn't want to cut any.

TFL! Biggrin

I love the new scrap space! What a great dh to let you put it in your living room! I love your lo, the kraft paper with the bright ribbon and colors is awesome! I'm thinking a bright red chair would look great there.

We bought it from Ikea - it's the Expedit Workstation. You can mix and match and add to it later!

Wow!! I loooove your space! That shelf rocks! Each cubby is the perfect size for craft supplies. What a great area to have it in too.

The layout is perfection! Love how you mixed brights with the soft blue and white polka dotted paper. So cute! Great idea to use the clip to hold more photos. So happy to see a layout from you.

Yes, that space is awesome! LOVE that storage thing from Ikea...and the black color and the matching desk. Very streamlined, which I love. Smile I have never been to Ikea, but everythign I see by them I LOVE, so I'd like to go sometime. Good for you for having a great space, it can make all the difference.

Awesome LO too. I love how you used a clip like that. So cool. TFS with us Ashley!

What a wonderful scrap space!!! I'm jealous you can be in the main area. That is one of the hardships of my room upstairs.

Cute layout. Love that you clipped on the extra pictures.

What an awesome workspace Ash. I have the same kind of shelving system from Ikea expect it is beechwood color and it is the larger one (5x5 cubbies). It is for DH's and my office so it isn't just scrap stuff. I have had it for 6+ years and it has gone through 4 moves without any problem so they do hold up decently. I love living 15 minutes away from Ikea, I got all my furniture there when I started college. I still have several pieces.

I too love that it is in the main area where Miles can do his thing while you scrap. I think the biggest reason I haven't gotten any scrapping in lately other than being busy is that whe Hailey came along my scrap room/our office was made into her nursery and the office was moved downstairs into our somewhat insulated but still unfinished basement. I get cold down there so I don't like to spend a long time doing anything. This summer we plan to finish things off which should help.

Love the LO, I think it is great that you put several photos on a clip instead of choosing between them.

Oh, nice space! I love it. I always get more scrapping done if my space is right in the main room. I don't like being all alone in a scrap room.

I love that layout too. Nice.

LOL! Yes, it actually is staying quite organized. I'm surprised! I think having a 2 year old around is motivation for that. I don't want any little hands grabbing things!

:notworthy: I just spent five minutes trying to find the little smiley that is drooling. That one will have to do but the other one would have said it all. Hugely jealous!!!
