Many have asked, so here are some pictures of my scrap room. I haven't had the chance to really decorate...because you know I had to be responsible. It's lame being a grown up, huh? The house needed blinds, a fridge, and a washer/dryer when we first moved in. Plus, I also bought my car during the same week. Eventually, I want to paint at least 1 wall Sweet Leaf (light green). I also have the Stamping Bella Sistahs wall decal, but I haven't put it up yet.
Here is my desk. I got it at IKEA. I don't have the drawers yet that go with this desk, so I have stuff stored underneath it. I keep my Nesties, paper, and acrylic blocks down there. On my desk, I have my Copics, sewing machine, my carousel, My Acrylix holders filled with 6x6 paper and my Cuttlebug. I store some stamps in my CTMH roller bag too.

I originally planned on getting a bigger bookshelf, but Brent and I decided to get 2 smaller ones. I'm actually happy with our decision. I'm just excited to finally have a bookshelf that fits my albums! I hope that this will motivate me more to scrapbook.
Since this is just a regular bedroom, I store a ton of stuff in the closet. The rack came with the house and I use the Clip It hooks to hang my stamps. I just slip them in a clear sleeve which you can buy from Clear bags. I organize my cardstock by season and then within each season, it's in rainbow order. Just easier for me to remember. I haven't quite memorized all of the SU colors and order yet, but the CTMH ones are second nature to me. I love having all the colors of both and Papertrey cardstock...as I can almost always seem to find something that will match whatever I'm making. Thank you to all of the generous Wish RAKers out there! I wouldn't be able to have all of the SU colors without your help.
All of the plastic storage was originally my mom's. I've held on to it this long and it's survived a roadtrip to Denver and then to Seattle. :) Here are all of my stacks of precut paper, envelopes, Amuse stamps, and extra stuff that doesn't fit on my MM embellishment center. I might just be like Lori and get another one. I only have CTMH ink pads and desperately need re-inkers now, lol.
Well, I hope you've enjoyed looking at my room. For those who don't have one, please don't get discouraged. Prior, Brent and I lived in a 624 square foot apartment and I stamped on an end table in the dining room that was about 14 inches by 14 inches. Jenn laughed when she saw it because she couldn't believed I made such great work in such a confined area. As long as you make your spot special to you, thats all that matters! And honestly, I miss being by the TV and the computer! :)
