My scrap spot.....

I was very fortunate to redo my space at Christmas time. Previously I scrapped on a table and couldn't figure out why my back/neck always ended up sore. Then I realized it was because I like to stand while I scrap. So off to Ikea we went.....

The table is height adjustable, which is perfect for me! I desperately needed a bookcase to store my supplies in a relatively small space, and of course it had to look good. I cut about 1/4" off the Cropper Hopper vertical paper storage and they fit perfectly into the Expedit bookcase. The baskets are cool too, because I have quite a bit in the them, they hide the mess.

I love the shelf above my worksurface. Greg installed a few undercabinet lights on the underside. He also hung the way cute overhead light. My barstool height chair was the bargain of the century, I got it in the AS-IS dept for $26 (it was filthy). Nothing a little bit of Tide couldn't take care of. Greg says I smiled the whole way home!

I have all of my ribbon in jars, which means that if I see them, I'll use them. In the altered colander are some odds and ends, I love to dig through it when I'm looking for something. Just above my workspace is a bar with hanging metal baskets, I think this is my favorite part, just is soooo cool!

It was a lot of fun organizing all of my things, and I really wish I had more time to actually scrap in it! Heck, I just wish I had more time......
