Nadia Cannizo has lovely blog candy to give away...and what we have to do is show everyone our scraproom/area. Luckily for me it does not have to be during or after a project.
Here is the corner of our living room.This used to be my daughters desk  I have added more shelves and an extra layer on the desk,with a bit of shelving that I found in the store-room,this give me some extra space.

There is an open bit of space above, you can see my glasses and a Fiskars punch  that is where I rest the lap-top when I stream.The gold vitamin bottle is watr for my  dirty brushes.
I am fortunate that I get  a lot of  natural light thanks to the 2 large windows,I have closed the shutters in order to get a better photo.
Please note the box on the floor with the brown paper(old for re-cycling) I am pleased to tell you that it is no longet there I have made a plan for well as some others...I will show you in a video next week...this typing takes too long!xa xa
I keep my ribbons and fibres in mens shoe boxes,they are bigger and stronger! You can see them under the desk

These drawers from Ikea are a life saver...I just swivel my chair to the left and my Big-Shot, flowers,  bling, pens, paper, punches ect ect are at hand. The big black boot box is full of  cardboard. (old)  Maybe I should move that too??
At this stage all looks well, should I add that I have taken over a large cupboard and that is where I store my paper and chipboard die cuts as well as some kits. I also  have a display cabinet from Ikea and that all the shelves have completed book on them too....and it gets worse...the dining-roon table is also often full of stuff,you know stuff drying or getting pressed or chipboard being cut.
I will leave you with a thought...this is my home ,my space and as long as I am happy and having fun...who cares if it's not spick and span and thank goodness I can work in a messy place,otherwise I would be busy tidying up all the time!
Be happy!
