My Scrapbooking room...

When I sold all my stuff a few years ago i did hold onto a few bits, but only a few. 

I currently don't have many supplies in fact I actually ran out of pattern paper! I still can't even get my head round the fact that I ran out of pattern paper...but I m moving on with that awful situation and bought some more paper.


A few months ago I bought a desk...which everything fitted in to...then slowly I needed a box and then another box....I will not go on, your all scrapbookers you totally understand huh? Of course you do. Especially as I work in a place that sells such lovely stuff some times!

And then I kind of convinced my husband that as we didn't really use the conservatory ( who does?) I could turn it into a scrapbooking room. It doesn't have any actual heating...but when it is cold I have a portable heater that works just fine. 

Now.... It is a huge room...I don't have a lot of a small amount of stuff in a big room is a bit silly but hey as all of you know it will fill up fairly quickly? OH YES!

I have spent as much time as I can on it , between sitting down ( I have a rheumatic illness...the doctors are still not sure what it is but my whole body hurts most of the time...good thing I have something to do when I need to sit down huh)

Anyway, here is my current room...I am sure it will change and grow over time. My computer is acting funny today and has edited all the photos a bit wouldn't let me change them and I really couldn't motivate myself to go back and re photograph them all again!!! ha!

Here is my drawer unit...

I bought this shelf form B&M for £ was perfect. I loved how it was all on different levels and sizes. And I love how bright and colourful all the different paints make it look.

 This is the other side of the drawer unit.

The boxes hold my scrap paper and card and the top one holds my gems...They are really empty at the moment...but ready for when I have more to put in them.

And well...washi tape has to be on something pretty huh.

The drawers underneath mostly have sewing stuff, material, felt, cross stitching. But the top smaller ones are where all my embellishments go. I scrap by I keep all my embellishments in colour as well. I did this last time I had a room and it worked brilliantly so I just did that same again.

I have a book case next to my drawer unit...which holds lots of different things.

My pattern paper packs...

Some of my paints and bits and pieces for painting.

And who doesn't need pretty feathers on show...never sure how I am ever going to use them...but I found them at work and had to buy them.

We move onto my desk area next...I like where it is so I can see part of the garden...the rest of the garden goes down the side of the house. Sitting here with the doors open in the sunshine as I have been doing today is just wonderful!

My white metal drawers that I got from Ikea...It holds my wooden embellishments and my sticker letter and my thicker like letters.

My cart, that I love that I got from Ikea ages ago...It holds my stickers on the top shelf, middle shelf has stamps and inks etc and the third shelf are my only punches that I held on to when I did my big throw out.

And my is fairly small..smaller than my last one but it does the trick..I have all my pens glues etc on here.

Along the other wall is most of my things that are electronic.

It holds my tv, big shot , printer etc...only thing I hate is the fact that you can see lots of wires.... I bought my big shot from a friend from work the other day.

And here is the rest of my wash tape in a little house thing that I again bought from work....Not entirely practical but it looks pretty...I never threw any of my washi tape away.

Again sorry for the funny colour computer is doing weird things today...I think it needs to be looked at by my husband! I have no idea about computers!

Thanks for looking...
