my scrap space - Up and running!

Welcome to my scrappy place!  I've waited a long time to be able to set up this space and though it isn't 100% done, it feels great!  So, come with me and I will give you "the tour"!.

This is what you see once you've walked down the stairs into the basement.  I have these 2 tables set up in a L shape, with one against the wall, the other open to where the rec room is.

Hang a left and you will see this shelf and my 2 carts.  In the wooden basket sitting on top of the carts I have my punches that I don't have room for on the shelf above it.

Turn to your left again, and you will see my Cricut/sewing nook.  My hubby is building an open cabinet that will be mounted on the wall above the table for storage of albums etc.

I inherited this cut wire shelf stand recently. It was my mom's, but now that she has passed on,  and I have a great spot for it, Dad let me take it! :)  I'm not sure what will all go on it, but I am sure I will think of something eventually!

Here is a close up of this shelf.  My dad made it for me years ago, but I hadn't been using if for quite some time as I didn't have a place for it.  I painted it and am using it for my mists and spray inks, hanging my ribbons from it and have some of my punches on it!

Here is a close up of some more shelves my dad made for my mom when they lived in Alberta.  They were just hanging out in the garage now as they had no place for them.  I painted them white and use them for my Stickles, alcohol inks, embossing powders, and crackle paints.

Here you can see my clip it up, cutting center, and my MM Carousel.

Here is a close up of my working station.  I have my distress ink handy and my bending tools.  Its were the magic happens! The cute little bird cage I bought at Winners.  I have this vintage wooden crate that sits on the table in front of me where I store my inks, and on top of it in the wire basket are the flowers I've made, and of course Gypsy Girl.

These stacked drawers hold my cardstock and pattern paper.  The cute bear paper towel holder you see is something I made for my MIL  years ago when I did Folk Art painting.  I inherited it back after FIL passed away and MIL moved into a Seniors Care home.

Thanks for dropping in !  Next time bring your scrappy goods and we can scrap together!  As you can see, I have room for company!
