Hey Daisies!! I am excited to be on the Cocoa Daisy blog with my first post and a share of my humble scrap space!
I like to think I have every person’s scrap space. I share a spot in our basement common area and so I try to keep it fairly clean and most items hidden for when we have guests. I scrap on a fold down table in front of our computer desk and have a lot of IKEA items to organize my stash! It’s nothing fancy, but it is enough space for me to do what I need to do.
As you can see, I have a wall of EXPEDIT bookshelves from IKEA that house most of my scrap stuff. I have several baskets to house my DT goodies and paper holders for my patterned paper addiction.
My 5 yr old daughter likes to craft with me, so she has a small IKEA table to one corner… yes, on my dusty treadmill… *ahem* but that way we each have our own creative area 🙂
I have several things on my bookshelves to keep things tidy, including wicker baskets for packaged items and glass jars that hold twine, buttons, wood veneers and smaller items.
Although I love my shelving units, I could not live without my ALEX cart from IKEA. It is on casters and I can roll it where I need. It allows me a little more counter space and houses TONS of my scrap stuff, tools, etc.
I have several small baskets in some of the drawers to hold more smaller items like brads, tags and clothespins. It really holds a ton of stuff and the shallow drawers are just perfect for scrappers!
A few weeks ago, a friend of mine bought a shoe rack to organize her scrap desk – I loved it so much, I had to track one down myself for my scrap space. Now, it houses my Silhouette Cameo and my laptop, and allows me a lot more space on my desktop! It’s basically amazing 🙂
Thanks for joining me for my first post on the Cocoa Daisy blog and peeking into my scrap space!
