My Scrap Box. I have had a million different scrap storage items. And most I would use for a short time, and then forget about it. But this one.. I seem to be using, and working out of much better, I have worked with system for almost a year now! This box I got at JoAnn's on sale. You can see it online HERE , it is called a Handy Scrapbook Carrier. (should have cleaned off my desk better before taking this photo... )
No longer do I save every little piece of card stock. I just don't end up using them, and then they takes up space. So 1/2 sheets, or 1/4 sheets of card stock are put in here. And I do use them - The box sits on the floor right at my feet under my desk. Before I get any new card stock out - I check the box to see if I have anything large enough to use. Best system I have had for scraps and I am thrilled that I use so much of it when crafting.
Now I also started this regular to my blog on Wednesdays to show things in "My Space" - things that make me happy in my craft room - Today I want to share with you one of my most treasured items. Hubby bought me this as a birthday gift a while back, we collect lots of different antiques.. paintings are one thing we both love - I love the look of mid 1800's art - the style, the peaceful feel of them. Hubby found this painting that we believe to be from about 1860 or so.... it became an instant favorite of both of us - it hangs just above our Computer desk in my Craft room.
You see why I love it so much? The frame is not perfect, but I adore it. And the subject matter... well hello - donkeys!! I just adore this painting. Just looking up from my desk and seeing it across the room makes me smile -
As I share some of the items I have used to decorate my room, you are probably going to learn a lot about me personally - hope some of the things I show in the future doesn't scare you about me.. LOL My room is "Me" and it really makes me happy to be in it. I have the bestest Hubby in the world to have built this room for me just over a year ago.. (can't believe it has been that long!)
How about if I do some candy today? Just a simple little blog candy - something easy to ship out and share with one of you... My Baker's Twine that I got last week!
