Scrappy Makeover

*Posts will be shared on my other blog*

I have been an organizing fool.

One room at a time.

Sewing Room….Complete

Next room….My Scrap Space.

My Scrap space was organized pretty good…until I reworked my sewing room:).  One of the major causes for re-doing this room was the table that I used to scrap on was actually my cutting table. Once that table was moved I had so much space open I needed it left room for me to regroup and utilize that space much better.

Plan: Purge, Donate, Steamline and Organize

Purge: Gather all the supplies you don’t use.  I really wanted the supplies to go to someone who could use them not just the thrift store.  I had mentioned my purging at the office and my coworker suggested her daughters girl scout troop….perfect!   Well it took almost a 2 weeks to purge which ended in 10 bags of donations to the Girl Scouts!!!!



This room is actually the mud room but serves as a great crafting space.  It can be a little chilly in the winter though so I added an oil heater to the space.  I wanted this room to be bright and crisp so the color scheme is Navy, Kelly Green and Aqua.

As you walk in the room I have all my punches on the wall.  I used Bygel Rails and Basket system so that everything is visible and streamlined.  I saw this on AtHomeWithNikki in her craft space.






At the base of the punches are all things related to packaging and shipping.

Backup Trimmer

As you scan the walls I added pegboard which is a great way to organize and see what you have.  I painted the board with the teenie bottles of craft paint from Michael’s in the Apple Tart Colorway. I have my magnetic role and my Craftsheet at the top, Thickers, Dots, Twine and Stencils.








I originally wanted to add my stencils and thickers to a binder but I find that out of side truly is out of mind.  So I am pleased where they are now.

I hope you have enjoyed the first segment of my scrap space I am really pleased with how it turned out.
