I used to have my scrapbooking stuff hidden in my closet. Every time I wanted to make something, I had to pull everything out of the closet, work on a little table for a while and then, put everything back in to the closet. I got tired of that. I wanted to have my own space to make a mess when I felt creative. I decided that the only place I could use, because our house is kind of small, is the loft where my computer was on a big desk with a big chair. I started by making a sketch, then looking for furniture I could use and afford. I ended up buying some furniture and storage boxes from Ikea and some scrapbooking cubes from Michaels.
This is how my Scrap-Space looks now:
I love to work here. I like to keep it clean when I am not there… but when it is time to play my table is always messy :).
