This photo is taken from my kitchen across the lounge room and in the background you can see the double doors to the study. The beauty of this room is it is part of the main living space but those wonderful doors can be shut and no mess can be seen.
This is my side of the room. The room is a essentially a home office or a study. It wasn't built as a scraproom as such but is PERFECT for that purpose.
And this is the little girls side. I do love having them so close. They do homework here, colour in, paint when I am not watching. My 8 year old has decided to start scrapbooking, she has a page in progress about her first best friend. They each have a magnetic board from KikiK for notes. They are learning French so there are some words on the cupboards and no room would be complete without a Sharks poster! They have a cupboard each and everything that comes home from school goes up there for me to sort through at some stage!
As you can see I have pretty much everything close at hand. On the right is a cupboard where all my cardstock, pattern paper, magazines and other stuff lives. I do cull now and then. In the draws on the right I have all my pens, punches, adhesives, brads, trimmers, paper scraps...all the stuff I need to grab quickly. On the bench top I have a basket of letter stickers and a few embellishments, a box of "stuff" I am or want to work on and a photo box with all the photos I have printed. I never have more than what I can fit in the box but it is also never empty. Some of my albums are in the cupboards beside or above my desk and some are in the linen closet. My cameras all live in here in here too. Above the computer I have things like magazines, photos from Mum, some unused mini's, notes from any online classes.
I can see the TV from my chair and if I lean back I can chat to the Hubby. I do have a laptop I use a lot for digi scrapping and blogging so I spent more time on the couch than here. But I am planning a lot of non-digi pages once the WITL is finished. I need to feel the textures :)
It is not always this tidy but I have the double doors!!
Thanks for stopping by, I would have loved to make you a coffee, maybe next time :)
