question of the week: do you think the size of your stash affects your creativity?
It is not the amount of stash that affects me but the disorganization of my stash.It was not done in the way that I scrap. Hopefully it will be when this challenge is over. I will try to post pictures tomorrow. I have never done this so it may take me a while to figure out how to do this.

I am finding that I am somewhat relieved that I do have a sizable stash! LOL, b/c I live where there is no LSS, only a smaller M's and a smaller J's. My J's recently moved and really improved the scrapbooking section. BUT without my stash I would have no ability to be as creative as I can be know that I have a better idea where everything is! I feel that I comfortably have about 70% of my stuff organized and it does help, and I am thinking about redoing a few things this round.

Time to go scrap!


Goal for 2013 To scrapbook 1 Layout per week = 52

'12=60, '11=103, '10 Unknown but not many! '09=89, '08=198. '07=148

Question of the week: do you think the size of your stash affects your creativity?

Absolutely. In some ways it's a good thing because there are embellishments that will add to my page/project and I wouldn't have thought to purchase them. However, the more I have to choose from, the harder it is to make a decision. My biggest problem in this area is with patterned paper.

Scrap Fairy Vision

My room will have an overall feel of cool serenity with clean, simple lines and plenty of white space. Sophisticated with a touch of funky in purple, lime green, black and white. The walls are a muted purple, the moulding white, and the floor a dark scraped hardwood. The furniture is black with neo-classical details, an old dining room table for a desk and a china cabinet for scrapbooking storage with the doors removed. On each side of the window is a super comfortable and sleek chair, with a table in between and a mirror on the opposite wall to reflect the natural light into the rest of the room.

I only have supplies that I love and will use. They're well organized, very easy to access, but not too visible and with labels as needed.

BRAINSTORMING

Photos and Negatives: I love the system I have set-up for my printed photos, I just have to finish implementing it. And then scan all of my favorites and other people's photos so I can return them. Then I will need to scan all of my negatives. I don't expect to finish the scanning during this challenge, but I do want a system in place.

I'm working on one for my digital photos and will need lots of advice. The most important factor for me is backing up the good photos, the next is deciding how to organize all photos, and I also want to make sure they're available to friends/family online.

Alphas & rub-ons: They were stored in an accordian folder but the smaller packages were hard to see that wayy and they were sorted too much. Now I have them in a plastic bin but they fall over and it takes a long time to go through them. I think a clip-it-up would make them very easy to store and view, but it would make them exposed and I don't know where I'd put it. If I get my china cabinet maybe I can make a pull out version of the clip it up in one of the lower cabinets.

Patterned paper: Is organized 1) by theme 2) by line 3) by color scheme. The problem is those that don't fit into any of these categories. Currently stored in CH vertical files by main color but that is one too many different places for me to look. First, they can use a good purging. I'd like to include them in the basket that contains the paper by line and color scheme. Would more available color schemes help?

Decorating: Craigslist for a dining room table and china cabinet. Would like to take off the legs of table and replace with the "X" design found in neo-classical style. Buy the china cabinet for the wood, size & layout. Can remove top doors and make shelves adjustable. Remove moulding and bottom doors and replace with style I like. Refinish in black. Would love to add built-in hanging file folders that pull out when I open the (bottom) doors. One for patterned paper and one for page kits.

Lighting:

Additional Work Surface: Will need to wait until have new table so the dimensions work together. Build in wood, the top a rectangle, the legs straight and tapered, on wheels. Paint black.

Trash: Build trash can in wood to match style and paint black. Four sided, wider at top than bottom, with plain moulding to frame each side. Square footed base. Make it tall enough to hold a tall kitchen garbage bag. Add wheels so can move around the table/room with me? Store in corner underneath paper towels?

TV Area: Buy extension cord & attach up back of shelving. Wrap all wire and secure.

Little Things: Buy a black veritcal paper towel holder and secure in nook by desk. Move all bags into closet, hang on wall? Put magenets on cutter drawer so that it stops opening on its own.

Other Crafts: Will there be room in the china cabinet for my jewelry supplies? If not, will need an area to store them. Have too many general crafts for when young cousins come over based on how often they come over. Just went through and took some excess Easter supplies and made kits for the residents at my nursing home to make cards out of. I'm very excited about this! Do this with all general crafts, put in a seperate box and take to work.

Closet: Label shelves (not individual boxes). Go through current project boxes and be ruthless. If not in love with any more it needs to go. Choose 3 projects and finish during this challenge. 1) Zach's pants 2) Mosaic clock 3) Jen's book for Ben

QOTW: Does the size of my stash reflect my creativity? Great question!

My stash is SO BIG that it reflects the creativity of Nichol Mcgourick or Jennifer McGuire or May Flaum or Nic Howard or perhaps all four together However, it does reflect my happy, creative feelings and ideas I just cannot execute that well or produce that much

I have spent the whole happy day in here. Made some tags from instructions from the online sewing class I am taking with Julie Fei Fan Balzer - check out her blog love it. She teaches for Live With Prima also. I made a card and almost finished a layout. I got sidelined and then DH did not do the dinner dishes but he did make dinner

QOTW - I do think my creativity is affected by the size of my stash. I find that the more stuff I have, the less work I actually get done. I get overwhelmed by all the stuff and the many choices. I like to keep things simple.

SCRAP FAIRY
My dream scraproom would have baskets, lots of purple, a clutter-free work surface, current projects easily accessible and organized, built in oak furniture, L-shaped workspace, room for guests, supplies labeled and easily accessible, ability to scrap at home and away, recently completed los displayed. I would love something that looks like THIS (the first office space display). She did say to DREAM!!

SCRAPROOM PICTURES
My before pics are the ones I took at the beginning of round 2. My space looks pretty much the same, just different stuff on the surfaces. Although it looks the same, it is a little more organized and I know where to find more stuff. Here are the before pics of my scraproom.


Leisa - GO VOLS!

Completed 2010: 85
Completed 2011: cards - 16; los - 70
Completed 2012: cards - 26; los - 36
Completed 2013: cards - 13; los - 20
Completed 2014: cards - 0; los - 14
Mar goal: cards 0/4; los 14/4

I agree, having too much stuff is overwhelming and often when you know you have it and when you want to use it, you can't find it. I need to find a better way to organize and also reduce my stash.

question of the week: do you think the size of your stash affects your creativity?

OH yes! And then some. When my stash was overflowing with stuff I knew I'd never use, it was dragging me down. Then it wasn't just the size of the stash, it was the disorganized mess of it too!

Question of the week: do you think the size of your stash affects your creativity?

Of course it does! In a positive way, though. While it is overwhelming to look at all that product, I find that if I just go thru it a little at a time, say one Art-bin at a time, I find that the projects and pages are already in 'kits' of sorts, and all I have to do is print the photos for that idea.

It is the 'what else can I add to this page to make it better?' mentality that gets the best of me. I constantly over-think embellishments, because I have so many choices. So, now I'm going with the 'it's okay' philosophy, I learned from Ali E. during her 'Week in a Life' class. I pick out one or two possibilities, then go from there. Whatever I pick, I go with it, then 'Let it go'.

My paper piles, on the other hand, that's a different story. I love paper. Ask all the LSS owners I know, and they will tell you, "Lisa? She loves new paper lines!" Anyway, I've been sorting paper here for the past three challenges. I will probably be sorting paper during this entire challenge, as well. I'm okay with this, because I've seen an increase in my page kit production. Now, if I could only find the time to scrap with those kits! LOL Maybe if I spend less time on 2Peas? Nah...

Scrap Fairy Vision

In a perfect scrap world, I'd have a room full of organized product, a dedicated scrap table with room for friends, and an endless supply of energy, creativity, and inspiration to complete page after page of scrappy goodness.

Judy, thanks for the list!

QOTW: Good question. If I can't find it, I can't see it to use it. In our last house, I had a small corner of our bedroom for scrapping, so most of my stuff was in boxes, tucked away in one of several different locations. If I have to do that, then I tend to forget about my stuff. So keeping my stash small would have been the key. (I didn't. Need I say more?) I have waaaayyy too much paper, and that definitely does hinder my creativity. It's a little overwhelming.

Scrap Fairy Dreaming: At the risk of sounding like I'm bragging, I do have a dreamy space now. I totally acknowledge how lucky I am at the start of this. It's not necessarily the space "of my dreams," so I'm still going to do a bit of dreaming. My dream space would have a transitional sort of design - not country and not modern, in other words, but in between -- with wood furniture and cabinets with straight lines. Hmm. Not sure if the wood is painted or just stained. My walls are probably painted a light grayish green, a calming color. I'd have tons of natural light and windows with windowsills large enough for plants. I'd have a sink -- and a coffeemaker! Lots of cabinets, some of them with doors, some open shelves, and a big workspace with room for both a desktop computer and my scrapping stuff. But the dreamiest part of all would be that it's a separate room, with a door that I can close behind me once in a while and come in and forget all that's around.

Brainstorming: My problem areas identified in Week 1 were acrylic stamps, pens, ribbon, buttons, and chipboard and board books/projects. In my perfect space, when I'm working on a project, I can find the right acrylic stamp right away... Right now, my Tim Holtz, Wendy Vecchi and Technique Tuesday stamps are organized in binders that are located in two different spaces, and the rest of my acrylic stamps are still in my "old" system of using empty CD cases, stashed in a bin on a different shelf. Pens, ribbon, buttons, etc., are in similar situations, with some organized one way (one rack of buttons by color, for example) and some in another way (a large container with tons of different colored buttons). I want to have an organizing system for each of these things that makes sense for all of the different types of things within that category, if that makes sense...

I posted a link to my photos last week, but here's one photo that shows the cabinets and shelving before I started moving things in. I should have taken a picture of the hallway where all of my stuff was stacked, waiting to go into the new shelves!

Judy- And I thought I'd have trouble keeping track of everyone last challenge? Wow, that's quite a list. Thanks for doing it

Alrighty then, it's almost noon...I need to work on some pages today. Too much pea-surfing. Later!

question of the week: do you think the size of your stash affects your creativity?

Definately! I am a tool junkie, and I like having a lot of different tools to help create my pages. The problem with having too many tools, though is too many choices. I am trying to solve this problem by choosing one specific tool and learning (or re-learning) how to use it again! Also, I think my organization might need to be tweeked a bit to make my stach easier to access!

Brainstorming.... If I walked into my dream room right now it would have french doors coming in and would have a large window looking out to my back yard, maybe patio french doors there too. there would be lots of space to walk between the different stations that would all be free of clutter. I think my space would have a shabby chic meets mountain cabin meets french country living room feel to it. I could easily see all my supplies. My stamps would be so easy to reach for that there would be no reason not to use all of them. There would be one wall where I could display my painting and plenty of other areas to decorate. In one corner I would have a seating area with a bookshelf in between two comfy chairs where I could get inspired or visit with hubby or a friend.

QOTW: my stash does affect my creativity, its either a mess and I become unproductive or looking at it sparks my creativity, but as most I probably have way more than I need, I think its time for me to challenge myself into a non spending challenge until I have a certain amount of stash gone or so many projects done.

Jen- this is the point I'm at. I've tried non-spending challenges before, and while it lasts only a brief time, I do get a lot accomplished.

When my Scrap Fairy comes she will bring me a room twice the size of what I have now( 9x10 to 18x20). It will have one door way, a window and a nice size closet with shelves. The walls will be a soothing lavender. Beautiful custom made shelves and cabinets, that are organized and labeled. My workstation will be L-shaped and the floors hardwood.

Reality: Room size 9x10; 3 door ways and a closet door-which leaves very little wall space. A floor that brings tears to the eyes. Dark wood paneling on walls and no window. It has 2 work tables a computer hutch. I like my tables not crazy about the hutch.

My problem with the area is that I was storing everything I own for SB in there. It made me feel so closed in. So I am going to set up storage in another part of the house(guest room) and only keep what is necessary in my work area. I hope to paint the walls and cover the floor.

Now I am going to see if I set up a link to my pictures:

I agree with several of you ... it's not necessarily the size of the stash, it's whether you can find what you're looking for.

I was at a crop this past weekend and packed my usual bunch of page kits and stuff. Even though I wasn't feeling very inspired (wicked head cold), I was able to do almost 20 pages!! Well, with everything done but the journaling The point is that it was really liberating to just work with what I could see.

I still (even after a couple of rounnds) have no idea what my dream room would look like ... I definitely have to work with what I have (walls/floor, no cabinets or room for islands etc.), but other then then wanting the colour green, I really have no idea. I think I need to spend a weekend state-side shopping to get some great decor ideas ...

Talked to my DS today about my moving into his room and he into my office and he was sad to lose his room. He likes being upstairs with the rest of us when we are all here. Well I couldn't argue with that. So my dream room...I have no idea but I think I need kitchen cabinets in my office or something like that. Not sure. But this room at least works pretty well even after only doing one round of this challenge

Off to dream about redoing this room...

QOTW: Yes and no. I was very creative when I had very little, and am now when I have to use what I’ve got at crops. However, it is so great to know that I have whatever I need to do whatever layout I want…yet I still find myself buying more! I m another yes vote for its not what you have, but knowing what you have and being able to find it.

Judy- Thanks so much for the list!

Leisa- love the dream space. I am totally jealous of how clean your space is right now!

Rnhmom/Ann- Love the shelves! We’ll help you fill them!

Addicted/Gina- LOL! I have only 2 walls and one of them has a window, so I feel your pain! You’ll figure it out! The hanging shelving has lots of potential! Also, be careful what you wish for with a bigger room. Personally, I’d love a ginormous room, but only if it came with a maid, as I am a very messy scrapper, no matter how much room I have!

Kris- congats on the 20 pages! …its that journaling that is always the stickler though! Hope that your head cold gets better!

Susan- Awww…He’ll get over it. You could even offer to paint his room like when he was a kid. Congrats on the larger scrap room! We will cheer the move with you!

QOTW-I don't think it affects my creativity in a negative way. I don't feel overwhelmed by my stash, in fact, I enjoy shopping my stash when I'm scrapping. I would just like to have it more organized and labeled.

Question of the week: do you think the size of your stash affects your creativity?


For me, it is not the size, not able to find what I’m looking for that affects my creativity. If I’m in middle of designing a layout, then I want to look for embellishment I know I have but can’t find it, that what kills it. So by further organizing my stash as well as purging what I won’t use I can use up what I have and purchase what I need when planning my pages.

Scrap Fairy Vision:

Great lighting, openness, a lot of counter space to spread out. Available tools out when I need them and ability to clean up quickly and put away at end of night. Love to have a moderate size island to spread my projects out, have stations set up along wall, tv and internet access.

I posted the pictures of my room on my blog. (below my siggy)

Do you think the size of your stash affects your creativity?

Absolutely! I have a big stash, which hinders my creativity now because it is so unorganized and I am unable to find what I want to use. If I can get an organized space I think having a large selection will allow me to always have what I need to make my page or card exactly what I want it to be.

My dream space

My dream space will be organized and efficient, but also really nice to look at. I would like most things to be in containers so the clutter is not visible in order to create a clean, simple space. I would like to be able to grab photos, find matching paper and embellishments quickly so that I can be ready to actually scrapbook and be creative rather then spending time searching. I would love to be able to scrapbook when I only have a short amount of time. I would like to have black and white furniture and lime green and blue accents. It will have enough space for both my sister and I to scrapbook. It will have a dedicated space for my cricut and my trimmer to be out and ready to use when I need it. It will have an area for my kids to be able to sit and visit, or even do some craft projects or drawing along with me.

Which is a good thing just thing of all the ideas we can come up with together.

Yes, and I'm totally looking forward to it.

I definitely think the amount of my stash affects my scrapping. I have far too much stuff and don't know what I have. I'm a visual scrapbooker, so it's going to be tough to organize it all in a way I can see. But I know I can do loads better than what I've got now.

Once I take pictures of my space, I'm going to be one of those folks that makes all of you feel better about yourselves. LOL.

QOTW- Oh, I've absolutely found that having a ton of stuff hindered my creativity and productivity. I know it isn't that way for everyone, but when I have too much, I tend to get overwhelmed. Yet I can't stop myself from shopping, so what's wrong with this picture?

What's interesting about my current space is that where I'm actually putting pages together is in a different room from where I store my PP and embellies. So I find myself reaching for tools- stamps and punches, mostly- b/c it's more convenient. And I'm liking that. It forces me to be creative. But the downside is that my pre-made embellishments are gathering dust!

Scrap Fairy- Gosh, even daydreaming depresses me a little b/c I am so far from what I want, and what I want could be YEARS away at this point. We're a military family, usually opting for military housing since we move so much, and space is always at a premium. We can't get anything larger than a two-bedroom since we only have one child, and most military units aren't exactly spacious! lol

But this question is about dreaming, not reality. So here goes. I imagine my space being one that is organized, but obviously used and lived-in. I see a paint and ink stained table, a large one with tons of room to work on. Vintage boxes and tool caddies to hold my most-used items. Tons of PP storage, since that's why I buy most of and can't seem to purge. Storage for my wood-mounted stamps that is visible b/c I love the look of messy, inked up stamps out on display. Clear stamp storage that is organized and makes things easy to find. Primary colors b/c that's what I love. Either a wooden or tiled floor. A small area with a cozy chair and some magazines/idea books. Both a stand-up workspace that is large, and a small sit-down space as well, for page planning. (I like to sit down when I do page kits.) Some way of listening to my iPod via speakers, and a TV with plenty of chick flicks on hand. Lots of windows.

Okay, so that's the idea and unlikely to happen for a LONG time. More realistically, what I want so badly is a scrap table that is NOT in my laundry room. lol Even though it's working for me, and I do scrap there plenty, I really want a bigger table with lots of storage. I'm planning on finally getting it when DH gets back from deployment this summer but it's soooo hard to wait sometimes!

I'll post my brainstorming later. I haven't thought that far yet.

HELP!!!! the week for paper is approaching fast and I just submitted an order for PP that was eligible for free shipping.

Well in my defense I am blaming all those wonderful Allison Davis sketches that called for stripes and then more stripes, the 2Peas videos, and of course a MSB full of enablers.

qotw: I think my stash does. When I'm low on paper I feel like doing less, but when I've got a full stock..which I'm pretty close to now it's fun and exciting to play with.

Scrap Fairy: I'd have more table space, 1-2 more under the desk rollers, and some baskets. I love having everything on the table in front of me or in reach when I'm working otherwise it'll never get used. The printer would be wireless and on a small table stocked with printer paper and cardstock for easy printing. I'd have a 2nd cardstock hopper on my desk to hold the colors..while my main one would be fully stocked with White, Black, Kraft, and Butter Cream. I'd have a small bulliton board to stick reminder post it notes, magazine clippings, new products, and my to do list on.

brainstorming: I can fit another under the desk roller under the space I have now, but I'm not sure how I'd full organize it yet. I someday can afford my dream printer, but until then I'll try to push it over more onto DH's side of our wall of desk. I'll remove things that don't need to be on the desk. Maybe I can even get DH to mount my monitor to the wall and add a small shelf for my lamp and Mac Mini to sit on. I also plan to buy one big photo album that can hold 300-400 photos that can hold my current plan to scrap photos and a couple of boxes for the photos that I know won't get scrapped.

My scrap Fairy would bring me a Rosie the Robot to keep my room clean. The rest I can live with!

good afternoon ladies!

am i the only one that has a fairly clean and organized scrap room? lol... aside from my current ribbon project, my room's immaculate.

on a related note, i stopped at target over the weekend and got a few more baskets. i needed one for border punches. oh, and i also stopped at m's and got two martha stewart punches. then, ofcourse, there's the two peas order that's about to be placed. shh... don't tell s/o. lol...

ann - love the cabinets!

judy - awesome list! thanks for saving me some work.

susan - sorry ds isn't being cooperative. if it's any consolation, s/o is never going to get my enclosed porch finished w/ as much as he's been gone.

have a nice night everyone!

Judy - hasn't that storm been around your room for awhile

Crisann - my room is clean too. Only problem a delivery came today and I joined up at Studio Calico. Kit and an add-on and some goodies come tomorrow. I think once I unpack Judy's storm will head my way!

Jen and Addicted - we have nobody to blame but ourselves

All organizers Jennifer McGuire posted a great solution to storing thin steel dies like spellbinders, Paper Trey ink etc. She adhered magnetic paper to the inside of a door of one of her storage unit and put the dies on there! Scroll down toward the bottom of today's post to find the picture. Link to blog

Finally getting around to joining in on this one. But heck, it's only Tuesday, right?

question of the week: do you think the size of your stash affects your creativity?

No not really. I think having lots of stuff allows me to be more creative actually. Maybe I don't have as much stuff as everyone else? I don't seem to hesitate to buy stuff though!

Brainstorming: Well, really my space is pretty good for me, but just needs tweaking. I mean it's not fancy, but it's not bad either. If I could have anything I wanted, I'd really prefer a whole new house!

Currently, I'm trying to decide if I want to organize my ribbon by color and hang it from rings. I just separated my flowers by color and put them in glass jars. They look so pretty!

I'm also trying to figure out if I want to put pegboard under my wall shelf. I don't necessarily need to hang more tools or anything, but I would like to use it to display finished pages for a while. But maybe there's a better way?

I'm hoping to put some additional pictures up on my blog tomorrow. http://paperpauper.blogspot.com


I do have a question for everyone though. I keep seeing that people want rooms with lots of windows and natural light. Am I the only one who has found that their papers fade dramatically when the light gets on them? (or maybe you all are better about refiling your papers than I am! lol)

Judy, thanks for the list of all of us! I have to print that out.

Ann - what a beautiful room!

I actually like the amount of space I have - about 8'x10' - it's cozy. I just wish I weren't in the basement with the furnace so I guess I would ask the Scrap Fairy to move all my stuff into my sons' bedroom once he finishes grad school/gets a job/moves out. It would nice to see daylight

As for the question of the day... my problem is I forget how to use what I have! So I don't use stuff... I have embossing stuff, paint, chipboard... and it's a pain to pull out all the stuff to use with these supplies. Hopefully I'll get over this!

Thanks, everyone, for compliments on the cabinets. Believe me, I'm filling them!! I've scrapped out of a cramped, dark little corner of our bedroom (no windows, and dark walls) for a very long time, so I can't wait to get settled in this space. For the last year (since moving into this house), I've been working in that space with an old desk and a couple of bookshelves... and I didn't take pictures because it was horrible. Now I wish I had taken some so that I could look back on the amazing transformation! The space is open to the rest of our "den" area in the basement -- tv area with a game system, and a bar/kitchen area. So I need it to look presentable because lots of people come in and out of here, and I don't have a door that I can close to keep the eyes of the world out...

Sandra, for me, the issue about light is that it's just so much easier to see true color with "real" light, and I feel different --more creative or something -- with a lighter space. My cardstock is along the wall in horizontal trays, where it isn't exposed to direct sunlight, so I'm hoping that it will be ok. PP is tucked away in a cabinet.

Carie, holy cow, I'm so impressed with the detail in your list! I get overwhelmed when I'm faced with a large organizing task, so I have a hard time making a complete list.

Leisa, I love that desk and workspace, too. I really like having some cabinets that can be closed!!

Lisa, come on over!

Michele, I love all of the light in your space! Wonderful!

Cristi- Glad that your room is mostly organized! I guess that the wookiemouse plan is working. Mine is getting better….sort of… LOL!

Susan-Thanks for the link! That is a totally cool idea!

Paperpauper/Sandra- no worries, I usually don’t get to the post until Tuesday! It takes me that long to figure out what I am doing with that week’s theme! LOL! As for windows, not essential. Walls would be nice, but windows are not needed as I usually scrap at night once the kids have gone to bed!

Judy- Im not sure if I am in a storm or more of a snowglobe. It seems that once everything gets settled down, than I start a layout and everything gets all shaken up again!

Week 1- check! Actually I can't even remember what week one was, something about what works/what doesn't... Everything was completely torn apart by then though. So moving on...

Week 2- Brainstorming

ETA: (I forgot to post this weeks challenge)

Question of the week: do you think the size of your stash affects your creativity?
Not really. The biggest problems were I could never find something, it took to long to find it, and my work space was just too cramped.

Scrap Fairy Vision
I am going for a tropical feel for my room... I have a bunch of those 50's pink ceramic flamingos, and a 50's flamingo mirror... They are the inspiration for my room. I have two oak pieces that will be staying, stained wood, and I am going to get black expedits. I also have a black metal bookshelf that will be staying. Also trying to incorporate the current storage items, striped bins in khaki/lt green/lt turq. blues/and cream, and some cream colored bins. I also have various baskets, wood, dark aged wood, green/turq/varying shades of pink. I am hoping the pops of pink will really add some interest, and not be an eyesore. There isn't much pink compared to the other colors... I currently have a broken green shade on my window, so I am thinking of making my own canvas roman shade and painting on it. I guess I am trying to go for the breezy, airy feel, and the only reason I am ordering black expedits is because they will be paired with the black metal bookshelf, should I get white instead? Somehow black doesn't seem light and airy! The walls are currently white too, not sure if I am going to be able to paint or not, but I would love that lt blue/green/turquoise there. If it does get painted though, it would probably be something more neutral, like the Behr Gobi Desert in my Living Room.

Back to Brainstorming:
Mainly for me it all comes down to the size and efficiency of my storage, and the size of my scrapping area. I just finished mapping out the new space... I built a spreadsheet with an aerial view of the room, a front on view of the storage pieces, and an itemized list for everything that will go in/on the expedits and shelves. There are still a few areas that are bare, but I'm sure in the tornado that hit my room I have missed something. The other thing I did that was critical for me is I left a space to put leftovers after I have completed a layout...once it fills up, then I will have to put away. It is just a basket that will sit in my work area, but for me, it is so important to have that. I don't want to have to clean up after every LO, maybe every week or month, depending on how much time I actually spend scrapping.

Can't wait to get my expedits! My DH said he wants to build the exact same thing, oh, but we'd have to buy some tools. DUH. When has a project not involved getting at least one new tool for him. I will have to wait and see if the gov. shuts down this weekend, got my taxes e-filed this am, but I may be too late! I will be one hot mama, let me tell you. And I bet they sure won't stop taking the fed taxes out of our checks, even though there will be no one there to process returns? Sorry, end of sidbar.

Good luck to everyone doing this challenge. It is truly just that!

Ann - LOVE your cabinets! I would love to have some built in cabinets like that, but it won't be happening any time during this round.

Judy - thanks for the list. Great to see so many newbies joining the challenge. And I've told you before that you've got to visit that room more often - it will keep the storms at bay!

Susan - bummer your ds didn't like your takeover plan of his room. I think you should at least be able to get some cabinets out of it since you don't get to move up.

Amanda - love Rosie the Robot. I have a Roomba - does that count? Unfortunately, Roomba doesn't put things pack where they belong.

YES! The size of my stash affects my creativity. I spend too much time looking thru everything to find the *just right* papers and embellies. On the bright side, at least I have alot of choices

My Scrap Fairy Vision includes a fairy that comes and cleans up after me. I love my space, I think the new shelving (that still needs to be put together) is going to make a big difference. As far as changes to my room, I wish the flooring was different, tile flooring-which is not good when you drop a glass jar full of buttons and the space could be heated. Oh, my fairy would also be able to give me unlimited inspiration.
