We've been living in this house now for almost three months and I've finally just settled into my scrapping space. Being in the basement, this room tends to be cold and not very inviting, so last weekend we finally went and bought a space heater. What a difference a little bit of heat makes!
I've spent a lot of time reorganizing my stash and my work space. Being the uber-organizer that I am, I like to keep things sorted and stowed away in boxes and drawers and storage containers but I realized recently that this is not always conducive to scrapbooking because I can't see what's available to me and seem to forget what I have. So, I've changed tactics and have tried to surround myself with as much of my "stuff" as I can - out in the open, right in front of me, where it's visible and easily accessible and will inspire me to be more creative.
I feel very fortunate to have this cozy little space to call my own! I spent some time down here today creating this layout:
This photograph of my brother, Andrew, and myself was taken by my father back in the 70's when he was doing a lot of photography. He would take us along when he went out taking nature pictures and we would explore and have fun just doing what kids do. As I was organizing my paper stash I came across these sheets of MME paper from four totally different lines. I loved the way the colours looked together so I went searching through my photos to find something that might work. This picture was just perfect!
I used sketch #144 from Creative Scrappers.
Until next time...
