My name is Grace and I am inspired by an old scraproom challenge I participated in last year (the 28 day challenge) to organize, decorate and clean up those scrap areas. It seems there is no such challenge this year and I would like to step up and take the lead since I have a new home and my first scrap room not corner or closet to decorate and to set up.
We will begin Feb. 1st 2010 it will end when you have a more beautiful and functional space. It is just for fun and to make scrapping easier.
Who would like to join me in this project? The lvl of commitment depends on how much scrap stuff you have. Here is what I will put forth to help you along the way.
1) One weekly organizational project
2) One weekly creative project (mostly decor or alteration and others)
3) Two or Three Mini Weekday Challenges
4) Fun and inspiration with everything from room colors and decor to organization and storage options ON A BUDGET!!!
5) Encouragement to finally get things organized to make it easier to scrap!
To sign up you will need to do/answer the fallowing:
1) Name/user name
2) Type of scraping area (closet, corner, room etc.)
3) Your biggest problem area that is hard to keep organized
4) The link to your new album to keep your pics in (create a new album in your gallery to upload all of the before and after pics, ingenious ideas and problem area pics)
So come and join me in cleaning up our areas and making the scraproom a place that will inspire creativity and allow us to crop till we drop.

Before By Scrapbookingteacher
length of scrap area after challenge By Scrapbookingteacher
I have part of the basement. I share the family computer and tool space with my husband. I need to screen it.
I must work to store more things in waterproof boxes. I keep moving things around. I need a place for works in progress.
Still working on it all:
Grace/Hanging by a Moment
Keeping My Table Clean
My Scraproom 2010
Small Scrap Corner
Nati/ Mrs. Tristan
It started off as a converted closet and a corner and now it's 3/4 of a room!
MY SCRAPTABLES!!!! I can never see the surface!
Small spare room
The whole room is in disarray.
Half of an office
Keeping the scrap table cleaned off.
Long closet in basement
Where do I put it all???
Keeping My Floor Clean
My Scraproom 2010
My biggest problem is storing all my pics and trying to keep my supplies from spilling out into the living room.
What do I really need? What do I want?
I have my own scrapping room that I've been organizing for the last 6 months.
My problem is that as my embellishment collection grows, I don't know where to put things. This photo shows my brads, flowers, chipboard, ribbon, and much, much, more...loaded on top of the orginal organized items. I usually find an embellie that would have been perfect for a lo AFTER the lo is finished. I'd like to eliminate the clear cropper folder.
1/2 of the back porch
My counters and work area
(I will get this done when I get home tonight or tomorrow)
floor & surfaces are the main problems- I am organizationally impaired. I have spent countless hours "cleaning my studio" but it always comes back to this mess.
table, finding new homes for things
Sue/ MeMaw's Treasures
1/2 of my bedroom
Working space, I have two desktops designated for me and one 2x4 table for my sis, her DSILD & DGS (sets up a TV tray)
1/2 of a room
Having and finding a home for everything
I share an open plan area with my hubby and my kids ... it's a multi-purpose space at the top of the stairs ... tv watching, x-box playing, computer space for the kids ... home office for hubby and scrapping space for me ... quite a challenge!!
Hard to keep organized, desk isn't big enough and I don't have enough space for my stash ... takes me forever to get a page together at the moment because I have to hunt for everything!
* Operation Creating Space * - photies coming soon!!
Upstairs loft/office space.
My stuff is stashed everywhere and I forget what I have.
It's a Hot Mess!
I have a bedroom that is my Scrap spot
Too much stuff (I am a packrat!), and no place to put it (storage/organization)!
Amanda/ Scrappin Kitty
Room that I share with my bedroom closets, and my buisness
all of it, it's a new space & the storage/ work area is not really working for me because of 6 windows and no wall space
Candace/ Candace M.
Corner of the family room
Biggest problem area that is hard to keep organized: Ribbon - I currently have about four different methods going on.
Link to organizational album in my gallery:
floor & I share with my 8 yr. old
My scrap happy sunshine room
I have a corner of our great room right now.
Keeping it all clean and my other pet peeve is that I keep forgetting what all I have
Making it work for me...
finding a "home" for all my goodies
A wall and corner in my bedroom, Also 2 storage cabinets in my front entry way.
Keeping my stuff in a small area, finding a home for everything, staying motivated to get it all clean and having my scrap stuff blend in instead of taking over my whole Place.
Room, will have a different room when we move it.
Scrap Table and no extra area for zones like cricut/ sewing/ embossing
AuntJo's Scraproom Makeover album
My scrap area is a portion of a room (less than half)
My biggest problem: Keeping other things out!
biggest issues: ribbon, the fact that I have no space and am scrapping literally out of totes, and what the do with all the layouts I have completed until I can afford to get albums, and more protectors for them.
My whole space
I have too much and not enough space. I am a scrap hoarder and can't throw anything out. I also had an online store and have acquired more than I care to admit.
I have a shared room with the dining room, so my scrap stuff takes up a good portion of the room, but it still needs to function as a dining room, though it hasn't for a very long time! LOL!
Paper, loose embellishments.
My Scrap Room
I have 1/3 of our bedroom, not huge but ok.
Not having enough space on my desk...having to store so many other things in the bedroom too...keeping the dust at bay.
I have too much stuff and have now added my treadmill and exercise bike to my room.
Scraproom Makeover Challenge
My workspace is in the corner of my living room and it flows into my dining room at times.
I have a difficult time organizing paper, embellishments and my tools. I want to be able to access them all easily.

My spare room
My old scrap room became my family's dumping ground. I am getting ready to move but must sand,stain and paint before I can move my things in.
