Hanging By a Moment

Hello everyone!

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.

Participants:

COMPLETED 28+ days of organization!!!!!

Tina/tbh823
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.

Di/DesertScrapper
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!

My scrap area is a portion of a room (less than half)
My biggest problem: Keeping other things out!

angi/ abbynormaloh75
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.

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 workspace is in the corner of my living room and it flows into my dining room at times.
