Hanging By a Moment

Hello everyone!
Welcome to the third Annual (twice hosted by me)28 day Scraproom Makeover Challenge!!!!!

My name is Grace and I am inspired by an old scraproom challenge I participated in two years (the 28 day challenge) to organize, decorate and clean up those scrap areas. It seems there are quite a few of you who have participated in the past interested in cleaning up those scraprooms once again.

STAY TUNED FOR MORE "BEFORE" AND "AFTER" PHOTOS!!!

_________________________ _________________________

TIP OF THE DAY #6 ( Page 37 ):


TIP OF THE DAY #6:

Remember, you are only as SHARP as the edge of your scissors.

Clean and sharpen often. To clean, use rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball or Q-Tip. To sharpen, use a sharpening tool for best results.

For decorative scissors or paper punches, use several cuts or punches on aluminum foil and follow with wax paper to keep them from sticking.

Dust and clean your cutting machines and paper trimmers often. To keep a sharp cut, replace blades as often as needed. Keep extra blades on hand for this purpose.

Don't be a DULL scrapper, get the POINT?!!


PAST TODs:
(#1) - Search sites like free cycle and Craigs list for furniture ... might find some free or cheep that can be painted. ( Page 4 )
(#2) - Save containers that are trash to reuse for organizational options( Page 9 )
(#3) - What do you need on your desk or within arms reach? Making the list... ( Page 11 )
(#4) - Lets think about labels... Label your world! ( Page 20 )
(#5) - PURGE PURGE those photos!!! ( Page 37 )
(#6) - Be the Sharpest Scissor in the Box - how to sharpen your tools. ( Page 45 )

http://www.scrapbook.com/myplace/index.php?mod=gallerie...

15. Daisie4100
Room (big upgrade from last year!)
My desk...it is a dumping ground for everything. I can't seem to put things away once I'm finished with them! I also hate my storage. Everything is open and seems very cluttered to me.
Here is my album from last year that I'll use again.... [url=http://www.scrapbook.com/myplace/index.php?mod=galleries&u=4 64229&a=228537&pa ge=1]Scraproom Makeover 2011

16. Brittany/californiaphoeni x
I have a room now! Though that may change at some point this year.
My desk is the worst spot. When I just had a corner in a room, everything was in arm's reach and it was quick to put something back right away. Now my desk just collects everything I've used since the last time I cleaned it. It's driving me nuts!

17. Sabrina/scrapinbabygal

18. Stephanie/ stephie056
Half a room for now
My desktop becomes a dumping ground and gets trashed between every project!
I will get pics & an album set up asap

19. Katie/kdinsmore
My own room, 11'x 9'
I have some piles from when we moved in 8 months ago I want to remove and I also have a basket of unsorted items.
I posted some pre and post-organization pictures a few days ago, and they are in Scraproom 2011.

Piles on the floor/keeping my desk free of clutter!

Room - a finished upstairs bonus room with sharply slanted walls
I currently have very little storage space which is a huge problem. I also only have one small surface area on which I can work.

22. Pam / lots2scrap
1/2 of my sitting room
I need to "see" all of my stuff so end up with clutter everywhere

23. Siimplicity/Christy
I have about 2/3rds of a computer room...trying to figure out how to just take the other 3rd!
I struggle most with all those "new" purchases I've made. They end up in a basket and probably don't get used as much since they get buried under the piles of "newer" purchases.
Here's my album from last year: http://www.scrapbook.com/myplace/index.php?mod=gallerie...

10 x10 room with closet (used to be a 3rd bedroom)
Since I just moved to this house, I'm starting from scratch in the organization process of all my 'tools' and 'supplies'.
Madeline's scraprm. (before)

27. Hilda/hildamor
I have a small room with built in cabinets, which take a lot of space because they're are about 24" deep leaving very little space for desk/table, etc and a lot of wasted space within as most shelves are not adjustable.
My biggest problem area is definitely my desk/work area.
I will be creating a new folder for pics in the next few days...I've never uploaded any photos to a challenge so I'll need to figure out how to create the folder, etc.

30. Pam/ Timelyteacup
I have a small scraproom (9x12) that I want to work on for this challenge, I have my stuff pretty well organized but my problems are keeping my workspace cleaned off and I need to add some inspiration and art to my bare walls... here is the link to my album with some pre-challenge photos:

31. Wendy / mommystamps
Finished Room in my basement
The room in general --- (Because it's closest to the storage areas of our basement my area tends to be the catchall for the junk that needs to go to storage!)
Working on getting my album up and running...

32. Janet/BamaBug
My colors are purple, light yellow and black
The room is a small bedroom, about 10 x 7 (with new carpet!)
My style is a little of this - little of that
I love scrapbooking

33. Celina/forevervampress

My desk is always overloaded with stuff and my closet is a disorganized mess.

36. ScrapSimply
SB area: 4' x 4' corner of MBR
Biggest problem: I really need more horizontal workspace and a small amount of taller shelf-space -- how to solve this problem w/no budget, and/or work around it in the meantime
Link: once I take pics of my "new" (old writing desk from Freecycle) desk and the rest of my storage, I will post it to my Gallery (which is small, so you won't have trouble finding it).

37. Mandy/scrappy_lassie
4' x 4' area in the living room
My biggest problem is getting started on turning it into a scrapping area. In the process of finding storage and getting supplies to fill it! (I'm brand new to this.)

38. Beth/bakscrap
unfinished basement
photos/layout ideas
http://www.scrapbook.com/myplace/index.php?mod=gallerie...
Guess I'm a little late in getting started!

Hi there Grace!

I just set up a new album! Clean, fresh & new, I say!

I'm already so very excited!

I recently switched from the smallest room in the house, to a much larger space.

For the most part it's set up, however, you know me, I see projects galore as I look around.

So much to do & so little time!

How is your new space working out?

Did you ever finish all your major & extra detailed paint jobs at home?

Well I have painted one more room after the Scraproom but then we installed the hardwood floors our selves, built a rather large pergola for the patio this summer and such. Now that the holidays are over I shall start painting once again! I have some ideas for the kid's rooms, the laundry room and our master suite. Oh and then there is the Mural in the kitchen.. LOL.

You got a bigger room! Grats! How are you liking living there? Been a couple of years now right? Can't wait to see your space, you always have such great ideas for storage solutions.

I've been able to keep my room fairly organized for the most part. My paper storage isn't working out so well, so maybe I'll participate for that. Of course, if I just went through it and destashed it probably wouldn't be as much of a problem. lol.

Or, you know, if I actually scrapped as much as I buy!

I'll fill out the other stuff later. I made a conscious effort not to participate in any challenges this month so as February nears I will get you the rest.

I am looking forward to doing this because Lord know I need to do something with my Scrapping Corner. I am also looking forward to getting to know others and learning some organization tricks and storage.

I made an Album to keep my Pictures in but I can not figure out how to put them in the Album so I made a like to my Scraproom Tab.

If some one can tell me how to do the Album and pics to the album it would be greatly appreciated.

OK just completed my post. I am so excited to do it again. I love how you helped me with my room last year. It works as far as scrapbooking. The exercise equipment is giving me issues still. It is too hard to access the scrapbook stuff in my closet, and I am not facing the tv when I work out. Maybe we can come up with a solution. I recently just altered my chipboard letter holder and still have ribbon and material from last year to alter more. Painting wont be in budget, but I already told my husband the challenge in 2012 it will all be about painting.

******WAHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!***********
Count me in! I'm so excited!!! We bought a house last year, so I actually have my own space! You guys got me started last year, and I haven't stopped the OCD, ingenious, creative organizing. Since I've been in this mode all year long, I'm not sure how much I will be able to change stuff around, but I'll definitely be here stealing ideas and offering my own. I CAN'T WAIT TO GET STARTED!!!!

I'm Vicky/vh678
I now have a WHOLE room dedicated to my crafts! It's about 10x10 and 100% mine! (a little possessive eh?)
I can't keep my desktops clean. I focused on making so much more of it, but that just means more to clean off... :-(

I can't wait to get started! Thanks for inviting me, Grace!

TJ and Niqui welcome!!! This group usually is fun and it is very nice to have minds to bounce ideas off of. I will try to do a through job informing you all of several ideas of how to organize one type of thing. We are all different and what works for one won't work for the other. I would have to say that in the past years we have probably come up with 3-7 different ideas for each type of items you scrap with. We will cover many things ribbon, adhesives, paper, stamps, punches... and much more.
