New scrapbook room

Buttons...tons of buttons!
These photos are in no particular order because it's late and I'm too tired to put them in a way that makes better sense, so bare with me...you'll get the general idea. I do however think it looks even better in person. I totally can't believe blogger let me upload all these pictures...so cool!
close up of my embellishment rack labels
my desk area...a view from the closet
cute key hole ribbon storage
twirly embellishment rack
the two little bookcases that I built. taken from my desk chair. That's the closet door. I have 2 windows now. I love all the natural light.
jars of markers and thread...they look pretty in jars
baskets full of reorganized wood mount stamps. I still need to make label tags for these. Notice my jar is FULL of candy cane kisses. I love the Americana paint can Heather made me.
a view from the door
flower jars and more ribbon...love them!

paint daubers and cardstock...love them too
my name above the door
fun stuff on the bookcase
Making memories shimmers glitters...you can see some of the quickutz as well...love them too...okay, so I love everything.
Barn pictures that Ellen took. I finally framed them. I SO love these!


every scraproom should have candy and mine has lots. These baskets have more stamps, ink, embossing powders, etc. Bottom shelf is idea magazines. Love my lamp and the heart that Andi made me is hanging on it. My rooster bell is on the wall to ring after each layout is completed. We all need to feel a sense of accomplishment, right?!
cute wood plaques with vinyl quotes
left side of bookcase. behind the licence plate is a file box that has my acrylic stamps in them...idea courtesy of Amy.
right side of bookcase
country cute shelf



12X12 pattern paper and some 12X12 cardstock. I will admit to using more Chatterbox paper than any other. I love it so much!
Standing under the TV
rack, tote, ott light, sewing machine to which I only sew on paper and an occasional costume.
jars of ribbon sorted by color, brads and eyelets
bookcase...it holds so many beautiful fun things.
I moved my cute outhouse cabinet to the bathroom because I plan to decorate it in an outhouse theme. For those of you who don't know me well, you can see that I really love barns and all things country. They give me comfort and make my room warm and inviting. I still haven't set up my "store" in the closet because Mark needs to bring home the peg board for me. This room is such a great size. I even have room to set up a 6 foot table in here to have friends over to scrap with me...providing I can get anyone to drive out here to see me. Okay...there you have it. like it? love it? hate it? not so much? :o)

LOVE IT! Wish my room was that big! Maybe someday, but for now just having my own room is fine with me (I used to be in the basement at our condo.)

What's your "store"? Do you sell product?

Melissa said...

Silly question - of course I love it! I'm just starting to get my stuff out and organized, and I have to share my scrapping space with my husband and daughter for our office!

You've been hard at work girl!

(whispering) WOW (like my 2yo great-nephew does when he's REALLY impressed) - that's a great scrap room. I love your organization and hope I can remember your ideas in organizing mine. Don't have quite as much stuff as you, but I'm close and I'm very impressed with how you've done it.

I second the question about the twirly thing. Do you mind sharing where you got it?

Cassandra said...

I am so jealous! I love not only the space you have to scrap, but all your goodies and decorating talent!

Chickenbells said...

Wow...it looks so beautiful in there, it's such a special place to create, you are so tallented! I am itching to get my hands into all the glitter (and the kisses...I'm running low, is it weird that I want to hide them in case people come over? Of course, the coconut ones are really floating my boat right now!)

Shelli said...

Your scraproom looks awesome! It is so organized and neat.

Meg said...

Looks fantastic! You have great space there. And, it's so organized! Love it.

homedaisy said...

jolene,
you remind me of a cheer we did in high school, here it goes: you don't mess around, huh uh. you don't mess around, no way. you don't mess around, you just, ooh, get down. seriously, i have lived here for two years and i have boxes of stuff...amazing.

Aaron, Kate & Will said...

I don't even know you and I want to live at your house!!! That is an incredible space. Do you have children? That would be an amazing hiding spot if it had a lock on the door! :0) I wish you many happy hours of scrapbooking!
