My scrap space is in a corner of our loft on the second floor. The loft contains my space, the washer and dryer, the computer and a place for the boys to play.
In December, one of my x-mas gifts was some much needed shelves. I can now safely store my books, supplies and desk. With a 2 1/2 yr old and a 15 mo old keeping things untouched is a concern, hence the gate.
Some of the best advice I received is to keep all your favorite scrap supplies within arms reach of where you work. When I organized the shelves, everything got a drawer or bin right next to my desk.
However, I don't have enough room for the future. There are some albums that are empty but I'm not sure where they will go when I have pictures and layouts to put in them.
Someday we will paint this room and I want to put the words 'live, laugh, love, scrap" above the shelves too. Someday.
