and FINALLY....

drumroll please......

my new scraproom has been finished.... yes i have a few more things that need to find homes but i seriously have everything i now need right at my fingertips. Its not as big or as fancy as some of the gorgeous scrap rooms i have seen on the web but for the space we have here its just about perfect. I have a shelf for all my tools, and special little homes for my cricut and pazzle that i can now permanently attach to a computer instead of having to lift up onto the bench when i wanted to use it int he past. Its not until you empty everything out and then have to put it all back that you actually work out exactly HOW MUCH stuff you really have - or should i say, your husband SEES just how much stuff you really have - and then decides you really don't need any more.

Well anyway let him see it, as this was a great surprise for me when i returned back from CHA. Ok I kinda knew it was going to happen (saw what was going on in the garage) but i also thought it was going to happen on one of the past 4 trips overseas and little disappointed upon returns so this time it was so exciting to walk into my room and it actually be finished. Putting everything back gave me a headache and there is still so much to sort out properly. Those white IKEA drawers fit so much in though even the biggest punches i own which are pretty huge but they all fit nicely into the larger drawers at the bottom. And i have a massive box sitting here ready for the next garage sale of supplies i just don't think i will ever use.... do you ever wonder why you bought something in the first place. Looking at some of this stuff i certainly do.

Anyway i am so so so so happy with this room and so very proud of my hubby and dad who built it for me. They did a wonderful job and it the saying is so very true that the longer you wait the more you appreciate it and it is definately worth the wait.

Now that things are nicely put away i can FINALLY get on with some scrapping for me. Sorry nothing to show right now - have done plenty for Kaisercraft. If you want to see what we have been up to grab yourself a copy of the latest Q3 mag from your local scrap store.
