My Scrap Room

Teri Anderson over at Moxie Fab World asked to see our scrap spaces so I resisted the urge to clean it all up so it would look perfect for the photos.  The truth is, my room is a work room where I always have at least one project in the works.  I have been purging but I still have WAY too much stuff. I have a weakness for pretty things and paper, and stamps and dies and embellishments...lots of embellishments! LOL
So here it is -- the way it looked today as I was working on some pocket pages for week #21 (Yes, I am chronically behind) I was watching the Brazil vs. Chile World Cup match.
My husband and I used to collect shot glasses and dislpay them in these shelves.  The shot glasses are long gone but now they perfectly store my wooden rubber stamp collection keeping them in front of me so I can see them and remember to use them.

Here I have my working vintage typewriter that I often use for journaling.  I have other antique typewriters but this is the one that works.  My dream typewriter is a pink or turquoise one from the 60's.
I like to display some of my favorite pages and projects.  I just wish I could find more of the white scrapbook frames from Michael's.  They are VERY hard to come by.

Here you can see part of my vintage camera collection and the albums that are currently in progress on top of the hutch on my desk.  And you can see how messy I am when I work.

Here are SOME of my Thickers and a small part of my paper storage.  All my paper is stored in separate drawers by manufacturer....that is just the way it works best for me.  But I also have a few drawers by theme....boy, girl, birthday, beach.
Well there you have a small glimpse into my scrap room.  I did not show you my 3 birdies in 2 cages that share the room with me or my Ikea Raskog cart filled with my pocket page supplies or my photography station where I photograph my finished projects.  And there is also my numerous storage cubes and armoire....maybe next time.
Now I need to go back to work and complete week #21.....
