So let me introduce you to my Shan-Cave, located on the ground floor of the Guest House. I am lucky enough, for now, to carve out a little piece of it for my craft room.
This room is pretty much a homage to Ikea. 'Cept for the curtains & chair pillow, I think every piece of furniture and storage came from the big blue mecca. The curtains & pillow, which I freaking adore, were picked up on clearance from Pier One.
So mostly, this is home to my little scrapbooking business. At our old house, when I scrapbooked a bit more than I do these days, I used to keep things out in the open because if you can't see it, you forget it's there. I went with a little cleaner approach this time around. Before I start any scrapbooking project, I go digging for the supplies I may want to use and lay them on my desk. Then when I'm done, everything gets put away. It makes for a very happy clutter-despiser Shannon.
Ikea is my most favorite place for storage.It's so freaking cheap, I don't mind picking up 8 or 10 different size boxes. And they're cute too, right? Nevermind the fact that they take 6 hours to put together...each. I've got all the time in the world and Ikea knows it. So now I've got a place for everything...stamps, glues, inks, fabric. The big boxes store general craft supplies like glue guns and popsicle sticks and fishing line.
