Moving My Scrap Space

My scrapbooking sale went really well, thanks to all who supported me. I was so happy to meet some lovely ladies whom I've only ever chatted with online. Most of my stock was sold, leaving me with about a box-full of odds and ends. Thank you.

I have been busy trying to clear everything out from under the house, so we are ready to demolish downstairs for renovations. My scrap room is the first to go and it's given me an excellent chance to cull so many products I've been hording and clear up the mess.

As you can see, it was a mess!! I took these photos after I had already taken a fair bit of stuff out, hence the gaps. Rest assured it was stacked to the rafters, before that!!

My scrap space has now moved into our master bedroom. When the renovations are complete, the existing kitchen/dining will become the master bedroom with ensuite. The kitchen/dining will be moved downstairs. The existing master bedroom will become my scrap room!! I'll finally have a clean, air conditioned space to have small crops with my friends in - yay!!

In the meantime, we have bought a huge book shelf from Ikea for my scrap stuff. We built it in the bedroom and it will never be coming out!! It weighs a tonne! It seals the deal that this will eventually become MY room!!

I have three empty shelves to fill with the last of my stash or to display layouts. The bottom five squares have slide out boxes with all my knitting yarn and half-finished jumpers in. I really need to finish though - lol.

So that is me for the moment. We hope to have everything renovated by Christmas. I'm eager to start and get it over with.

Thanks for dropping by and sharing my excitement!
xx S.

Hi Sara, I am so glad that your sale went really well. It was great meeting you, it was a pleasure supporting your little sale I had a ball grabbing all those great bargains! ;0) That bookshelf looks great filled with your scrapping goodies. Your old scraproom looks packed to the rafters now with having taken stuff out! LOL I hope your renovations go well for you. Sending Marty a big pat too! Take Care Cheers Annette

Great to hear your sale went well. Loving that bookshelf, maybe I should think about getting one to tidy up my messy lot of shelves.

Glad your sale went well. I actually purged and sold some stuff on ebay a couple of months ago (amazing what people will pay for stuff!). Can't wait to see the results of your renovation.

OMG that would have been a chore and a half. You have so much stuff. The new room looks great and will be even better when you have it all to yourself...
