New and Improved

I just wanted to post the before and after photos of my scrapbook space, which I am very proud of. I have actually been able to sit at my new desk and work on albums. Everything is within arm's reach, and it is all very easy to tidy up when I am finished. My computer desk still needs a little work, so I didn't include it in the photos.

Major Flaws: Cluttered, no room to actually work, very hard to dust, organized chaos

Good Points: Simple, sparse, most things are put away, space to work, easy to keep clean, nothing under the desk

Major flaws: Again, a clutter-magnet, always looks like I am in the middle of something and had to leave it suddenly.

Good Points: Memorabilia is out on display, eye-catching, easy to use reference materials (my magazines, books and binders) are right there, current projects are on the right side.

I know this is late, but I am glad you are blogging again! I am really amazed at what you were able to do with that space. It's hard to carve out a little space just for yourself in small Japanese spaces, but totally worth it if you can. I made a craft area in a closet after we moved last spring and it totally made a difference. No time lost searching for items or pulling out my sewing machine and putting it away.
Good job Mande!
