I was reading Somerset Studio & saw an add for the "Original Scrap Box" http://scrapboxusa.com
i literally stared at the page and had visions of an organized workspace, everything I need within my fingertips - and better yet - having a home for this magical land among the rest of my family in my house - hidden when it needs to be, easily disguised in my dining room!
Has anyone seen this thing? Is anyone lucky enough to *own* this thing? It looks amazing. I am surely strongly considering saving up for this thing. But it got me thinking - are there other things like this? What do you all use for organizing your crafting space?
If I get one, I want to go for the biggest one -the "Workbox" http://scrapboxusa.com/catalog/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=8:black-raised-panel&catid=6:workboxcategory&Itemid=60 ahhhhh it just seems too good to be true. It's like the unicorn of my craft world!
See, in reality I'd love to have a bigger house, so I could just have a room to call my own and make that my creative space. We do have 3 bedrooms and the third bedroom at the moment is currently an "office" (read: shit we don't know what to do with goes here) I've thought many times of turning this room into my craft room. It's small, but, I don't need much. I just know that if I do turn the office into my studio - I'll immediately get pregnant and we'll need the room for the baby. That's just how things go. Which is fine, I just, dont't want to bother because I know that's what would happen!
So, whatever I do it has to be as functional as possible, and also be able to work in my dining room. Right now my Buffet table, a vintage steamer trunk, and an old pharmacists table are in there disguised as decoration/furniture and packed to the gills with supplies. It's ok, but it's not functional.
