For now here are some pics of a layout that I did recently that I think you will like! I will be doing a youtube tutorial and/or ustream tutorial on how to make this soon so watch for that! And if I get enough feedback/comments on this I will also do a kit like this! So let me know if you like it! Its called "Dream: The Yellow Rose Of Texas" and it is a picture of my Grandma Cecilia who was called The Yellow Rose of Texas and who is an inspiration to me and to my creativity! She taught me how to sew quilts and dresses and things! And though she has passed away, I still have dreams about her showing me how to make my first quilt block or how to do a hem! I miss her very much and she is definetley where I get a lot of my creative and artistic drive! She taught me how special handmade is because it has love in it!

(p.s. I included a pic of a pea necklace because everyone at twopeasinabucket call themselves "peas" and I thought they should all have a necklace like this as a kind of uniform! :-) )

Ryan has painted the entire room, put up shelves, made me a desk and a paper tower and painted other furniture to go in the room and I have just started moving all my stuff in and organizing and decorating and it is looking fantastic!!! Although, of course it is still a work in progress, its already a huge improvement from what it was (check out the before and after).
I have also begun scrapping in there and that is so wonderful, to have a designated, special place to do my scrapbooking and not all over the couch in the living room or all over the bed in the bedroom. I have my own scrap/craft/sew room and it is so exciting!
To everyone out there, happy Valentines Day and I hope these pics of my room help to inspire you with your scrapbook space and if your hubby hasn't started one for you yet, show him this post and tell him to get on it! hehehe :-)

So this Tim Holtz Die Cutting Machine wont be out until July, but I already love it and want it so much! It is the cutest little machine that is shaped like a suitcase! It doesn't even have a name yet, but it will be a really awesome vintage suitcase die cut machine that can cut through chipboard, grungeboard, cardboard, and other thick material really fast which is so cool! You just run it through the machine, no cranking or any work on your part, it looks super easy and handy-dandy :-) ! Here is a video of Tim Holtz showing off the prototype!
Sorry its been a few days. I had to have an operation. Anyway, I am working on putting together my scrapbook room and I wanted to share some of the products and furniture that I have been getting together to organize and design the room.
So here are some items that I got from Micheals. They are having a sale on all thier scrapbooking stuff right now, including all thier scrapbooking storage (probably to make room for all the new product that is coming out). I think the sale only lasts til tomorrow though so, if you see this I would hurry on over there. Anyway, the prices were awesome!
I wanted to get a really great desk for the space, one that was big and had a lot of storage so I got these scrapbook cubbies, two paper slot cubbies, one four-drawer cubbie, and one three drawer (with one ribbon drawer) cubbie, and one desk top all from Craft Storage Collection which my hubby, Ryan, is going to put together to make one big amazing scrapbooking desk for me.
Then I wanted a good shelfing unit to put on the wall for me to put embelishments on so I got the making memories Embelishment Center. I also have heard so many good things about the making memories Desktop Carousel that I decided to get one of those too to put my scissors and adhesive and stuff in so that its close at hand.
And finally, as I was pondering whether or not to get more cubbies to put more paper in, somebody tipped me off that there was kids storage on sale for really cheap that would work just as well and so I got four paper slot cubbies from Kids Craft Storage Collection (which was all the ones they had left) that were on clearance for $9.99!!! They are white and green but all I have to do is paint them and they are almost exactly the same as the other Craft Storage cubbies but for less!
Oh and I also got some cute embelishment jars :-)
Here are some pics of the kind of stuff I got. I hope that this helps inspire you in your efforts to organize your own scrapbooking space! I know I'm really excited for my new scrapbook room and I will keep you posted as I put the room together :-)
