Hi everyone! Janey here... What's a Creative Friday without showing you where I create? First I've been asked to introduce myself to you. As some of you already know I began my journey with MemoryWorks in 2006 as a consultant and am excited to be on my 5th year as a TeamWorks Member. I am a mother to four beautiful grown daughters, and grandmother to the now “eight is great” wonders of my world! I have an eclectic style for scrapbooking with family, my pups Caesar and Dexter and my surroundings as the sources of inspiration. I've been married for over 33 epic years to my “Hunka, Hunka”. I live in a small town near Lake Tahoe. I have a passion for scrapbooking that originated when I was a young girl. I have always been sentimental and a hoarder of craft supplies! My hobbies outside of scrapbooking include photography, biking, cooking, sewing, and painting! I love everything about MemoryWorks… the wonderful products, awesome customer service and a very supportive online community. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to explore my creativity here and to be a part of such an amazing company. I am thrilled to be making new friends who share my passion for documenting their lives through scrapbooking, paper crafts and altered art.
I feel extremely blessed to have a husband that feels that I needed my own space to create. My space has evolved since we moved in four years ago. Of course like every crafter out there, I acquired a lot of product over that time and recently had to add some Ikea shelving and drawers and that cute cart to hold miscellaneous products that I'm currently using. The project table is from Pottery Barn a few years ago and has lots of storage. I've tried to come up with some creative, unique and practical ways to store or display my "goods". I have an old bubble gum dispenser for antique buttons, a tool chest for stamps (and of course tools), and a fruit stand for my baker's twine and ink. I have lots and lots of paper so I have it organized in different sections of my space. My Stickles are displayed on the base of an old scale that I just fell in love with. I collect old camera's which are also displayed around the room. Of course what would a creative space be without a bathroom (at least a sink) so I don't have to go to far to clean up my creativity. Even the striped paint in the room is fun! Last but not least is a little area for my "four-legged children". They are always joining me in my space. Here is a glimpse of my crafting space, where I paint, scrap, sew and just enjoy!
Thanks for joining me today. I'll be back next week to share with you some of my favorite current products and a few samples of how I used them! Until then, I'd love to hear how you store and display your products!
Keep on Scrappin'
