That's how I feel...something is wrong with our internet service in this whole area for the second day and I can't log onto my email account. We were also without electricity for about 4 hours Saturday night and so I did what one does by candlelight...I scrapbooked. I was supposed to be cleaning my scrapbook room but it was a little too dark for that. We found a kerosene lamp in the basement...it was pioneer scrapbooking! I started working on my Germany scrapbook and am happy with the way it's turning out. I'm using a Heidi Swapp clock overlay for defining the structure of the book. I got the main dividers done for each of the places we went on the trip. The photos will go on pages in between.
I spent most of the day Sunday cleaning my scrapbook room to make it camera-worthy for Lisa Scott to come and film. She came this morning with a cameraman. My room hasn't been this clean for a LONG time. I moved the piles of stuff that is in every corner into the bedroom so it wouldn't look too cluttered. Now I don't want to bring the stuff back in! I need to do some serious purging and never, ever again buy a single thing (yea, right!) She interviewed me and is going to use pieces of it on probably three different days next week on Wake Up! on Channel 4 in the 6:30-7am segment. I had the cameraman take our picture but my camera was acting weird so this is the best picture we got.
My room is a tiny kitchen that is attached to our master bedroom. It was an in-law apartment at one time. We gutted the room and installed cupboards from Home Depot and Target. It really makes use of every space! I even made sure there was room for a dorm size fridge in the cupboard under the sink. I ordered the wire display grid and hooks online from a merchandising site because I have to see what I use. I also love the narrow drawers for punches and scissors and stamps. They are 5" sock drawers from a closet system at Home Depot. Here's a few pictures of my space to document this moment of clean!
