Our Beautiful World is at it again. This week's word prompt is Space. This is such a fabulous word as it has such varied and different meanings. Pop on over to see some wonderful photography from around the world. I'm going to link this photos of my ScrapBox as this is what I immediately thought of when I heard their word prompt.
I live in a small house (1640 sq. ft.) by most American standards. I've been questioned by many - why not move to a bigger house? Certainly there are plenty around and available. We've lots of reasons for staying where we are, but mostly it comes down to my husband and I which are homebodies. We like where we are and don't see a reason to change. However, with two children in such a small, three bedroom house, storage is a problem and I am papercraft supply addict. Thus enters the Scrapbox. The only open space that is not in use is in the living room and so I needed something that fit into the decor. This cabinet is perfect.
I no longer have craft storage anywhere else. All my sewing supplies are inside this box. All my supplies for kids crafts are inside this box. No more hiding places, just enough space to store my tools and supplies.
Another great thing about my ScrapBox is that I know where stuff is. There are labeling places on each bin.
The simple fact of the matter is that my ScrapBox is equal to the kind and customer-oriented service provided by the folks over at The Original ScrapBox. The prices are not small. However, this is a piece of furniture in my living room. Paper crafting and all other sorts of crafty stuff is a part of who I am. I will always accumulate some stash of craft supplies, whether they are properly organized or not. Having my stash organized and available, yet shut away for Sunday night Bible study is part of what allows me to create beautiful cards and other crafts on very short notice. From that standpoint, I consider the cost of my ScrapBox small in comparison. Check them out! The Original Scrapbox.
When you are done checking them out, stop on over at Our Beautiful World to see all the lovely photos of Space!
