Hello, Maja Fans, welcome to Maja Design blog today, and Maja’s place as well
I hope you enjoy visiting our creative spaces and like to sit in our sofa So far you have seen Jenny’s gorgeous room and Elena’s bright and cozy place – today I’d like you to invite to my small scrapheaven
My room is so tiny it’s quite difficult to take photos inside – it has only about 2 x 3 m – but I’m still so happy I can have it for my own! It used to be my kids’ playing room, but after the grand overhaul of our flat I got the chance to take it To save as much space as possible, we don’t have doors in most of the rooms, and so I have to struggle to keep my space rather clean-ish, in case somebody drops in to visit Here’s the view you get at the doorstep:
When you enter (which is about half a step forward LOL), you see a wall full of furniture to your left – there’s really not enough room to swing a cat Now I know what it looks like – plenty of stuff! But I like to store my embellies by colour, stamps by theme or category, papers by manufacturers, etc. – and that requires a lot of space and means plenty of boxes Here, for example, I store my stamps, stickers and some of the dies, and the boxes hold flowers:
Here’s the cabinet with paper embellishments, chipboards, Prima flower tubes and bling and ribbons in the small boxes:
Here’s my tool and paper corner…well. I’m a paper freak and just can’t turn a blind eye to a beautiful pattern!
And if you add to that the fact I design for several shops and manufacturers, who send you that many papers:
…then no wonder I need so many shelves and boxes
Now turn around and you have the working space. The drawers contain more embellies of every kind, but remember, I love detailed segregation, so there’s still a lot of space for more stuff
Above the desk, on the shelves, you will find my buttons, Stickles glitter box, small stamps sets in the black file binders and on the top shelf – my season houses I’ve shared recently and handmade gifts from my scrapfriends from around the world
Then you have metal and cardboard containers with various small embellies – for example, the reindeer boxes contain Christmas stuff And can you see those two vintage cars? They are…candy boxes, now filled with flair buttons and album metal corners
The right half of the desk with drawers beneath is my media centre I keep my inks, mists, paints, mixed media and embossing powders here. Here’s also the place for all “dirty” work, hence the craft sheets. The mini drawers are where I keep brads (again, by colour and kind, like crystal or pearls )
Finally, under the desk I keep scraps of papers – is it only me or is it normal not to throw away a bit of paper until it’s possible to punch a tiny circle out of it?
And so, here’s where I create and spend most of my time (as it’s also my business office ), often with my kids:
Thank you for getting here with me
I hope you enjoyed the visit – drop by any time!
