Scrap Tiffany Reveal and Challenge

This week's challenge at Scrap Tiffany is to use eyelets and brads! Email your submissions to before Monday. See the rest of the DT's work at the Scrap Tiffany Blog. Here is my LO -

In keeping with the challenge, I used a ton of brads to make this flourish. I used the backing from a piece of self-adhesive chipboard as my template.

Of course I also used some brads as flower centers. I just love these big fabric covered brads:

My New Digs

So, what have I been doing lately? Well, I decided to do a major household declutter, purge, and rearranging/repurposing of rooms (DH is SOOOOO happy to be spending his summer vacation this way, LOL). As part of the plan, I moved into a new scrap room! My old scrap room was originally the breakfast room converted into a crafting space (our kitchen leads to a separate breakfast room on one side and a separate dining room on the other side...we didn't really need two eating areas).

On the one hand I loved it because I was within easy reach of the kitchen sink and I could spread out to the bar and kitchen counters when I was doing a big project. On the other hand, I hated that it didn't have a door, which meant that DS's little hands often found their way into my scrappy supplies.

So we decided to convert the breakfast room back into an eating space, the dining room into a play room and the master closet into my scrap room. Now, I know what you are thinking...a closet?!!?! It's a large closet. I have two 3 foot scrap tables in there and still have more than half of the space available for storage!!

It's been a long couple of weeks, but everything is finished now and my home is the picture of organized Container Store perfection, which makes this neat freak very, very happy!

Here's a little peek into my new scrap world! I'll post more pics later.
