Well...here it is...

I promised photos of my little scrap space, so here they are! :)

Remember, while it may not seem like a lot, it's mine, and I'm happy with it! ;) There's still some work to be done on it, but it's at least somewhat presentable, which may not be the case after I've actually scrapped something! ~grin~

Scrapbooking is so important to me. Something I never thought I'd say six years ago, but as I become more and more involved in genealogy, the more I realize the importance of it. Maybe not to the world in general, or even to ALL of my family, but someone, someday is going to treasure the work I've done, whether it's work that can be considered stellar or not. I know this, because history repeats itself, and I'm fasinated with the scrapbooks of my ancestors!

The cabinet that you see in these photos is one that William found for me at a used office furniture store. It was dirty, dusty, and had some kind of adhesive residue on the top of it. A little elbow grease and orange oil furniture wax did wonders for it's looks! It didn't have shelves with it, so William arranged for the store to give him some extra doors that they had and he cut and fit shelves for me. I love it! My little desk? A Walmart cheapie, of course. It's going to work for me tho, at least until I can get something better. I love my corkboard with the Prima flowers around it. Super simple, and maybe not the most artistic thing in the world, but I still like it. They're bright, happy little flowers, and it amuses me to look up and see them. And finally! I draped my ribbons over a dowel hung with cup hooks. I can see what I have and not have to dig thru a drawer for them! :)
