Welcome to the jungle.

This room is the smallest in the house, but it’s all mine and having a “batcave” is a wonderful thing. So welcome to a visual tour! I realize I’ve never posted photos of the whole room, so here it is. All artwork on door is by Elizabeth, but Rebecca says she’s going to start contributing too.

My helper is excited to see me taking pictures in here. Now, I didn’t clean up and some stuff is still in progress/being moved, but it’s clean enough to get an idea of what it’s like in here. 3 work surfaces: sewing, crafting, computer

I’m using the computer desk shelf mostly for decoration stuff, but that might change. I keep my headset for skype and battery chargers and such on nails on the wall behind printer.

The view from my reading chair – which doubles as a movie watching chair. The bar stool you see barely gets used – I find myself standing to work much more often.

Another view from chair – this time looking out toward the door. The closet (closed) is still very scary. At the bottom of this picture you can see a glass-top table…

my mom left it here from the time she lived with us for three week. THREE LONG WEEKS. Why? Well we were all waiting on miss Rebecca to be born! Anyhow, when I started the major cleaning in here I rediscovered the table and the girls have been using it (it’s a tv-tray kind of thing) as a painting table.

thanks grandma!  FYI – they are into painting wood animals from the craft store. 50 cents – $2 and worth every penny.

Details, new projects, and semi-deep thoughts to come… stay tuned.

  1. Congratulations May! I saw that you are now on the design team for Girls Papery!!! So thrilled to have one of my favorite paper lines combined with one of my favorite designers! Looking forward to lots of wonderful ideas 🙂

  2. Hi May! Thanks for the great photos, I was just wondering what kind of sewing machine do you use (saw it in the photo) and do you like it? I’m kind of wondering if I should by a new one or have my ancient one serviced as it is out of commission. BTW… Big Congrats on the design team announcement! That is awesome!

  3. Thanks for the tour.

    I spent some time in my scraproom tonight. I am taking a Baker’s Dozen right now to get me in the mood for the Camp Scrap that I will be attending later this month and into July.

    Look forward to chatting with you then.

  4. Great space! You just might inspire me to take pics and share mine… I’m a little nervous about it all. Wonderful pics. Glad your kids are so into it!

  5. Love your room! Where did you find the CSI style tape that was on a door? That is cool.

  6. Hello, May, from Johannesburg, South africa– “met” you on the Paperclipping Roundtable and love having a peek at scraprooms, hence my visit to your blog. P.S. Hi to Margie– we had her here for a class in September 2008 and remember her fondly, especially when we cut into her gorgeous papers!

  7. That’d be HazMat tape from fire department. Husband brought it home as joke, I liked it. 🙂
