ck creative spaces & giveaway

I have to be honest here, I love, love, LOVE room ideas - make that creative rooms, and my heart is all aflutter! This new special issue from Creating Keepsakes - hitting the newsstands tomorrow - is chock full of inspiring rooms, organization ideas and cool projects to decorate your space with! And there are ideas for ALL room sizes - even shared spaces like mine. For those of you who don't already know, my craft space is in our master bedroom and it happens to be one of those featured in this fun new issue!

Wanna peek inside? Here you go!


You totally want this special issue now don't you? I have a special coupon code for the Scrap & Paper Shop which just happens to sell the Creative Spaces issue. Use code: SPACESBB - good until 5/27/11 for free shipping in the United States.

I also thought I'd share a tiny little change I made to my scrap space on Saturday. My room has places for all of my scrappy supplies, but all those papers and notes I need to deal with, new magazines I want to read, etc. - I've never come up with a good place for those items, so they end up on my desk right next to my computer. Not the best spot, and trust me, this photo is not the full ugly truth - this pile gets much bigger and messier!

I started looking for some sort of hanging file/paper organizers a while ago to move this pile of stuff to. I finally found the perfect system at Target from their Real Simple collection.

I hung them on the wall at the end of my desk so they will be within view and reach when I'm at my computer. Hopefully these babies will keep my desk clean, and I'm thinking I'll be forced to get through these items more quickly so I don't overload the organizers. We'll see. ;-) These cute little organizers would also make the perfect home for paper scraps or your newest scrappy supplies that you want to use right away.

Okay, I know, I know, I promised a giveaway. Creating Keepsakes has generously offered to give away one copy of Creative Spaces on my blog. Just leave a comment on this post, along with your email address (so I can contact you if you're the winner) for your chance to win, and I will randomly select one winner to receive this awesome special issue!

Only one entry per person please. You have until Friday, May 13th at midnight EST to enter. I will randomly draw one winner for this issue and post their name here on Saturday, May 14th. Don't forget to include your email address with your comment and I'll contact you if you're the winner. 

Good luck and have an awesome week!






p.s. Be sure to stop by the Creating Keepsakes blog - they are throwing a week long Creative Spaces party!

What a good idea about hanging your magazines -- I've got several piles a foot high 'cuz I can't part with them! This issue might show a solution for storing my many magazines!
