Recently I moved into a single family home; which may not seem like a big deal to some people but for me, who grew up in an apartment, it was a very big deal indeed. Here I was, with actual stairs inside my home that took you to a whole new level of living! And, if that were not grand enough, there was the basement below where I had my own private space to do whatever I pleased. Well, whatever I pleased was scrapbooking which is my favorite pastime when I’m not working. Scrapbooking is a lot of fun and actually very much a stress release as you’re focused on nothing else but the task at hand. But it is also very difficult if you don’t have the space for all the materials.
My basement area provided the perfect spot for scrapbooking. I put a big table down there and arranged all my bins of materials. And then I started really decorating the space to make it my own. I figured the kids had their own rooms, my husband was either in the garage or planted in front of his giant flat screen television he had so longed for and now had, and I was due a spot of my own. And so I decorated.
Before long, I had my little work area, a sitting area with some comfy couches, and some of my favorite artwork on the walls. But the best addition? The grandfather clock that I had been eyeing for months. I found it on this great website where they have all these great clocks including some of the coolest grandfather clocks I have ever seen. I choose a very traditional grandfather clock that fits perfectly in my work space and makes me smile every time I look at it.
