Okay ladies time to organize and make over your scrap space! Big or little, a lot of stuff or a little, time to clean up! Don’t forget that today you need to take your before photo(s) but we won’t be posting them until the end.

Each day of the challenge there will be a new post regarding some aspect of your space/supplies/decor/etc. in addition to a few field trips. At the end of the challenge when you post your space we’ll also have a questionnaire for you to answer to help guide you on your tour, here are some of the questions so you can keep an eye out for these items…


What is the oldest item you found?
What is something you found and completely forgot you had and can’t wait to put to use?
What is something you found and completely forgot you had and can’t believe you even bought in the first place?


Additionally, set aside any supplies and such you might find and no longer want or have use for as we’ll be addressing those later

To get us started, today’s topic is dream rooms! Here are a few photos to help inspire us to get our spaces clean, organized, and creative… and of course to drool, dream, and think “one day…” over… Feel free to add your own

These spaces are really pretty!! Maybe I missed it, but what is today's challenge? Just to take a picture of our current space and find what we want our space to be?

This is going to be kinda hard for me because I know that my current space is going to change in the next six months.

I think that every scrapper would love a space like that. I saw this & think it is great for small spaces. I don't know that I will ever have my own room for crafting, but that set up would be pretty nice.

Today is just a day to get ideas, take your photo, decide the extent that you want to make over your space, etc. There are 18 days in this challenge and some have a lot to do, some have a little, and we'll all go at our own pace which is why we wanted it to be so long. Tomorrow will be smaller/combined spaces and then I have ideas for paper organization and storage, ribbon, embellishments, etc. Its all one big challenge so that if you have a system that works for one thing you can leave that and do something else... whatever you want! Some of us might end up doing a complete make over, others just a few things or gather ideas for later... whatever works for you

Both! But if you just want one an overall would probably be best. WHatever you decide - this challenge is more for you than anyone

i would love my space to turn out like one of those, but mine has to be flexible so that it can be moved away when we have company

Some of those spaces are beautiful!! I am super embarrased to even take a picture of my room right now. Boy is it a mess! Hopefully this challenge will give me the kick I need to start cleaning it up and put things away.

Let's just say I can't close my door as the stuff is piling out into the hallway. The room is a combination scrappy, office, book storage and craft storage space for the kids.

I cleaned my room a few weeks ago in order to post a picture on here, so I don't really have anything to organize.
