Danielle has a multi-functional desk in one corner of her bedroom which keeps the majority of her art and scrapbooking supplies, packing supplies for her online shops and random paperwork. It's rare that Danielle uses the desk to actually scrapbook, but sometimes uses her laptop or sewing machine here. For storage, she has three Cropper Hopper vertical storage files with dividers for paper storage and a vintage timber shelf for art supplies, inks and mists.
The shelves above her desk hold a range of supplies, with book boxes containing photos and other supplies, more art supplies in different vintage camera cases, a stack of washi tape and jars of ribbons. Cardboard pizza boxes hold Danielle's unsorted layouts, and an aluminium case contains her stamp collection. Old mini albums and other random art pieces pile up on the top shelf.
As well as some Rob Ryan papercuts taped to the wall for inspiration, Danielle keeps a shoe box for random supplies and paperwork on the desk, knowing that these items would just pile up if they didn't have a place to go! Her current projects are usually kept in a single cardboard box nested beneath the desk, but supplies are also scattered among the 8 drawers of the desk when not immediately required.
This corner of Danielle's lounge is one of the two places in her home where she actually creates scrapbook projects, using the sturdy coffee table as a make-shift desk while watching movies or listening to music!
The kitchen table is the other main scrapbooking space Danielle uses often, sometimes with her kids sharing the table and craft supplies or at other times interspersed with unloading the dishwasher or making a meal. With one cardboard box containing all current projects and supplies, it is quick to clean up after a scrapbooking session - everything just goes back in the box, with art supplies being returned to the desk for later.
This vintage chest is nestled between Danielle's entryway and lounge room in her small family home and contains boxes of children's craft supplies as well as older scrapbooking items or things that need to be sorted. Danielle regularly culls supplies and donates products to her children's school for further crafty use!
