Creative Spaces!!

Oh this is exciting!
The second volume of Creative Spaces from Creating Keepsakes is on sale now!!

And I got to be a part of it!
That is pretty exciting to me since my scrap space is really pretty small and not at all elaborate.
It started off as some unfinished attic space off of our bedroom that my husband added walls and a floor to.
He left the painting and decorating to me!

Here are a couple pics of my space that you don't get to see in the magazine.
This is a wooden CD shelf that I saved from the trash and painted white.
It's a great place to store lots of small things.

And one of my favorite things about my room is all the little containers that I have collected over time from the Target dollar spot!
Let's see...there are 15 of them in this pic if you count the one over on the left barely making it into the photo!
:)


And here is a closer look at a couple of racks that I managed to acquire when a local scrapbook store here closed.
The closing was sad but I love what I was able to get my hands on!


I love that my small, cozy, oddly shaped space got featured.
Maybe it will help some of you be able to maximize some little space in your house!
OK, OK enough about my space!
*****
Here is a {link} to a cool sneak peek of the issue.
Here is a {link} to where you can get a copy for yourself.
Or check out bookstores or wherever you buy your magazines.
I found a copy at Barnes and Noble before the issue was even supposed to be on sale.
Score!!
Also this is the 2nd volume of Creative Spaces.
If you haven't seen Volume 1 (which came out last year), here is a {link} to that issue also.


OK now, you know I am not going to be rambling on about how excited I am about this issue without giving you a chance to win one for yourself!
Actually I wish I could give one to every one of you who stopped by my blog!!
But I better just stick to 1 like I was told!
:)
OK just leave me a comment and I will pick a winner Monday evening!
Have an awesome weekend!!
:)

I stalk blogs looking for ideas for fixing up my craft room - I have a big room but really struggle with decorating it and making it super functional. This magazine looks like it will definitely give me some great ideas.

I love seeing all types of creative spaces especially since I have a craftroom and need help organizing it. My problem is wall space since there isn't much of it. I feel cluttered and overwhelmed. This is a great book for me! Congratulations on being published!
