Today is my Mom's birthday and last night I did finish up the mini scrapbooking table that I have been working on for her. It actually does remind me of her workspace because it's so messy! I thought I would share a few pics with everyone. I won't see her until tonight after work so you guys are getting the first peek! I'll try to remember to take some pics of her real scrapbooking area as well.
This is just a table top view. There's a red box in the corner full of stickers and bags full of scrapbooking paper and cut-outs of shapes and frames. Then there is a wooden jar with 3 pencils and a ruler - the ruler actually has lines on it, but for some reason you can't see it in this picture. There is also a white notepad and another yellow pencil hiding in the upper right hand corner of the desk. Then just scattered across the top are sheets of scrapbook paper - some with pictures and stickers already attached and some blank. Then there is a pile of family photos in the middle of the desk. I finished two pages in the scrapbook itself and left the rest blank as if she had been working on it. And of course she has a cup of coffee sitting in the corner as well. I included my favorite wheat penny for scale.
Here's another angle from the top. If you look back through previous posts you'll see that I gave the website of where I got all of the printies for the scrapbook paper and stickers. And then of course I used a photo index print to cut the small family photos out of. The box that the stickers and bags are in is actually the bottom of a box of matches painted with a red marker. The wooden jar (which I stained), the pencils, ruler, notebook paper, and the coffee cup were all minis bought at either Michael's or Hobby Lobby. Oh and the little bags came from Michael's as well. I just cut them down to size and used clear scotch tape to seal up the sides. I used clear nail polish on the cardstock stickers to make them look more realistic. And some of the sticker packs I wrapped in scotch tape to make them look like they haven't been opened yet. I'm going to scan a sheet of the notebook paper that way I can print my own off for future projects. Also the pencils that I bought are the exact size of a toothpick so I'll buy some more paint and be making those on my own from now on too.
