Most of my scrapbooking supplies are actually in the Expedit.

A few more are downstairs in the basement. They're primarily in (and on!) this dresser and these two old stacked pine IKEA units.
There are also different scrapbook projects in the cases on the shelves to the right of the table. (Under that green cloth is my miniature house project I haven't seen in 16 years!)
for a month last year. Shortly after I set up this space to work, my husband and my son turned it into a place to play video games. This is how it looks today! I need to spend some time down here and create a better set up.)

Of course, this is all cleaned up! This is how things really looked at Christmas while I was putting together the scrapbook calendar:
My problem is, I can't leave the room set up to scrapbook all the time. Never mind the chaos, I need this room for many other things as well.
For example, in my photo Freedom class, I'll be sorting photographs on the table:
So, the challenge for me will be how to figure out how to do scrapbook pages in a casual way, a way that doesn't involve radically changing the dining room but still lets me get a page done now and then.
That would make me happy.
