This one is for you, because I think I’ve found the perfect and portable (and quite affordable) piece of scrapbooking furniture!
Check this out …
From Ballard Designs, it’s called the Billpayer cabinet and I think it would make a great little workstation. For a long time, I was a "closet" scrapbooker — meaning simply I had NO room for my hobby and had to operate out of a closet (or corner of the laundry room, etc) and I would have LOVED to have something like this. Now, I have a wonderful studio in my basement, but with a new baby and kids/family in general, I’m forever bringing projects upstairs to work on or finish and then trying to find a place to temporarily store/stack my stuff. I’m thinking about getting this as my "remote/upstairs" scrapbook room. The top caddy lifts out — could hold an extra set of basic tools, the drawers could hold other specific things (materials files for your current project) and the file drawer below, could hold a full set of color folders for scraps of cardstock and pattern paper (or stickers, rub-ons) — whatever filed by color. Just think how easy it would be to sit down and whip up a few cards?!
It’s priced at $199 — but it looks like a nice piece of furniture and it’s got hidden casters so you can roll it around, and it comes in black or white. Not a bad price really.
So, what do you think? Should I get it?
I can’t really buy myself a present, but I can wait and get it after Christmas — don’t you think?
