      Do you have your paper standing up or laying down?

      I am going to be moving things around in our bedroom so that I can use one end for my work area. Our room is 25 x 13 or 14 so we have room for me at one end 🙂 Right now I am using a coer. I need more space. LOL

      I need to buy more storage cubes and things and I desparately need storage for my paper. I keep seeing pics with people are storing their paper standing up. Doesn't the paper warp?

      Thanks girlies!

        I've done it both ways. I'm in a quandry right now too. Really can't get too excited about much since I don't know if I'll have to break and run for the hills or not???

        I love all the pics of everyone else's scrappy rooms. Mine is a toado area right now. Lisa…post pics when you decide what to do. I need mojo in my scrappy room too!

                      Thanks ladies. I have stacks and piles too Lisa LOL! It will be a few weeks before I am able to get things moved around. I have to make sure I have enough money to buy the storage units before we tu things upside down in the bedroom.

                        The majority of my paper is laying down. Does it really warp standing up? Or is there a correct way to store it..so the paper doesn't damage?
                        Good question Lisa!
                        And if you don't mind me asking, where are you getting your storage units from?

                          I have most of mine standing up and it doesn't warp. I have a roll around hanging file cart that I keep most of my solids and misc papers in (CRopper Hopper). I really love that and wish I had room for another. The rest of my paper is stored by collection in those plastic standup things that Cropper Hopper makes or in those cheap plastic Craft Keepers envelopes. I also have a drawer where I keep my most recent Swirly kit and when all else fails, I keep my swirlykit in the box it came in, LOL!! Right now I am behind on using my kits so I have Moulin Rouge and the Nov kit in their boxes. I desparately need to retire so I can clear the non scrap related junk out of my scrap room!! No idea where I am going to put my Vagabond when it gets here!! I think I am going to be forced to clean up and out.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                            I buy the Jetmax storage units from Michael's. Sometimes they run a 50% of sale and that makes them stupid-cheap! LOL

                              Maggi Dear….don't think that retiring makes more time to do fun stuff. It isn't true!!! I know that my Sistahs that have little kids around do more scrapping than I do staying home 4 out of 7 days. I didn't do ONE single thing today….
                              I'm just a slug!

                                I am completely OCD and love paper! This system works great for me. I actually put a smaller pocket/folder inside the cropper hopper to hold the scraps pertaining to each folder. I haven't had any problems with it warping. Plus, I like that I can label/decorate each holder.

                                Shoot! I'm having a hell of a time trying to figure out how to attach this picture…ha!

                                  I have cropper hopper things, but not enough of them. Bought 5 more but got the wrong kind, got the little pouches. (dumb ass me) So, until I can find the right ones, a LOT of my paper is on the floor in piles, and more piles.
