Welcome Sherry!

I'm very excited to have Sherry with us this month! I think Sherry was one of the first persons I met through an online scrapbook community 6 years ago. She's so incredibly talented and super sweet. Read about Sherry's organizational ideas for her creative space and leave a comment to Welcome her at Emma's Paperie! Check out what she picked as her Favorite Things at the end for a chance to win it all!

Meet Sherry Wright:

Hi there, it’s Sherry and I’m thrilled to be here as guest designer for Emma’s Paperie! I’m 29 plus 5 ;0), live in northern Michigan with my husband of almost 15 years, son (5), 2 cats, 1 dog, and lots of birds and wildlife. I work full-time as a home care physical therapist traveling four counties and enjoy every minute!

I started scrapbooking after my son was born and I was given a kit at my baby shower. Living in a rural area, I had no LSS, but after I found all the on-line stores and communities I was quickly hooked. I soon branched off into creating home décor, altered items, cards, and stamped projects. I’ve enjoyed working for several manufacturers and magazines since then and always find my creative time relaxing and a great break from my “day job”. My creative time is usually after my son goes to bed on the weekends or the rare times he takes a nap.

When I’m not crafting or working, I’m spending time with family, camping, boating, or tending to my many gardens.

My scraproom has slowly evolved from a spot on the dining room table to a closet and now a scraproom/playroom in the finished basement. For Christmas one year my husband installed kitchen cabinets and countertops, bookshelves, and a play and art area for my son. It’s the best of both worlds, we can now play and create together! Now it’s nothing fancy since we have no cool organizational stores around here, but I love it! Here’s a view of the Target cubes I ordered on-line and my counter space (sorry for the bad photos but basement lighting isn’t the best):




























































The row on bookshelves to store toys and my ever growing collection of goodies:

The work in progress of organizing my zillions of buttons by color using the Melissa Frances jars from Emma’s:

The over the door ribbon organizer my Dad built me for my ribbon addiction ( I think I need another, lol):















My ScrapRack:

My newest addition, one of my Clip it Ups, these things store a ton and make things so easy to find:















A row of storage containers for my newest goodies:

I try to keep everything organized by color, theme, or manufacturer. My stamping supplies in one place and my most used supplies within reach. While I create my space looks like a tornado went through, but I always clean up between projects so I can find everything.

Thanks for getting to know me and peeking at my space. I try to share my creations on my blog: www.sherrywright.typepad.com and would love it if you stopped by! :0)

Here are "Sherry's Favorite Things" that she hand-picked for one lucky winner! Leave a comment on this thread welcoming Sherry and I will draw a name using a random number generator on June 16th. Check back on the 15th of this month too for more Ideas & Inspiration!

Your place looks pretty "special" to me--I'm still at the kitchen table! Happy crafting from one Michigander to another.

Thanks for letting us peak into Sherry's creative space. It is full of inspiration. Love the look of the Target cubes...did not think I liked them at first, but she gave me new insight.
Thanks!

Pretty nice scrapping place Sherry! Do you use an Ott light or sunlight desk lamp for your work table? I know basements are bad for lighting. It will be fun to check out your creations this month.

The Squared One said...

Wow, what an awesome scrap place!!!! Welcome and looking forward to seeing your gorgeous creations!!! Wow again!

Julie Masse said...

Love your counter space and all those Target cubes!! My space is in the very slow hands of my contractor . . .but I dream of the day! :) Thanks for sharing with us! :)

Sherry Wright said...

Thanks SO much for the warm welcome and nice comments, you've made my week!! To answer Sandy's question.. I do use 2 Ott lights and since the basement is a walk out I have 2 windows that let a small amount of natural light in. Otherwise, you're right basement lighting is pretty bad.

Thanks again everyone! :0)

Heather said...

Wendy said...

Welcome Sherry! I think your scrap space looks wonderful...lots of space and great storage!

Melanie said...

Sherry - your scrap space looks sooo amazing! Love all that room. Plus the organization!

Scrapbookmama said...

Wow that is such an awesome "play" area I love it all I just started to get those cubes from Target myself and I must say they really do help so much I see myself little by little getting rid of my Wire cubes and getting the Target ones:) Can't wait to see what you bring to the table this month.
