Worlds worst roomtour... And a scrapbook layout

It's not easy to have time for scrapbooking and writing daily in your Fauxbonichi when you work, have problems to sleep and have a family...
And this crappy scraproom... It could be much worse and I'm quite content but my hubby hates it. Always have opinions what it looks like. Too much stuff he thinks. Well, if I didn't have to have the piano, the other instruments and all the books and ringbinders with important paper in it would be looking... at least at little bit better. ;)
 
Today my plan is to show you my messy Råskog cart. Yes, you English speaking people, if you say the word rawskoog you will be closer to how you pronounce that name than if  you say Raskog. And I'm expecting you to correct my English ;)
 
At first a full body shot of my Råskog. LOVE this colour. Unfortunately my room's so full that I don't have a perfect Place for it, and I have to be able to move it too. So my Alex unit and the Råskog are moving backward and forward depending on whom I need. Most of the time I take a couple of steps to reach my stuff in the Råskog instead of moving it. What to do you Think of my grandmas piano? She's in a nursinghome now and when she left her house I got the piano. It needs to be tuned...
 
                                                                     
In the bottom I have my few enamel dots in one bin and my dies in another bin. I do not have that many dies eather.
In the front I have two Bygel. One with my staples and the one to the left with my Distress inks.
                                                                    
 
                                                                    
The middle floor contains some random paperframes which are VERY old and i suspect that they will never be used. Then theres a ziplockbag with some diecuts from a brand I do not remember... I also have my Collection of colour samples from a paint store.
I also have Bygel bins with my spatulas, my Gesso, Glossy Accents, Colour Shines, emossing stuff, some of my brushes, tools and my Paint daubers there.
 
And here comes my favourite shelf. Or is it the bottom shelf? Hard decision. The shelf of my Project Life cards. The shelf of my memoriebelias from this years Turkey trip.  (It will take a hundred years until I scrap them...) I do not have that many Project Life cards but I've ordered one more core kit for the crop in the middle of this month. And I havn't even started with my PL-album...
 
                                                                    
 
I wounder, if anybody who's going to crops is reading this, how do you decide what to be doing there and what to bring? I've made a list of things I can do and what I should bring, but it becomes alot! I need to bring myh whole scraproom. And I made an order in july on stuff that I would bring to this crop, but now I'm  not sure that  they will get here till then. I'm a newbie when it comes to crops. Should I do packages with kits for the phótos I bring with me, or should Igo with cardmaking, or should I go with the PL style in which I intend to to my wedding album??? I don't know!
 
This last week I've only made one layout. Been going to my scraproom just staring at my layout on my desk and then I've walked away. Been to tied. But now it's done!
                     
                                                                 
 
I'm letting them be this big cause I love the pics of my kids!
 
I've used the poolside Collection, cardstock from my stash, paint dauber, sequnce from my stash, I am Collection, I sewed. ´The letters are from the Fitzgerald and the So Fancy Collections. And goldletters whith I bought from a Swedish Craftcompany.
 
And by the way, Galna Ungar means Crazy Kids...
 
Have I nice week! I Will work on Thursday and then I will be free for a couple of Days.
 

Scraproom stamping storage

  Happy weekend everybody! Yes, I know it's Tuesday, but today my weekend starts. Worked this passed weekend and yesterday, and from Thursday to Sunday it's time to work again. So today, let's get some scrapping, Fauxbonichipages and blogging done!
 
But it is Tuesday and that meens I'm going to share something from my chaotic room.
Don't have alot of stamps or incpads or embossing stuff but what I have, I do have in some sort of spread out organisation.
 
                                                                             
In this tower made of two Micke drawerunits from IKEA i have one drawer with my incpads. Micke in the bottom has his weels on, but the other one I just put on top of it.
 
                                                                     
How about my big stash? Well, it's growing and growing and has done so for almost ten years. Yes, it's a slow grower. Maybe needs to be furtilized? Most of the incs has gotten in my possess this last year. And they are so fun! All you can do with them! I mostly use them for the packagíng tecnique but you can see on the inc blending pads; they are used too.
                                                              
My clearstamps i store in a plastic box from Hammarplast.I put the different stampsets in Avery Elle Stamp and Die storage pockets. I cut ugly white papers and put in behind each stampset. I made my own dividers and diecut out tabs with Tim Holtzs "Tiny tabs and Tags"-dies. Since I don't have so many stamps the categorys are Alfas, Sentiments, Backgrounds and Christmas so far.
Behind the stamps I have my extra Avery Elle pockets. I love these! I use them for my dies to.
 
                                                                
 
 The idea for this storage I of cause got from searching Pinterest and YouTube.
 
Under my bow with stamps I have an IKEA Rissla box in which I'm keeping my wooden stamps.
                                                               
 
                                                               
They're mostly from Panduro which is a Swedish hobby store. This store was the first Craft/hobby store I heard of and it started off like a mail order Company (to me). When the store opened in my town it was huge to me. But now... I mostly find it expensive and that they don't have these funny brands like Heidi Swapp, Lawn Fawn, Crate Paper, Amy Tangerine, I guess you understand. But they do have a few Sn@p-items. I so wish that we had these kind of stores they seem to have in the US where you can find all sorts of brands and to a good price. There is one store i Gothenburg, or as we say, Göteborg, where there's a store called CiLi in Papers which I dream of going to someday. I've purchased once or twice from her webb shop and she has got gorgeous things and many of these famouse brands.
 
Last I'll show you my gigantic stash of embossing stuff. (Mixed with some of my paint brushes.)
                                                                          
Impressed? I'm not. But I don't use them that much. Yet. But I will... Made a layout earlier today where I used emboissing and package tecnique over it. Inspired by Adele, of cause. Turned out ok.
 
Well, I guess it's time to dive into my Fauxbonichi before it's time to make supper. And I do excuse my texts if there's alot of capitalletters where there shouldn't be. My computer is changing as it pleases and I'm not always attentive enough to notice that... And also, my words may sometimes be old fashioned because my OLD dictionary has found it's way to my desk. But please, correct me then. Make a comment down below and tell me how a modern human beeing would put it! And all kind of suggestions or comments of my layouts or storage solutions are more than welcome! That's why I write in a blogg: I want ideas and comments. :)
Have I nice Tuesday evening! I'm even thinking of maybe, mayby open a beer or having a glass of wine...
