Do over.


Photos Restored by Restoring and Coloring Old Family Pictures.

I recently discovered the Facebook group Restoring and Coloring Old Family Pictures. So I have been re-scanning and photographing many of my old photos and negatives. I have uploaded many to the group and I am impressed with the results. It is amazing how many more details I noticed through the colorizations.

I have scrap-booked some of these photos before, but I would like to do them again using different supplies. I am also excited to do some new one’s as well.

So I thought my craft space could also use a do over.
Before.

After.
I think that’s much better.

In the winter I work upstairs in our home office, so that I have more natural light, it is warmer than My Craft-room, which is in the basement and I am closer to my family. On my left is my Råskog, on the table is a 3 tiered wire rack in a tray on a Lazy Susan, which holds small supplies tools, etc. on the right a side table.

This was a Thrift-store find.

It is amazing how much you can have within easy reach in a small space with careful planning. The wooden boxes were a Thrift-store find, but they are available from Ikea.

BONDLIAN Box for tissues, bamboo, 26×14 cm

I store Stickles, Distress inks, glitter-glue, etc. in Vanity Organizers for lipstick and nail polish. I store them upside down, they fit better and it helps keep the nozzles clear.
