Happy New Year/Scraproom

Welcome to my scraproom. Which is also my guest room. It's a tiny room, but it does everything I need it to do. Here is what you see after you walk in the room:
There is the computer, external harddrive, photo printer, and my scraps are in the basket. I have the pug blanket for moral support I guess. I don't know. I have since filled up the spice rack with tiny embellishments. The paper in the frame is so old! I can't even remember who makes it, but I liked it.
I know this picture doesn't look like much, but the spot between the  drawers and the closet is where I like to sit on the floor. The door is to the right in this photo.
Since this is also my guest room, the sofa is actually a futon. And it is pretty comfortable. The cover comes off and reveals the mattress and all the bedding is stored underneath. I hope you can see how I've labeled the bins so that you know what is in them. (You can click on the photos to make them bigger.)
Lastly, the most important part of the room is my closet storage. I try to only use half the closet, but I would love to spread out. I have rigged plastic ($6 for 6) bins from the floor to the top. To pull this off you have to have something heavy (cardstock) at the top to anchor it all. Plus I have used jewelry wire I received from a publication a long time ago to wire it to the shelf. 
As long as I go through things pretty regularly, they get used up or gotten rid off. I really like to see everything, I think that is key. But I can't have my room looking like a scrapbook store, because my company has to hang out here too. And I never leave it a mess, it's just not in my nature. 
I know I should update my self portrait with the new year, but I hate doing that! We will see. Have a great weekend everyone!
