French Restored {Celine Regnier}

Happy Tuesday!  I’m so happy to introduce Celine Regnier to you all!  When she first sent photos of her space – I just knew you would love seeing it as much as I did.  She graciously agreed to share even more photos and write a little about her process, even though English is not her first language.  Please give her a warm welcome!

headshot juin 2013 IILet me introduce myself in a few words. I live in the Loire Valley area of France with my lovely husband, our two children, our cat Leo and our puppy Zoe. 

I began scrapbooking in 2003, since then I’ve become really addicted.  I make layouts and mini albums mainly but also canvas, cards… scrapping is a very special moment with myself, pushing my creativity to express myself through stamps, inks, mist and paper. I also serve on the design team for Making Memories & Colorbök, Le club des 5 (Bernadine Segui), Saracolas Boutique (a french company), The Scrapbook Diaries and have been a guest designer for 7 Dots Studio and Prima Marketing.

 

I am excited to share my creative area with you today. My room is like a “boudoir”, a kind of private room, only for me and my creative mind, a room to paint, to sew, to get messy or to watch an online workshop. When I close the door, no one can imagine the big mess behind the door!

1. What kind of budget did you have when organizing your space?

I didn’t spend a lot of money, fortunately (or not) I like to spend time at flea markets around here and it was a great pleasure to restore some stuff, every piece of furniture in my space room is from an another room or from flea markets, it’s like give them a second life.

2. What was your greatest challenge?

My greatest challenge was the large amount of crafting supplies that I have, I had to make them all fit in an organized way into a small room.

3. Are you a “organize it once” kind of girl, or are your storage solutions constantly evolving?

I rarely re-organize my space, it’s too much time.  I just try to be organized, everything in it’s right place! In my room, I have many little places… one for sewing, one for inking….

4. What is one thing you’d like to improve about your storage/organization?

I’d like to have more space (hahaha) but especially very good lighting, because I really like working at night and it would be more easier with better lighting.

Isn’t her space soothing?  I love the gray furniture throughout.  I bet it provides the perfect background for scrapbooking papers and embellishments.  Please visit Celine’s blog here!
