This is my small scrap place. It is located behind my sofa in our livingroom. So while I scrap our two dogs guard me from the sofa (have to keep it covered). My area may be small but I have everything that I need. I have a full sewing/quilting room the the third floor of our home. That use to be my haven before we got the new puppy and she does not like to be left alone, so we moved the scrapbook area to the livingroom. So no matter the size of your space make it work for you.
