My Scrapbook Room, Crafting Haul Goodies and Make Someones Day! 42

**Video Link Fixed! So Sorry!**


SO happy YOU could check in and join me today! Means so much that you take your time to browse and peek into what I’m up to and hopefully feel inspired or encouraged by what you see here!

I have a REALLY long video to share with you! I think personally it has LOTS of goodies in it but its in two parts first is all about my Scrapbooking and Crafting Room.  Everyone has a various size space to organize their craft supplies in. So I try to get creative and be as CHEAP as possible when it comes to scrapbook organization.  I like to have my supplies easy to see and get to, because if I can’t see them or reach them, I don’t use them enough and I have a LOT!  Also with my “move” I have a very small craft space now compared to what I had. But Its a larger craft space than what i started with. I try to give tips and tricks for all!  Second half of this video is about my new Scrapbook Supplies Haul from  MOST of the supplies I purchased, but as a disclaimer they did sponsor and donate SOME supplies to me to share with you guys in upcoming videos that they are sponsoring.  MORE On that LATER!  Bottom line – my GOAL is to add 100 NEW Videos PLUS my weekly Tuesday Tutorials over the next 4-6 months.  Its PRETTY awesome the plans we have! 🙂

Without Further Ado – Here is My Craft and Scrapbook Room with My Scrapbook Supplies Haul Video!

1. Hannah – is 11 years old and she is AWESOME!  She sent me an email awhile back and I am JUST finally getting settled in to SEND her what I promised!  I’m sending this sweet and TALENTED young lady some scrappin’ Goodies including a Glue Glider and Paper Layerz.  Hannah I’m so sorry it’s so late – but THANK YOU for sending me your photos!! Everyone can see somethings Hannah made right her! 🙂 Hannah you do GREAT work and have inspired ME I know you’re going to inspire all these friends here at Above Rubies! Thanks AGAIN!

3. Allison C – She is a facebook follower and someone who I’ve come to pray for a LOT!  She deserves SO much and all I can do is pray – but today I want to send her a Smash Book to help her journal her journey and hopefully add happy stories to and blessed events very soon! Hugs Allison!

(The Next 5 winners are selected by RANDOM.ORG even though I WISH after reading sooo MANY comments you ALL deserve something more!)

4. reddbudd is the winner of a pair of earrings I MADE!  Reddbudd was selected at random But I thought I’d custom pick what each random winner gets!  Since you paid your friend forward with a new pair of bling – how about I make some blingage for your ears as well!  Here is what reddbudd said:

Today i will call my brother and thank him for advice he recently gave me, and let him know how things worked out. I will also finish two cards to give to my bossess at work to let them know they are appreciated. I will also give my friend a pair of earrings that she has admired. She will wear and enjoy them far more than i will.

5. Linda W is my next winner! Since Linda is thinking of ways to use Bottle Caps, I’m going to send Linda some useful tools and embellishments to help her use these up and hopefully in a creatively fun way! Here is what Linda W said:

Just watching your videos puts a smile on my face. Several months ago, I ordered a pack of 100 bottle caps and smoosh them all in my cuttlebug. I had use some for various projects, but I still have bunch left. Now that this video reminded me that I them, I’m going to think of ways to use them again.

6. Nicole H. is our next random winner and she is feeling a bit inclined to wear more makeup so I thought I should help by supplying her with my FAVORITE lip Gloss of All time – BUXOM Lip Gloss!  Here is what Nicole said:

Hi Megan,

I had so much fun watching your make-up tips, thank you! I feel I learned some valuable tips & hints and may be more inclined to wear make-up more often. :-) Thank you for all that you give of yourself! Congrats to Saturday’s winner also!

Hugs, Nicole

7. Sue – I LOVE this from Sue!  She is our next random winner!  And this is so cool!  I thought Sue could use a little Mini Memory Book that she could either send home with her granddaughter OR keep for herself to remember this Easter Weekend with!  How sweet is this!

I really don’t publish things like this cause I don’t want people saying I was bragging or something. My Grandaughter lives about 800 miles away from us. She’s been wanting to come home for quite awhile but just couldn’t afford it.I have felt so bad for her so my husband and I sent her $800.00 so she could rent a truck and come home. Now I can’t wait to see her. She will be home next Saturday, April 7th. Thank you so much Megan for the things you do.

8. Vicki Word Snowden Is my final RANDOM


winner for this Make Someone’s Day Post.  HOWEVER – I have a feeling we will be doing this much more often!  I’m going to be giving Vicki one of the Megan Elizabeth KITS!!!  I know she’s going to enjoy THESE new goodies and maybe even share these with her friends as well!

Vicki Word Snowden To be able to Make Someone’s Day after so many others have made my last two days so awesome makes me really stop and think! However, as I reorganize and clean up my crafting supplies and storage items, I’ve discovered several that I know some of my new-to-crafting (and I did inspire them to give it a try) friends will love using so I’m sharing them with others and love the genuine thanks that I receive. If they can spend more for their families, both in fun and time, because I’m helping them organize, I love being able to do it.

Thanks SOOO much everyone!  I can’t even tell ou of all the comments received in total – EACH and every comment and SMILE you all are bring is a breath taking, tear welling, WOW!  You ALL ROCK!  I can’t wait to do this again!!!

So much HUGS and LOVE!

    Congratulations to all the lucky winners! Megan Elizabeth, you’re a gift unto yourself …when you share a bit of you with your enthusiasm, wit and knowledge, I feel blessed enough! So thank you!!

    …but Girlfriend, for the life of me, I can’t find the video link to your craftroom — though the picture of your primary desk looks sweet enough that I want to come back to look. Love the pillow (“Create, Dream”) on your chair.

    Happy Easter!

  • Iva

    Can’t find the link for the video either. Thought I was doing something wrong until I scrolled down and read the other comments. Thanks ladies for letting me know I’ve not lost it yet!
    Have a blessed day.

  • Connie Burger

    I am a follower of yourwebsite.. I am very impressed by all you do and still have time to post ideas for every to use. I also cannot find the link to the videos. Keep up the good work, Some of your ideas I am taking to my “GOLDEN HANDS” craft group. We have in the past made cards for the men and women in th service. We send them a box of our cards that we have made and then they get to have home made cards to send to their loved ones and friends. It feels so good to be able to do things like this for other people. We also do other things like caps for cancer patients, lap blankets for elderly and have made blankets for a local day care center that was a little tight on cash. Oh it feels sooo good to help others.

  • Sandy W

    Congrats to all the winners of Make Someone’s Day! Megan Elizabeth, I love the thought you put into your prizes and the three extra winners are so deserving too. Way to go. I can’t wait to see your video.

  • Rebecca Jo

    Would love to see the video, too! Also, love the furniture! Where did you get the white cabinet you use to store your supplies? It would be perfect for my small space!

  • Debbie

    Congrats to all the winners! I attended a Cricut demo at a local craft store some time back. One of the other ladies told me about your website and I am so glad she did. Megan Elizabeth, I wanted you to know you inspired me to make my own Easter cards for my Grandkids this year. I love the way you put together items that I would have never thought would go together. Most of the time I spend so much time trying to figure out what goes together, I get frustrated, get up, close the door to my craft room and never get the project completed. My other problem is I get so attached to all the pretty paper, I want to save it so I can look at it later. Epiphany! There is always going to be new pretty papers coming out so I can use what I have and then buy more later. Thank you for Above Rubies Studio.

    Wholly VIDEOS BATMAN! I TOTALLY Didn’t Do the link right! So sorry! It’s Fixed now! Forgive me? I told you I wasn’t feeling well! 🙁 Sorry!

  • Diane

    I am really impressed with your organization and use of space. Great work! I would really like more details on how you store your Cricut cartridges. I really need help. Thank you so much.

  • Ferne

    Thanks for your tip on scrap booking at the end of this video. I am getting ready to get my feet wet and try scrap booking, or at least add this to my resume of crafts I do :O) Wishing you and your family a wonderful Easter!

  • Nicole H.

    Hi Megan,
    I just read that I am one of the lucky winners, and I am so thankful and excited!!! I tried to click on the form above for my prize and there doesn’t appear to be a link. Can I just email you anyway? Again, thank you so much for all of your creativity, inspiration & generosity!!! I truly enjoy watching all of your videos!! 🙂
    Hugs, Nicole

    Congratulations to all the winners, enjoy your new supplies. Love the video! I like some of your organization but I need to go more extreme in order to craft anything, like I want to see all my stamps so made a couple binders for them. I could go on but I won’t as I will some day make a video of my little corner of the room. TFS and look forward to all those videos that will be coming in the next 6 months.

  • Suzanne

    Been with you from the start and you are always transitioning in a positive way! Sometimes it is hard for me to keep up but I always enjoy what is going on! You rock…

  • Shirley E.

    Watching your videos always gives me some inspiration to get busy!. And 100 videos, wow, now that’s impressive. Love your bedroom/craft room. Looks like your well organized!
    Congrats to the “MAKE SOMEONES DAY WINNERS!”

  • Mary Ann Huntington

    Good luck to you in your new life. Starting over is always hard, but you have your little kids, your career and the Lord. You really don’t need anything else. Have fun making your 100 videos!

  • Chris

    Thanks for sharing product info. I love when you do that. Also welcome to WI. I was born and raised just outside of Milwaukee and spent my first 47yrs there. I’m not sure where you are, but I’m thinking in the Appleton area somewhere. Enjoy any nice day outside that you find, because summers are very short. They lucked out this winter, but that doesn’t always happen. Can’t wait to see more product videos. Have fun as always and congrats to the winners.

  • mommyMe

    Congratulations to all who won! Megan, you are absolutely amazing! I found your blog shortly after you began. I wish you the best in reaching your goals…I will be behind you one video at a time. (Of course, I’m just as enthusiastic about reading your posts, even without the videos.) Thank you for sharing your new space; I’m amazed at what you’ve managed to accommodate! I pray for your health, happiness, and success!

  • Vicky Hale

    I just finished watching the long video, had to do it in two stages. I really enjoyed seeing your space and i really really enjoyed seeing all the great things you picked up from craft-e-corner. Great job and I can’t wait to see the 100+ videos you are planning!

  • GaylaT

    Although I may not be one of your winners officially, I am taking a hube gift away from your Make Someone’s Day. There are so many remarks you will probably not even read this but I still want to thank you for making me see how much I have to be grateful for. I love surprises and goodies just like everyone else but when I sat here at my computer I realized that I really didn’t need anything to make my day or my life. Although I had to retire years ago due to a chronic illness I’ve been given good medication to help control the pain. I am able to care for my grands four days a week and to have the freedom to be so close to them is a joy. I am able to feel of some value by doing volunteer work with animals who are slated to be put to sleep when no one wants them and to help find them forever homes. How much better could my life be than that? I am able to retire with a decent income and can buy the things I want with in reason so I can craft and enjoy my time that early retirement gives me. When you can’t think of anything you really NEED, life must be treating me pretty good. I thank God for my life and my happiness but I also want to thank you one more time for allowing me to see how well taken care of I am. I also enjoyed seeing your craft room. It was not nearly as fancy as I expected with you being a professional. I’ve seen some craft rooms on YouTube that made me really wonder why a person would invest that kind of money in play things. Here you are, a working woman who has more than I do but not as over the top as some. You really are such a grounded smart woman and that should make you more proud of what you do have than some who have all the THINGS but no real use for them. The more I watch you vids the more respect I have for you. You are almost as blessed as I am and may God continue to smile on you and to held you in the palm of his hand. The one way I’m more blessed than you are is that I have met you on the internet and get to be one of your fans.
