My Scraproom and a Giveaway

Just before the start of summer, I painted my room. In that process, I cleaned and organized. Here's a closer look at my room.
This ribbon storage was Bob's idea. He gives me empty CD containers from work. I enlarge the holes in the ribbon reals and slide them onto the container. The ribbons are stored in containers by color.
I purchased the paper rack from a LSS when the owner was moving out of state with her family. Thank you Barbara from "Through the Grapevine". I think of you often and wished I'd stayed in touch. The green storage boxes on my bookcase hold lace, fibers and die cuts. The storage drawers hold brads, bookplates, paints and dyes.
The top of my paper rack has my favorite quote "Let a joy keep you. . . "
The clothes line above the piano holds favorite cards. The decorative storage cases on top the piano hold chipboard, corners and alphas.
I made the sewing machine skirt and cover (trying to hide some of the electrical wires).
It's not pretty, but the over the door shoe container holds more alphas. Another clothes line with a pretty decorative apron from my sister Terry. Please check my side bar for photos inside the closet (my scrapbook storage) and my corner embellishment rack.
Surplus organizers for electronic storage, adhesives, stamps and ink pads.
Sugar blocks the monitor and she loves the attention she gets when I push her down (she perceives that as petting).

Now for the giveaway: When I painted my room you helped me thin my stash. Now I'd like to giveaway scrapping related books. These are books with design tips, sketches and the like. For US bloggers only, I will pack as many books as I can get in a flat rate shipping box to a random winner selected from those who comment below! Thanks again for allowing me to share!
