I have been in such a scrapping rut lately that my scrapbook room has definately taken a toll. When I buy something, it just gets tossed on top of the pile of "crafty things". I have baskets upon baskets (as you can see in the picture) of things that need to be put away or things that don't have a home. I used to have everything so organzied and in its right place. On top of all this mess, I share this space in my master bedroom so I don't have a whole lot of space to spread out. I spent Tuesday and Wednesday cleaning and organizing all my stuff. Please feel free to click on the pictures to enlarge them. And while I still have a long way to go, I think I'm happy with what has been conquored so far.
Please pay no attention to the back wall that is in SERIOUS need of a paint job. My landlord has been promising this since we moved in a year ago and I'm tooooo busy to do it myself right now. I love that my shelf is finally clear enough to hold my cricut again. I went through all my baskets and put things away properly so now I can find it! All my adhesives are in one spot, my brushes all in the flower pot where they belong, and my ink pads all lined up perfectly.
And here are all the empty baskets I had left over. Even the large laundry baskets were full of stuff. These small baskets were bought to help organize and now they have finally been used for what I bought them for. And my laundry room has gained two extra bins!!
It was a lot of work, but I'm so happy now. Since these photos were taken I have finished clearing off the top of the desk, organized all my ribbon, cricut stuff, and put away another large basket. While my progress might be slow, its steady and I can't wait to finally be able to scrap in my space again.
