Before and After

I am posting before and after pictures of my scrap area. I have resolved to keep my space clean and straighten up at the end of every day. So far so good! Now if I can just get Sierra to put all her Cuttlekids stuff away and pick up all the cuts of paper!

BEFORE
My desk and random catch all of empty boxes and other trash!

Trash Can, sewing stuff... more boxes

Way too much stuff in this room!!

AFTER
I had to move everything into the master bedroom and Karis now has her own room! These Ikea shelves were given to us for free! Can't beat that! They now hold ribbon, buttons, brads, all my inks and paints, underneath has all my chipboard and some other random stuff stashed.

My shelf with stamps, file cabinet with non-scrappy stuf in there but my SG kits on top! And the large sterilite container is how I sort all my patterned paper. They are mostly in large ziplocks by brand and line with matching accessories in it.

My desk with my Clip it Up on it! I had to buy two extra packs of clips and I still don't have all my stuff up there! Behind it is a tool bit sorter I got in the hardware section. I keep eyelets and odds and ends in there.

Here is my desk with my sizzix and cuttlebug and Sierra's cuttlekids on it. I moved my cricut by the computer in the other room so I had room to leave my sewing machine out. I've actually used it quite a few times just in the last few weeks!
And for all you organized perfectionists out there... this is as good as its gonna get!!

You're doing a great job organizing all your stuff!! I can't believe you got those IKEA shelves for free. WTG!!

I'm beginning to think this is something I should do, too, but I'm sure you had an "organized" mess, like I do, right? Excuses, excuses...

aleta -- I wanted to thank you previously for having stopped by my blog-- Yeah I passed a 1000 in spades :)

I must say you really got a handle on it and I'm impressed -- still a bit of disorganization is good for the soul -- you can't create unless you're frantically tossing things around... that's how the prcess works in my opinion
LOL
