Scrapbook Room: Organization Sneak Peek

Yes, I’m at it uh-GEN! I’m doing a major reorganization of my scrap area. And I’m serious this time. I even moved furniture and stuff. On the one hand, it’s driving me crazy because I vowed I would not engage in any way, shape, or form of scrapbooking (or papercrafting or card making or whatever you try to call it other than scrapbooking…) until my room was 100% organized. Well, make that 90% organized because I think I’ll be dead and buried before my photos are in labeled, chronological boxes. So I haven’t been able to scrap a dang thing in, like, weeks. On the other hand, it feels really good to make the progress I’ve been making and envisioning how nice it will be when it’s all done.

Thought I would post some sneak peek photos so you don’t think I’m fulll of sCRAP…{Sorry, the photos are dark…it’s 10:30 p.m. here…hope you can see them okay}

MY CRICUT IS FINALLY OUT ON MY DESK WHERE I’LL USE IT MORE, AND THE SPINNING STORAGE THINGEE FROM TARGET IS PERFECT TO HOLD MY CARTRIDGES AND STUFF…

THIS IS ONE OF THOSE CUTE STACKABLE ORGANIZERS FROM COSTCO. WHEN I WAS SELLING SCRAPBOOK SUPPLIES AT MY CROPS, ALL 3 LEVELS WERE PACKED WITH EMBELLIES, RIBBONS, TOOLS, ETC. OH DARN, WHATEVER I DIDN’T SELL AT MY LAST CROP, I HAD TO KEEP. YIPPEE, IT’S ALL EMPTIED OUT AND NOW A PART OF MY EVER LOVIN’ PERSONAL STASH…

So I’m making progress, slowly but surely. Oh, I should’ve posted a pic of the boxful of trash I’ve purged! (Lots :) See, I really am organizing…am I doing good so far?

    Great job organizing, Erika! But did you realize that you put your drawer pull on upside down on that drawer unit?

    Anne Marie ~ Hee! Yes, I liked it better that way, LOL :) Sometimes it’s fun NOT to follow directions….

  6. Abby says:

    Oh so organized! Loving the peeks! I really like your glass jars! Are they vintage?

    I love those gingerbread jars Erika! I am one of those that need to see everything in order to remember to use it. Hence the sewing machine always ready to go. I need to move my cricut so I’ll remember to use it, too.

    Hey Erika! Organizing can be a never ending job! I stumbled across your blog when I did a search for ScrapRack – one of your blog entries came up when I googled it. I’m curious to know if you are still using it – I didn’t notice it in your recent reorganization. If you are still using it do you like it? And if you aren’t using it, why didn’t you like it?
