Oh, yes, the re-organization - it's finally done! Yippeee!!! I am now enveloped in scrappiness and it's wonderful! I have spent countless hours winding miscellaneous ribbons on vintage clothes pins, color coding scraps, repackaging stamps, dividing chipboard all so I can scrap with less mess, more fun, and more clarity of mind! Now, I wish that I had a beautiful scrap room complete with custom cupboards to hide everything, an island for standing and custom pendant lighting for my workspace like some I've seen lately (gorgeous!) but that just isn't the space we have right now. For now it's a room in our basement. And it works perfectly fine for me. :)
These are my odds and ends fibers and ribbons that I was talking about. Anything without a spool went on a vintage clothespin that I bought from this store on Ebay - they are great. Then I pinned each one. Now they are neat and pretty too! I need a couple more jars though. Things are getting pretty tight in a couple, like the blues and greens.
This is the view from my workspace/table to the left. I have my printer, my inks, and all my papers. Cardstock in the tower and all patterned paper in the bookshelf below. The only picture I am missing to show you is a little dresser I have in this weird little corner that I keep my Cricut on and store all my punches, cricut cartridges, anything hardy like that. Well. that's it. In the photos it looks like there's a lot going on, but it's so much more spacious and open now, and I love seeing everything in their places.
I hope you have a very Happy Valentine's Day!! This morning I'm making heart shaped pancakes with whipped cream and berries for the kids and getting chocolate covered strawberries at the local bakery to go along with them! It will be fun! The kids will be in heaven with all the yumminess! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope it's filled with lots of love!
