What a Mission!!!

Wowser!! So I spent my entire day on Sunday reorginizing and decluttering my scrap room. I just had enough of not being able to put things in places or that every time I got around to doing a page there was never any room. I knew what the problem was though. I needed another shelf. And more containers!!! So off to the Big Red Shed!!! We spent a while looking at containers. What I really wanted was a spice rack with glass bottles but they no longer had that style. So I bought 2 small glass jars, about 5 small-size containers and 6 film size containers. OH and I can't forget the gorgeous suede boxes I found too!!! I love 'em! I got stuck in and pulled EVERYTHING out. And I mean everything! I felt like everything was cluttered or stashed somewhere but I didn't have it organized real well. Hugh's mom gave me this portable file box which I hadn't managed to get in until yesterday. And it's awesome! I can hang all my files in it (before I just set them in a basket) but since it has a lid, that means I can also put things on top. I reorganized my rolly cart with just stamps and packaged alphas. And just overall decluttered, filling one trash bag completely up!!! I threw away heaps! And I'm getting rid of some old stuff that I haven't used in 3 years lol. And here's the finished product! It's sooooooo nice being in her now ;) (It probably still looks a little bit messy to some but trust me, it's not lol.)

Great job!! It is the third time I've seen those photos but I'm still jealous!! You've seen my "corner" which is ridiculous and I really am inspired now to get a bigger table and organise my stuff better :-)

Looks nice! I wish I had something like that. But no place, and no time for me. I'll just live vicariously though you.

What I wanna know is can you lock the door behind you?

Looks fab Christi.
Ive not done any s/booking for months as I have to get everything out and put it away when im done as the only space we have is the dinning room table. Alexander is an expert and pulling stuff off the table, so the only stuff ive done is on the computer - still better than nothing I guess.

The end result is so cool - awesome job! If only I had the patience to do that with the clutter in my house ; )

Looks great Christi! I like an 'eclectic look' not all sterile and super-tidy! Makes me wanna poke my nose at the screen to get a real close look and 'discover' what might be in which container 0.o
