Happy National Scrapbooking Day

I think I shared with you that a few months ago DH & I watched a show about hoarders.  It shamed us into cleaning up our own space.  After some great progress we unfortunately ran out of steam.  :-(  But today I was inspired to clean up the mess created after I reorganized the sb closet.


CLOSET -- before
CLOSET -- after
I continue to be very selective of what items I allow to return back in the closet.  I want to keep this space as open as possible.  I also plan on purchasing and installing a rolling rack for the Scrap Rack.  The rolling rack will allow me to tuck the Scrap Rack into the closet and free up some desktop space. 
Adjacent to the closet is my homemade CIU, my bookshelves and my metal file cabinet.  On one side of the metal file cabinet I have Ikea CD cases that I use to store UMs and some fabric.  Originally I planned to have those CD cases flank each side of the metal cabinet. I may have to scrap that idea in order to make more space for the CIU.  Hmmmmmmmmm.


I am using the file cabinet to organized my WM stamp sets.  Above the file cabinet I have desk organizer that I am using to display some of the art projects I've made or received in a swap.  Haven't decided if the organizer should be painted black or the blue of the file cabinet.  Hmmmmmmmmmmm. 


Don't be fooled by all those pretty pictures of my clean sb room.  I still have so much more to do.  Those plastic drawers pictured above use to be in the sb closet.  I used it to 'hide' some of my sb stuff.  The drawers will not return back to the sb room but I have to empty it out before DH can reclaim them.  So I will do what I always do . . . create three piles; donate, organize, trash and tackle this project 15 minutes at a time! 


In addition to sharing pictures with you of my newly clean room I wanted to share this little project I made.  I promise to post details on how it was created soon.  For now . . . I hope you enjoy National Scrapbooking Day.  Happy Mother's Day to everyone!

As always, thanks for stopping by . . .
