Drum roll Please.....

Well here it is.. a weeks worth of de-cluttering, sorting, and organizing. I have over 80 older scrapbook magazines that I am giving away to a second hand store, and I have some "editing" to do with my magazine stash, as I still have way to many.

Not everything is in the room. I have a laundry basket full of sewing/quilting projects that I need to get into clear boxes as well as a laundry basket of yarn earmarked for certain projects. Once I find some more of the great clear shoe boxes that I like. I will stack them in the left over space in the closet.

I still have to go to Ikea to get a table to replace the blue/gray desk that my scrapbook stuff is on, with the same kind of table that my sewing machine is on. The current scrapbook desk is too dark and it takes up too much space in the room. Of course some pictures on the bare walls smight be nice.

A place for everything.....

....and everything in it's place (Sort of) I am very lucky to have a room in my home that I can completely dedicate to the many things that I love to do. Unfortunately I haven't quite been on top of my organizational skills, and the "stuff" in that room, has become unruly. It was time to take charge, and this great bookcase from Ikea was the perfect solution. I still have a bit to do before I have the room completely set up the way that I would like (notice that you don't see pictures of the rest of the room). I am really happy, however, with the progress so far.
