Finished with my room!!!

Good grief, I thought I'd never finish moving my stuff around!  Whew, am I glad to have everything back in place.  It's always amazing to me what a little re-organizing will do for my crafty mojo!  Is it the same for you?  It always inspires me to create!  What I'm most excited about my space is the fact that my desk is almost completely cleared off.  I don't have a very good picture of it for today, maybe tomorrow?

I moved Mike moved my bookcase over here.  Then I rearranged a lot of the stuff so that the majority of my desktop supplies could fit on here.  I had to sit myself down and have a little talk.  Seriously Becky, this bookcase is one step, ONE, behind your desk.  I think I can turn myself around and grab my glue dots from the bookcase, they don't need to take up room on my desktop :)  I really felt so much better after I gave myself permission to do that!

I also cleaned off the small white desk so now my Project Life album can be open all the time.  I probably won't work on it here because the desk is so small, but I think I'll jot notes down and stick them in the book with it being open like this.

This table got flip flopped with the bookcase and the other big move I made was moving my sewing machine off of it.  It's actually sitting on top of the bookcase!  I've only used it two or three times, and the last time I tried to use it, I'm pretty sure I broke it.  Sewing machines and I do NOT get along :(  I need to have my mom or sister take a look at it...  They are both famous seamstresses and can sew anything (no mom, I'm not just saying that so you'll fix my machine, ha).  Anyway, by moving the machine off my table, it freed up a bit more work space.  For what, I'm not sure, but I like the clean look of it.

Here's kind of a look of my main work space, but you really can't tell how much I cleaned off my desk.  It's just my tool caddy, scor pal, mat and trimmer on there!  So proud of myself!

I'm such a visual worker that I have to have everything out.  If I don't see it, I don't use it.  But the problem with that is that I'm also a neat freak and I don't like things to be cluttered.  I want everything to be put away.  I had a difficult time with this reorganization, but I'm pretty happy with the way things turned out...so far :)

Thank you so much for your well wishes yesterday!  You guys are the BEST!  Thanks for stopping in today and I'll see you back here tomorrow!!


  1. Wow! Looks awesome :o) I am the same exact way, have to see it to use it but, have to put it all away. Such a pain! I get a lot of inspirational mojo after organizing and cleaning also. My worst habit is putting things all over the floor, mostly paper :o)Hugs!

  2. Looks good! I am glad you moved your glue dots to where it works for you. I also am a see it, use it kind of girl. But it can't look messy. I just finish my re-do to open up the floor plan. Now I can roll my chair to all of my different work areas. Before I had yellow desk in the middle of the room and it just didn't work. I was always bumping into something. And you are right, it felt good to finish it.

  3. your desk and room look awesome! i love that everything is so neat and tidy!!! i see that sketch book on your desk- i can't wait for your review!!

  4. Congrats on finishing your room!!! Have fun playing :-P

  5. Wow, your room looks great. Looks so organized.
    I like that you put your Project Life in its own area with the journaling cards close by. I can see that working out great.
    I, like you, need everything to be neat and organized, yet like to see everything I have.

  6. Your space looks great! It always feels great to have everything organized, it's so much easier to craft that way. I'm the same way when it comes to having everything out; if I don't see it I won't use it. That is why I've started putting them on my desk in a cute bin.

  7. I NEED to do this. When I sit down, I get overwhelmed by the stuff that is crowding in on me.

  8. looks great! I'm in the middle of overhauling my tiny area ... so much STUFF!!
