My Craftroom Now

This is the before photo that I posted on Saturday of my craft area.

I have been busy all weekend and this is what my area looks like now.  I just want to sit and look at the area now as it is so clean and tidy.  I emptied every little draw and container and put it back in order.  A few things were tossed and already gone as the rubbish man has just been.  Other things to be passed on to my little nieces and nephews for something to do this school holidays.  My daughter kept coming in and saying there is something's easier to open the cupboard.  I think that is because there is no junk on the floor getting in the way.

This is really not a great before shot as I already had removed all the gear in the second shelf ... my messiest shelf holding bags of ribbons.

I emptied everything out and headed off to our new KMart 15mins down the road and bought seven new storage containers.  So wonderful.  Ribbons all together, rubber stamps together, ink pads together, dies and embossing folders together.  All that is left to do is label them all....not for me but my daughter so she won't go through everything to find what she is after.

So I am really happy with this area again and hope to get crafting soon. Although it is school holidays now for two weeks so will be in and out with our daughter and our son is back in town for the second week. :-)

Must say there may be one negative about cleaning out your craft cupboard on the weekend when your hubby is home.  He made this comment 'I didn't know you had that much stuff'.  Guess I had better wait a little before I order more. :-)

Have a great day.
