The Busy Giffs: Getting Organized

December 31, 2011

Getting Organized

I've had the past couple days to be home, do my errands and organize!

I have a corner of our bedroom where I tuck all my scrapbook stuff. 

This is what that corner looked like a couple days ago.
Clearly it's a mess.

I took some time, and some advice from Pinterest, and started working on the corner.

Yes, everything has to get messier before it gets cleaner.
And drum roll please....

Would you believe it cost me a whopping $6!?
The small gray and black boxes were at Target for 2.50 for a pack of 2 and I bought a small tray for $1!
I used old shipping boxes I had in my closet (which I plan on covering in paper) after I saw an idea on Pinterest.
I'm not sure I'm in love with it though. 
I always do my scrapbooking on my kitchen table and after separating all of my paper by color, it's in too many boxes to carry out there.
I found this idea and I seriously think this is what I'll end up doing, but with 2 carts. Since they're on wheels, I'll be able to just roll them from the room to the table and not even have to unload anything.

 And what sparked this idea??
My new Cricut!!

Mom gave me one for Christmas and not only is it amazing and deserve it's own space, but I've already started doing all of my pages in Emmalee's scrapbook with it!

I'm sure I'll share more as I play with the Cricut more!

  1. Very cool and good for you! I had to stop and look. As a crafter and a Gifford, my maiden name any way, no "s" just Gifford. At any rate good for you. I loved having my first craft spot. mind was above my dryer. I used my dryer top to work on. I had no room in the dining rooom, none. I do understand however... Do you have any way you can have your craft stuff in the dinning room? maybe repurpose a buffet or bottem of a china hutch? Would that be easier. I guess it depends on what you use more the stuff in thoes spots or the crafting and scrapbooking things.. Just a thought. I am full of thoughts. Kudos to you and repurposing the shipping boxes.. Way cool!
