Reorganizing Part 3

Wow! I was reaching the end of my rope on Thursday with all the reorganizing. My room was a mess, and I still had so much more to do! Today though, I finished all the major moving!!! YAY!!!! Check it out!

Here's the view from my door:

My nice, clean desk! I haven't had a desk this empty in quite a while. I love having both of my Making Memories Embellishment Centers hanging on the wall now. The one of the left I purchased on Black Friday in 2010! It's finally up! Thank you, fabulous husband! I love having all my embellishments in rainbow order. It's my major way to sort in my scrapbook room.

This next area is one I've had on my mind for a while now. I wanted a place dedicated to my electronic cutters and would also have somewhere to hook up my computer. Since getting the idea last summer, I've also acquired a printer for my Project Life photos and wanted to incorporate it as well.

Ta-dah!

It's everything I need. My Cameo is on a rolling cart so I can pull it out to cut with and push it back under when I'm not using it. The stack of papers under the Cameo is a bunch of stuff I need to still sort through. My Silhouette SD will go there when it's clear. It's also very easy to switch my Pazzles Inspiration and Cameo to I can use either machine easily.

On the floor next to the cart you can see my photo box. It's in easy reach but now has a designated place.

Next up is my card stock and patterned paper. I love the Cropper Hopper Vertical Storage. It's just amazing. The bottom row has eight slots on the left for my card stock. The eight slots on the right are all Basic Grey patterned paper.

On the top row from left to right are four slots for misc patterned paper including one place for my new purchases, a slot for scraps (which has yet to be organized), specialty paper like glitter, vellum, etc., Bella Blvd, and Fancy Pants. They are four slots for Bo Bunny, and two each for Echo Park and My Mind's Eye. While most of my products are sorted into the rainbow, my patterned paper is usually by manufacturer.

On the top is my Clip-It-Up and my ribbon storage.

Finally, the last major area in my room is my spare desk. I bought this because I invited a friend over to scrapbook and then realized I didn't have anywhere for her to sit! Oops!!

The plastic storage under the desk can easily be moved and a chair added for a friend to come visit. It holds my non-Distress ink, patterned scraps, and some embellishments I have sorted by theme.

On the top is my stamp storage for my clear stamps that I've sorted, sticker storage for my Thickers and small letter stickers, some empty storage, and my storage for some misc things including my magnetic ruler and sample sheets for my Ranger products.

I hope you enjoyed the little tour of my scrapbook room. I still have a lot left to do. There's a closet that needs sorted and all the drawers and shelves I have really still need to be sorted through and purged. I've never purged before in the almost thirteen years I've been scrapping. I think it's time. I'd love to hear what you think. Leave me a comment and let me know!

Pinterest visitor here...is the unit you have your paper in an Ikea unit?

Amy Myers said...

No. When I started buying furniture for my room (before it was even in this particular room) we didn't have an IKEA nearby. All the white cubes and the quarter round shelves in the corner are from Michaels. They were the JetMax cubes but they're sold under the Recollections name now. I had them in a different configuration when it was a 4x5 unit on the other side of my room. I love how sturdy the cubes are and how I can purchase exactly what I need to meet my personal needs.

I also have an accumulation spanning more than 15 years. My youngest will be moving out soon & her room will become my new craft room. I look forward to getting it set up in a more efficient way.
