I DID IT!!!!!!












































I took on a large procrastination challenge this month. I really needed to get my craft room in order to begin my Christmas sewing projects. It was totally out of control as you can see from the bottom collaged picture. Piles EVERY where! The top collage is the completed room. The third picture is the stuff that I threw away. I gave away at least as much or more! It took me a little longer than I planned to finish this project. I have "something something" (I don't know the long word) vertigo. I found that being in this small room and moving my head up and down from the high up shelves and down that it made me very dizzy and headachy! lol.. so, I wasn't able to spend a long a period of times as I wanted. The room is organized although I don't think it is going to stay in this order. As I get out there more and use it and use up my supplies, I am sure that I will do more rearranging. I got rid of a lot of magazines and condensed the containers that I was keeping them in. The colorful containers were pretty but they took up more space than ordinary magazine holders. I have not labeled everything yet. I am waiting (no, not procrastinating!) for my granddaughter as she really likes to use the labeler so I will let her "help" me with that.

I am so happy to have this done and I am so ready to start in on the dolls!!!! HURRAH!!!!

Oh wow! You did a fantastic job! You should go over to orgjunkie where she does a monthly roundup, and this month is the craft room, I think. You should soooo enter that. You'd win!

WOW - you DID IT!!!!

I'm so proud of you!!! Now you can get in there and start crafting away :)

Just make sure to do a quick tidy (5 minutes) every day you use it so it's not a huge job next time!

I'm so, so proud of you you - really I am.

You did quite a job! (When I first came to your post I thought the first picture was of just one wall and wondered how you could live with all of those shelves. Maybe I shouldn't be on the computer when I'm tired. lol)
