Tackle It Tuesday
This is my first 'Tackle It Tuesday' post. I decided to tackle my scrapbooking area because it really really needed it!! Since I've been working on a scrapbook album for my mom and also putting mini kits together for swaps, it didn't take long to get cluttered. I'm almost embarrassed to share. ;o)
I did find a couple of interesting things though.
Here are a few before pictures......
Wow! A very messy desk !!
A 3-drawer cart that is pretty much empty
So, I went to work. I cleaned out the cardboard boxes that had my stamps & ink pads. I organized those things into the 3-drawer cart. I thought I would put some scrapbooking things in there too but, the stamps filled all 3 drawers. (Note to self : Don't buy anymore stamps!)
I cleaned all the bits of cardstock and put them in a folder so I can use those when I need just a little bit of paper. I put all of my cardstock and patterned paper away from the top of my desk. Paper is my weakness. I love all the new patterned papers. (Note to self: Don't buy anymore paper!)
I also gathered up my embellishments (brads, eyelets, stickers, rub-ons, etc) and organized those into containers and an accordion folder. With all of the stuff I found I shouldn't need to buy anything for a long while. I need to use it all up before I buy anything more. (Note to self: Don't buy anything else until you've used up what you have!)
Sooooooo after more than an hour at it and some garbage....
Here are the final results.....
I should be able to be more creative now with a clean desk. How long will it stay this way????
Ahhh. It looks so much better!
