Getting organized

So I'm starting to get a little more organized in my space. Which I might add is getting smaller by the day. First the kids, then the husband and now the dog. Everyone seems to like my room as much as I do, so to make things easier for me I've kinda moved to just one table. Kinda is the key word because when I'm in the groove I retakeover my whole space!!

A few new things I've added to my room is 2 curtain rods for holding my punches. I've got a bit of a collection going, never thought I would, but here it is. I saw the idea on SCS and loved it so here is my version. It's sits just above the
filing cabinet beside my table.
Next I added this floating shelf that came with the towel bar. I had bought it for something else, didn't like it and so the shelf sat for a few months. Then while visiting a scrapbookhim, aka, Bryan, I saw he had a towel bar with the clipitz clips to hold his *ahem* small assortment of acrylic stamps. BING, the light went off. I now had a spot for that shelf. Of course Dwight was super sweet and hung it for me. I have all my rubons, aplha packs and such hanging from here and I love it. So much easier to find what I need.



Here is a shot of my space. It's just perfect. Everything is within reach, I can sit or stand, I just love it. I've even started recycling my paper. I know, should have been doing that all along, but I'm really making an effort now. I did find out that photo paper is NOT recycleable. To bad, but hopefully one day it will be. (and btw, you do not see 5 cropper hoppers full of pp and cs. it's all a figment of your imagination)






Just a note, if you want to sign up for my card class, email or call me to confirm and to also let me know how many cards you would like to make (12 or 15). You are more than welcome to invite a friend(s) as long as you confirm them and how many cards they also would like to make.


I would also like to offer an advanced card technique class. We make fewer cards but they are more detailed/time consuming and "not for the weak at heart." mwahahahahahaha Thinking the end of July when it's +35 out there.

Also, time for some blog candy. That is if you've made it this far. (I hear my dog snoring at my feet) As you know, it's retirement time, so my blog candy question is.................How many sets did I lose to retirement this time?? (not including hostess sets)
A prize you ask?? Well, a retired set of course. I have a few stashed away for times like this. I'll dig one tomorrow and post it.

Good night all.

Love your organizational ideas... the curtain rods for holding punches is brilliant! Definitely going to be using that one here. Very cool use of the shelf/towel bar for the clipitup clips and the stickers. I'll guess that you lost 14 sets to retirement this time...

I really need to start taking better inventory when I come down. That just shows I don't come down to scrap. Shame on me. But I will say 12 sets you have lost. If you do actually find that 12 of your sets are indeed lost Blame Carol.

I have a towel bar that's been in our closet since the first month we moved in here. I just need to find a place where I can use it to clip my stuff up! I still have room envy. It's such a great space. I'm gonna say 13 sets because it's unlucky.

Sign me up for your card class! Miss doing some paper work with you! After curling season we HAVE to pick a day to scrap away! Eva can come too even though she thinks I'm a theif! LOL
