Where did my Sunday Go?!
Well, I spent my Sunday - or at least 8 hours of it anyway - In the Closet :)
The Closet of my Craft Room!
My Craft Room is more than that... It is where my computer is, it is where I do all of my crafting, it is where I store my photography "stuff" and my Dog Training "stuff" and my magazines, my books... you get the idea... it's where my "everything" is kept!
And it's not that large a room! It's not small, by any means, but it's not "large" either!
It has a decent size closet, and my husband installed 2 walls of shelves in it for me, but it got to the point where I couldn't close the door :) There were simply too many piles of "stuff" for me to close it! And, the shelves were getting messy too! I had to DO something about the mess! So, about 9am, I grabbed a cup of coffee and headed upstairs. About 8 hours later, I came down, feeling like I had accomplished something but...not quite believing that what I did accomplish, took 8 hours!
Of course, I also re-arranged 5 shelves of my two main bookcases as well :)
I wish I had taken "before photos". It truly was a disaster and this is certainly an improvement!
I love that I now have 2 shelves of my bookcase devoted to my Stampin' Up! Designer Papers and 12x12 Cardstocks. I do need to go out and buy a few more packages of the storage sleeves! I have A LOT of 12x12 paper!
I also love that I now have all of my (old style) Stampin' Up! wood-mount stamps lined up on shelves where I can see each and every one of them! Before, they were in the bookcase and double stacked (front to rear) so I had to dig around when I wanted something.
I also love that I can now triple-stack my white "shoe boxes" - gaining more storage for things that I need to store away but can access quickly!
I also gained more room for additional stamp sets and a whole shelf for my photography equipment! If (ok, when) the time comes that I need an additional shelf for stamps, I can go back to the closet and force myself to purge some stuff to make room for my camera bags in there! It will be a win-win :)
In the meantime, I am smiling because I can now choose to have the closet door open - and have the view of my organized stamps and boxes to look at - instead of the piles and piles of "stuff" nagging at me :)
All in all, I guess it was a good Sunday :)
