I think I've lost my mind!!! I've decided to take part in the Organize Your Stuff Challenge over at 2peasinabucket. It's Crisann's last time to host it (it's the 5th run since the original Wookiemouse posted this challenge back in 2009) and well...it's time for me to get a handle on my space.
I love my room, it's the brightest room in the house with the largest window. Mr Gulley put in a new floor that I just love, it's a laminate that is light in color and matches the oak counter top of my scrap desk and shelves. The room is painted a pale yellow with white trim, which I love. I'm toying with the idea of putting a french door on the room (I only close the door when Mr Gulley is watching a scary movie with the surround sound at full throttle in the other room).
I share my room with the home office, which of course is my office since Mr Gulley prefers to use his laptop in front of his "ginormous" TV in the living room. I have a huge desk that I use to do school work when I am in school or pile up random scrapbook stuff on when I'm not in school. Currently I am not taking any classes but I will be applying to graduate school in December so I may be back in school in January so I need to keep the large desk for now.
Week #1 space audit:
I must be crazy!! With the holidays approaching and having so much to do to get ready for them I have decided to do this challenge.
Paper sorted by color.
Embellishments sorted in color bins.
Stamps in drawer tower.
Kits kept together.
Travel supplies kept together.
Ribbons on the wall.
My ink pads are easily to see and pull.
My tools are fairly easy to access.
What doesn't work:
-That my paper is so tight I sometimes have trouble pulling out what I want.
-That some of my embellishments get bent and I don't have all of my embellishments in my bins.
-That I have stamps I don't use and they are taking up space.
-That my sticker folders don't support my sticker and they get bent.
-That I have a box full of ribbons wound up and a jar full of bits and pieces that aren't really organized.
-I don't always remember which punches I have and therefore I don't use them often enough.
*I have chipboard everywhere.
*I have storage units that aren't used in the best ways.
*I have project spread all over my room.
*My quickutz storage binder is too heavy and needs to be redone (I'm currently working on this one).
*Only 1 person can scrap at my desk.
