Organizing.....

Hi, Everybody,

I mentioned earlier that I've been watching 2 organizational challenges this last month or so.

I would be the first to say my craft area was organized. That was before I started to listen to all the ideas  Get Organized Scrapbook Storage Solutions by scrapbook.com and Get Organized Challenge by TheScraprack.com have about how to store all your goodies. Lots of good ideas and now I've torn my place apart to take advantage of these cool ideas just before I have the AtoZ Challenge. What is wrong with me.
Here is a picture or two of what I consider chaos.
Good excuse not to ride the bike.

The top of the island is normally cleared off.

Fall on the floor awaiting a storage bin.Even the cats got right into it, although they were more interested in the outside happenings than the inside ones.
From the left, Max, Linus, Lucy and Goldie.
Still quite a bit of snow in the yard. They were watching a robin.
That was yesterday. Today is worse, stuff strewn all over, but I do see an end to the tunnel. I am reorganizing the stamps by theme or subject no matter the brand. I am tired of looking in 3-4 places for a birthday saying or a stamp of a tree. Yes, I have the drawers and bins labelled, but you still have to look. Now all birthday related stuff will be in one drawer, including bows, cakes, cupcakes. All wedding and love stuff in one drawer no matter who makes it.

I am excited to get going. So that is all for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Only 13 more days until we start the Challenge. Whoopee!!!!

I keep reorganizing my very small craft room and yet it always looks like there's been an explosion. My fiance' is a little scared of that room. lol

You do NOT want to see my room. Scary! LoL!

I like the idea of organizing stamps by theme. Are you putting them in a binder?

Thank you, Ladies, for your comments. I can't work in a messy room. Not comfortable at all. I have become a neat freak in my older years. I get hyper when I'm in a stamp store and the stamps are mixed up. Not to say that when I am making cards or scrapping my room doesn't get messy. That's what my island top is for. Where the cats are sitting is my actual crafting desk. The top of the island is my dumping zone as I work.

Ultimately I will be cataloging the stamps by taking photos or prints of them. Right now just getting like things together will make me happy.

Organized chaos is the only way to go. So glad you're looking forward to the Challenge:)
