"This Year" update, sort of

I really have been quite busy doing my best to organize my craft room.  Right now, you wouldn't believe it  because it looks like a tornado hit it.  Saturday, DH  and I spent a number of hours putting together some of those Organized Living cubes you can get at Michael's  or JoAnns(I got mine at a deep discount combining a 60% off sale with an additional 25% off entire purchase coupon - whoohoo), and I am really pleased with how they turned out.  But, I needed to find wall space for them and decide how I was going to fill them, etc.  Two days later, and the cubes are full, but so is the middle of the room.  I can't just do anything the easy way, I have to decide to go through all my stash and other junk and try and cull some things.  Came up  with probably 100 Southern Living and Midwest Living and BH &G magazines that I was going to get around to reading sometime.....  Since I can't recycle them, and my kids don't want them, I think I am going to put them up on ebay. I really can't stand the idea of filling a land fill with them.  I still have several bookcases to go through and pitch or organize, but when I am done, it will be wonderful!!

The lone picture I have for you today is my completed boxes of DMC with at least two bobbins of every color in them.  They are on a bookcase that probably won't be messed with much.  Next weekend I plan to not only have my updated WIPocalypse photo, but maybe even some pictures of my "newly organized" craft room.

Until then, thank you so much for visiting my blog and for posting such lovely comments.  Until next time, have a happy, healthy, stitchy time!!

Taking the time to get organized leaves a great feeling, doesn't it? One of these days... Look forward to seeing how yours turns out.

It sounds like you have had fun playing in your stash (oops getting organised...LOL). Look forward to seeing pictures of your craft room when it is all done and organised.

If the don't sell on ebay, Beth, try giving the magazines to your local library. We accept them at mine and sell them in our little library bookstore to raise money for new materials.

I'm looking forward to seeing your finished re-organization :)
