Well, it has been 4 weeks of re-organizational bliss! And now it is over. I have three nicely organized and more functional spaces in which to work. Kitchen was good, Linen/Hall closets were good, my office?
Well, it turned out GREAT! So great that I pretty much want to spend all my time in it!
There is still work to be done (mostly filing. Ugh), but I can actually come in here and work and craft and be creative. I'm so excited!
The rest of this post will mostly be pictures and explanations. Enjoy! (Before pics are HERE).
Panorama of the Office
(you may notice that I did not photograph one side of the closet. It is not because I am hiding all my clutter there, but because it houses stuff for Diesel's work that I am not supposed to show)
|Sixth (center of pic) shelf: File boxes filled with project supplies|
Bottom shelf: more future project supplies and a box of stuff to file
|Close up of one of the file bins. I use it for storing our paper, labels, manila folders, etc. vertically. |
Makes it much easier to access this way.
|Close up of my file boxes: one filled with notepads, binders, etc. The other two are project supplies.|
|Top two shelves are photo albums/scrapbooks with room to grow. |
And "placeholder" chotchkies until I can figure out what I want to put there!
|First shelf is boxes of scrapbooking supplies|
Second shelf is more supplies, scrapbooking reference materials, and the 12x12
boxes are where I store memory stuff for each of the boys and for the family.
|I think you know what that is! :)|
Scrapbooking Cabinet (and annex)
|Vertical supply storage. This is where I keep the majority of my stickers and |
embellishments in Cropper Hopper sticker envelopes
|Cutting tools, more paper storage and an empty 12x12 box|
|Paper. Probably wouldn't hurt to go through this and purge some paper.|
|The scrapbooking cabinet "annex." has individual, take it with you sized boxes in it. This is where I store scrapbooking projects that I am working on/will be working on.|
|Supplies for scrapbooking Little Man's 4th birthday party photos. Which I will get to soon. Right after I finish his second birthday and then start on his 3rd. Good thing his birthday is in 4 months and he'll be five. I'm not behind, right?|
|In an effort to keep the desk as clear as possible, I moved some storage up onto the side of|
the scrapbook cabinet, and hung a little collage of family photos up above it.
|Stuff that will be on the wall above my desk soon. Perpetual calendar, magnet board, inspirational quotes, etc.|
|Diesel built me this chair to match my desk. He's awesome.|
|Luckily, my office mate is cuter than his kennel. |
Yes. His kennel is labelled. Little Man insisted that we label it back when we lived at the
Original Cluttered House, back when I was making mail sorters for everyone in the family.
So how did your organization projects go this week? I'd love to hear about them (and see them?)
