I'm Back!

Well, I've been MIA again.....I spent the summer getting my son ready for Japan.  He's been gone for a month now.  I'm missing him so much.  So I thought...I need to keep busy.  That's when I decided to get cleaning and reorganizing my craft/scrap room!  

I will be doing this step-by-step series showing you how my scrap room is coming along!

So for this first post, I show you my "before" pictures! 

I know, I know....holy scrap-hoard batman!  Yes, I've amassed quite a lot of "stuff"!  If you want to know how this mound of crafty goodness came to be, check out my recent video explaining why I'm such a scrapbooking hoarder/addict!  

VIDEO WARNING:  This video has been known to make you almost pee your pants!  So make sure you have an extra pair available....just sayin'.  ;)

Now that you have an idea of how I collected all this "stuff", maybe you can now understand why I can't seem to find anything!  LOL!  I end up buying doubles because I can't remember the stuff I bought!  And I only have a little square craft mat to work on.  I need more room!  This room NEEDS to be cleaned!  So I started by going through my paper pad (mostly DCWV) stacks, and reorganizing them.  Just alphabetizing them really.

I then moved on to sorting all my flowers.  That was a chore-and-a-half!  I took all the flowers out of their packages, and sorted them by color!  I don't think I'll have to buy any more flowers for a very long time (but you know I will)!  I will show you in my next post what I put them in....yes, you have to wait!  :)

So this is my first post in my Scraproom Organization series.  Please leave me a comment and tell me why you decided to clean your scrap/craft room.  Also...are there any storage ideas that really worked for you?  I would love to know!
