Yesterday morning I got up and took one look at my scrapbook room/studio/office...whatever you call it...and just couldn't stand the mess anymore! I was totally overwhelmed by products...some as old as the oldest scrapbook papers (anyone remember Kangaroo and Joey or Frances Meyer?) As many times as I've cleaned things out, there are some things that I have a hard time parting with! Once again I purged, this time more relentlessly, throwing some stuff in the garbage (do I really need to save every empty little plastic container from the old Making Memories product?) and putting lots of stuff aside for another scrapbook garage sale (what do you think, Kelli?)
This is what my room looked like yesterday morning: (you can click on a picture to make it larger to get the full impact of all the STUFF!)
Michaels has 40% off this week on white modular cubes, so I headed there a bought 10! I am so thankful for my handy husband who spent the evening assembling the cubes as I sorted through the masses. We took down the shelves on the left side of the window, which involved taking down the top shelf for a minute in order to get the bracket out. A bigger mess before if got better! If you look closely, you can see the cat behind the boxes. :)
I was up until almost 2am putting things back together and today I finished it up. Oh, my! I love it!
Let's see those side by side...
Not only does the hubby assemble cubes...he brings me roses! How lucky am I! (Pam, do you see the sugar shakers in the background? I got the turquoise one at the Alameda Flea Market in CA.) This is a close up of the little shelf under my papers. Some of favorite things! I got the shell-covered shoe at Goodwill in FL. So precious!
I'm making my way around the room...I'll add more pictures to this post tomorrow!
