Whats on your workdesk? Wednesday

Okay I did this for 3 reasons....
1. To show my progress of cleaning/organizing...(maybe it will help motivate some of you....ahem...DAWN?!) LOL! I watched your video!
It has taken me a few days to complete and I did the best I could without purchasing anything new to organize because we are in the process of selling our house to move.
2. Participate in WOYWD.
3. Stamping Vacations Supplies Unite #3 Challenge

****Before reading any further I'm sorry the pictures are all wonky and the wording is out of sorts...blogger isn't cooperating and I'm not sure how to fix it. But it is readable so please continue! :)

First off we have my folding work table....what a wreck!! The biggest thing I did here was put all colored scrap paper in a box and all plain white scraps in a separate box. I keep the colored scraps on the table in that MacBook box. Did you notice something else changed?? Maybe a different paper trimmer??!! I will share more about that in a different post!





Next we have my poor poor floor....I utilized a bunch of baskets and boxes to organize my stuff and actually put them away or stacked them up instead of having them scattered everywhere! Looks better I think! Not perfect...but better. :)


Finally we have my desk...oh boy! How did I create anything in that mess? I actually put things away...gasp! I know it is hard to believe but I put stuff in drawers and those cups I have hanging on the wall. WOW, what a difference that made! LOL! I feel so much better walking into that room and knowing I can find things easier and that it looks a little nicer. I think it brought my creativity back too as you can tell from all my posts!



If your still with me I want to thank you once again for all the lovely and thoughtful comments you leave for me...makes me smile knowing people care! :)

Stacie,

This looks great. I keep holding off on showing my area because it is so messy, but I'm gonna just do it. I don't think it will get very clean anytime soon. Love the Ikea holder. I had those too for my Copics, but took them back cause I had something better already in my possession. Love Ikea though. Also, I'm wondering what the Pop Tart box is for...hee hee. Snacks or scraps???

What a wonderful collections of craft goodies you have. Those cups hanging on the wall would be very handy. Great to see other people get as messy as me. :-)
