Organize This Mess Blog Hop April 24, 2012

Organize this Mess.....we look at our creative space and just wonder where we put that thing, all my scissors, that we had just used two weeks ago, past Tuesday, of the 3rd of the month. We know that feeling oh soooooo well!!!! I pride myself in my organized "clutter"! Wouldn't it be wonderful to know where everything is and that there is a place for everything and everything in its place!!!!

That's what this hop is hoping to do! Trying to give helpful hints on storage, clever ways to keep things and just organize the mess!!!!!!

There is a very creative cluttered group to help us along this path.  We hope you can find the time to organize and hop along with us while we "declutter" along the way!!!! Of course there will be some blog candy to add to "your" organized clutter if you comment along the way and don't miss a single blog!

If you just happened to be visiting me today, I am ever so glad, but  don't want you to miss an organized stop.  So please start at the beginning, at Kimberlys.  She's going to give us a jump start on cleaning this mess! If you have arrived from Linda - then you are more organized than I am!

Here are the many pictures I have to show you my craftroom and how I organized it. I like to work in a tidy, well organized room or I can't get things done.
My closet

My cricut cartridges

My 2 cricut jukeboxes

Part of my stash of mulberry paper for tear bears and flowers

Some of my travel bags

My rolling cart that holds my different stamp sets.

My rolling cart that has all my punches and stencils in it plus my copic marker.

My plastic tote on top contains my scrap papers and the tote below it holds my 8.5 by 11 paper.

Pugsley's dog bed and the cabinet where I hold misc. things I don't use too often.

My extra small paper pads and mat sets.

The top shelf has the rest of my stash of mulberry paper in the bins and the other shelf holds sticker machines, my gypsy, my card holder, and my charms are housed in the black drawers with another charm holder and an extra white bag with more charms.

This is the closeup of the card holder and the charms drawers.

The top drawer has my chalks and inks in it, the second drawer has designed borders in it and the bottom drawer has my two embossing tools in it. 

The shelf with the black tote on it contains all my card making supplies in it and around it.  The white tote on the bottom shelf holds my flowers in it and as you can see, I store my cinch in it's original box.

These are special plastic totes for my Christmas and Halloween stamps.

This is my cardstock paper and my embellishment center.

These green and white cloth bins hold most of my embellishments.

The shelf on top holds extra papers, books, glue bottles, receipts and cd's with patterns on them.  The circular tote holds my special scissors, some extra markers and some of my regular craft scissors.  The white drawered unit holds my sew craft items, my cinch materials and my finished cards.

This is the new desk that I have been searching for and finally found one at a garage sale for 25$ and fits perfectly in my room.  I finally got my new cricut imagine and put it on the desk and started using it recently.  It is so much fun to use.

This embellishment center holds my flocking and embossing powders, my glitters and stickles and my ribbon.  Below is where I store my finished layouts that I haven't sold or haven't put into my many albums.

This is the other side of my desk and below I have album pages kits and also my paper bag album supplies.

This is pugsley watching me as I take pictures of my craftroom.

Sorry for the dark room but this is a picture of my room from the doorway.

Right side of room.

Left side of room where I put a shelf up recently to hold some things I couldn't find room for.

The white drawered tote has some more cardstock and designer paper in it and the bottom drawer also contains more scrap papers.

The brown wooden slots hold my many holiday designer paper pads.  The white drawers hold my tear bear supplies, all my glue and tape products and the third drawer holds my dad's pictures I need to make a special album for.  The bottom 4 smaller drawers holds flourishes, dots, jewels, stamp pads and inks.

The top drawer holds marker sets, the second drawer holds Princess Papers and accessories and the third drawer holds Mickey and Friends papers and accessories.  The bottom drawers hold jewels, some flowers and alphabets.

This basket is where I put the things I am working on and have not finished yet.

This basket holds more mat papers.

One of my favorite layouts.

This is the table where I do most of my projects at.

This is my date book where I write down all my projects and blog hops.  Without this, I would be lost.

My shelf which has my theresa collins stampmaker and most of my other ribbons.

This shelf holds my many albums and different projects I have completed.

This is my sticker clip it up made with a shoe rack bought at Target.

This is my travel bag I pack and take to crop events.

Different embellishments.

More embellishments.

Even more embellishments.

My older cricut expressions and the anniversary edition of the Cricut Expressions 2 on a rolling cart to be moved around the room where I need it.

OH OH OH I can't wait to come play in your room - - I love your stash of mulberry paper - you need to teach me how to do tear bears - - I have seen them, and I think a lot of your patterns would be great for that.
