PM pole 2 - "The most creative storage idea that someone shared and you have used." - $10 sb.com GC

Voting will begin August 1st and end August 7th.




During our last challenge we shared a lot of GREAT ideas!! I loved the paper keepers made from the postal boxes, oh and the ribbon shelves were Awesome! One room started with just a TV tray and blossomed unto a nice scrapping space, another started out a boys room and was transformed into a ladies retreat. Oh gosh then there is the beautiful lavender room and the apple green room that’s shared by a mother and her daughter. Oh and you should see the Coca-Cola Scrapper!! We even got to see the beauty of a “rag rolled” room. We had too many great ideas to mention them all, the list seriously goes on and on. There were a few of us who completely gutted our rooms and painted. WOW what fun! (yea right! I’ll never paint stripes in a room again!)

So jump on in…get you a little note book and jot down those goals, plan a budget, and start the wish list. It doesn’t matter if your space is small or a huge room what matters is organizing the space for your needs and making it your very own dream space.


Here is what we will be working on:



Week 1.

Pick-up and put away pick-up and put away everything that is on the floor. We need to make sure we don’t have any tripping hazards.

Clean off desk – completely clean off your desk. Yep, this means take everything off the desk and wipe it down. Once you’ve got a clean desk sit there for a few minutes and think about what tools you really need at your finger tips, tools you use for every page. (for me that would be my scissors, regular pen, pencil, eraser, hole punch etc…) these items you can put back on your desk in a “with-in reach” location. Everything else you will need to find a home for. You have 7 days to complete this task. Take a pic and post the clean desk.
Done!


Week 2 & 3

Purge – OK here we go. Get a notebook and pen and keep it close by to jot things down, wish lists, etc... This is where we really tend to be pack rats (at least I do). After all we are croppers not collectors. Take a box and put it in the middle of your room along with a trash can or trash bag. Pick one corner of the room and begin. Toss giveaways into the box and items that there’s no longer a use for in the trash. (you would be surprised at all the dried up bottles of paint I found during one of my previous challenges). Wipe down and clean off all containers as you go. As you are going along, think about how this storage is working for you and if you need to make changes or not. (does this need to be closer to your desk or further away) If you need to make changes either during this challenge or in the future stop and jot it down. You have 2 weeks to complete this task.
Done!


Week 4, 5, & 6.

We are continuing to purge and clean. Our floors should be cleaned, our desk should be cleaned off and now we are going to get in to the heavy organizing. Ok how many of you actually have something in a purge box? Take a pic and show us your purge box.

Week 7, 8, & 9

We are finally in the home stretch, well at least some of you are. From this point on we should be finishing up on the purging and getting everything in its place. The best way to find out if you have organized things where they work best is to scrap something. Work in your room for a week and let us know how your organizing is working. Post your work too so we can leave some love.

If everything is working out great it's time to make your space your own. Many of you have already started the decorating process. But the end of the challenge and last three weeks we will be concentrating on decorating our spaces.


Week 10, 11 &12

The Final 3 weeks. It’s time to make your space your own and decorate with items that inspire you. The sky is the limit here. Have fun and please share the pics!!

Marking my spot, I will post goals this evening!

Wow Vickie you got in quick and ya better stay in!! hehehe

Hi Janet, Hi Joda! Few now I know I have got to get everything completed! Will post goals left, later.

If you would like to check out what I have completed in the first challenge click here!

Also, I have made a new album for part to as well, part 2! Thank you Joda for you collective late night thoughts! I love what you have done with your room thus far!

Hi everyone else that has joined!

MY GOALS!!!:

Finish painting - the small wall where my tv is.
Ink pads, and stamps – Find a storage solution whether it is the cassette holder or some other logical storage. Maybe a art bin container, take the lid off and stand it up with inks upside down. Need rubber stamp storage not sure if I will take them off the blocks.
Foam stamps – Get an art bin for all my rubber stamps
Chipboard and Diecut - Purchase another art bin for my chip board and diecut letters
Flower Storage - I am thinking to make sure to get the 2 drawer cube and the deviders for my flower storage.
Stickers and Rub-ons – I think in altered ziplock bags
Chipboard embellishments – Get all of these in one general location. (cubes)
Other Embellishments – Purchase another
Trimmers – Need to figure out where to put my blade trimmer that will be easy to use and not in my way.
Hand tools – These need to be within reach, most used items on desk top. I bought a 12x12 sterlite container for my tools and much used supplies now I need to organize it.
Ribbons – Organize my candy jar of loose ribbon with floss cards. Use push pins to keep my spooled ribbon neat in my drawer.
Large Sterlite Drawers – after purchasing cubes for my desk move the large drawers to my black shelves.
Shelf for desk – try to figure out a way to add a shelf for my desk top for additional storage, not sure if this will work.
Organize and Archive Photo’s – I plan to add all my photo’s currently on my computer to my picasa web album for easy use, then archive them to cd’s.
Find a definite home for all my supplies – purchase metal sheet to hang for metal containers. Debating on purchasing a peg board.
Finish Altered Room Projects - to decorate my room and buy curtain and rod.

I am pretty sure that I will be adding more to my goals.

Yeah! This is my first challenge! I'm definitely in!

Goals:
To convert our office into my scraproom!Organize all of my stuff in 1 room (it's currently in 4 different locations).
Stop buying & start scrapping! Okay, to be quite honest I haven't completely stopped buying, but I've definitely slowed down & I've definitely started scrapping!

1. DONE!12 x 12 paper storage - out in the open so I can actually see what I have without digging through a huge stack in the closet!
2. In ProgressRibbon storage - currenty I don't have much ribbon to store, but what I do have is just thrown in a little rubbermaid box

3. Alter & label wood storage drawers from ikea

4. DONE!Put shelves up & get rid of some of my rubbermaid storage bins (the more storage I have, the more I seem to buy to fill it!)
I think that's it for now... we already redid the floor & painted last month so I don't want to give my DH too much more work to do!

Scraproom

Here's a link to my  Scraproom  as of today!I'd like to join too! :)Although I've just started scrapbookiing.. I have a bunch of stuff.. but nothing that really warrants purging.. and I've sort of already started the transformation.. however I will try to find some before photos! or at least show the current space!My Goals:- a wrap around desk with several station.. - one for the computer/printer/cricut- a "messy station" glueing/embossing etc.- a station for cutting so i don't have to move my stuff around, with a basket attached to the end for the cuts.- I want tons of shelving and misc boxed/baskets etc to keep scraps in, - some nice 12x12 paper holders and a great colour scheme! :)- I want a large table sort of in the middle so I can keep a few layouts there as I go.. I'm so tired of having to move my layouts out of the way everytime I need to cut or draw or glue or whatever.. - organize ribbon- store stickles/inks/embossing powders etc..- Organize embellishments- take more pictures!!!- organize chipboard alphas and shapes- create an inspiration book- find a creative way to store scraps - find paper storage- organize photos on the computer into categories/dates.. not sure which yet.- organize thread/floss for stitching.

I am still kind of new to the whole dedicated scrapbook thing...ive loved scrapbooking since high but i havent really had time to pursue it. My last day of college was April 2 2008...about two weeks ago!!! So i am planning to have lots free time. I dont really have that many supplies... only a ablum kit and a couple of page kits...but i plan to expand my arsenal once i have an organized shell to fill in!!! And also, i plan to keep a blog of my process and thoughs..if you wanna check it out...

So my goals are as follows:

  • Form a specfic plan/ calendar
  • Figure out the type of storage (shelves, book cases, cubes, etc)
  • Create a layout with the furniture pieces
  • Figure out what tools and supplies i want to have
  • Figure out what type of storage is best for each type on material
  • Sort and organize everything in to the new solution
  • Sort by type of supply first, then by color
  • Figure out a theme/color scheme for room
  • Decorate room with final details



Im still thinking...so ill add more later...if i figure some out.

I will need to be a 'lifer' on this I think, if I ever want to keep my area useable! No wonder I needed a whole room where I lived before! Not having much doesn't seem to matter when it comes to making a gigantic mess just trying to think of what to do with a lay out!
So, my goals are:

1. Determine what tools & supplies make it easier for me to scrapbook in the styles I love.

2. Make a list and purchase these tools or supplies as they go on sale/coupon when I have the $ to.

3. Find a way to organize what I have in an attracive yet functional manner.

4. Put my tools & talents to work, and actually MAKE some LAY OUTS!

Thanks for helping me!

I can't believe it is already April 19th. We've had snow off and on the last few days, and it is snowing now, and supposed to this weekend. We don't usually even get snow! Thank God it isn't sticking...so far!

I think I may need bereavement counseling, or else I'm going to have to start writing. Or both.
If the snow stops, or it warms up, I'm going to go walk through the Tacoma Mall or something.

I will join the challenge, but I since I don't actually get the key to our house until probably May 19, I don't think I will be able to do much until then. But I am still trying to get ideas of what I can do for the room.

So my goal is mainly just to have a scrapbook room, since I have never had one before. So I want to create a space to keep all my stuff organized.

I've worked off and on all day in my room and I'm very proud of my progress!!

All of my chipboard is now organized. I've moved some books into the room, emptied embossing powders into the spice jars, completely finished one of the wall shelves on the embellishment wall, painted letters for the Cropper Hopper card box (which I'll stick on before I go to bed), moved the TV again, moved all my rub-ons into the file boxes, made my final list of things to get, and almost cleaned off my scrapping table. Oh I forgot I swapped out my "to alter" box too, I no longer have the cardboard box holding that stuff but a pretty BRIGHT orange woven basket. LOL!

My HUGE purge box is filling up rather quickly!! I'll take a pic of that before I go to bed too and then another one when I'm finished purging...

I wish we still had the dumpster down the road...I've filled up the garbage can with broken down boxes and garbage doesn't run again until next Tuesday. Our trash is backing up LOL!

That is a busy day Janet!!

Last night I purchased some cubes for paper woot woto! but I forgot to buy zip ties haha... so that task'll be completed this evening and then I can sort.. yay!!

For now I'm going to try to go by tones.. for cardstock and pp --- see if I can find something else for coordinated paper.. I dunno it's all so difficult!

How do you colourize paper that's got equal amounts or each paper.. OR double-sided!? (PS - I hate double-sided paper lol.. you gotta pay more.. but the designs are usually fabulous.. but I usually use eyelets and brads and stuff... and the "back side" just wouldn't look nice!

paper is always a problem for everyone I believe. carstock I sort by color, PP first by theme, birthday, Christmas, easter, Halloween, baby, Seasons etc... then by what is printed on the paper circles, floral, squares, words, alphas, etc...and each group are sorted in this way by color light to dark, then I have some sorted by manufacture. Double sided cardstock and PP has it's own different section, I use a lot of it for the word books, great to use for lettering the front always matches the back, and for torn and curled sections like the side of a mat for a frame.

This is basically what I do too...CS by color, PP by theme then color. Double-sided I store based on the side I'm most likely to use.

hope those broken down boxes are in the recycling can

Actually, I can relate to the full can issue. Vegas drives me nuts in this department. We have garbage pick up twice a week...guess that kinda makes sense because of the heat. But recycling pick up every other week...GGRRRRR. My recycling is running over the bins within a couple days of the pick-up and with the memorabilia sort/purge I'm doing it's about twice as bad as normal

I started scanning in howto articles from old dollhouse magazines last night...6 mos down 9.5 years to go. will be nice to get them onto cds though.
Also get to go pick up the tv stand tonight, early enough so I might get the tv and stereo equipment moved onto it.
Guess I'll clear off and clean the desktop this weekend and work on sorting those plastic drawers.

Double sided cardstock and PP has it's own different section, I use a lot of it for the word books, great to use for lettering the front always matches the back, and for torn and curled sections like the side of a mat for a frame.




Great ideas for the pp! Thanks!

I started scanning in howto articles from old dollhouse magazines last night...6 mos down 9.5 years to go. will be nice to get them onto cds though.
Also get to go pick up the tv stand tonight, early enough so I might get the tv and stereo equipment moved onto it.
Guess I'll clear off and clean the desktop this weekend and work on sorting those plastic drawers.




I told DH I would like a tv to put in my room - his response "You area already in there all the time so if we put a tv in there we might as well put a bed in there too!" MEN!

I've worked off and on all day in my room and I'm very proud of my progress!!

All of my chipboard is now organized. I've moved some books into the room, emptied embossing powders into the spice jars, completely finished one of the wall shelves on the embellishment wall, painted letters for the Cropper Hopper card box (which I'll stick on before I go to bed), moved the TV again, moved all my rub-ons into the file boxes, made my final list of things to get, and almost cleaned off my scrapping table. Oh I forgot I swapped out my "to alter" box too, I no longer have the cardboard box holding that stuff but a pretty BRIGHT orange woven basket. LOL!

My HUGE purge box is filling up rather quickly!! I'll take a pic of that before I go to bed too and then another one when I'm finished purging...

I wish we still had the dumpster down the road...I've filled up the garbage can with broken down boxes and garbage doesn't run again until next Tuesday. Our trash is backing up LOL!





I am glad you are making progress...no progress here. I really need to start making some though. I can't wait to see your room when it is done.

That is a busy day Janet!!

Last night I purchased some cubes for paper woot woto! but I forgot to buy zip ties haha... so that task'll be completed this evening and then I can sort.. yay!!

For now I'm going to try to go by tones.. for cardstock and pp --- see if I can find something else for coordinated paper.. I dunno it's all so difficult!

How do you colourize paper that's got equal amounts or each paper.. OR double-sided!? (PS - I hate double-sided paper lol.. you gotta pay more.. but the designs are usually fabulous.. but I usually use eyelets and brads and stuff... and the "back side" just wouldn't look nice!



I agree sorting paper is a difficult task. I sorted mine by theme and I also have a couple of misc. drawers for those odd ball papers that don't fit a theme.

I like that plastic thing for all your pens and pencils scrapbook girl!

Oh and my husband said if I put a TV in here he'd never see me again haha.. my response was: "You can come visit :)" hehe

Heere's how I'm going to do my paper storage.... so far.. haha

Cardstock sorted by tone, I don't have enough for a pile of burgandy, pink and red separated so theyre going together.

I'm going to go with multi-functional pp by colour (so that'll be smaller polkadots, small patterns that can be mixed with other patterened paper..)

then I'll do pp but large prints, like forals and flourishes etc...

I don't have any themed stuff yet, I might when I start doing more of the family albums.. but hopefully this will work for now!

you all have been busy busy. I went to m's today to see if i can pick up atleast one of my storage cube things and they dont carry the white ones anymore only the dark wood. grrr. so now I have to think of something else for my desk and more scrap storage. we live in an appt. and our walls are so thin that I can;t hang a shelf up it just comes right out the wall and makes a big hole in the wall. I really hate it

That stinks about the cubes! I know Target has them too...not sure if they are the same dimensions though. I hear ya about not being about to hang things on the walls. I have concrete walls down here that have sheet rock on them so I have the same problem. I don't want to drill into the concrete.

omg! I know!

Usually my whole house is in dark wood etc.. it's my style..

So when I did my scraproom I said to myself.. instead of doing it modern, I'll go white with everything because it's usually a bit cheaper and more abundant!

Well then Michaels only has the dark wood blocks!! I feel your pain!

I know I usually like the wood and everything but I was thinking for future use when we get our house I wanted to paint my walls turquiose and dark wood just wouldnt fit the bill lol. but target still has them just sucks you can;t use cpns. darn them.
but I just talked to my dh and he said if you by the dark wood and kilos white spray paint it will be just fine. so there may an option and save money that way. just an idea

I find it easier to keep paper stacks/sets together and not break them out by colors. If you bought papers individually then I'd sort them by the projects you intended to use them for. If you just bought them because they were pretty/on impulse, scrap them now and not worry about how to sort.

I'm back and trying to catch up on all the images from here and on other challenges.

The concrete was pored but the wall isn't finished. Maybe tomorrow? I don't know. I know I won't be doing any moving of stuff this Saturday. I plan on scrapping for NSBD here on sb.c.

This is for you ribbonholics. Instead of having to find places for all those lovely ribbons, scrap them. I just saw this beautiful layout that used ribbons in a way I've not seen before:

oh my.. I never realized how much pp I had that i HATE until i started organizing it..

I'm strange.. lol because I was originally going to store it by type.. like polka etc.. but I find myself not wanting to stack my favourite papers with the not so favourite.... as if they're too good for the uglies haha..

I might just make a few trays of coloured pp... there's a few I don't mind but probably won't use until I have kids (like really pale blues/pinks)...

*sigh*
