3) Mini Organization Challenges - Three Weekday and one Weekend Challenge

scraproom makeover 2012-before By Scrappin Kitty


1) Grace/ Hanging by a Moment
2) Room
3) I love to organize... it's being devoted to put things away.
4) http://www.scrapbook.com/myplace/index.php?mod=gallerie...
i am terrible at staying organized By Hanging By A Moment


1) Becky/AuntJo
2) 11x14 room...but only 8x8 1/2 feet are dedicated to my space.
3) biggest problem area....PHOTOS!
4)Scrapbook Room Gallery


1)Valerie(Val)/izzyw0611
2)Room (I'll try and get dimensions 2morrow)
3)Everywhere! My family tends to put things that they don't know what to do with in my scraproom when cleaning. Also, after I buy new scrappy things I tend to toss the bag in my room quickly (so my dh doesn't see I went shopping again! ), and after I open and admire the items I receive from swaps I usually leave them lying on my desk. I'm so busy with work and family I don't have time or energy to organize, and then it gets so piled up that when I do have time I get so overwhelmed I don't know where to start, so I don't! HELP!
4) My Scraproom


Laurie/LJCarta
The Breakfast Nook
My biggest problem is that I have stuff I don't use and too much stuff in general.
I will post pictures tomorrow.


1) Melissa/melissa_w
2) Shared space - dining room/scrap area
3) Keeping my tabletop clear.
4) http://www.scrapbook.com/myplace/index.php?mod=gallerie...


1) Kelly/KellyCali
2) Corner room
3) Biggest problem area - Unfinished projects/completed layouts/lack of proper storage
4) http://www.scrapbook.com/myplace/index.php?mod=gallerie...


1. Anna/provinca
2. I scrap in my unfinished basement. The "room" is set up like a living room (tv, etc.) and my "stuff" is along one wall.
3. I LOVE to organize and find myself doing it over and over again, but somethings just never seem to work just right for too long -- that's where I am now.
4. I'll post pictures as soon as we get a sunny day! The lighting is awful in my space, and without sun coming through the tiny window, the picture will be awful!


1) Annie/MrsAnnieS
2) Room
3) My biggest problem area is just keeping piles under control in general.
4) 2012 Scraproom makeover-before By MrsAnnieS

3) The entire area is HARD to keep organized!
4) Will Post pics soon.


1) Darla...Livin/laughinscrapper
2) Spare room (11'3" X 11'2") with closet (6'7" X 2'3".
3) It's full...daughter leaving in June, should I move something into her old room to make more room in scraproom. I tend toward cluttering up surfaces and then waste time with organizing it away except it doesn't last. Vicious cycle!! I end up in the living area to scrap instead of my creative room. Help me get off, or on, the wagon, please!
4)I'll link to my gallery in a moment! (I hope!!?)
Not Very Neat By Livin/laughinscrapper


1. Nicole / Nautolan
2. corner of livingroom
3. the fact that it is in the corner of the livingroom... everything else in the house ends up in my corner! I have 5 small children and a dh in a 3 bedroom apartment... and i work from home selling candles... so the kids stuff ends up on my table, dh's shoes end up under my table and my PartyLite stuff is everywhere. Plus I have a serious lack of PROPER storage.
4. http://www.scrapbook.com/myplace/index.php?mod=gallerie...


1. Sally/Lookin4newideas
2. The walk-through room I call my office
3. Keeping organized, especially if I'm working on several projects at a time.
4.http://www.scrapbook.com/gallery/image/photo/3 502635.html


1) Name/user name -- My name is Eileen and I go by NCYANKEE
2) Type of scraping area (closet, corner, room etc.) -- I'm really lucky. I have the bonus room over our garage. It's a large space. Was a play room - but since no one was using it I threw the children out!
3) Your biggest problem area that is hard to keep organized. --- too much stuff and no home for it.
4) The link to your new album to keep your pics in or post in the one from last year... if you are returning, your choice. Please create a new album in your gallery to upload all of the before and after pics, ingenious ideas and problem area pic.
http://www.scrapbook.com/myplace/index.php?mod=gallerie...



1) Name: Megan/user name: Megan Ann
2) Type of scraping area: scrap room (second bedroom in my apt.) I don't know the measurements & there is too much stuff in my room to be able to measure the space!
3) Your biggest problem area that is hard to keep organized: EVERYTHING!!! except about a 20"x20" space on my scrap table where I work that is usually cleared off and I am organized around it.
4) Scraproom Makeover Album


1.) Monique (RubyMillerand on SB)
2.) Currently have a corner space and small closet
3.) I'm having a really big problem w/ organizing, most of my stuff is in storage and I'd like to learn to organize what I already have here so when I move the rest down again, I'll be able to put it way w/ no problems.
4.) pics will be posted soon.


1. rhonda
2. my bedroom
3. everything. all of the plastic containers are filled with things. nothing is organized . it is everywhere.
4. http://www.scrapbook.com/myplace/index.php?mod=gallerie...


My name is Paula/Faithscrapper
I have a room, will find out the dimensions
My biggest obstacles are: my ds is sleeping in there on the fouton and my desk gets piled up.
Will post pics this week!


1) Name/user name - Jenny/Justowen
2) Type of scraping area (closet, corner, room etc.) - I have a room, dd does have one corner for her own scrapping space. The room has a sliding door to the patio on one wall, french doors on another wall, and a doorway on a third wall, so only one full wall.
3) Your biggest problem area that is hard to keep organized. - Hmmmm...the entire room? I really need to get a handle on storing completed pages and need to get much better about putting away new products as I buy them. I think new stuff into the room is my hardest thing to handle...I just don't deal with them and they end up piled around the room. I need to better organize my punch/cricut/slice space and I need to make a real space for my mists. I also have never made the curtain table for the front of my "desk" and the curtains for the sliding doors..even though I have the fabric for it and I never finished decorating the room.
4) The link to your new album to keep your pics in or post in the one from last year... if you are returning, your choice. Please create a new album in your gallery to upload all of the before and after pics, ingenious ideas and problem area pic.
Hopefully this is the link to my album for this challenge: http://www.scrapbook.com/myplace/index.php?mod=gallerie...
Here is my "before" pic:
The very messy scraproom January 29, 2012 By Justowen


1) Crystal/Zippadedoodas
2) closet, but now part of room enclosed by shelving
3) school stuff and photos
4) http://www.scrapbook.com/myplace/index.php?mod=gallerie...


I'm KDinsmore (Katie)
I have my own room (hubby doesn't have one for his hobby!)
My goodies are outgrowing their space, projects take over places, I want to find more ways to be innovative with my space, and I don't always pick up after myself!
I have a gallery of photos from last year, it's "Scraproom", or http://www.scrapbook.com/myplace/index.php?mod=gallerie... [color]

Anna - we are glad to have you! When I post a challenge I try to offer multiple ideas of how to organize one thing. This allows you to pick what you think will work best for you. Hope you can pin that down.

ATTN: Ok... so I am going to try to do my best these first few days of this challenge... but I am going to be out of town at... CHA!!!!! I am so excited! I get back late on the first... So I am going to post the pre-challenges encase you want to get started on something. I am supper busy getting ready for my last minute displays and projects so I am going to be copying and pasting these pre-challenges and probably the first one too. Then I am jumping in head first on Feb. Second!

I am going to get to know you all a little bit better, figure out what your wants and your needs are for the space. Before we start diving into our scrapbooking mess I would like you to take some time thinking of how you want your scraparea to look and feel.

Take a moment and look through the scraprooms pics on this site or google Scraproom images. See if there is something that resembles your area, ie. corner, desk, room... etc. Also look at the decor and colors. Can you find photos with the color/decor style and space challenges? Save these photos to your computer for your inspiration and we might be doing something with them later.

Pre-Challenge Challenge #1: This week I challenge you to find pictures that work for each of the fallowing.

1) Colors - What colors would you like to incorporate into your space. Even if you cant paint this is important for alteration projects, if you want to paint... now is the time to do so before we start the organization process Feb 1st.

2) Decor Style - What type of decor style (vintage, retro, girlie, contemporary) will you be looking to achieve. WE all create beautiful things when we scrapbook why not make it a beautiful space that will inspire us?

3) Space size
- Find a photo that shows the value of the space you have... for example if you are working with a closet... find a photo that has great organizational solutions for that type of space.

4)**** DON'T FORGET **** Before you get to excited to start this cleaning project... take some good/honest before pictures and post them in your album on here so we can see them compared to the afters!

Any questions? I would suggest if you do save them and share the photos you give the rightful owner props in your photo title or description with the link to the original site.

I know most of us have this problem so I am putting this out there now. And because some of you have the first challenge already done from previous years. If you don't do anything until our first real photo challenge that's ok too... this is just an option.

Pre-Challenge #2 - Lets get a jump start on this one... DON'T freak out on me yet...we will be working on this a bit each week.

PHOTOS - I know... well I am going to tell you this, right now I just want you to make a plan how YOU want organize these. Think of one of these organizational styles... keep in mind how you scrapbook... chronologically or not.

Sort them by person, event, by how you want to organize your albums, by color or dates. Maybe a combination of the them... really you just have to decide how to do it so you can access them quickly. Remember, the goal is to organize them so it saves you time in the end. Write it down in a binder, in paint on your wall or get a tattoo if you have to, to remember! Just figure it out and and start looking for the best storage systems and boxes to work with your system.



Really ambitious this weekend? Get that great jump start on those Digi photos. Organize and Backup all of them!

We WILL be going over this more about what to store them in, where to store them and why, later after the challenge begins... right now lets just make a plan.

Oh and as for pre-challenges I am pretty set, last year's challenge got me in a good habit with my photos and my room is pretty much good.

I want to follow, too! Sorry for falling out last year. Mt bil took a turn for the worse and passed away. We were the support system for his girls. I watched those girls every summer as they grew up.

Got a problem with all the goodies I have from swaps. Need different storage solution for stamps and punches. They have outgrown my last solution.

If you dare to share... show us a photo of your room as it is tonight. This will let us compare the differences of before and after.


The Pre-Challenge is your inspiration... could be a photo of a room or even a fabric for a color scheme. What ever inspires you to get this done and make it the way you want.

Here's the album with my space:

I know in my gut that it has such great potential but it is sooo very far from being there!

Pre Challenge #1

1. Becaue the furniture in the space is cranberry with accents of tan (in the throw pillows and window "treatment" (and I use that term very lightly!), I think I'd like to keep that color going. I've chosen white Jet max cubes to brighten the space up (but in hindsight I wish I had gone with the wood tone ones), and all my boxes are black, so I'd like those three clors to be the main colors -- cranberry, white and black

2. I don't know what style I'm going for. Probably a mix of traditional and vintage ????

3. Size is one wall and spurts of other walls in a 12 x 10 room. It's just a matter of being able to organize it so it all blends.

4. My pictures are in my album here: http://www.scrapbook.com/myplace/index.php?mod=gallerie...

Pre Challenge #2

I scrap chronologically, so that's how I sort my pictures. I can honestly say that they are in a box chronologically, but somewhere along the road, I started to pile things up that I thought I would be getting to soon so I have some memorabilia clipped to pictures and paper -- and then it's stuffed in a drawer!

Hello, just found this challenge and would love to join! I don't have a fancy scrap room, but I do have a room dedicated to my crafting and paying bills!

Info:

1. Sally/Lookin4newideas
2. The walk-through room I call my office
3. Keeping organized, especially if I'm working on several projects at a time.
4.http://www.scrapbook.com/gallery/image/photo/3 502635.html

It's a dark picture.. I have been putting everything into gallon and 2 gallon bags. It's easier for me to see what's what. I've also been separating theme stuff and getting that put away. Like Halloween is put away, Christmas is just about put away, I'm gathering all my winter/snow stuff and now I'm pulling out Valentine's day plus whatever else I'm working on. I NEED THIS CHALLENGE!!!

Pre Challenge #1


1) Colors....I think I would like my main colors to be lavendar, black and white. Purple is my fav color, and lavendar soothes me. My desk is black, and I love how those two colors look together. Accents of crisp clean white I think would look great. Now, since I don't have any of these colors in my room currently (besides my black desk and white, EMPTY walls, I have quite the challenge ahead of me!)

2) Decor Style - I think modern style would work best for me. I love crisp, clean, uncluttered (SO not what I have now )

3) Space size - My room is 13'9" by 7'5".

4) Taking pics tonight of my room....it will take courage to post them because of how trashed it is right now! Also, inspirational pics will be here .

Pre Challenge #2

I scrap by person. Each of my children has their own album. There's also a sisters album, a brothers album, and an album that features layouts that include all 4 kids. Another album has pics of me and my dh. The pics I do have are in a photo box divided by those categories. They are not in order by date however; for example, under Tristan's tab, there might be a pic of him at age 3, followed by one at 8, followed by one at 5. I would like the pic under each tab to be in order by date, oldest to newest, because each album goes like that of course. And my digital pics.....whew! There are hundreds, if not over a thousand, and they are in no order at all!

Sally - Welcome!!! I am glad you found us!
We will not be focusing on the fancy colors of the room, as of now we are talking about it for you to keep it back in the back of your mind as you choose labels for your organization or if you do any of the altering challenge we may have to decorate your space... but the majority of this challenge is simply to get organized in a way that will work for you. I think you have come to the right place!

Ok...well I might not get a pic tonight...but you will laugh...because I said I cleaned it up...and then I've been playing and trying to declutter...but it isn't working too well! LOL!

I love the color right now a light aqua, but would like to add a little more pink and more shabby chic to it.

Will try to post pics tomorrow or later!

pre-challenge 1-

scraproom makeover 2012-Room Makeover Insperation colors By Scrappin Kitty

I want to try and de-clutter, but keep everything fairly visible so I don't forget to use my stash, or forget I have something when shopping and get doubles of stuff. (Done that more than once )

pre-challenge 2- I have my photo boxes separated by person but it's not really organized, I have all of my digital separated by month, which is also a pain on finding stuff, so need to get all of my photos scanned (and backed up since they are not yet) and figure out a better method than just flipping through a mill pics to find what I'm looking for.

Hi ya Grace!!!! I had soooo much fun with this last year, though I joined in late & never accomplished much! I am FOR SURE going to try again! I still reference my binder from last year when I need an organization solution! I can't wait to see what this year brings!

1) Name: Megan/user name: Megan Ann
2) Type of scraping area: scrap room (second bedroom in my apt.) I don't know the measurements & there is too much stuff in my room to be able to measure the space!
3) Your biggest problem area that is hard to keep organized: EVERYTHING!!! except about a 20"x20" space on my scrap table where I work that is usually cleared off and I am organized around it.
4) Scraproom Makeover Album

Yes it does Darla. We are all about repurposing around here. I have been on a HUGE repurpose kick with my art and crafts. Books mostly... I am loving all the things you can do with an old book destined for the recycle bin.

Darla - that's an awesome inspiration room. I can only dream . . . I too have limited, if any, funds to play with in my space -- that's why it's such a hodge podge. I know deep down that it has potential -- even if I can just put some color up on the wall until we get around to refinishing the basement! (Of course, with one dd in nursing school, and the other only two years away from college, that won't be any time soon!

I watch HGTV alot and get loads of great ideas and I know it can be done on the cheap. I just have to put my thinking cap on . . .

Jo,
I got them at Babies R Us for my daughters nursery. Right now they have my cow collection. I guess that is what happens when you transplant a girl from NH, VT and Upstate NY to California. Now that the room is off of the kitchen I want to make it look a little more grown up.

Val, I used to watch this show on HGTV called "Mission Organization" and I loved it. One thing I took from that show is that it's all baby steps and looking at a room as a whole can be daunting, but if you start in one corner and work your way around the room it's not too bad. They used to tackle a spot and deal with the things in that spot instantly. Every item went into a bin marked either "keep" "donate" or "trash". At the end, the "keep" items got sorted and organzed. It was amazing what they accomplished on that show! I just wish it was still on. Actually, they did an episode on a scrap room. It was cool. I use that method around my house -- especially when I'm cleaning the kitchen.

Good luck!

Megan Anne - Glad you don't have to pay for it. Hope you get it back soon.

Val - My room looks like that now even though I have done this challenge for the last 3 years. But I am hopeless! So I do a major clean up once a year and a purge too. I added a small crafting business this year and started collecting things I would never have had in my room (like boxes of old books) now it's overflowing. I need to purge! LOL!

Ladies - I love HGTV!

PRE-CHALLENGE Challenge #3 - Lets keep this organized! It is important when you are going to organize so many things like we have in our scraproom to keep your ideas and thoughts organized. This week's pre-challenge is to make a binder, inspirations board, computer file of idea photos and articles. If needed Print your inspiration photos, add your color swatches, floor plans or any other things, some loose leaf paper to keep notes on and put them into the binder. If you want to have some scrappbooking fun (like we all do) alter the binder, inspiration board and make it be a representation of your vision for your room/space. Most of all Have FUN!!!!

Pre-Challenge #4 - Muster that Clutter!

Gather it up and sort your stuff, your piles around your space, that corner shelf of chaos and that junk drawer. You know all those things that are not put away or don't have a home. We need to sort it into six major categories. You can sort them into labeled boxes or each category into each corner of the room. This is just temporary for a few weeks but it will make the Scraproom Makeover challenge easier.

organize your supplies By Hanging By A Moment

Categories:

#1: THE DESK - I want all of the things you want within arms reach of your desktop in this pile/box or even right there on your desk. Things that you use on almost every project, inks stamps and your tools etc.

#2: THE PAPERS - Cardstock, patterned papers, scraps, die cuts... etc.

#3: EMBELLISHMENTS - Flowers, ribbons, brads, eyelets, stickers, bling etc.

#4: IMAGES/ EXTRAS
- Photos, memorabilia, bags & totes, magazines & books

Then I also would like you to have the fallowing set up when you are sorting:

#5: A box to donate or giveaway to a friend or a blog or even a craft room at a hospital.

#6: A trash box or bag

This is a new one and we sorta did it during the challenge last year... thought it would be a good idea to get it together before hand if you all have time to do it.

While you are sorting... make a list of the type of things that you NEED to find homes for. Share that list to me in a PM if you want and I will make sure we cover your problem areas. I promise you we will get to it even if we have to extend a week I will do it.

Pre-Challenge Challenge #1:
1) Colors - I don't plan on changing up the colors because I am not into painting the walls. I do, however, want to take out the darker bookshelves and bring in more white since the room is already very dark as it is.

2) Decor Style - I'm going to keep my style the same... kind of classic pieces with a modern twist. I like the furniture I have, as far as my table and repurposed buffet, both of which have a more classic, formal look, with the modular cubes alone the other wall for a clean, organized look.

3) Space size - I'm in a combination dining room/scrap space. The room is about 12'x9' and most of it is housing scrap stuff!

4)I've actually been pretty good at keeping my room clean and organized! You can check out the after pictures in my album... I haven't really moved much around, so it's all good. I will probably get around to before photos at some point, though.

Pre-Challenge #2 -
PHOTOS - I don't print my photos anymore unless I am scrapping them, so most of my storage has become digital. I have a couple of albums that hold the remnants of my printed photos that I haven't scrapped yet, and they're not really sorted. Since I don't have that many, it doesn't take me long to find what I'm looking for.

My digital photos are always my problem. I do NOT like sorting by person. I usually keep them sorted by date that they were loaded to my computer. I have so many years worth of digital files that I don't know if I want to go back and change my sorting method anytime soon! It could take me the whole month, even with my bulk renaming utility and everything!

Pre-Challenge #4 - Muster that Clutter!

Most of my stuff has stayed pretty organized since last year's challenge. I do, however, need to go through my bookcases and figure out what cubes I need to buy in order to store the same (or more) stuff.

Also, if anyone has any good ideas for page storage, in or outside of an album, I would love to see! I have Google searched a couple of times and come up with nothing outside of bookshelves. I'd love to move my albums into another room where the kids have access to them, but buying albums is also pricier, even when you get them 1/2 off, so the idea of storing them in page protectors in another manner is something I'm interested in.

Oh. I also need to get my albums sorted and labeled. That is one of my big TO DO's this year.

Pre-Challenge #2 Photos

Pre-digi ones are in photo boxes according to dates. I'd like to get coordinating boxes in the same patterns (black & white?). They are currently in the top of my scraproom closet. Would prefer a bookcase for them.

The digital ones on my computer are mostly organized by date, altho some are by events and person. I'm afraid to mess with that! Not sure how to back up all of them?! Scary if pc goes down!! Definitely need to figure it out!

So I went to ARchivers today and we were all talking about this challenge -- I want to join in. (Please).


1) Name/user name -- My name is Eileen and I go by NCYANKEE

2) Type of scraping area (closet, corner, room etc.) -- I'm really lucky. I have the bonus room over our garage. It's a large space. Was a play room - but since no one was using it I threw the children out!

3) Your biggest problem area that is hard to keep organized. --- too much stuff and no home for it.

4) The link to your new album to keep your pics in or post in the one from last year... if you are returning, your choice. Please create a new album in your gallery to upload all of the before and after pics, ingenious ideas and problem area pic.

http://www.scrapbook.com/myplace/index.php?mod=gallerie...

It's empty right now.

I will get started on the prechallenge challenges!!

Pre-challenge #1: I prefer white or pale pink. The room is dark and I don't want to be stuck with a color I won't like. I had some paint I never used from 2 years ago. I was all excited to get a jump start on painting while I cleaned...the paint was dried up.

Pre-challenge #2: My pictures are either in old albums or in a plastic bin. I had separated them by sibling member/family/event/my daughter. Then I put them into gallon baggies. I do a lot of challenges, and when I have a pic in mind, I know which bag to go to, to find it. I have some pictures from about 16-18 years ago in a couple of photo boxes. I had separated them into the bags last National Scrapbook Day. (that was one of the week long challenges)

My digitals are on my hard drive and I need to back them up. I don't know who to organize them on Windows 7 other than by the date they get loaded. I bought a program last year called Photo Explosion, but I it's got too much stuff on it and I don't understand half of it, so my mind shuts down.

Pre-challenge #3. I have 2 14x14 cork board I had bought real cheap and never put up on my walls. I'll use that. I need to see things, if I put in a binder, I'll forget it's there.

Pre-challenge #4 - it was my goal to get all my scrappy stuff organized this month. I'm not working and have limited funds and I have a terrible addiction to buying scrapbook stuff. I'm seeing a mental health professional next week for the first time to get help. I keep buying stuff "for swaps". It wasn't until I started getting organized that I realized how much stuff I have bought in the past 6 months.

1 - I have two deskt top craft caddies I'll be using.
2 - I have my papers separated by color, paper packs on top. I have a very large envelope next to my desk I put scraps of card stock in. Then I have a med size plastic bin I put the rest of the scrap paper. When it gets full, I pull out the stuff that I like the most and give away the rest of it on Freecyle.
3 - I recently separated into plastic containers, my buttons, brads, bling, stickers and misc embellies. Then I have all my swap stuff in gallon bags and putting them away in a closet by season.
5 - I have a box to put extra swap stuff in and will be mailing to Pebblesh here on sb.com. She has a donation forum going found here: http://www.scrapbook.com/forums/showtopic.php?tid/15634...
6 - my favorite Christmas present this year was one of those metal trash cans with the foot petal to open it. Then inside is a plastic bucket with handle to empty out into the trash bin. I fill it up twice a week.

Thank you, Grace, for the flash drive idea!! Not sure how to use it but have a dsil who can help!!

Eileen: I wish there was an Archiver's near me!!
Sally: sorry your paint dried out!! I have my digi pics organized in Picasa...it's a free download and understandable (mostly). You are doing great with a twice weekly trash dump and freecycle and donating stuff here...before you know it you'll have it under control! I've never done swaps...i must be missing something...lol!

Is ROYGBIV...red, orange, yellow, green, blue, ??, violet? is that the color chart pattern to follow for ordering colors in a row?

working on Pre-challenge #4 sorting into boxes.

Is ROYGBIV...red, orange, yellow, green, blue, ??, violet? is that the color chart pattern to follow for ordering colors in a row?



ROYGBIV = red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet

I got a wild hair up my butt and started working on sorting albums last night. 3 down, 4 more to go. Apparently at one point in my scrapping I didn't think it was important to write the date on my pages, so a couple of times I was scratching my head trying to compare pictures so that I could guesstimate the age.

Reminder to everyone: Make sure you date your pages somewhere so that if you eventually want to sort them chronologically, you will be able to! lol

This is a fabulous thread! I am almost done organizing my room, but would like to participate anyway. Thank you Grace!
btw, love your angel wings! I tried to like the pic, but since we aren't friends on fb I couldn't. Best wishes at CHA!

Here are some quick snap shots... I pulled these out of the box to snap these so the ribbons hanging down were all bunched up (second photo) in the feathers. It doesn't do this, this much if you are just using it.





It is boxed up and on it's way to CHA! YIKES!!!

Have fun at CHA! Hi everyone. Is it too late to join?

1.) Monique (RubyMillerand on SB)

2.) Currently have a corner space and small closet

3.) I'm having a really big problem w/ organizing, most of my stuff is in storage and I'd like to learn to organize what I already have here so when I move the rest down again, I'll be able to put it way w/ no problems.

4.) pics will be posted soon.

morning -- I need a challenge to organize my time! LOL. Like that will ever happen.

I am hoping to work on pre challenges tomorrow. I did take pics the other day just haven't uploaded them (refer to first sentence).

Good morning ladies. Safe travels Grace and have loads of fun. I'm looking forward to hearing about it all.

I just wanted to update you -- I finally replaced the rocking chair I was sitting on at my scrap desk with a real desk chair! I took it out of dd1's room since she's away at college. I can't even begin to tell you what a surge of energy that little move gave me!! LOL

Oh, and is it terrible that I'm happy that my couch broke?? DH and I just noticed that the back of the long couch in my space has split and you can't lean back on it (or at least you shouldn't lean up against it). . . so, out it goes! I'll only have the loveseat now, but that will open things up so much. I can't wait for trash day to take the broken one out to the curb!!

Have a great weekend!

jci and will get started on the newest pre-challenges tomorrow.

thank you ladies for all the encouragement! instead of being overwhelmed i'm starting to get excited about getting my room back to its former glory, but better! Anna, 'Mission: Organization' sounds like a show that I would've loved!! HGTV is one of my famous channels. The keep, donate, trash boxes u suggested to use during my clean-up process....genius! It was like i literally saw a light bulb go on over my head! That is going to make things so much easier I cannot even begin to describe how much! Thank you, and again also to everyone who encouraged me!

Grace those are Beautiful!!!

Anna congrats on the chair and more space

Val sounds like you have a great plan. HGTV is awesome

almost done hanging all of the stuff back up on my newly painted walls, and sewed a valance for the room. Also got all of the stuff to make a stamp inventory. Can't wait till the first to officially get started and see everyone's great ideas!
