Half Way There

I just couldn't wait to show you! I am halfway to my cleaning goal for this weekend. Yesterday, with Adeline's wonderful help, I cleaned and organized my craft closet. I forgot to take a "before" picture--which is probably for the best ... I really don't like to show my clutter.

So, I removed EVERYTHING from the closet and proceeded to weed out the garbage. The kitchen table, the island and the floor were filled with the contents of the closet. Unbelievable.

Can you believe all this garbage came from one closet?


Both Adeline and I were ruthless-- Adeline sorted through dried up paint and pens and tossed broken pencils and crayons....I cleaned, threw away "old unused stuff", organized, labeled and placed.


Taa Daa.....this is what the craft closet looks like now....


It feels SO good... I like to open the door and gaze.


I want to go create now. ... but first I must clean the pantry.

Beautiful!!! My craft supplies are covering the twin bed in the baby's room. I, too, decided to purge the junk, but I haven't quite gone through it yet. I wish I had a whole closet for it! Instead I'm putting projects into bags/boxes and throwing out anything that isn't already designated to a specific project. Wish me luck!

Molly, it is so wonderful to be able to find what I need. I want my whole house to be organized---I am taking a drawer/closet/room at a time...baby steps...

Groan... I'm so jealous! ;) But really, thanks for keepin' it real. You never see the work/junk behind all those perfect Martha Stewart craft rooms, do you?

Karen- is it the new year, new beginnings because I have been in the purge and organize mode as well. Its funny as I put away my Christmas decorations I want to move this to make room for that, and rearrange another shelf, and then I get a hammer and nails and (its tragic when I pick up a hammer and nails -a story for another day) I want to hang things, but the end result is always great and I do the same thing, I want to crack open the door and take another peek at . . .satisfaction!
