HideAway - before & after a Tidy



Ok so I was taking pictures of the card bins
and had to be creative as my room around them
was a complete mess so I tackled it next.

It started out as fun,
but did not take long to become work !! LOL

Before ....
( did not take lots of pic, esp closet ... ha ha )




This is from the doorway, you can see the mess all
over my desk, filing cabinet & well every where .....



Taa Daa... everything has a place & is in it's place, .....almost.



From the doorway, you can see the top of desk & filing cabinet.




I have this bin of material out for a project I am going to do
& Garett's printer doesn't have a home yet .....
possibly his room?


Under the desk, I made new labels &
believe it or not I even cleaned out a bunch
of the drawers so that I could relabel them
with what they SHOULD be.


Under main portion of desk -
Taylor's craft bin is the blue one in the corner.
Should switch some of those around -
maybe next time . . .

My Making Memories shelf,
wanted this for awhile but it was $100.
I bought it over a year ago on
boxing day for 50% of + and
extra 25% so of course it was coming
home with me for $33 !!!

Bargain Shopper!





This is an other Making Memories Shelf,
Clearance for $10.00 ...... love it!
Took 2 drawers out to display a few things.



Got this at a local store Vintage Pixie -
I made my own spritz sprays -
Thank you Lynn for lending me
the ink :)
as well I have my stacks of embellishments.
Have had them for awhile & they work.


Top of filing cabinet, Love my red bin,
All the way from London, ON !!
Flower tubs, chipboard dumped into a
glass jar from dollar store ($2),
I decorated a coffee tin for my distressing tools,
Candle warmer & some plates that need to be
hung after the reno is done.

Loved them & got them for a great price,
so you know I bought them,
now they too need a home!!


My latest precious - COPIC SKETCH markers,
fun fun fun - need more colours for shading -
then I will need a new container ;(
this one was $7.99 - great find.

What I see from where I sit.



On top of the pantries across from where I sit,
this changes as I rearrange the decorations in the house.
This seams to be a great storage \ display area.



Fireplace to keep my toes warm.
Used to be in our room,
but now has a new home here,
love what it adds to the room.
& yes I have to hang the clock still.
Again want to wait for reno so I can hang
everything where I want it.

Attempting to keep hubby happy
by not putting a bunch of holes in his
new drywall...


The closet - going to build shelves here
someday - it sorta works for now.


The beautiful door hubby got me so I don't feel
in a dungeon -
draw back is baby can See me &
knows hoe to open door . . . . .

I enjoy the interruption for a few minutes
until he thinks the copic markers are for him . ;)

Beside the pantry / behind the door -
love this nook. These pictures were in my office
until I had maternity leave.

They seam so perfect there,
I have not taken them back to work.

Got the magazine rack
for $21.99 - has a small mark near the
bottom to get the discount
& well I like imperfect things so . . . .
it came home too . . . .

Hope you Like the little tour -
Come play with me soon,
can not guarantee that it will be neat if you
do but hey, you are always welcome.

Thank you to my Hubby
for holding down the fort
so I could get this down.






Organizing The Cards

Ok so I started to organize
some greeting cards today -
which led to the label maker coming &
out and making labels & making
the card organizers DONE!

It was such a great feeling -
instant gratification of
a completed job.

I don't have befor pictures but
I am sure you can imagine what they looked
like before labels &
a few cards tucked in the front awaiting filing.

Taa daa .........
