Working away ....

So for the last few days I have spent alot of time in my room 
I few small areas look clean ... but I have a long way to go ....

here is what I have done so far ...
( sorry took pics with phone and it is always hazy )

I started with my shelf.... and jars 
it seamed that most things on this shelf are behind me 
and not really used 
so I decided to shake them up 
  BEFORE







AFTER...
I emptied all of the fabric flowers into the drawer at top
as I don't use them much and using up all the jars seamed silly 

Then I needed to fill the jars with all my little treasures that
don't get used.
I have always like Queen & Co
all this little containers ans some don't stay closed 
so time to get them out of the drawer ...
they are right beside me but there is always something in front of the drawer
so into a jar they went

i have a bunch of brads and goodies directly behind me in this 
cute little vintage caddy that don't get used = into a jar


here are some of the finished jars
Queen & co flowers, metal alphas 7 large brads

shaped buttons, shaped eyelets, mini brads, shaped brads
originally I wanted them all sorted for ease, 
but if I am not using them sorted, 
they might as well together

felt flowers, designer brads

metal embellishments, charms, plastic alphas, bronze embellishments

 a cleaned up sorted bottom shelf 

 still need to add detail to open space 



 next stop my ribbon drawer
i took all of the ribbons off of my shelf & 
added then to the ribbon drawer.
I have a great idea for the ribbon dowel below now that the ribbon is off 
all clean - for how long though ... lol

I even sorted and cleaned up my travel ribbon bin
that is have packed in my travel bag ...


 I reused the tubes I emptied into the jars for my travel bag

lastly I took a big ding out of my stamps - 
they were a messy few drawers
that I couldn't close ....

 I took a few off the blocks 
now I need to find cling vinyl for them
Any ideas?

I cut up baseball card sheets to hold
all the small stamps
different coloured card stock behind the stamps
lets me know what these they are.
I will show more pictures of these later
  and lastly I put a few I want to use soon and a few favorites in a 
small drawer on my desk top so I actually use them 
 Well I better get back at it if I want to be done by next week .
i even started putting together a prize 
... will blog that tomorrow as this one is so long ..

have a creative day & 
enjoy the walking dead tonight

Now That's a Mess!

well here is the Mess...
tee hee

this is from the door 
I used the panoramic function on my phone


 This is what is front and center on my desk - panoramic  

this is beside and behind mt desk - panoramic 

Front and center on desk

To my right - the other side of desk

Behind me

The floor
 So this is the space I need to clean up ...
Hopefully sooner than later.

 Today's task was organizing the cricut cartridges,
they were in a rolly cart under my desk


Now they are - all nice and contained in one photo box for now 
that is the only thing that they fit in well.



Let's see what else I can get done tonight .....
stay tuned for more before and afters

Clean Up .... hmmmmm

I have seen a few spaces recently that 
have encouraged me to clean up my space

Here in Northern Ontario 
we are experiencing another snow storm
which has closed all schools 
*rare - they usually only cancel buses
Secretly happy as I wanted to watch CANADA MEN'S HOCKEY 
with the kids at noon tee hee
then get my room tidy

anyway - .....
I LOVE Nicole's new storage and design 
You have to check out her 5 blog about it 
there are 5 seperate post make sure you see them all 



Then my friend Tracy has the coolest carts that she is 
cleaning up and reorganizing 
check that out here: tracystreasures-tracy


was thinking of cleaning up and taking new pictures-
How many of you would like to share your space 
or organizational things that work for you ....

I was thinking I could turn it into a giveaway?

If there is interest - I would like to 
give all about a week 
post to your blog you space 
clean - messy or both 
or organizational items and why they work for you 
and I will head to Micheal's and find a prize 
or a git card for an online store
(what is your preference?)

once you have the post ready i can link them all 
here and we can all check them out - what are your thoughts?

Here are some photos I have saved:
