Organization is a pain

The crafting/creative/book space is now done. I'm putting up some last pictures to show you what has happened.

Things are up on the shelves now.

I found most of my containers at a kitchen store. I also added a small cork board on the bottom left of the first shelf for putting up notes.

This is how all the cd's look. Out of my way but easily accessible.

Now the tedious part. Going through all my stuff and keeping or throwing away. I found this crosstitch piece in a photo album. I was wondering where that went to.

I went through my plastic crafting drawers and now have an empty drawer for Rowan's stuff.

Here's a picture of organizing perfection. That pitcher looks just like decoration doesn't it? Well, it's not just decoration. It's holding greenery I use for other things. That's probably the lesson in all this. I try to make sure my decorative things can be used for storing other things.

And the things I store can look like a decorative element.


  1. I love, love, love your use of vertical space. It is often overlooked and so useful. I love the vase too! I use vases and wicker baskets for the same reason. I get them on clearance or at Goodwill. Well done:)

  2. Awesome job! When ya coming to my house?

  3. Did I mention I have a fear of dogs and you you have 5, Leni? I was also attacked by a bird once.
