Sure I could make changes to alot of areas in my room... but today my letter stickers are driving me NUTS!! Usually they are neat and tidy but for some reason it looks like my dog has been doing the clean up around here... WHAT A MESS!

Reorganizing letter stickers just moved to the top of my to-do list today!

Yes. My room. Organizing letter stickers sucks, because they are off sizes and never fit anywhere. Do you have a Crop in Style sticker binder? That really helps. I've been contemplating organizing them by theme, too. I have some M's cubes that are organized by theme. For instance, Holidays, Weddings, Birthday. My other cubes are organized by supplies: Ribbon, chipboard letters and words, Coluzzles(I still use and love them).

My room is much cleaner, but I've been whining for a couple years that it needs to look pretty. I finally had a great idea for decorating it and now I can't find the accessories that would be needed. So, I'm back to square one. I don't know why I'm so stuck here, but it's time to get unstuck and love the room.

My Silhouette and glitter area is a mess because of a project that I just completed. I will have to clean that up before I can begin anything else.

Hahaha, my whole room! I started sorting through paper my DD had, went from that to fabric and then to Christmas albums.

I did get the paper sorted & the Christmas albums sorted out, also. But my fabric is still strewn all over the floor along with various other "stuff". I need to get my butt back up there, yet here I sit...

I have about 25 letter sticker packs, and no vowels. Vanna never responds, so I go out and buy another packet of letters. The letter sticker makers are evil. I should buy stock in American Craft.

My desk!

  • I got some new ink; had to try it out.
  • Got some new stamps; had to try them out (foolishly didn't try the new ink and new stamps together).
  • Then decided to try taking the rubber off a wood mount stamp to see if it would be practical for all of my wood mount stamps.
  • Started making a card.
  • Started trying to finish the front cover of a mini album--it's the last page.
  • Painted some letters.


It usually doesn't get this bad. I was having a weird scrappy night.

The right side of my desk is a dumping ground for anything and there a pretty darn tall pile of stuff that I should probably put away but really don't feel like it.

They really should make vowel packs. It would be the right thing to do.

My COUNTERS!!!! Thank you Jo Anns!!!!

I am in the process of converting my albums to WRMK so I took advantage of the Jo Anns sale and ordered 18 binders. They came UNPADDED in a box that was falling apart, and 6 of them are moderately to completely destroyed. I sent an email to Jo Anns last week and still haven't heard back. In the meantime, these 6 binders are taking up a huge chunk of counter space and are a constant reminder of a project on hold. Grrr!

I'm feeling claustrophobic. Like there is stuff everywhere. I need a new shelf for my printer and my kids keep putting things on my desk.

One spot! No usually my whole house could drive me nuts if I let it. My tidiness skills are not very good, and my husband's a pack rat. I might get into a scraproom organizing mode before long, but not today.

Yes! My album storage! Most are in a cabinet in the living room, completed albums that is. I scrap in any order, but store most LO's chronologically.

So I have several "partial" albums, plus some empty albums with no where to go in my newly downsized scrapbook room.

Some are sitting on the floor and I have to step over them daily. That is if I remember they are there and don't trip over them

Yes, the hallway outside of my scrap room. I have friends over on Friday nights to scrap. We use the dining room and my scrap room is upstairs. By the time Friday is gone, my dining room is a mess. Every time I go up the steps, I carry stuff with me and stack it in the hallway. Then, it takes me the whole week to get it put away for Friday night again!

For me it's my punches! They are all in a drawer and it's too full!!! I cannot find what I am looking for, and it's driving me crazy! I really need to find a better storage solution for them...

A bit of everything - I went to a crop last night, so I've got lots of stuff still to unpack. Lots of DS's toys and art supplies floating around in there too.

Wookiemouse - I know what you mean about J's. I've started just ordering 2-3 albums at a time, because they seem less likely to be damaged that way. If they didn't have such good sales, I wouldn't bother! I hope you get it resolved - I had good service with returning a few damaged ones last year.

the 1' area between my plastic draws thing on wheels and my little scrap island. Apparently it has turned into a dumping pile for everyone using my crafty things and then leaving them there. So annoyed, cleaned it up and found papers curled over...grrr. I was already annoyed as I missed entering the cha challenges.

Thanks Don, but the only door I have is a pocket door..so I cannot hang anything on it.
I was thinking of the taller Alex -9 drawer from Ikea, does anyone have it and use it for their punches?

Yes the hole my amusement park stickers fell into! (along with the set of hippy embellies I cant find). I spent/wasted 2 hours going through my whole stash looking for these things and they have obviously gone the way of my missing socks!!
