I am so glad you hosted this. You seem to really have this organizational stuff down pat! I get inspired just reading your lovely posts!

Now, off to work!

I like this week's challenge.

Do you think that one of you experienced peas can tell us "unexperienced" peas how to post pictures in simple instructions?
I would really appreciate it (and maybe someone else would too).

Looking forward to posting a picture of my chaos!!

Wookiemouse, your area would be a dream for me!

Thanks again!

Posted my pictures last week. Just go to my photos and it should all be there in it's ugly glory. It was rather cathartic and I was able to made some headway in my organizing efforts and wookiemouse would be proud as the label maker was brought out. The big things these next weeks will be moving stuff around like I want to.

Hi Stacy,
You have a beautiful Scraproom. I just read where you are struggling with storage for your kits. I have mine stored in the Crop in Style 12x12 file drawers. I use variations of the CIS cubes for my entire room. The drawers work great. I have 2 filled and they are filed by catagory so they're easy to pull. Hope you find something that works well for you.

I can handle the daydreaming about my dream space. I know what I would love to work in. I've already seen it. My reality is just getting in my way. Anyone have an inside line to the lottery?

Anyway I have a photo posted on my meager blog

I'll try to get one loaded in the gallery here. Ugh

ok, i just posted my room in my gallery...hmm...it looks so messy! Definitely not loving all the plastic boxes on the shelf. i'd like to get rid of all the stuff on the shelves that i don't use all the time. i'd also like to "pretty up" the whole room...maybe paint - just needs something!

So...streamline, organize, rethink the space!

Uh...you really really don't want to see a photo of my "so-called" space.

Thanks for hosting this organizing challenge...it will certainly keep me busy this summer. Hoping to see some progress- IF - I can commit to the challenge. Here's hoping (DH is praying hard for this) that I can get to work & get it done. It's been six years this summer since I started "organizing". LOL

Raising hand: ME! I'm looking at a major overhaul, not a quick fix. This challenge that Stacy's put together is perfect!

I posted on your blog Stacy! I haven't posted pics that much on websites, blogs, etc, but will get it figured out! I have not made a layout because my space is so messy there isn't even any space on the desk itself to do anything! I have all these ideas on projects, mini albums, layouts, but never really get to very many of them because of my mess,arrrgh! I really, really have been wanting to start a little mini album of one month in my life and I wanted to start it yesterday. I thought about it...planned on how I wanted to get started. And yet here I sit...nothing has happened yet. Come home from work and I wanted to work outside in the flower garden tonight...just not enough hours in the day sometimes! Actually, I'm feeling a bit under the weather with some kind of viurs, ugh...throat is killing me, so hopefully tomorrow I will feel better and get a little something started!

Working hard on this weeks task. It has helped me just by writing "stuff" down. I will try to post my pictures by Friday!

Where are all the other photos? Come on don't be shy. We're all here for the same reason, our rooms are taking over and we want to take the space back.

I've looked at the pictures posted so far. I wish I had a complete room of my own, then I could just fill it with clutter. LOL

I wanted to say Big Thank-you for posting this challenge. I have not scrapped one page in over a year and after reading week 1 I did a two page LO. I had my list of what is not working and now I am dreaming about what will work.

I do not have a room.....I have a space in my living room and of couse overflow in the dinning room and bedroom. Some of it works for me and some does not. Off to see the pictures now.

Hanging head in shame... Here are my scraproom photos as promised:
Scrap Room Photos



The only way I forced myself to post these pictures was to know that I will have an amazing organized room when I finish with this challenge.

I finally posted photos of my depressing, cluttered and uninspiring scrap room! But, really, don't check it out...I'm so ashamed! I never was good at housekeeping! Thank goodness for this challenge!!

I have seen the post for this challenge and would like to join. I tried to comment on the blog, but it asks for information from me that I don't understand.

How can I join this challenge? Will it send 'notification's when new challenges are issued?

Please help the 'blog challenged'.

Thanks,
Jo
PS WookieMouse - my folks live in New Braunfels also. Your craft studio is amazing. I'm on my way to purchase binders and baseball trading cards after viewing your room.

Four shelves (from Home Depot) have been mounted on the wall above my desk area in my scraproom. DH purchased a maple wall shelving unit that we put above my work station - it holds my MM paints, Prima, and other assorted flowers. I'll be adding more photos to my Scraproom Gallery as soon as I complete my re-arranging and take the photos.

I believe I have some "before" pics at Photobucket. I'll create a gallery for them and add the link here later.

I thought this was Week 3 of the challenge?

ETA: OK, here they are. Before Photos

Jo - all you have to do to follow the challenge is to check 2Peas every Monday. I will post a new area to work on every week. I posted Week 3 this past Monday - I will bump it up for you. Don't worry about commenting on the blog - as long as you can read it, you're good to go!
