A pretty productive day...put the bookshelf together, arranged the storage containers on it, and even moved it back into the play/craft room. I'm challenged on furniture arrangement, and I don't like the look of the bookshelf being off center against the wall, and then there's the plastic drawers next to the bookshelf that seems to be an eye sore. I am learning that organization is the key to my personal productivity. I haven't finished any scrapbook pages in a month because it is such a mess in that room.

"Before" Pictures

This is my workspace (and what is under my workspace). Here are my "before" pictures of the playroom/craft room. Any suggestions for furniture arrangement??!!

Cardboard boxes were housing stamps and extra 81/2 x 11 paper. (I was trying to be creatively inexpensive!)

Spring Cleaning

I'm inspired! my friend who is an educator, raises dogs, and works with horses, by my new found friend who is an author, by my students (especially the one who is currently ranked #2 in her class...she is brilliant, beautiful, and sweet!), and by my kindred spirit Paper Goddess at We Will Always Have Paris who inspired me to Spring Clean My Work Space.

This is what I wrote to Paper Goddess: I go! Just left all my favorite discount stores with storage baskets, bins, containers, and a book shelf that (kinda) looks like pottery barn, and I am ready to organize. I am going to take a picture and send to you, too. I cheated a little bit because I organized 12x12 paper and all those cheap frames I've been meaning to paint, but other than that, my room is a disaster. Literally, my shelves are cardboard boxes (you will see in the picture). Thank you for motivating me. I'm going in! If I don't comment again, I'm lost in the madness and please call my husband and let him know he needs to rescue me!
