Rumor has it...

I cleaned my craft room. I'm hoping to have found the 'almost perfect' system for me to keep the space neat and tidy.
This is before....I'm a "Piler", if there's a clean surface, I cover it.
I' m a "Keeper", the bottles are for recycling, but I keep all kinds of things that I think I might use later. I hardly ever use them.
I'm a "Collector". I like stamps in sets, I like paper that comes in kits, full lines, and co-ordinates.

I'm not a "Hoarder". But I'm darn close.
This is between "before" and "after".


This is after....the new bookshelves, painted with way too many cans of spray paint, lesson learned. The drawers on wheels are cleaned off, one holds fabric and that isn't working but I haven't found the right storage yet.

Notice the recycling bin is full. I think I did a pretty good job of letting go of things I know I won't use. 
 The "to be sorted" box is small, and full. I figured if it's small, I can't put that much into it, and then I have to sort it before I can put more in. So far, I haven't sorted it. 



The other end of the room, I still want to clean up the shelf of albums. And the corner on the right. But so far, I'm pretty happy with it. I don't want to mess it up. 


It's winter again, or still, depends on who you ask. I think winter lasts till mid-March, but then again, I don't really pay attention. I just wish we'd go from this to green dry grass. 

This guy loves the snow. I haven't taken many pictures outside this winter. And when I do, what do I do, I cut his feet off, they are in the snow, but still....

He humored me with a few throws of the frisbee. He can stick it in the snow and then flip snow at us. I'm hoping it's just a fluke and not a new trick.


 These two didn't know who Skellator was, or He-Man, or 4 Non-Blonds, but they found this ridiculous video and sing and laugh like maniacs when it's on.  What's Going On, what it here, but be warned, it's ridiculous.  I've discovered after the Grammys that I like Adele, Bruno Mars, and Gotye. 

 $2 Valentine's chocolates!  I don't even like Ferrero Rocher, but Kerry does. One perk of working is finding out the deals beforehand. 
 This one's brother took her to see Woman in Black with Daniel Radcliffe. We knew that one or both of them would have a few sleepless nights because of it. She figures she slept a total of half an hour. Poor kid. They liked it, said it was good, had a story line. I am not going to watch it. Ever.


We have a busy year in the making....2 weddings in the family, 1 friend wedding, the anime convention, my 40th (still trying to decide what we are doing), mom and dad's 40th anniversary, and I'm sure much more that I have forgotten about. I can't wait for better weather!

Love the newly organized scrap room. Mine is coming along very slowly. Moving from one room into another forces me to reorganize, declutter and start fresh. Its amazing how clean it looks when 2/3rds of it is packed away LOL
