"Decrapification" of the scrapbook room!!

Well hello again! It has been the craziest summer, and it shows on my blog!! My goal is to post at least 2 days a week... so we shall see how that goes.....


Ok, now onto business. I have this amazing scrapbook room that Mr.Wonderful built me last year, and over the summer it was a little abused. Ok, let's get real... it was REALLY abused!!

Here is what it looked like last year.






Not too bad, just WAAAYYY too clutter for this OCD crafter!

Ok, so that looks pretty good compared to what you are about to see. I am ashamed to show you this, but in all honesty the only reason it looks the way it does is because I have 3 small children, and this was the only place i could "park" stuff until i put it away. HAHAHA it only took 3 months to put it away!








OK, it's over, I showed you my dirty secret. I have problems, yes I have figured this out. While my Bestie Heather was over to help me clean this room out, we discovered that Ihave about 3 of everything that I dont even need!!



So we spent one night cleaning most of the stuff you see in these pictures out, and then tonight I really went full speed and re-arranged, and re-organized the whole space. I am loving it, and cant wait to start working in there!












OK, so there you have it. And for some reason blogger is being a pain in the butt tonight with the pictures, so I will show you more of how I organized and decorated in another post!
Thanks for checking this out!
I am linking up to the following party for the first time!! YAY!

I am lucky enough to have my own room too; however, I am extremely envious of your island style workspace. I wish I would've laid my out my space a little better . . . maybe my next one cause I know I won't live here forever. You sure do have a TON of supplies. Great job on cleaning it up! It truly looks fabulous!

Awesome! I can't wait to be that organized. Well, let's face it, I will never be that organized but I hope to get close sometime!

Great job! Love all the storage you have. I used to have a reasonably organized craft room, too, (http://sewmanydreams.blogspot.com/2009/07/shelves-are-in.html) but I jammed too much stuff into it, and now it's looking much like your before pictures! Enjoy your 'new' space!
