1.6.10

I just finished about 95% of my craft room decluttering and am so happy with how it looks. I am tired of "too much." I only want to have what I love, what I'll use. I'm not inspired when there is clutter around me and every surface is covered with something. Now I have space on the shelves and everything is something I will use. Here are a few photos. (you can click on any photo for an enlargement)







This is just a bowl of favorite little vintage items. Tiny photos, paper flowers, old spools, scraps of lace, chandelier crystals, brooches....fun. :)













These are the two bookshelves behind my work table. Yes, I only have that much cardstock and patterned paper. But I love every single piece of it. Who needs thousands of pieces of paper you'll never use? Under the paper is all of my label stickers and die cuts. I love labels. It's a problem. :) And seam binding.....and glitter. I'm happy that most of my storage is pretty containers, mixing my love of vintage with a purpose for being on the shelf. I do have a few more little shelves under a window that hold my Thickers/letters, soldering supplies, photos, and paint. But they are a little boring, so I don't have pretty photos of those, ha.

Let me know if you have any questions about any of my storage or supplies.

Keep warm! We are stocked up on hot cocoa and will be having chili for dinner on Thursday as we watch the Horns play for the national championship. Hook 'em Horns!
