WOYWW (12 August 2012)

I know after last weeks desk shame I should hang my head very very low.  However, it got far far worse.


I am in the process of down sizing stash.  Yes, its got to be done.  First phase is empty all the monthly kits out of the boxes.  This week I have tackled Studio Calico kits and have put them all in 12 x 12 bags, then filed in hopper croppers.  Instead of my expedit and wardrobe covered in boxes they now fit on half of the expedit.  Looks so much better already.

As a reward I have done some scrapping.  I started on my LSNED 2012 album by making some of the pages as I am waiting for my photos. 
 
This is how my desk now looks after all those boxes have been thrown away:

Pop on over to Julia to take a look at some other crafty spaces.

Goodness. That was a lot of sorting. But downsizing is sometimes needed. Very different look in the after photo. Happy WOYWW from #2.

Lol, at first I thought you were moving! But a good idea to get it all sorted and the boxes recycled, bet they take up much less space now, Like the idea of a reward too, ie, scrapping for you! Good luck with the 10 things for September too, really hope you get to have that view every day.

It is always hard to get sorting done, until you really get into it. Job well done!! Love to see some close ups of your mini book!

Tee Hee. If you read my blog you will know that I had to send DH around the house to the other door cause my room (in the middle of the house) was totally blocked and I was trapped in the middle, with no way thru from the front door. But it is gratifying isn't it, to have it much improved? How long will it last? Not long enough :)

It's enormously satisfying isn't it, freeing up the space. I bet you had a moment of regret, because the kits are so lovely in their boxes and all sort of together, but it does make sense really! And you found time to scrap stuff as well, you are a whirlwind!

Cathy said...

You're getting there - at least its all out of the boxes LOL!! Thank you for sharing your space.

I would have loved to be there during the downsizing lol... it's always so gratifying to see things organised but now you have created more space which in my brain equals more stash lol.

There must have been some really yummy stuff hiding in those SC boxes, it must have been fun to see what was in them. I'm in Shimelle's class, too! Glad you took time to scrap -- it can't be all work and no play. Happy WOYWW! ~ Laura #124

Eliza said...

That is one load of work, it has to get worse before it can get better that is what they say. Goodluck sorting it all out, you will get there one day and it will be wonderful when done.

Happy WOYWW
