Workin' It...

I finally got my rear in gear and started in on my "studio" space again! Taking a break just to write it here so I can feel more accountable! lol. I'll post some pics when I'm done in a few...months. Nah- it should be a day or two (fingers crossed).

I went and got a large basket (ala Ali E)to hold my 12x12 paper but after putting my papers in it--it just didn't seem sturdy enough to me. So I returned it and bought a metal file basket instead. I *love* it! Now I just have to find a Cropper Hopper Paper Holder for my cardstock and I'll be satisfied on paper storage FINALLY. I've had it seperated in craft keeper folders with one or two manufacturers per folder, labelled on the side. That has made it easier but still- they're floppy and get kicked around. NOT ANYMORE! woot!

Next mission: organizing/storing magazines. I have a TON of magazines. And that's AFTER purging a bazillion. I don't want to get rid of any of my DOMINO, Cottage Livings or Real Simples... those add up after a couple years, ya know?! But I love going back over past issues for inspiration. If I didn't do that, I'd consider giving them away. But I DO use them.

The kids are going to Vacation Bible School in the morning. If I can peel them out of bed...it's 11:34pm and they're still in there giggling. oy. I foresee grumbling and whining over cereal in my near future. good times.

Tomorrow's agenda: continue cleaning my studio, dishes, laundry and the Flylady mission..don't know what that is yet. If all goes well, I'll be lounging in a clean house tomorrow evening, sipping ice tea and watching The Closer with freshly painted toenails...

Well- I know this post has been MOST interesting and you want it to go on and on forever...but I simply MUST get back to cleaning.

It's so satifying to re-do your space and have it work better for you, isn't it? Have fun with it :)
