Getting Organized

I've spent some time this week reorganizing things in my scrap room. I just haven't had any creative juices at all lately, and I think it's due in part to the "chaos" of my supplies. I went through every sheet of scrapbook paper I own -- put a lot into a donate pile, but still kept a lot. I put collections together in vertical storage boxes so they're easier to locate, and then re-categorized all of the miscellaneous patterned paper in the horizontal paper rack. Ahhhh, now that feels SO much better...not to mention it's fun to look at! Yes, I do know that I didn't put my papers in ROYGBIV order. :-)

Now I just need to work on all of the little embellishments. Currently, I have them sorted by type, but am seriously considering changing to a simple, color-ordered system. I think maybe the problem is that I simply have too much stuff...or is that really a problem?! lol Anyway...if any of my organized scrapping friends have great ideas for organizing all of my little embellies, please feel free to share!

Ahhh! So THIS is why my girls don't have a completed Life Book yet... I couldn't be that organized if I tried! I'm looking into digital, but that is daunting also.

Way to go on getting organized!

GREAT job! I want paper racks like that. It's on my list of things to buy if/when we move.
