It had been almost 2 years since my last craft room clean out, so I figured it was about time! A few months ago I added two more shelves full of products and tools, so some of my room was already organized, but most of it wasn’t.
I dumped everything out on my work surface and sorted it into three bins: 1) donate, 2) put away [belongs somewhere else], and 3) keep. I also kept a large trash bag close by for items that needed to be thrown away. While everything was out, I dusted and cleaned my shelves and drawers. I organized the “keep” items and put them back into my space, and then let out a sigh of relief as I looked around at my lovely, clean, and well organized space.
Of course, being a scrapbooker, I recorded the whole process. Plus, the photos will prove that for a few minutes on Feb 9, 2013 my craft room was actually clean! Here’s the proof:
I chose a photo sleeve configuration with four landscape 4×6 pockets, and one large 6×8 pocket. I cut out bits and pieces of Webster Albums Made Easy Journaling Cards and added them to my 4×6 photos and title card before inserting them into the sleeves.
To fill the large pocket, I created a mini 6×8 scrapbook page with a 6×8 piece of Simply Spring patterned paper, two smaller photos, and some elements cut out from the Webster journaling cards. A bit of washi tape finished off the page nicely.
