Mission Organization

I love to organize and clean. It makes me one happy person when everything has a specific spot. I don't just do this at the begining of the year it's a full time thing for me. One would think I would have everything in my house organized by now but it doesn't work that way. I have more things than space to house everything. Which is a big problem for most people I think. Anywho, I am getting there. I purchased more storage containers in red & green for christmas things so that it's easy to know what holiday decor is stored where.

My sister and I went to home depot the other day on a mission to find something that would help me get my craft room more put together. I purchased a shelf and peg board. I love the peg board!! I just think it looks so cute and useful. In my craft room I do not have a real work table I'm using our old coffee table that I was going to give away when we lived in the apartment but decided to keep. It's not much but it's a start and I prefer to spread everything out on the floor and work there usually anyway.


I even have space for all the ribbon I have left over from the wedding and other projects that i'm never really sure what to do with...but now at least they have a home.



 I searched for ideas online of how to store stickers and paper and a dozen other project pieces and some women out there have the most Amazing craft rooms! This desk is from Pottery Barn and I love it. I also love those leaning shelves. One day they will be mine!

  3. I also have green containers for Christmas decorations; I also have pink for Easter; and orange for fall. We barely have any storage space in our house, so it really made me get organized in there!

  6. The peg board is so practical and I love the home you made for your ribbons, too.
    I am starting to see cheaper versions of that Pottery Barn project desk (try Grandin Road, for example), so if the PB one is beyond your reach, you might find something similar elsewhere.

    I love being organized, but I'm sorry so say my craft area is FAR from being so!
