This past weekend was all about deep cleaning my spare bedroom and getting rid of as much of my craft supply as possible. I am happy to report…mission accomplished! Here it is in it’s finest form:

Okay, so it’s not exactly HGTV-worthy, but it’s totally functional in keeping the majority of my supplies hidden away in the closet.

In order to maximize the most of the closet, I hung two shoe organizers to store all my embellishments, either by stacking in a pile or storing in a box.

One whole shelf (…and maybe a box below…eek!) hold all my Thickers + other letter stickers. What can I say, I love my alphas!

IKEA shelves, all neat + tidy.

Hallway into the spare room.

View of the desk from the hallway…

…and from the other side.

Where I keep my Autumn Eleven book + little scraps to go with it.

3400 yards of bakers twine and several thousand tickets…excessive much? Why yes! Ha! But I do love the color they bring to my desk!

And here are the bags + bags of my supplies that are going! Now they just need to leave the building and I will really feel accomplished!

P.S. All these photos were taken with my DSLR, which I haven’t used in…forever! I’ve been all about the iPhone + Instagram combo for so long, I forgot how much I love using a real camera and doing the whole upload/edit/blog shebang. It’s good to be back!

    I love love love LOVE your craft room! It might not be HGTV-worthy, but it is neat, clean, tidy, and well-organized! And I would love to play in there! πŸ˜€

    Questions:
    1) What is that desk? I love it!
    2) What are you doing with the craft supplies?

    Ann-Marie – you are an inspiration. I, too, love all the color. You are a proud addition to our family! P.S. – whoever gets the craft leftovers will be very lucky. xoxo

    Yeah. Do what do you do with your “stuff”? give to family? friends? or return to AC? Just curious ; )

    @Sierra @Clara: I haven’t actually decided what I’m going to do with my supplies. I can’t imagine just dropping them off at the local thrift store because I feel like they should go to people who would love to have them. Any ideas? πŸ™‚

    πŸ˜€ Oh boy, do I have ideas! πŸ˜‰ Want my address? lol Or you could do giveaways….or find out if there is a local organization whose participants would like to scrapbook, like Boys and Girls club or a young mother’s group or senior citizens.

      Hi Jeanne! Thanks so much for your kind words! I bought the tickets at a party store in Utah called Zurchers (pretty sure they have an online store too!). Hope this helps! (:
