Taking it one step at a time

I've gotten some more work done on the scraproom. Here's a picture of the wall unit completely empty.
 This is what the new Elfa system looks like with nothing on it yet...
 Here it is with my Cricut, ribbon rack, and ink storage... just the beginning.
I'll post some more when it's finished. I'll also include pictures of how the rest of the room looks with all my scrapping supplies organized and not thrown all over the room.

Scraproom Before

I ventured out in the snow today, which turned out to be no problem at all since the roads ended up being fairly clear. I picked up a friend (who is also a scrapbooker) and headed over to the Container Store to pick up the Elfa unit. She had never been there but thought it was really cool. Well, I'll be moving some stuff around to clear out the area where the unit is going. I figured I would post some before pictures now to give you an idea of what I'm working with. I wish I had pictures of the dining room when that was my work area because it's even worse than this.

I hope to get the new unit set up by the end of this week. I'll take some pictures throughout the process as well.

Some updates

Last week, I won a set of Cri-Kits from Creations with Christina. I haven't had a chance to try them out yet, but I can't wait until I do. Since it's winter break this week, and it's the Annual Elfa Sale at the Container Store, I'm going to venture out either later today (after the roads are a little more clear) or tomorrow to pick up my new scraproom system. I will finally have an organized place to create! That will be so great because I went from my dining room table (actually, my parents' dining room table) to my spare bedroom where there's nowhere to work. I'll still be in that room, but I'll have a whole wall of workspace and storage space. My goal is to put all of my supplies on that one wall. I'll post some before and after pictures once I'm finished.

Proud of Myself

I'm really excited because I'm working on organizing the supplies I have currently, and not buying many more to just sit around and junk up my room anymore. I will be able to start buying again soon though since the Annual Elfa Sale at The Container Store starts either Friday or Sunday. I'm going there to get a new scrapbook desk and organizer by creating myself a wall of shelves and drawers and stuff. Hopefully I'll be able to post some pictures of an actual scraproom one of these days!
