Here is my couch and coffee table, covered in my scrap supplies that were on top of the table and shelves.
TA DA!! Here is my new space. It isn't a whole lot different, but I was able to bring a lot of my goodies out to make them more available, and spread my cramped supplies out more so it is easier to get to. I also pulled out my under-cabinet lights I bought almost 2 years ago, they really help light up my table.
These are my new file cabinets. Full of stuff already!
I bought a wire shelf system on clearance a few months ago, and just got around to using it. Unfortunately, most the hardware was missing, as was part of the rod to hang the racks on. I pulled out an old curtain rod and used zipties to attach to my shelf bracket. I know it is ghetto, but it works for now. This allowed me to make my own version of a clip-it-up using jump rings and binder clips (more ghetto).
Here is one side of my scrap table.
The other side of my scrap table.
This is the cabinet on the left side of my table. It is pretty much the same, just moved all my altered projects to the basket to the right of my new filing cabinets, and it is less crowded inside. I love this cabinet, eventhough it is ugly!
Just for fun, here are the boys, cuddling up in a box!
Another fun note, it hardly ever thunder and lightnings here, it is right now though. I love the sounds! I have my back door open, and am enjoying listening to the rumbling!
I was able to actually scrapbook the other night, I have been out of pictures for some time now, but I found these pics of my hubby's family. After 8 years of being together, I still haven't met most of his family. This poses a problem scrapping people you have never met. I like how it turned out though.

Notice the missing computers??? Now it is mostly scrapbook storage I am not using anymore.
That is it for the spare room, on to the bathroom!
Ahhhh, a clean sink, and I can find everything now!
I have a floor!
The laundry closet, CLEAN!!
AND, drumroll please..................................
Now I can scrapbook!!!
Thank you for sharing my cleaning journey. Now, all you need to do is check in with me once in a while, and keep me on my toes!
It is so nice to have these rooms done. I am not doing the floors until all the rooms are done, so we don't track dirt, hair, and scraps into clean rooms. Today is Day 3 and we are attacking the spare room. Christmas stuff that is not put away, Cliff's computer collection (its got to go), sb storage, lots of odds and ends. Can you tell our spare room is our storage room? This will be an all day job, if we get done, we will do the bathroom next. However, we may hit a road bump...The NASCAR race this weekend is tonight, we might just DVR it and watch it tomorrow.

This allows me to ignore everything else and just play all day. That is going to change right now! See my lovely, clean, scrap space? Say goodbye for now! It is now going to house everything that needs a home, until my house is clean once again and the clutter put away! I will leave a tiny space for checking email and such, but I am cutting myself off from scrapping till I can clear off my table! What a reward that will be huh?!
For now, here is the rest of my house. If I can't be honest with strangers, how can I be honest with myself, right? I can't believe I am showing this, but accountability always helps me.....
Here is my Spare Room
Here is my Bedroom
Here is my Living Room
Luckily, I have already cleaned my Kitchen, so you don't have to see all my dirty dishes!!
So, in closing, now that you have seen all this, I am still the same person, but will focus more on my house and use scrapping as a reward. A cool plus...my hubby is a video game junkie! I am adding his video game mess to my table, and he can't play games till the house is cleaned up too! Now that I am not working, at the moment anyway, I am going to be a domestic goddess, but I need lots of help, well, encouragement! This being the entire purpose of this post, honesty and accountability. I will post pics of my progress in the near future.
