What am I doing?

I’m just over here being crafty. My scrapbooking things have gotten out of control. They are everywhere and nowhere. Some things are organized. Other things are clearly not in a special place.
My daughter’s boyfriend, who is 12, is a neat nik, an organizer, a clean freak in the best sense of the term. Therefore, he is the son I wished I had. I asked him to look at a picture of my chaotic scrapbook area. Area is a loose term in this case.
He said to put the stuff in the closet if that was an option. Genius! The solution was so simple.
So I have already put up one shelf by myself. I felt very accomplished. I have also moved another shelf unit into the closet. The scrapbooks are organized by color. So I put them in containers with matching colors. No one has to do that. It’s one of my own habits. I like things to be organized by color.
So for the better part of today, I will be in the closet – hanging up shelves and picture frames.

I was also inspired by this Pinterest post. It’s not an exact replica but it’s closer than I ever thought I would get. 🙂

  1. 🙂 Excellent! Congratulations!
    I like things neat and organized, too. But then there are times when I collect stuff in piles…yikes, I think I need you to come by and put them in order 😉
    Have a very HAPPY evening 🙂
