Crafty Space Good Will Find

I'm still scared!
I have not had a lot of time to get down and organize my mess in the basement, but I hope to be able to tackle it today!
I have been keeping up with Molly Lee's progress on her blog and she has some found some really fabulous storage ideas from all places Good Will!
As you may know I don't have a budget for this makeover/cleanup but I love her Portable Crafting Kit!  This would work wonders for me as my crafting stoarge area is dark, and in the basement, I'm always carrying everything that I need up to the kitchen to work.  I went in search of a beautiful tray but I could not find one, but I did pick up this table top wooden storage rack.  I've got a few ideas of what to do with it, but first I need to paint it out.  It only cost me $$5 so I don't feel too guilty for breaking my non budget!
I hope to roll up my sleeves and start sorting and organizing so I can get back to what I love, crafting!

Happy Shopping!

I'm scared!
I did not realize how much cr%$ one can accumulate over time!
I don't know how I'm going to get everything sorted in a couple of days!!!!  It seems to be all the little things.
I need a rest!!!
In the words of Scarlett O'Hara, tomorrow is another day!

1 Room Down, 1 To Go!!!

Well after a couple of hours of sorting and with the help of my 4 year old DD I was able to clear out most of the crap from the library/office and it looks great!  There are still a few problem areas but overall I'm so pleased with the work that we have accomplished!  It was very important for me to get the stuff off the floor so there is less worry for my 1 year old.  I've decided not to do anything more until I tackle the basement, which is frightful!
I never thought that I would say this, but I really hope I don't sell anything for a couple of days as I really need to sort out the mess in the basement!

Crafty Room Challenge/Clean Up

Well I've been inspired yet again by my lovely Team!  This room which is more of a library than a studio has been a sore spot in my house for almost 4 years! It was suppose to be my creative room but oh so quickly it has become my dumping ground!  Anything business related that I would buy would litteraly get dumped in this room.  Now this room was right off my side door(which is used as the front door) and I would always keep the door closed as well as the windows because I was too embarrased to have anyone see what a mess I was keeping.
Well after reading MollyLee's blog, I decided to do something about it!  This challenge is on for 4 weeks but to be honest I need this done ASAP!  I have a 1 year old that is getting into everything. I am going to set up shop in the basement which I'm not thrilled about but it has the most space to house everything.  Once this room is cleared the real work will begin!  I allowed myself a budget of $0 as I know underneath all this crap is storage containers and baskets which I've bought but could not find!  I'm excited to finally get this room back!

Listing Challenge Day 10

Today is the last day of the challenge and I must say that it has been a bit difficult to keep up, but I'm really glad that I did.  I enjoyed "meeting" the other participants and visiting their shop and finding out what kind of creations they make.

As I final farwell, I'm re-listing a "popular" item of mine.  Now although I have not sold this item yet, it has many hearts, it made the front page (YEAH!!) and I've gotten some convo's from people saying that they really like this card.  Now why has it not sold, I'm not sure but I'm keeping the faith.

Listing Challenge Day 8

Well I see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Well I guess I don't need to be that dramatic as it has not been all that difficult to stick with this challenge.  I've just come to realize that I need to have a bit more dicipline and a bit more organization within my day inorder to get this done at a reasonable time.  Well today is not the start of one of those days, but that's okay.  I am relisting this expired item which I think is really cute.  Yellow Butterflies Thank You Card.

Today I am featuring
