Friday...

So, it's Friday, and that typically means no work for 3 yes 3 days... But, as my little monkey was sick yesterday, I am going to have to work from home to catch up and work my allotted hours. :(

Oh well, I guess that I will do it when he is asleep or something... God knows that I would not get anything done if he was awake!

Not much else going on here... just giving the kiddo some medicine and trying to clean up... My scrap room is a mess... This is so embarrassing, but here you go... Look at this....

This is my desk... You know where you should have space to actually do something... I don't think you could even find a place to lay the paper!



This is where I have tried to become organized. I have a clip it up (which I love), some shelving, and some drawers, but it is all a mess!



To the left is a stack of my stamps, books of my stamps, some ribbon, a large bundle of card stock, and my revolution...



To the right, my beloved little puppies (Bella, Charlie, and Little Bit), a tote (full of crap), and my Studio Calico box... with 3 kits in it!



So you would think that I would have space to at least put my feet... Oh NO! This is under my desk! What a mess! Can you believe this?



So now that I am thoroughly embarrassed.... Let's see if I can clean it up a bit... I think it may be time for a RAK.... Yes, that is a good idea.

So, I am going to clean out this mess (it will probably take me a few days) but when I am done, I will post a picture of the items I will be giving away! So if you want to enter, leave me a comment, and I will pick someone randomly to will all the goodies that I have cleared out. I know it looks crazy, but I know there is some good stuff in there!

Thanks for stopping by...

I'm sure there are some treasures buried in all your scrap supplies! Keep up the cleaning and just think of how good it will feel to have space to scrap again!

Rachel said...

Good luck and just keep envisioning your beautiful organized space when you are done!

You CAN do it! Just think of how much scrapping you'll get done once you know where everything is! Good luck cleaning and organizing.

Carmen Pauls said...

Oooh, I want to enter! :) My desk looks even worse than that right now -- and I have an "at home weekend crop" (aka I am ignoring the house mess and scrapping all day tomorrow) planned, so I guess my crop will have to start with some clean-up. :)

I have the same problem...mine was clean for about half a minute! Time to clean again since SIL is coming in a week! I always say a messy room means you're using your stuff and creating something!
