Is this really the same space???

So I have almost finished my organizing... I don't actually ever think I will be "finished" but for now I as so happy with this space. Can you believe that this is the same desk?

Isn't this amazing! You can see the entire desk top!!!

This is a new organizer that I purchased. Love it! I put my buttons in a clear container that I already had (Prima flowers came in it), then I purchased 2 metal buckets at Target for $1.00 each. They now hold new embellishments and rub-ons that I want to use. The metal basket came from World Market and it holds all my flock, glitter, some glazes, and a few liquid adhesives.

Inside the drawers, which are labeled... I have my inks, stickles, and adhesives. The slots hold large embellishments and my stamping blocks.
I hung that organizer on the wall... it has tons of alphabets and little embellies that easily get lost. There is a few of those $1.00 tins on top of it (I haven't filled them yet). Below in the hounds tooth bag is all my loose acrylic stamps... I love this bag. And the double metal bin on the desk holds my loose chipboard and regular use punches.

This is to the left... on the floor. This is my tote. The gap box is the perfect size for layouts in progress. The ribbon holder is so full that I needed the basket on the floor for overflow. That's okay, at least it is all in one spot! Those binders hold acrylic stamps... mostly Technique Tuesday, as they come pre-punched for binder storage. And as I use them a ton, they are easy to reach.

And to the right, a single bin for paper I want to use now. Simple and easy. I can go through it easily and purge when I need to.
For the scary part... under the desk...

Totally organized! The bin is full of all my cardstock. It will be organized by color but it is not right at this moment... Soon though. The binders are organized by occasion... holidays, special occasions, colors, and scraps.
Now for the RAK... here are some pictures of what you will be getting! I actually had so much stuff that I will be sending out 2 RAKS.... This is for the first person...

Aren't you excited? I am! I will draw Tuesday afternoon! I will also have pictures for the second person! Thanks for looking! have a great day!

Mandee-OH MY GOSH! Your scrapbooking space looks awesome! I love all of your organization buckets-and for only a dollar. They are perfect! All of your organization and hard work paid off. You will appreciate all the time put into cleaning your space-hopefully now things will be easier and more convenient to find. Keep up the great work!!! =)
