Was browsing through some of my photos this week and came across this one that I took back in August on a mini family vacation.
Enjoy your weekend!Pin It
Just wanted to give an update on how my total re-organization is going……sloooooowly. I did an initial run through of our home office and decided that I had it fairly organized. There are a few areas that needed a little work and I needed some pretties to keep it looking so cluttered.
Here are some before pics:
This is looking in from the laundry room. Thankfully, the desk fit perfectly between the doors that go upstairs and out to the garage. My plan is to get some pretty boxes for storage to show through those glass doors. I also have some canvas baskets that will be going up top that will store some supplies. And last but not least, the desk will be clutter free!
This bookshelf is the first thing you see when you walk in from the garage. As you can see, the entrance into the laundry room is just to the left. (Before we added our garage, that doorway went to the outside). The very top of the bookshelf will hold a charging station for our phones, keys & wallets (the ivy will stay). On the first shelf, I will have a prettier basket for the mail (I’m so tired of it landing on the kitchen counter!). The canvas baskets that I mentioned above, are the ones that will be going on top of the desk. In their place, I plan on putting actual books there! Currently, in that green box on the bottom shelf, are our warranties & instructions for all our appliances & gadgets. That and the other box will be replaced with a couple of file boxes that are more pleasing to the eye.
This file cabinet is on the other side of the entrance to the laundry room. I don’t like it’s current set up at all…who left those Christmas decorations out?! Oh yeah, that was me, hehe. Everything atop that cabinet is going! I want to put a lamp in the corner and leave the rest empty if possible. On the wall, I want to make a framed magnetic board like the one in my studio except I will cover it with coordinating material instead of leaving it silver.
To give the office a finished look, I am adding a new rug in front of the door coming in from the garage and will add some sort of window treatment to the windows (I’m thinking valances or cornices).
As for the stuff you can’t see (like the tons of paper inside that filing cabinet) well, I am slowly going through that. It is my LEAST favorite part of the whole process. So overwhelming!
I can’t wait to finish this room, so I can move on to the next!Pin It
For me, this is a year of change. I am trying to SIMPLIFY around here and clearing out my inventory is one of the things I have been thinking about for a while.
What does this mean for A Scrappy Design?
*I tend to have a bit of ADD so all of the above is going to be a little tough for me so prayers about this would be much appreciated.
In the the last couple of months I’ve lost my only two consignment contracts which has forced me to take a good hard look at what I want to do going forward with the shop. One shop decided to no longer do consignment and the other shop, my local scrapbook store, is closing. I am extremely sad about the latter and don’t really want to talk about it. :(
So why bittersweet you ask? Well, BITTER for me because I lost two contracts and am losing my favorite scrapbook store but SWEET for you because I now have more inventory than I know what to do with so…..I’M HAVING A SALE!
P.S. I would love your feedback. If you could give me some insight as to what your favorite products are currently in or have been sold from my shop I would greatly appreciate it.Pin It
I don’t know about your part of the world but it’s been crazy cold here. We’ve had an unusually cold and wet winter. We are not use to getting this much snow or having our temps this cold. This past weekend was our 2nd winter storm in the last two months and this is how we got through it.
We took pictures.
We did crafts.
We acted silly.
And we made messes.
All in all it was a good long weekend. Today we had to go back to reality, except for all the kiddos. They cancelled school today and now have cancelled school tomorrow. They’re saying that more storms are coming, they’re just not sure how bad they will be.
Hope you all are staying warm & surviving winter!Pin It
