Once upon a time I set up a lovely scrapbook space that looked like this. It was organized and a perfect place to work on my albums.
But sadly, life got busy and my tidy space soon started to look like this.
Truth be told, this space never worked well for my scrapbook/office area because it was in a corner of Kole's nursery and the only time I could realistically work on my albums was when Kole was napping. Didn't really think that one through. :) So it soon became a dumping ground for any and everything. I knew this room would take hours to sort through and clean out and organize and pack.
So last Saturday Kenny took the kids to the San Diego zoo (Kole's first trip!) and while they were visiting the panda bears and monkeys, I went into attack mode.
I grabbed this little packing sack and a set of boxes (my best friends lately), turned on some music, and went to work!
Two hours in and making progress. It doesn't look like it, but it was progress nonetheless.
Perfect little compartments for journaling cards!
Good-bye labels! It will be a fun day when I pull you out again!
Still had pictures up from last December! So I took them down.
And put up a few I had on hand. Just so the walls won't be totally blank for the next two months.
I started moving everything into the hallway.
Then we made countless trips to our storage shed. We've been visiting the storage shed a lot lately. And goodwill. Slowly, one room at a time, I am de cluttering and packing away the things we can do without for the new few months. It feels so good to simplify!
The rest of the room still looks like this.
I will have to gear up for another emotional day when I say good-bye to the turtles.
