I'm SO organised now!

It took ALL day yesterday, but I'm finally properly organised in my new room. It is so awesome (for a neat freak like me) to have a place for everything....and that it actually looks pretty good is a bonus.

So, as promised, here's some photos.

This first pic is the very large bookcase that I got when I moved into this room a few weeks ago. Until yesterday it was jammed with so much stuff that I couldn't find where anything was! Now it's nice and organised....the top 2 shelves hold paint, random stamps, and bits and pieces that don't really fit anywhere else. The next two shelves are stamps. This bookcase is 91cm wide...that's almost 2 metres of stamps!!!! The next shelf holds all my punches (yes there are alot of them!) and wheels and the bottom shelf is all of my crafting magazines.
Here's my desk...ink caddy, embellishment caddy, paper trimmer, Copics, and adhesives etc...you know, all that stuff you use ALL the time :) Oh yeah, and that pile you can see on the left side of the desk is my half finished Basic Grey Calender kit...yes I know it's Feb already but I waited and got it half price!!! I plan to finish this weekend and show you next week.
This is the 6 cube shelf that I got yesterday....how cute are those pink boxes??? They match my bed sheets perfectly....LOL. In the far left one is rub-ons, Thickers and various alpha chipboard & stickers. The middle box has embellishments....all my Hodgepodge Hardware, Pretties and a whole bunch of random embellishing type things. The box on the right, closest to my desk is SU! card stock organised by colour. On the bottom row are all my packages of DSP and chipboard shapes. The non-SU! stuff in the bottom left cube still needs to be a bit better organised....but I need some 12x12 paper trays...next on the shopping list :)
This is the big 12 cube shelf and in it I've organised everything by type....I've got all my flowers, embossing stuff, envelopes, ribbons, glitter, things to alter, colouring mediums tools and extra cardstock all sorted into these cubes. On top are coils for the bind-it-all and the box and basket are full of cards....might have to start posting out some RAK's.
It makes me so happy to look at it now and know that it will be super easy to find what I'm looking for.

Finally, I thought I'd show you something crafty!!!! I worked on this layout for days....I just couldn't get it to the point where I was happy with it. But earlier this week it finally came together. While I don't think it's perfect, I am pretty happy with it. The photo was taken on Lara's christening day, when we all went up to the hospital to see Gran. She just couldn't take her eyes off the adorable Miss Lara...are really, who could blame her? Lara looked incredibly gorgeous in that dress.

I think I had such a hard time with the L/O because every time I looked at the photo I got really emotional....the last time I'd get a picture of 4 generations of the women of my family :( So, here's all the girlies that I love:
OK, better go put some ice in the air cooler....it's currently 34 C here (93F) and that's inside with the cooler going!!!!! This weekend is shaping up to be a scorcher....the headlines in today's paper said that NSW is going to be the hottest place on the planet this Sunday!!! So I'm planning a nice relaxing weekend, hopefully getting creative in my new space.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend,
Kristie

Oh, will you come up and re-do my space? Yours is wonderful!

I love your 4 generations page. How very sweet of your gran to be looking at the baby. She colud have looked at the camera and smiled, but how sweet of her to gaze at her great granddaughter.
