close up of the orange crate I hung on the wall to work as shelving.

closet with the rearranged items since the trundle was moved out making room for stuff under the bed.

Desk and bookshelf

bed with some items on it.

the little tornado came in and rearranged some things, but you can see along the wall that the rubbermaid boxes are gone, they are under the bed.

>Been a while

>Well it has been a while, I haven’t forgotten about posting, just haven’t gotten around to it. I do have some pictures to post. I have not worked on the craft room in a week, but have been working on the rest of my house. When I was sick it kind of got out of hand, so had to take care of the rest of it first. Would like to have it all done by next Friday. I did take the trundle out from under the day bed so I could store boxes under there and not have them stacked up. The cats seem to like have a bed in the garage 🙂 Not that it will stay there.

I did receive and email today from someone who thought I sold scrapbook supplies (I like them all, would not be able to choose). She is wanted to make an album for her husband’s retirement, so I offered to help her out 🙂 maybe it is a calling, who knows, we shall see. I am also hoping to start having friends come over to scrap once or twice a month. I seem to be inspiring people, that was not my itent. I just want to get caught up, but hey I don’t mind all the same.

Ok, will upload the photos next and hope to soon have scrap pages to show off on here 🙂

>Some progress

>I got two rotations done in the craft room, ended up doing more in the game closet and craft closet than what was in the family room, but a big chunk was still taken out. I had wanted to do a third rotation, but have been busy getting math stuff together for my oldest son. I am not sure how much i will get done tomorrow. I have a very sore throat and am going to the doctore in the morning, so we shall see.

Will try and post pictures tomorrow.

>Done for the day

Look at how far I have gotten!!

Some stuff is still on the bed needing to be put away, and yes I do have to stack some boxes on the floor, no room other wise, but as I use things up those will go down too 🙂

another angle, not entirely dif, though I did rearrange the book shelf a little

the closet I have talked about but haven’t shown.

Man, I am done for today, I am just hitting burn out on it for the day and don’t want all together or I may just move the stuff back in there as is. I wanted to show pics of the room to show that I wasn’t just throwing the stuff back in there, but was organizing it with what I have 🙂

I am hoping to get to scrap some tonight since I have everything I need to get to 🙂
Will be back at it tomorrow.
22 month old is trying to empty the dishwasher, better get to it.

>Making Progress

>Well I just did my second rotation in the craft room and it had fewer interuptions than the first, and I made a big chunk in the family room dissappear 🙂 Son knocked a container in the top of the closet down while running around, but it was one that I needed to go through anyway 🙂 Will definately take pictures. I do have a big stuffed lizard on the floor, it is son’s and I need to stitch it up, will prob try and do that this week so I can get it out of there. Also would really like to fix his boppy pillow for the same reason, can’t put them away to be fixed, so better get them fixed so they aren’t in there 🙂

>Cut Short

>Well, I didn’t do much yesterday and when I was in there late last night we realized Patrick had gotten sick in his bed, so that stopped me 😦 I have worked a little today, but my kitty wanted lovings and Jacob needed help with a game on the computer. Hopefully I can be more productive later today 🙂 I think I am going to hold off on pics, unless it is something big, like the pile in the family room going down 🙂 And then a final results photo 🙂

>Done for the day and the promised photos

after round one for the day

the opposite view

round two (told you there wasn’t much difference)

opposite view

the sewing box I went through (found two things for the airman’s attic, better than none)

the quilt I need to finish for Jacob

Can you see the clean section behing the couch, woo hoo, may be done sooner than three weeks, we shall see 🙂 There are a lot of boxes to go through.

final shots of the room, see the kitty comfy on the bed.

And the other angle

Ok, so I already know what 2011 will be, year of the sewing machine 🙂 Maybe hubby can get me a nice work horse one next year for Christmas, with a button hole, that is a must have for me!!
Well, I didn’t time my work this time, just did it. Got a hole row cleared in the family room. I do have a stack of rubbermaids in the room now, which aestetically (sp) I do not like, but they are my scrap things, so rather than go out and buy a better way to store them, I plan to use them!! Oh and my son’s kitty loves the clean bed to lay on 🙂

>Must stay the course

>Well, I wanted to scrap a page, prob is half my stuff is in the pile in the family room, so I did print the January 2005 sketches (www.pagemaps.com) and picked out the photos and ribbon for the first layout, but that is as far as I got. I also brought in a large rubbermaid like box and it is full of sewing things I have begun. One is a “yellow brick road” quilt that I just need to bind and top stitch to be done, made with the scraps from my oldests nursery. You don’t know how bad I want to do that right now. Must stay the course. I will be sewing here and there so will prob include that one in my get done projects. Figured it would be a nice 8th b-day gift for him. I started working on it when he was 9 months and had wondered where I stuffed it. Again though I need to get that stuff organized and in that room, so once again, must stay the course 🙂 am still hoping to post pictures, but am going to go through that box first and see what else is in there.

>Going Slow

>It takes me about 45 minutes to go through, sort and put away one small (shoe box) box of stuff. So I have already reevaluated and changed my deadline to 8 Feb, so three weeks from Monday, there is no way I can get it all done in 2 days, unless I lock myself in there and ignore my family and the rest of the house. Not gonna happen. I will scrap in the process though for little rewards, so as to not get behind in that area 🙂 I have been taking pictures today also, but you really can’t see too much progress, maybe a box gone here, something changed on the book shelf there. But will continue to plug away and track my progress. Will post pictures later tonight.
