It seems several of us are in the process of either setting up new spaces or re organizing or current ones (like myself! The fun part of spring cleaning!!)

So what are you up to? What have you done and what is still on your to do list? How are you organizing your supplies? any tips and tricks to share?

And pics are always welcome

What about transforming an extra closet (if you have one, I know closet space in our house is at a premium!) into a scrap closet!?!

Those closets are cool. I really need to get my area under control. I was waiting for another picture organizer to come in that I ordered. But so far nothing . I need to just get it done.

I am!! I bought those cubes from Michaels and I am in the process of organizing everything now. I will take pics when it is all done. I would love to get more of the cubes but I don't think I have room for more right now.

I canít wait to see everyones spaces!

I have a lot to do - right now I canít even see my desk because I stopped in the middle of trying to get things organized the other night. I did get Cadenís play area cleaned up and other areas of the basement so now I want to focus on my area! I really need to find a better way of organizing my patterned paper - I often forget about my paper packs and now I have multiple pieces (paper, chipboard, embellishments) from different lines so Iíd like to keep those together, too, without forgetting about them. I think after dinner Iíll head downstairs and hopefully make some progress!

Iím loving this! From the looks of it, its just a towel bar with ringsÖ too bad it wouldnít work in my space

(from the pinkpaislee blog)

Iíd like to get one of those clip it ups eventually, too - and I need a better way to store my ribbon. One day when we buy our new house Iíll get a permanent scrap space and then Iíll really go all out hehe

We are trying to decide if we want to finish our basement. If we do, I will have dedicated scrapping space!! We will be hiring someone to do it so we can do whatever we want!! I'm looking at the drawing of our basement right now trying to envision things. It won't even be a room that I will need to re-purpose, so the possibilities are endless. Gosh, I'm so excited!!

I am, sort of, it's just a desk but I need to get stuff cleaned out of it and find a place to put the laptop that I never use so I have the space for my scrap stuff.
