Well I finally got everything cleaned and organized in my craft room since DH painted it. Iím still debating bringing my other table/desk up, but for now Iím content. Iím really happy with everything and I think it is much more user friendly! So hopefully it will stay organized this time. Since I spent long enough on it, here are more pics than you could ever imagine or really want to see of my hard work (I cut a lot out, too, hehe) The green we painted is a really relaxing color - I love it! It just didnít photograph very well/the right shade. I need to figure out how to use my camera lol.

Ribbon/cuttlebug/cart/patterned paper corner... This is probably my fav corner since it looks how I want everything to look color wise and such.

Paper is organized by theme: Boy, Christmas, Halloween, Seasons on the left and on the right blues, browns, greens, brights, oranges/yellows, reds, black and white, pink and purples, paper stacks, and then the bottom drawer has wood painting stuff in it. The drawers on the left have ink pads, Alphas (stickers, chipboard, etc), and manuals.

Details - Ribbon and my new way of storing cartridges for the time being - I like it a lot better already than having them lined up at the top of the desk...

A close up of the tin I decorated to store my cuttlebug folders in...

My scrap desk/area - the dark colored wood looks much nicer with the green than the old color (yellow) but I still wouldnít mind getting my nice flat table for functionality and I think it would look nicer. But, the hutch is kind of nice!

You canít really see but the slots on the right above my cricut hold my scrap binder (ideas and random bits) and my Stamp binder (so I know what sets I have), 8.5x11 cardstock, embossing powders, eyelets and setter, markers, small paper trimmer, random tools, etc.
The 3 baskets above the main area hold my adhesive, glue sticks, etc - random tools and corner rounder - and then coloring supplies.

On top of the hutch is a basket for cricut miscuts and then the two jars hold my itty bitty paper scraps and punches...

A close-up of the tags I made..

Then on the right is my little xyron and my baby food jar embellishment holders - flowers, buttons, crystals, brads, big eyelets, etc.

Cardstock organized by color, more tools, glitter, blocks, etc on top then my cropper hopper and Xyron 900

The cropper hopper is organized by Magazines and books, extra mats, stencils and shape cutters, wheels and handles, ink spots, then the rest of the drawers have random papers and such - mainly printing papers.

Then the wall by the door has my stamps and the plastic cart. The bride is from ďpin the tail on the brideĒ at my bridal shower where everyone signed it.... Still need to get that framed, oops!

The green box holds my clear and unmounted stamp sets.

My scrap cart thing now holds loose stamps in the first drawer and more embellishments in the 2nd...

Below that is more patterned paper organized by theme - Birthday, fall/thanksgiving, holidays, and baby

The removable drawer totes hold all my wedding embellishments and papers and then everything to scrap our vacation from last winter (Iím really behind!!). The last one holds completed pages.

And the last corner...
Tucked away in the back is stuff Iím sending to a certain Canadian and then the book case is organized by embellishments grouped by theme on the top shelf, notebooks, precut paper and already cut and folded cards and envelopes on the next, then photos, another box of embellishments I couldnít fit above, and vellum... then random goodies and store bought cards, xyron refills and cheeta runners, and then the bottom is misc craft goodies

And finally my shelf with decorative scissors and more embellishments..

Not pictured is the closet!! We didnít paint it but I did organize it. In there is shipping stuff, office supplies, albums, painting stuff, random craft stuff, and itty bitty fluff!

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my adorable siggy! ~*~ Blog ~*~bfp Chart

Thanks Ladies!! You can come play anytime

The best part about everything is that it was, for the most part, pretty cheap to do. Iíve bought all the stuff in there over time so it wasnít like I had to go out and buy a bunch of stuff and a lot of other items I had sitting in my basement.

2 of the white cubes were on sale for 40% off last summer then the other 3 I got at Michaelsí Black Friday sale for less than $15 each, the cropper hopper DH bought me, the wire paper holder I bought on sale for $13 at target - it was a 6 cube storage rack and I just used the extra cube parts and wired them in to make shelves.. The Ribbon holder is really an old DVD rack we had in our basement that I drilled holes in, hehe. The glass containers were left over from our wedding candy buffet and the baby food jars and organizer were sitting in the basement, too. The only new items I bought for the ďremodelĒ were the paint and white & pink baskets which I used a coupon on and got for $12. The rest of the stuff I already had, and even then I got most of it on sale!

Iíd love to do a whole wall of the white cubes but last time I was at Michaels they only had 2 in stock, and they werenít on sale so who knows what they are doing with them.

I'm just glad its finally done and hopefully I can keep it organized. I didn't realize how much stuff I had so I'm on a spending break for a while. Right now I"m trying to get my v-day cards done then hopefully I can get some scrapping done this weekend!!

Carrie your scraproom is AWESOME!!! I am so jealous. I am hoping in the next couple of months I can re-do our fourth bedroom into an office/scraproom. DH has applied for a work at home job and we are crossing our fingers that he gets it so we have an excuse to paint and organize that room. Right now I am working on a fold up card table in my basement so I can watch t.v while I scrap. Hopefully we will have enough money to buy a t.v for the new scraproom.
