I've been working on organizing my craft area/room...again. I've attempted this several times before, but haven't ever found a 'system' that has worked for me. I decided I'd try again this weekend. Partially due to the FlyLady, and partially because it's cluttered nature was hindering any attempt of progress. Each day I don't crop means I'm one more day behind. However, when I get things done, I can begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
So, I found a craft cart online, and then made a trip to Target to pick it up. I really haven't wanted to spend any more money on the organization, but figured out that my 'free' way of organizing wasn't working at all. I was very excited to get started with the organization. So much so that I've labeled each drawer, and certain 'topics' are ready to crop - paper and all! How exciting for me! The drawers hold 12x12 paper perfectly. I'll post a pic soon, to show you want I'm talking about, because I know this is about as clear as mud.
Since organizing, I've been able to find my table top once again, which has inspired me to get moving! I've completed two pages since Saturday. If you know anything about my cropping, this is a record pace! The pages aren't anything fancy at all, but you know what? They're done, and that's what matters to me at this point.
My cropping style has changed drastically since making my first scrapbook, and I actually prefer the old better. It's more elaborate, while at this point I feel like I'm just slapping pictures on colored paper. Oh wait, maybe it feels that way, because that's what I'm actually doing! I'm ashamed to admit that though. Maybe I can tap into the inner craftiness some day...but for now, a little progress is better than none at all.
