Amaze Me Monday: How I Spent My Sunday Morning ....

I had had enough.  I couldn't walk.  I could not find things.  The time had come to clean up this mess.  It took me about three hours, but it was time well spent.  It isn't picture perfect, but this room is now organized, and I am ready to create.  Yay!

Before:










After:



Well, I didn't get to my computer area.  
I was concentrating on crafts and photography.





I think that the best thing I did yesterday was to use old suitcases and filled them with what I needed for full projects.  For instance, I am going to begin sewing cloth diapers and cloth/washable menstrual pads.  I have a large suitcase full of flannel and other stuff.  I used baskets in a similar way.  I am determined to use what I have on hand before I venture into a fabric store ... unless I go ahead and buy more quilt batting so I can finish some blankets that I have already started.  Watch for my Esty Store soon!

Oh, as a bonus, I found these cool old coin wrappers that I thought you would enjoy:

Hi Great job on clean up and re-organizing, I'm trying to do the same and I'm still not finished. Have a great week! Hugs Marilou

WOW, you did a lot of organizing -- good for you. I wish I had the gumption to do the same. ;)
I like your quilt hanging above the desk, very pretty.
Best,
Gloria

You were a busy bee, as usual! My daughters old bedroom needs to be organized. Right now I've got furniture stored in there and the door hasn't been opened in a month. LOL Hubby bought paint and that will be a start. :)

Common Cents, welcome and thank you!

Hi Marilou, that is a big job, that is for sure. Probably the hardest room of all, because there are so many "categories". Thanks, and best of luck on your project.

Hi Gloria, all I can say is that I have a lot of things to make, and I couldn't find anything. My friend Patty made us that quilt as our wedding gift. It is so cheerful, I love it too.

Hi Lisa, I wish I had a room inside just for that ... a goat room, like my Grandma used to call hers. Our tree is still up and in the dining room (the ornaments are off though). I wish I could just stick it into a spare room instead of having to clean the garage in the snow to make a path. That will probably be the next project. Well, at least you guys have paint bought!

Thanks, Everybody. Have a wonderful week,

Kathy
