The Quest continues

For ORGANIZATION...why does that always seem like a dirty word..
Well I spent the better part of today in my scraproom organizing. I took a lot of stuff out of the room and had it in the rec room while I was going thru stuff.

So I got this cubby hole thing from Zellers and it was so reduced it was awesome..only $21..and it was easy to assemble and it is sturdy..

I got the bins from Dollarama..and just started filling them up with stuff..I am considering getting a second unit..haven't decided 100% yet though.

So I have gotten my scraps all together as well..bought an expanding file folder and sorted them by colour and such..the thing weighs a tonne (metric tonne too)..but they are contained and I really need to start making cards. I purged them too and kept pieces only 3 x 3 and bigger.

Well I will keep it up..I hope to have it done by Saturday cause I have the weekend to myself looking forward to it..

Scrapbooking Organization!!

Almost seems like a bad word doesn't it...

Anyway..I am not even going to discuss the state of my room right now..or my stuff in general.

I need magic fairies to come in and just take over..not just my scrap room but the whole house.

This is when my pony tail comes in handy I can cross my arms and flip it around and blink..remind you of anything..I DREAM OF JEANNIE..ahh I love that show..
I wish I had her powers..I would use it all for good..I swear.


I found this great blog and the woman is doing a scrapbook organization challenge..great ideas on's a 29 or 28 week thing..but great site..I have been on there for 3 days now..and I think I am actually motivated. She just has a different take on things that I have heard of in the past..anyway..

Just sharing the knowledge.

My Love Affair with a Label Maker

Well anyway. I will post my progress...and any points that I think is worthy..

Start at the first post..don't look at anything else. Go to the first post and read from there. Trust me it make more sense when you see her theory.
