The moment of horror

2 weeks ago when I was organizing my scraproom it was about oh hour 8 of continuous organizing I had a moment.

I stood in the middle of my scraproom and just look around thinking it's not going to fit. Where am I going to put everything. I think I almost had a panic attack.
I was ready to sit on the floor and start rocking back and forth..I am serious it was that bad. Then....yes then...I took a deep breath and I got over was still in the back of my mind though but I pushed on and made progress.

When I was working on Jackie's nook. I told her about my moment. I said she would have that moment too. Accept I had it for her. Then she had it..oh not a good feeling. At this point we both just laid on the floor from exhaustion and just the OMG factor of it all. Jackie was laying under one of the 8ft long folding tables that house all the stuff we were trying to put into her nook. But after some vision and worked out.

I am so frustrated at this point with the room. There isn't much left to do, there really isn't. My problem before was I had no idea where to store certain embellishments now I have a place thanks to the punch storage.

It will be so worth it once it is all done. It is just getting to that point. I dislike going in there, I am so frustrated that I can't scrap when I want to. (yes my room is scrapable but I would like it finished before I start to make a mess in there). I have two projects that need to be completed in the next couple weeks. I need to think of stuff for Christmas. And of course I have the urge to scrap when it is impossible for me to do so.

I have been invited to a house crop the last Sunday in November but again don't have to take a lot of stuff and hopefully I will have something put together I can just take that and be okay with it. We really won't end up scrapbooking much anyway because we will just be chatting away.

I have moments like this all the time ... my scrappy stuff is in my bedroom and everything is just a mess. I need better storage and a room to store it in. I get so aggravated at times too that i just don't scrap.
You are almost done, the hard part is over ... keep on going and then get scrappin'. I love to see your work ... you are so creative with new techniques ... you are a great inspiration.

Hey, just hang in there. Rome wasn't built in a day and neither will your scrapbook room. When things just don't look like they will fit, add a shelf to the wall. Trust me, I live by this motto. What's more important, pretty things hanging in your scrapbook space or scrapbook stuff fitting in your scrapbook space. Just take a look at my previous space on my blog and you will see exactly what I mean. I had 7 years of stuff along with computer junk and my own books crammed into a 10x12 building along with 3 tables. It works, I promise. Have fun!!!! Audrey
