well, it has been a productive '5 day weekend'...ha!

Today is the last day of my '5 day weekend', cant say it was planned that way.  I ended up taking today off to await the dishwasher repair man.   Have I mentioned we've been without a dishwasher...and I've been having to hand wash my dishes.  I know, such a 'first world' problem...but gotta say, hand washing is pretty high on my list of really dislike doing.   In my mind, a handwash dish/utensil/cup can never be as clean and sanitary as machine washed..and it does a rough number on my delicate hands.  (But Leisa my pedicurist and friend told me to rub a bit of olive oil on my fingers after each session at the sink)

But I wanted to show off my scraproom reorganization project...a li'l more organized, can't say I've made any more room for more stuff...but I can find what I have!!! ha!!

this is ribbon area before...those open bowls...not good
 This is after, used the taller canning jars to hold ribbon by color...still have some by collection and added more rings of some American Crafts to the wall.  I never take things out of packaging cuz I am obsessed with keeping collections together.   So, this was a bit hard for me...but I did keep some collections together in th bins on the 2nd shelf...one bin is Stampin Up and the other is Websters Pages...and the large bin (next to the preschool pic of C)  is a combo of collections.
 Then I knew buttons would have to be next...here is before.

Here is after...Yesterday morning I went to World Market while  Nyki went to Winco...got spice-y...
of course could not get rid of those plastic 'purses'....

 all my blooms and buttons (kept in collections) in the larger jars (bottom 2 shelves of rack)..and even found a use for the hotel room service ketchup bottles I've been collecting.
 and a better view of the spice rack and cute li'l jars....still kept in collections...

Other shelves were reorganized and cleaned and had stuff moved around...but these are the most changed.

now, I've gotta work on my desk...and paper kits...and.....stamps (just don't want to do the binders, I really need to see to use)

have ya'll seen the youtube videos by Lindababyus      love her, if you watch the video I linked, at 11:45 she talks about 'washi crack'...cannot agree more.. I LOVE how she says 'But I'm shoppin', I'm HAPPY and I love it"!!!    ha!!!
