I am pretty much done with the organizing and really a day early!!  Sure, there is some more that I can do, but my goal was to get the area cleared out for my workspace and my supplies brought in and organized.  That has been accomplished!  Phase 1 and 2 are done!  Phase 3 will be the garage sale that will come in a few weeks!

You have seen all the pictures I started the project with and now I am going to show you what got accomplished yesterday.  I wish I would have taken pictures of my landing to my basement where all my jewelry supplies were stored, but I forgot until it was too late. 

This first picture actually shows you what was on the landing and then brought upstairs yesterday took me about 90 minutes to go up and down 1.5 flights of stairs to get it there.

This next picture shows how I organized it all onto my shelves...

  My desk....(still need to get some shelves on the wall to display what I make!)

Last, a look inside my supplies and organzing....I love old keys, buttons, vintage trinkets, and vintage rick rack....

Mission Accomplished!!  Hope you enjoyed this organizing adventure!!

I'm almost done!!

The craft closet renew started back on March 15.    That means my bedroom, bathroom, and closet have been a mess for over a month now!!

Based on a consignment sale, Easter, spring break, and a birthday as well as a visit from mom and dad, the project became delayed...

I am happy to report....IT IS ALMOST DONE!

Yesterday, I got my bedroom and bathroom back and the organizing is about 80% done...a little more arranging needs to take place, but it is getting closer.  Today, I will move in my beading supplies and clear out another whole area doing's finally all coming together...some pictures below will take you were I started and to where I am now!

Day 1....The front of this picture where you see the dresser and metal shelf, that is where the work area is in the following pictures!

Many Days later....

Finally....Getting closer!!

Now in order to get it all is my garage sale picture....
But it has gotten much bigger!

I have many more pictures of empty shelves and other room changes....but finished project
pictures hopefully by the end of the week!!

I can't wait!!

5 Workouts Today!

I don't normally go to the gym...ok I never go to the gym but that is a different blog for a different day!  :)

However, today, I think I will get at least 5 workouts in for the stairs I will be running.  It's back to organizing!

Two out of these three shelves will hopefully be empty in the next few hours.  Everything on them, will be in a garage sale in the next couple of weeks.  This is only a portion of the longaberger I seem to be hoarding!  There are pottery and baskets on these shelves and about 15 tubs in the garage that I will unload...been selling over 15 years and I have quite the samples built up! It needs to go from upstairs to downstairs. 

These 2 shelves will then holding my beading supplies and tools.  I probably have enough to fill just one shelf, so I have other craft supplies that may be organized here on the other side of the room
that you are not seeing in this picture.

The next picture is where I am going to set up my work area once everything is moved around.  My "desk" is in those boxes leaning up against wall.

The biggest reason I can get back to organizing and moving stuff all around is BECAUSE we have 1 less car in the garage now.  We have a 4 car garage and had 4 cars in it....the truck we sold this weekend, so now I can get stuff out of this room, down into the garage...I have space...

So, these are my "before" pictures...more to come!  What are you organizing today?
