I Come Clean

As I promised, I sucked it up and took pictures of the unorganized work in process side of the craft cellar. I hope to one day post the same nice organized pictures of this side of the room as the first ones that I let you all see.

Here is the table that holds my sewing machine and serger. Eventually when everything has a home and it is in that home this table will be another crafting surface for creative fun.

This is the inside of the IOPC unit. It looks completely full of stamp sets but they are not pushed all the way back so I am sure that I could fit many more inside this cabinet.

This shot is of the floor area to show that no space is wasted.

This picture was shot with my back against the X-mas tree box toward the furnace (the furnace marks the halfway point in the basement). If you picture an upside down U, the right side and part of the bottom were the nice organized shots. These shots are the left side of the very messy and unorganized side of the craft cellar.

This was shot from the side of my desk back toward the back wall. The orderly side is to the right, the chaotic side is to the left (like you couldn't tell).


These wooden shelves are definitely a work in progress. They were filled with my brother's stuff. Slowly but surely I have been making my way to claiming them as mine. The top shelf has leftover parts from when he did the duct work for the furnance. The large box on the shelf below that is filled with motorcycle magazines and other boy stuff. I have cleaned off a different area and will begin moving things to their new home. The ultimate goal, to have complete "control" of that shelving unit for crafty goodness.

This shot is exactly opposite of the nice orderly white cube area. The brown cabinet behind the rocking chair goes all the way to the floor and is filled with stamp sets. Some day I will clean off that rocker and be able to sit in it.

This shot is to show that I stack things to the ceiling/furnance cold air return. No space will go unused when I am done with the organization.

This is the other, not so clean and tidy side of my desk. The large brown box is stuff leftover from my working from home stint in July. I need to go through that box and see what should be tossed, what should go back to the office and what stays at home.
