Since I haven't made a card since Sunday my "workspace" (aka my kitchen counter) is cleared off and not very exciting. I do however have a new workspace that I have been using since Monday night; my sofa and coffee table.
I figure since I'm off this week (our corporate office shuts down for the holidays) why wait until January to attack the office and craftroom. Well, I finished the office Monday and have been attacking the craftroom with some amazing aggression. I have shown no mercy and tossed out things that have not fallen into the "Have I used or needed this in the last six months" category. Of course this category excludes seasonal items and all papers, inks, embellishments, ribbons, so on and so on.
So now I've begun the task of reclaiming space. Before I can reorganize, I need to free-up what space I do have and one way I'm doing that is by removing the rubber stamps from their wood backing. I'm only doing this to my SU sets as they are the largest space hog. I've been watching my favorite movies while I sit and break the sets apart. (I have purchased some thin cling backing that I will put onto the SU stamps. But that will probably happen only as I need/use them.)
The previous pictures are of the sets earmark for todays separation and the sets already separated. the following pics are of a container of wood blocks that will be taken to the curb tomorrow (I've already tossed one box of equal size) and the before and after of the first bookcase that has been reclaimed. :) However, this bookcase will follow the box of wood blocks to the curb because its warped.
It's such a great feeling to get in there and actually make progress on that nightmare. If I'm lucky, next Wednesday I'll have my drafting table back up (it's folded against the wall right now) and be able to share pictures my actual craftroom. Here's hoping that next weeks workspace is cluttered with multiple projects. :)
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Thanks for stopping in. :)
