My scrap room is back in shape

Yes it's been a long few days living with that mess in there but yesterday on that rainy cold day Kevin finally got my shelves back up. I did promise I would keep my glass jars on my desk and not put so much weight on there again. That might have contributed to the fall.

Speaking of glass jars..........yes I did buy a few more............but what a mess cleaning that up! All those little slivers and shards of glass mixed in with the flowers and brads.........I did get a few cuts out of it. But now they are lined up nicely on my desk and I won't have to worry about them falling off any more.

My shelves turned out nice too and I found some neat organizing tools. The round basket on the left hand corner of my table I put some styrofoam in and then arranged all my jars of stickles in there upside down. I also punched out all the sizes of Fiskars squeeze punches I have and glued them along the top shelf so I would know what shapes and sizes I had.
So everything is in it's place but not sure how much scrapping I will get done this week since Kevin is on vacation. We hope to do some fishing, some landscaping, take a few long drives in the country (with the poles in the trunk just in case) and hopefully at the end of the week get our precious little granddaughter Allayah to come up and spend some time with us. The good thing is we can just do what we want when we want and sometimes the best times are had when you don't have it all planned.

Well said! Just do whatever strikes you at the time. We all get too few of those times. We went fishing last night, but all I caught was a snapping turtle. (He was not happy, nor I)

Feels good when everything is in place, doesn't it! Now you can scrap!

It's good you've gotten order from the caos again. I just had a thought, now that it's too late! But for future use, you could have used a magnet to pick up what was metal. Maybe you wouldn't have had so much glass to go through.
Enjoy your new system.
