I've been busy finding new ways to organize my scrap room so that I can get back to my number one passion and that's creating memories! When everything is a mess I just waste so much time looking for things. I 'm going to give you a sneak-peek at what I've done and show you some organizing tips AND the bargain of the year that I found at the dollar store!!!!!

I scrap out of a HOOSIER CABINET and LOVE IT!!! I just love antiques and collectibles and when we found this old cabinet I just had to have it!!! Sometimes I just get caught up in the thought that some mother was once rolling dough on the porcelain table top of this old cabinet. It just makes it that more unique to be creating memories from. If I need more room to scrap I just pull the top out and it extends giving me nearly another foot to work on!!! Cool isn't it. I never never want to change a thing about it!!! I even love the chipped paint!!! Am I crazy or what?

It's obvious I love to scrap...... my house is full of little projects I have created!


Brads they are too much fun to work with!


I have to have my paint brushes!!!

And paints!
I love to paint but it's been a long time!!
One day soon I'll have to share that work with you too!

Fibers GALORE!!

Ribbons, glitter and more!

Last weeks deal of the year!! These colorful containers found at the dollar tree!!

And YES.... They were only a dollar!

More ribbons!

I just love these containers!

*Jule spent an evening helping me put the flowers on and wrapping my ribbon*

Flowers... I love flowers on pages!

Did I mention.....I 'm going to give you the chance to win a file..... sound like fun? I've been working on a file that's top secret!!!! All I'm going to say is the first one to guess what it is that I've been working on from a CLUE in my pictures wins that file!! So think hard what could I be creating behind the scenes here that would help you get organized?

HaPpY ScRaPpInG!

How about the cards to wind ribbons on?

Are you creating a flower for decoration that coordinates with the ones on your boxes?

I ABSOLUTELY love your cupboard (and your family's pretty cute too)well I know my next "to do" for my space is a "CREATE" sign

Carrie Schwartz said...

OK..this was WAY too much fun!!!

I don't want it to end!! Because I don't know if I'll be able to come up with anything as fun!!!

So... the winner is guessed it right! My ribbon and fiber holders....I just love em' when I cut my first one I couldn't stop!!! I sent one of my older sons down to the store to get me more paper! Julie and I spent an evening wrapping the ribbon... You wouldn't believe the amount of space I now have...

Deb...let me know what format you need this in...

I'm off to finish my lessons for the class!

Thank you Margaret, Deb, Shae and OHHHH... my five bratz. R U talking about your kids or a collection of Bratz dolls? Well tonight I could have called one of my girls that!!! I didn't say it though...

Wow - I won! I'm glad I guessed right as I could use some of these! I have a Silhouette and mainly use GSD files.
Thanks so much!
Now, will you come to my house and organize my stuff like that? :)

Carrie Schwartz said...

Well Deb,

I'm not sharing the rest of my scrap

I still have so much to get organized!!!! And I don't know what to do with all the x-tra stuff sitting in my KNK box that I pulled out of the hoosier cabinet????
