Let’s Get Organized

Hello there! How was your weekend? Mine was wonderful! My 8 year old son was baptized. I had some family come up for the event and a lot of friends came. It was very nice! My mom, brother and Grandpa were able to come, which was so nice to see them again!! They left yesterday after church, but we got to spend time with them on Saturday. I hope we can visit with them again soon!:)

I have a lot to do this week. The organizing has been going slow. I think it’s because I’m working on two rooms at the same time as well as other sewing and crafting projects and it’s all stressing me out. I’m going to pick one room for the week and stick with it. Next week I’ll finish up the other room.

This is my plan for the week: Craft Room

Monday – DO THE LAUNDRY!! (Since we had family in town over the weekend I didn’t get a chance to do the laundry. *SIGH*) Organize scrapbook paper. (I know I was supposed to do this last week. I actually did do some of it, but need to finish the single sheets.)

Tuesday – Organize sewing and Computer desk. Make an area for patterns, sewing projects in process, etc

Wednesday – Organize shelves above sewing desk. Find a place for extra craft area supplies without a home.

Thursday – Fix up kids’ toys and wire shelves.

Friday – Finish up organizing shelves. Try to keep things in categories; scrapbooking supplies, sewing supplies, electrical cords for charging phone, computer,etc. I want to start organizing my fabric better too. I have been saving cardboard pieces from small boxes to use as bolts, kind of like at a fabric store, I would wrap the fabric around the cardboard. If I have time I’ll start this process.

I have high hopes to get my craft room all finished up this week. The kids’ toys are a bigger presence than I had originally planned, but at least they’ll be close by when I’m working on my projects. I’ll be able to keep a closer eye on them.

I’m struggling with the sewing/computer desk. When I sew I use my WHOLE desk. I have stuff EVERYWHERE! I don’t know about you, but I just spread out. I can’t just use half of the desk for some reason. So, I’m going to try to divy up the space evenly and organize my supplies better so I don’t have to use the whole desk for sewing or computer usage. My silhouette is on the computer desk so that’s taking up some extra room I hadn’t planned on. I think that’s what’s throwing me off.

I’ll get it figured out this week, hopefully so I can move onto the bathroom next week:) I know one thing for sure, my husband will be so happy to have all my crafty stuff out of my old craft area corner.


This is what it looks like right now. Kind of a big pile of whatever was left under the desk and needing to be organized better. I WILL get to that this week!! Mark has been asking me to do it ever since we moved my desk into the room so I’m finally giving in to his pleadings. I think he goes crazy when I try to organize big areas. He doesn’t do well with a mess. He can’t understand how I have to make a bigger mess before I get it all organized. does any man understand that concept? It would surprise me if someone did!:)

Good luck with your organizing this week! Along with this room I have 2 sewing projects I’m working on and need to finish this week as well as a photo shoot I did a couple weeks ago. I’m so behind! UGH!! Wish me luck:)

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Let’s get physical! I’m just going to have to say that every time you say, “Let’s get organized!” Have to pay homage to So I Married an Axe Murderer. I’m so excited to see how your craft room turns out. And no, men don’t understand the concept of making a bigger mess in order to organize. They don’t understand a lot of things…

  2. When I was writing the title I actually thought about using physical instead of organized!:) hehe. I will probably think that every time I write this post up now.
