Mission: Impossible Organization

Oh My Gosh!! I seriously feel like it was just yesterday when My Scraproom was so nice and clean and I had just gone through a Major Organizational Challenge! Yet.. the mess has returned.. and for my disbelieve it's worse than ever. The thing is that the stuff I already had organized last year is still organized, yet I bought so many other scrapbooking supplies, that I slacked in putting them away in their correct spaces. Thankfully, I have joined a "Makeover/Organization ScrapArea" Challenge on that will help once again get through this mess. Today I was pretty proud of getting a lot of my "Desk Cleanup" done! Still have a lot more to do though.. it's just the first of the month! Here is the before/in progress picture (embarassing):

<--- This is a mess! But like I said before, thankfully a lot of the "old" stuff is still organized, i.e. my chipboard in the bins above, my ribbon (just needed to take out all the empty spools), my markers, etc. etc. But then I have all the additional embellishments, flowers, machines, and other items that are essential to having at my reach! So that's where the problem began. I'm pretty happy with the outcome of just one day of organizing... but I see a long road ahead of me. Hopefully it will as easy as last time, with the help of a wonderful hostess and ladies that get me through this mess on

Well and here is the after:

Not bad huh? Yet, I'm hoping to go to the store tomorrow and purchase another Making Memories Embellishment Center (the white large shelf that pretty much is holding everything). Not sure though... normally they are $89.99 here but I found a place that will have only 3 available tomorrow for purchase at $29.99 (never ever seen it that cheap before) so I'm hoping that it's meant to be and I'm able to get the second shelf! Wish me luck with that one. I don't think I did too much of a shabby job. Like I said.. it's barely the beginning. But to be able to clean, make dinner, and still have time to update my blog and scrap 2 pages... I'm pretty good, don't you think? Anyways, keep checking back, I will be posting my progress as time passes.
