Getting Organized & Catching Up POTD

What a long weekend! I decided to take on the much-needed task of reorganizing my scraproom. I purchased these storage cubes at Target & I really like them. They hold all my Cropper Hopper Vertical Paper Holders perfectly. Yep, I'm a paper addict :) I have 24 paper holders displayed in these cubes & all of them are filled except for one, which is for this year's Scrap Goods kits. The two cubes at the bottom with doors hold my magazines & idea books. The one with 4 drawers holds pictures & my red Sizzix dies. I also have 2 more cubes on my desk which hold more pictures, alphabets by the sheet & quotes:
I did something today that I never thought I would do......I emptied out my Scrap Rack & I'm planning on selling it (if you're interested in buying it, just email me). It was something I've been debating doing for a long time now. Don't get me wrong.....I really love the Scrap Rack. But for me, it was just taking up too much space on my desk area. So now everything that was in my Scrap Rack is now in Iris carts. I just hope I don't end up regretting it. It also gave me the chance to do a LOT of purging & I filled 2 boxes to send to my sister.

Anyway, those are my POTD for today. I ended up getting behind on the POTD since I've been so busy working on my room, but I did take pictures everyday.....here is the one from yesterday.....a gorgeous sunset:









Jim & I went out to dinner with some friends as I needed to take a break from working on my room & the sun was just starting to set on the way to the restaurant, so I grabbed my DRebel :)

The picture for Saturday is of the snow we got Friday night. We only got about an inch, but it was so pretty. I didn't get a chance to go out to take any good pics, so I took this one of our dog prints on the deck :)




Once I finally get my room completely done, I'll take some more pics, but that may be a few days still. Tomorrow afternoon, Jim & I are going to the Detroit Auto Show with some friends & I'm really looking forward to it! I can't wait to see the Dodge Challenger Concept car! I want one of those so bad that I've even been having dreams about it! LOL I used to own a Challenger years ago & wish I still had it.....I loved that car! But if everything goes as planned, by the time they come out, my lease will be up on my Durango & I WILL get me a Challenger. I can't wait! :)

That's it for now.....off to work on my room some more.
