A Hidden Gem

Don't you just love when you find a new way to use something? I bought this picture organizer from Tuesday Morning. It was a good price and I liked the color.

Guess what else? It turns it is the perfect size for my Xyron Design Runner. I just removed the Velcro dividers and I placed the entire machine in the case. It fits perfectly. I actually put one of the dividers back in the case vertically, to create a little pouch for my disks.

So if you have a design runner you should definitely consider this as an option for a case. I know at AC Moore they sell a similar case under the Stow and Go name. They are 50% off this week.

Talking Dirty

I am so tired of organizing my scraproom. It has been this ongoing neverending battle to conquer my paper. I have spent every night for the past two weeks, cleaning...and there is no end in sight. Just when I think I have everything put away I find something else. This is a clear indication that I have too much stuff.

My husband asked me why I keep buying organizational products when I am such a slob. Normally, I would be very upset by that comment, but I cannot dispute the truth. I am not a neat person. Nevertheless, I need to make an attempt to get my stuff in order. I am tired of searching multiple rooms just to find some adhesive.

Speaking of organizational products I just ordered this from Joann's. I thought it would work nicely on the tension rod I have suspended in my craft room. I already have the clear pouches from HSN hanging up there and I thought the drawers would work well. I like having everything at my fingertips.

Here are some truly awful before pictures of my room. It is looking better than this now, but this will give you a reference of what I am working with.
