spring cleaning, organizing, purging...

Has that mood hit you yet? I'm all about it right now. It seems like every year I get more comfortable with just getting rid of STUFF. Stuff I've collected and saved over the years, papers, cute little chotchkes (sp?), just all kinds of stuff... I'm sorting and organizing and cleaning (REALLY cleaning!) and best of all making tons of donations to whoever wants to take it on. :)

So I bought four Scraponizers from my LSS, Scrapbook Mania, and am very happy with them. I stored all the little bits and items and embellies that I have a lot of and my inks and chalks and blooms and glitters and chipboard... aaahhhhhhhhhhhhh. Feels good.

So, are you in that mood yet? Getting there? Been there?

Oh gosh - me too!! Must be spring, eh? I spend yesterday going through all my PP - I had to face the fact that I am not realstically going to scrap old stuff that is no longer my tastes or some items I have been given. I now have a good sized bin - some of it will be used to make cards for the store, and i have 2 sisters that would love to go through it, as well as my little girl wants to start SBing beside me - more than happy to let her have at it!

Hi Maelynn! I was sorting through my favorites and came across your blog & thought I'd pop in and say HELLO!

Ooooh, I LOVE how your storing your embellies. I love to organize and am getting a scrap room makeover right now so there's a LOT of purging in order. LOL I store my embellies by color in those clear DMC floss containers. I like how you have yours in the magazine holder. Great job altering that, btw. :) Oh, I linked to your site from the SB Dimensions site/thread. ;)
