Scrap Room Organization, Before and After

A while ago, I posted photos about how I helped my friend Danielle organize her scrap room and some of her photos. She finished the photos on her own after I left that day. See her photo organization post here.

Danielle has a great set-up in her basement with two tables, and lots of great plastic containers. Over time, as she bought new scrap products and ordered new photos, things were tossed onto the tables and not put away. Having two little ones made it difficult for her to keep up with the organizing.

I've NEVER done that before. Never, ever. My scrap table is always 100% neat.

(Bwaaa haa haaa! Yeah right! You should see my scrap table right now.) All of us crafters have done this at one time or another.

We took some time to put away the paper and sort all of her doo-dads. Like I said, Danielle had these great storage containers already.

Look at all of the pretty buttons! These containers are inexpensive, and perfect for the little items.

And here are the after photos...

Now Danielle can work on her scrapbooking and card making easier. I need to work on my own scrapbook table before my upcoming weekend scrapbook retreat!

Does anyone need to work on their craft area?

Oh good lord! I can't even believe I allowed you to post that mess!!!!!!! Thankfully, even after a retreat, I proudly replaced all I packed back in the correct spots :)

I swear, scrap rooms are the HARDEST to keep tidy! Mine looks like this (the before version) 24/7, I swear! I swear, I get it all picked up and just when I'm feeling all proud of myself, bam, it's messy again! This room looks great! Now she can scrap in peace!

My craft area is a disaster...hoping to get it organized after the holidays.
Thanks for the inspiration!

I seriously needed to read this! I moved into our house about six months ago and have one extra bedroom that needs to be organized with my scrapbook stuff. Thanks for the inspiration.

I so know what you mean about the craft area being a mess! I just made my husband help me put up shelves on the wall last night! He was looking at me like I lost my mind - I know he was thinking that I have a whole room for crafting and I still don't have enough space for everything! Thanks for stopping by.
