Clean and Organized!

I was on vacation for almost 10 days! The whole family went to Baguio, but so sad typhoon Mina tagged along with us. It was so hard to move around the city because of the heavy fog and cold rain. The only exciting thing about this trip was the cold weather where my kids just loved it! The rest of the days were spent at home... I had the chance to clean up!

Can you imagine how much stuff I was able to accumulate all these time? My scrapbook stash were piling up together with Lorenzo's toys. These are the mess I will love forever, hahaha!

My papers are packed according to brand and organized alphabetically in these plastic containers. I bought these green plastic baskets at P35 each in a Novo store here in our little town. I separated all my paints and liquid mediums, inks and ink pads, stamps and embelishments in these baskets. Then, I re-organized my plastic drawer... where the buttom case were all punchers, followed by a whole container of chipboards and Thickers, metal embelishements, my Prima flowers and flower case, and on the top part were my ribbon collection.

Here's my working table or my little office at home every Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays only, hahaha! This corner of my house is my little haven where I can just create and scrap til I drop!

The pushing and pulling around the house was finally over! It took me about 3 days to have everything cleaned up and organized. I just wish this will last long enough before another major cleaning comes. I got a small house and I don't have extra hands to help me around, that's why I always clean before the kids bring tons of mess. Oh one more reason why I did clean was the anticipation of the Holiday season, christmas tree time is coming and Lorenzo will soon nag me about it. Thanks too to my scrappy sister Liezl, for lending me this culprit magazine on organizing creative spaces. After browsing a few pages of it, my nerves were uncontrollable until now.

Have to go now... TFL as always!
