When in Doubt - Reorganize...

It's my absolute favorite kind of weekend! Michael and I both have projects going - he is finishing up with painting the entryway, I am scrapping, the windows are open and the music is on!

This file cabinet with the blue towel on it is where I have been keeping my paints. As you can see, it is now needed for springtime bird-watching activities...
so I moved the paints off of the file cabinet, looked at my super-messy scrap-desk, and decided it was time to reorganize. I took EVERYTHING off of the desk, (and believe me there was a lot of stuff piled up on there), and started over. I moved the things that I don't use that often, and reorganized my paints and inks, and here is the result...
I feel so much better! I bought this vintage orange pan at the thrift store awhile ago, and it works perfect for storing my paints...
This kawaii tray was also a thrift-store find...

I love my industrial tape dispenser that holds my fave gaffer tapes! (it was part of my project Catwalk prize!)

Now I feel all organized and ready to take on the day! I will be back later with projects to share. Have a great Saturday my scrappy friends!

OMG Michelle!! I LOVE that photo of your furbabies!! Way too cute - and yeah, I would have moved my stuff too! Desk is super tidy - I think I need you here to organise ME! I sooooooooooooo want your industrial sticky tape dispenser - how cool is THAT! I'll have to keep and eye out for something like that! Great idea!
