purging & a giveaway



that's just a small part of my studio (i've actually redone my other expedit with the color sort so it looks similar to this one.) maybe after this purge i'll take some new photos as the set up has changed a bit. sam (my little guy) has his craft area in my studio now. it's fun to have him with me while i'm on the computer and crafting.

***edited to add: the ikea boxes are called kassett.

anyhow, the deal is i need to purge. my goal is to reduce by about half so i can move out of this room and into sam's smaller room. (his room is near his brother's - when he was a little guy we thought he'd like that better.) then sam can have this room (including one of my expedits) - this will give him more room for his toys and he'll keep his craft area too!

so here comes the giveaway. this will force me to get started. i have nothing to show you, but i promise it will be good stuff. the plan is to fill (completely) a flat rate mailer with goodies for one lucky person. all you have to do is click the follow this blog link on the sidebar to the left. your pretty blogger picture will appear under the widget then!

i'll pull a name from my followers next thursday, january 15th. so get clicking!

Purging is good for the soul :) Did those storage boxes come from Ikea too? My scrap space is now in the living room so I am trying to get a cleaner look on my Expedit

I just put my name among your followers. I like all the stuff you come up with.
My entire craft room is by IKEA, 10 minutes down the road from where we live. It's the perfect store for storage solutions.

I really need to reorganize and purge some items, too. But if I do, I'm afraid it will only make room for new stuff! Good luck on your project - I really wish I had your orgainizational skills!

Did you prime and then use latex paint to paint the Expedit bookcase? I've had my eye on that bookcase for a couple of years...and we will *finally* be getting an IKEA...in 2113, that is! *lol*

Thank you for sharing your purging experience and for sharing your excess goodies with us, too!
