Sassy Cheryl's Show Me Thursday #59

As usual, I am a little late for the Sassy Cheryl's Show Me Thursday challenge!
I do have a few things to share.


First of all I would like to give a BIG "Thank You" to Naomi over at Scrapping in a Zoo for my totally flippin' adorable card and embellishments!! I was so surprised and tickled to find this treat in my mail box. I can honestly say that I loooooove to get cards in the mail. I am  old school when it comes to that stuff. 
I can't wait to use my velvety buttons and sparkly green ric-rac! You made my day girl!  :)


 Now, onto the nitty gritty...my messy space. I know you love it!!
Since the beginning of the year I have been cleaning, organizing and TRYING to find better storage for my supplies. I think if I come home with just one more sheet of paper my Hubby may move out into the Airstream. See this stack of plastic??? It USED to be the home of my Spellbinder dies. 


 Until I found  this box at Office Depot. It is a hanging folder storage box for CD's but it is perfect for my Spellbinder and QuicKutz dies!!!! See how much space I freed up? I have a whole drawer empty. Not to mention the fact that my die cuts are lots easier to get to.


I put the picture of the die cut in the front pocket and the actual die cut in the back pocket.  I wrote the name of the die on the top so I can easily see what I am looking for. Then they just hang so nicely in the box. I loved it so much that I went and got another one just in case I can't find one when my first one was full. LOL


 I also got this REALLY COOL Stack and Store Caddy from Stampin' Up. I don't know why I didn't get one sooner! It is perfect for holding all my fancy buttons and charms. I will definitely be getting another. 

Anyway, that's what I have been up to this week. I have been cleaning, organizing and searching for my MoJo in this little Happy Space of mine. Trying to clear the clutter from my craft room and my brain. I have a good jump on it so I may be back to share some more organizing ideas soon.

Everyone is in a reorganizing frame of mind. I need to get in it too. I love both the storage for the Diecuts and love the Stamping up storage for buttons. I need to find me a Stamping Up representative. Love the card too. I love getting mail, as long as it's not a bill.

Aw Jeni. thanks for the shout out but I just wanted to give you a little something for the holiday and just all your inspiration. Plus... surprises are always fun!!! You make such CUTE cards.

PS: one of the women I follow had a video on organizing die cuts from Paper Trey/Spellbinders.
Her name is Christina. Her is her video link

I know you have an organization system,... but thought I'd throw another one out to you.

I need someone to organize my entire scrap room.
