Card making, home decorating and an occasional random musing.

Happy New Year!

One thing it seems crafty people like nearly as much as crafting itself is how to organize their crafting supplies. I'm no different. Sometimes I'll waste an entire afternoon getting ready to make cards or sew something up.

So today, along with apparently half of the population of the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area, I trundled to IKEA. I got there within the first hour of the store opening, and I got the last one of the particular EXPEDIT shelving unit I wanted! It was like I won an eBay auction! Whew. (I have no affiliation with IKEA).

Here's what it looked like when I opened the two boxes. I wondered if this would be easy to put together, or a disaster.

I managed to put the whole thing together myself, except for getting DH to help align one panel. The directions even had these funny cartoons that showed you should have two people to do the work, not just one.

The finished product gives a fun, storage vibe. Hopefully it keeps me more organized in 2011! Or at least makes more space for the additional crafting supplies I'm sure I'll accumulate.

Of course, I didn't take a picture of the closet that's half torn apart while reorganizing...

Happy New Year!



  1. I need one of those. Of course I would also need a place to put it! Glad someone is getting organized!

  2. Very nice! I followed you over from the Stampin' Connection thread. I see you live in St. Paul! I live in Park Rapids, MN what a small world!!

  3. So lucky, so jealous! :) Happy for ya - what fun!! I've never thought about that there might be other people out there like myself (organizing my STUFF) lol!

  4. What would we do without IKEA?! It looks great!

  5. It looks good... now lets see the rest of your stamp room...!?
