You may remember my post about being a craft supply hoarder. Since I wrote that post last March, I have been working on changing our back porch into a craft room. Even though most days I could only work on it 5-10 minutes at a time before the baby would need me, I did get it done little by little.
As I said, organization is very difficult for me.
I was actually very proud of myself for what I did.
It took me forever to put the shelves together and organize things into baskets. (Yes you read that right- I organized things into little baskets!!!)
I was going to take pictures to post on here. I just had a few things to finish.
Then it happened.
The night before our court investigator came (the very last step to finalizing our adoption!) I was trying to get Jayden to sleep and Adam was doing some last minute cleaning, which included putting something on the craft shelves. I was upstairs in the nursery so I didn't hear the loud crashing sound.
Adam came up and gave me the bad news.
All of our shelving that was holding my scrapbooking supplies had come apart and there were craft supplies EVERYWHERE.
Open stamp pads, spilled beads, all kinds of paper, stickers, markers, glue, scissors, photographs...
It was bad.
I had a complete breakdown and then we came up with a plan. My mom came over with large totes and we threw it all in them...then hid the totes in our cars! Our cars were filled- front, back, and trunk.
Our inspector came the next day and everything went very well.
So, now I am left with bins full of scrapbooking stuff. Exactly where I was at months ago. How depressing is that?
One thing I know for sure is that after all that craziness, I deserve real shelves this time, right? Not flimsy wire cubes that come apart!
I can't believe I am starting over again.
