Embrace Your Space

This title is always an article in the Creating Keepsakes Magazine I subscribe to. They have pictures of people's scrapbooking places and how they have organized them. I have always drooled at how great these spaces are and loved how they have it all organized.

Since I have all my scrapbooking supplies in my bedroom it has been hard because my stuff has always taken over the corner of the room. Organizational items aren't cheap and I have slowly tried to get to where I want to be. Zeb has been incredibly patient. :)

Over the course of about a year now, I have been trying to get my stuff organized. Even after Zeb bought me a small bookshelf for my stamps there still was too much stuff for the space. So when Zeb and I saw this 16 cubby bookshelf from IKEA you could say I was pretty stoked.

Slight problem: We drove all the way to Round Rock in our "small" family vehicle and after deciding to purchase the bookshelf Zeb had the bright idea to measure it first. Needless to say the car was an inch too short. We thought, "hey, we'll just get it delivered." Well, that doesn't work when it would cost MORE THAN THE BOOKSHELF!!! Bummer. Luckily Josh and Carol were driving down that weekend and they have an IKEA close to them. So they picked it up for us and drove it here in their truck. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

This shelving unit was PERFECT and the last thing I needed to organize all my stuff. I love it and think my space has been fully "embraced!" The huge project of organizing my space is finally finished. Man it feels good! I am so excited!
