What I've been doing today

Hello friends, unfortunately I don't have any new fun projects to show off this week. But here is what I have been working on today.....MY  MESSY OFFICE!

You know, the bad thing about having a room all to yourself is that you keep throwing everything in it and shut the door behind you (well, at least I do)


Pretty bad, uhhhhh? 
CLEARLY, I HAVE NO SHAME!

but here we are,  just about an hour later.....
Soooo much better (but no opening the closet door, ok?)


I think even "Willie" the tortoise is happier, he has a much better view now ....lol

A quick BEFORE and AFTER....
That's all I got sweets.....my good deed for the day. Hopefully I will have something more creative to share next week!!!! 
Christine

  2. Those days when you just get in there and clear it out - feels so good! I can't seem to catch up on any one room but I am little by little purging junk in the whole house. I want to start over with everything I have. You will be all inspired to create now. :)

  9. Looks great, Christine! I love your armoire with the fold out shelf! That's exactly what I need for my craft/guest room so I can hide everything when someone comes to stay with us! Thanks so much for linking up at Share Your Stuff Tuesdays!

    1. Hi Emily, the armoire was from Ikea a long time ago..but they still have one just like this but in black I believe.....it does not take up too much room, which is great. Have a very Happy Thanksgiving Emily!

  17. Hi Christine,
    My catch all room was formerly my daughter's bedroom and she can't believe what I've done with the place (tongue in cheek).
    Your workspace cupboard and matching storage are very nice. Are they custom made?

    1. HI Gayle, oh no the cupboard is from Ikea and so is the matching filing cabinet...it's nothing special but I like the narrow size of it, because it does not take up a lot of space in the room!!! Thanks for stopping by

  18. It tidied up so nicely. Really a great space! I have my own space downstairs, but my catch all seems to be my laundry room. If I am in a hurry or don't quite know to put something it ends up there. I have to give it a good cleaning as soon as the Christmas décor is finished. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,

  21. Organization is a GREAT project to share! And I have one of those rooms with all my craft stuff in it...with the door currently closed because you can't even walk in there... No tortoise, though, at least not on purpose! :)
    Thanks for linking up to Twirl & Take a Bow last week. Hope you'll join us again this week!
