Organizing with Ikea :-)

Hello Crafty Friends!

This weekend we took a ride to Ikea to get some more organizing/storage solutions for around the house, namely, my scraproom.  I purchased 2 sets of drawers to fit into the Expedit bookcase I already had.  Sometimes drawers do the best trick at keeping small things tidy.  Here is the before and after:



And, here is what is  inside each of the drawers:





I also received this order from Joann's during the week.  My big project of the year is starting and completing my daughter's baby album, and to start her toddler album.  So, I've started collecting some adorable papers.   I love these from K & Company.

So, what do you think?  Do you love to organize?  I have a love for organizing.  You'd never had thought that seeing as I always had a messy room as a kid.  I also got to re-organizing my kitchen cabinets yesterday, and my daughter's room.

We purchased this Trofast piece for our daughter's room.  It holds some puzzles, small toys, and books in the top three bins, and in the bottom bins, larger toys.  We're graduating from a baby's room to a toddler's room.  Yesterday, my daughter spent a long time playing in her room -- prior to this, all of her toys were in the living room.  I was able to work on my scraproom (on the same floor) and my husband watched her on the monitor as he prepared for work.  It was a new experience for all.

Thanks for stopping by! :-)
