I finished moving things out on Thursday, and prepped to paint. I won't tell you that I elected (not forgot, but rather chose) not to caulk after I taped everything off. Stupid! (Note to self - don't ever do that again.) Visions of the perfect room must have been clouding my brain, because I obviously wasn't thinking clearly.
Friday morning was spent painting the trim, and then we started moving things in. My order came on 2 pallets, and it took almost as much work to get them unpacked as it did to put them together. It took the entire day to get all my tables moved in and assembled. I moved a few things in on Friday, but was so exhausted I had to get some sleep. I wanted to sleep on my new tables, they were so pretty! But that wouldn't have been very comfortable, so I went to bed instead.
I woke up early Saturday and started the big move-in. I don't even think I made my coffee before I started. I knew I hadn't ordered all the cubes I would eventually need, but I have a place for the things I use on a regular basis. Once I decide how I want to store the left-overs, I'll know which cubes to order. Moving all my paper out of my closet and into the file drawers has freed up a ton of shelf space in my closet, so now I have that storage space to use.
Here is a peek at how I organized my embellishments.
I spent a good part of Saturday, and most of the day today unmounting and combining my stamps in SU storage cases. My record is eleven sets in one case. Granted, some of them are single stamps, but it would still take eleven boxes to store them, and I reduced that to one DVD sized case. I'm not even close to seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, but if I do a few sets a day, I should be done in a couple months. Just kidding - maybe a couple weeks. I hope!
And that is why I don't have any pictures of my whole room yet. It is still a mess with stamps, and cases, and stuff all over the place. But I am making progress, and it looks so much better than it did. I will try post pictures of my whole room soon.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you understand why I haven't been stamping lately. That is going to change, though, now that I can get to all my stuff!
