Organizing my space - Part 1

Well, I had a wonderful time scrapbooking on the Oct. 14th weekend. Once I got home and started unpacking I realized I had a wee bit of a mess - to the point that some of the paper I took with me and didn't use woud not actually go back into the paper hoilders. And then I discovered a stack of paper I had bought over the summer and had not yet actually even attempted to put away. So I have decided it's time to finally get my stash organized and purged.

Mid purge... I forgot to snap a pic at the start of the process.

 The stack of paper I am putting aside for the next LSS garage sale.

 My paper holders, nicely labelled and put away in my armoire. All the drawers have clothing in them. The cupboard was empty so a couple years ago I decided to use it for sb related items. I also have my closet split in half this way. Pics of that to follow.

 A close up of my paper holders. I've got my paper organized by manufacturer; it's just how my mind works. I've labelled the holders on the side there so it's easy to see what I have and find the line I'm looking for. As well, the beauty of putting the labels here rather than on the hard plastic dividers is that they seem to come off easier. That will be helpful when I run out of certain company's paper and I know I won't be getting any more (Sniff. I miss you, Scenic Route).

 The bottom shelf... yes, my SU card making cardstock needs to be reorganzed, and possibly moved to a better location. I have more than that and it's NOT all going to fit. I don't actually know what's in that box beside it... I'm afraid to look at this point. :)

And 3 cards I made last week... we had our Stamper's Group last Tuesday. I actually made 6 cards, 3 for me and 3 for a friend who couldn't make the group that night. These are the 3 she chose - I made each version of the card a little different.
