Cleaning out my closet

I know it's a little late for Spring cleaning, and although I was dreading it I tackled my
french armoir with a vengeance

I purchased stack able units from best craft organizer, they have super thin drawers that allow inserts to hold and sort the small stuff like findings and buttons

I also needed slots for fabric and such so I put up a rod and hung canvas shoe organizers- perfect for all my fabrics and felts;)
even the funky place mats I bought from pier one(to cover art journals) have a spot

Yarn and foam for future cupcake classes- wow do I have a lot of supplies or what?

I hope as I get deeper into this I find a space for my Dolly parts
I had ordered deeper drawers so they should fit

Up until now I have been storing all my vintage gen finds in this fun hat box-
cute but

not necessarily the best way to do it

I even felt encouraged to re organize my existing system that I use for scrap booking etc...

By adding the drawer inserts my collections of keys and found metal looks so much more inspired
As do my brads, after sorting through everything I think I deserve
some much deserved play time;)

Wow! You are so organized! Perhaps you could come over to my house and tackle my stuff, which, by the way, isn't even in a closet. And my armoire is full of fabric and pillow forms. Eek!

Doesn't it feel great to organize? I love that feeling and I seem to be happier when my life is not a clutter.
I saw some lovely treasures!
