Craft Room Organization Part 2 (lots pics) WINNER

I am back today to share my second half of my craft room pictures.It feels good to have finished so many projects.
If you can check out part one organizingI shared on Tuesday.
 These are some of the drawers that were stuffed full and unable to open without a great effort.
Chipboard and doily's I cut up and use . 

 I was thrilled to get the same items together and easily accessible when I need them.
I was amazed at how many of the products I didn't even know I owned.
Tattered Angels, More chipboard
 Then I decided to clean out my hanging organizers- these hang on the wall and hold lots of supplies.I have three of them handy when I need them.
 Have you seen these Tim Holtz luggage pieces? I used this small one to put many of my embellishments so I could have them in one place.Next I want to decorate the outside.

Can you believe I went even further? I have these odd pieces of older furniture, the shelves were JAMMED full of things. I cleaned off everything, and got rid of many glass containers I didn't need anymore.

I love how clean they look now and I can enjoy some of my favorite finished projects.

 Last of all I cleaned off my workspace! I love to have most of my supplies near me so when I take time to craft it is there.

 See how much space I have now to work in? Sorry the mat looks so bad-I really need to clean it with a heavy duty cleaner.

So how did you like what I have finished so far?
I have more things to do but I am thrilled with what I accomplished so far.

Thanks so much for the visit

Good job Dawn! It seems that ever since I started my blog called Diary of a Craft Room Organization to hold myself accountable for actually organizing it I've gotten further and further behind. Does anyone else have this problem? I mean the one where we spend more time online looking at all the amazing stuff people have made and wonderfully organized rooms... well you know what I mean, right? I thought so!
Sharon if you contact me through my contact link with your address I will mail out some goodies to you.

How about another small giveaway???
Leave a comment on this post and let me know what your favorite way to organize .
I will pick a winner and announce on next Wednesday
