Get my pun? I am so funny- I know- restrain yourselves. Seriously, stop, you are embarrassing me.
Anyway, I have been a busy little bee over in our little apartment! I have attached the closets and laundry room with little mercy. Here are my results thus far. . .
Coat Closet Before:
(Please ignore the two bottom shelves- they filled with my scrapbooking stuff- and that is a whole other can of worms that I have yet to open.)
I know that these look a lot the same, but I did some re-arranging, and made things a bit more "together."
My most brilliant move of the clean, however, were my ribbons. I cannot get rid of them (especially now that I can make Taggie Blankets), but they were always getting tangled up. So I came up with this clever system.
I have a million of these black plastic things that our developed photos used to come in, way back in the day when we actually had film. Gosh! I placed one end of the ribbon inside the box, snapped it shut, and then wound the ribbon around the outside of the box, taping it down at the end. It is fantastic!
As far as the bedroom closet goes, I was able to consolidate some stuff from the coat closet, so now all our bedding (and air bed) are all in one spot. Exciting, I know.
But the closet it far from done. Hopefully I will not get lost in the mountians of school papers and books towering in the closet so I can show you all progress in the decluttering arena! Wish me luck . . .
As a side note, I finally hung our engagement picture and was signed at our wedding back up. (I took it down after two years to update our living room mantle. Plus, it seemed a little narcissistic to have ourselves at the focal point of the room . . .)
Here is is, in all its glory, hiding in the closet. Like the caricature of me at age 13? Yep, it was done at my good friend's bat mitzvah, and laminated by my dad a few years ago. Thanks Dad.
