It's a vicious cycle.
This time around, however, I just got rid of it. Cold blooded, ruthlessness, get it out of here and let me tell you, it feels great! The kids didn't notice and I didn't notice and I can't just can't help myself. I've been tossing, cleaning and organizing all January. I've got a vision for my home and I'm making my way there slowly.
That is, until I get to the spare room. The room that houses all of my crafting goodies. My harden heart softens when looking at my crafting things. Pretty papers and silky ribbons, tassel toppers, miles of fringes, little embellishments, stamps and inks, scrapbooking supplies, home decor projects, fabric and felt. Oh how my little heart goes pitter-patter.
Pitter, patter, pitter, patter.....it's still a mess. A slightly better mess, but mess nevertheless.
A plan must be made. The stash must be contained yet accessible yet pretty. Everything Etsy has lots of pretty inspiration this month and when I went over there today, she posted even more pretties. I want these suitcases.
I know that I want the IKEA expedit shelf. My old Target shelf has nine cubbies, the IKEA shelf has 25! Oh the organizing and storing I could do! The old bookshelves all contained into one unit.
I've wanted it ever since I saw it in Tara Whitney's office two years ago.

And love it more in Benita's home found on her blog Chez Larsson.
I'm saving my pennies for this workhorse but the question remains, which color shall I get? Black-brown or white?
