Conquering Kitchen Clutter: Part Three

Happy hump day! How's your week going? Has anyone done any organizing? I haven't done much this week on the organizing front. It was migraine city one night and last night I was so whooped from work that I crashed early and I think I fell asleep before my head even hit the pillow! Can you actually do that? heh. Timber! I really think I did! Anyhow I'll be happy if I can get the laundry washed and put away before it's time to do more loads!

Oh I have to share that I did finally relax some last weekend. I have trouble relaxing. 
EVER! I think it's partly just in my blood to be busy and to always want to be doing something productive. Over the weekend I did an exercise (not so much a conscious decision but it just sorta happened and I liked!) in leaving the wrist watch at home and spending time away from any clocks and simply losing track of time! It was awesome! So good for the soul! Went to the park and played like a kid! 

Tangents tangents is muwa. Okay now back to organizing which I did a few weeks ago and am just now getting to! Below is the BEFORE picture of one of my craft cabinets which is located in the kitchen. I have gobs of artsy crafty goodies and supplies waiting to be used! Everything was pretty much thrown in the cabinet, no rhyme or reason. 

Junk to the left! Junk to the right!

I basically just grouped similar things together
and tossed what I could.

My spools of ribbon are stacked to the right. 
I used jars to store stones.

To the left side, bottom row of the cabinet I decorated some tin cans to corral miscellaneous items. Sounds elementary and maybe it is, but it's a cheap and functional solution! I'll share that whole project with you in my next post. Until then, hope you are able to get away and lose yourself somewhat! It's so refreshing!
