I’ve been meaning to ย share with you how I’ve re-organized by scrap table weeks ago but I didn’t manage to get down to it until now. Remember that wood table top drawers I lugged home from Hong Kong early June? Yes, the one that I love so much that I HAD to buy it no matter how heavy it was and DH was kind enough to offer to carry it home for me! He’s the sweetest, isn’t he? ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, this wood drawer is now sitting nicely on my table and the drawers are filled with all my bits and pieces of scrapbook materials such as note cards, tags, washi tapes etc. The drawers are indeed really useful!!

The Jillibean journaling cards can fit perfectly into the drawer!! How cool! ๐Ÿ™‚

My washi tapes are also sitting nicely in the little drawers and I filled up 3 drawers full of my tape collection! ๐Ÿ˜‰

And I love the brass handles on each drawer which I can insert a label on the front!

If only they have more than a piece of this drawer, I would have carried more back from Hong Kong. Just too bad they only have this one and only piece in their store.

And even after I cleared some of my TONS of bits and pieces of stuff into these little drawers, my table is still kind of messy. I felt uneasy seeing my things being placed all over my table so I had to think of a way to organize them neatly. Guess what?

I bought another shelve from Ikea!! *laugh* In fact it was fully sponsored by my dear hub, again! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’ve seen this HENSVIK shelf may times before whenever I visit Ikea but a couple of weeks ago when I popped by the store again I decided I have to get it! I knew it would sit nicely on my table and it did!! ๐Ÿ˜€

I even managed to store all of my “not-too-many” bottles of paints and mists into one of the slots. Seriously, I think I have the least paints and mists by any scrapbookers’ standard. Right? *laugh*

I even spotted this SKURAR plant pot on my way to the check-out hall and I grabbed it at only S$4.90! It’s such a steal and I placed it on top of the Hensvik shelve and filled it with my scissors, pens and other tools. Love!!

So, here are my 2 shelves, sitting nicely on my scrap table and all my things are organized neatly the way I want them to be (a few more loose items to be put away, soon I hope ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). I am one HAPPY woman!! ๐Ÿ˜€

What about you? Do you like to organize your materials neatly like the way I do or you can do with all the mess? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Seriously, I’m a freak when it comes to organization. I cannot stand the sight of my table and other parts of my home to be messy but that’s just me. I used to be agitated easily when things around the home get disorganized but I learned to let go of my obsession with cleanliness and being a neat freak. I’m definitely a much better person to live with now. ๐Ÿ™‚

Gotta go now. Will be back soon to share my SB projects soon!
