As seen - empty boxes

I really really wanted to be showing a photo or two of my nice tidy orderly craft room and conservatory but it is still a work in progress. But this photo will give some indication of how far I have got

all these boxes are now empty and all their contents placed in a sensible place where hopefully I will be able to find them when required.
I still have more to do but I'm definitely beginning to see a light at the end of the tunnel. Next big job will be to sort out all my alphas and find a much better way of storing them than just bunging them all higglety picklety in a drawer.

Again I haven't left the home because I really do want to get this job completed. But I have done the weekly challenge from UKScrappers this week we have a nice sketch to work from
and we have to take inspiration from a book. this was the perfect sketch and the title came to me immediately but I had to check whether it was a book or just a song title. Brilliant it is a book and what's more a children's book from Shelterbox
so lunchtime I sat down with my computer and produced this
The day that the rain came

hopefully soon I will be able to do some scrapping with paper and bits

Today I am grateful for BBCi (forgot to watch Call the Midwife yesterday)
and I'm so glad I have a pile of empty boxes.

I can't wait to see the unveiling of your newly organized room! Looks all very interesting so far.

Oh you are doing so well! Of course, now that you have those empty boxes, you will be able to find the perfect storage box(es) for your alphas. You could label the side of the box, so it would stand up in a bookcase/ on a shelf, so you could keep them all tidy.
I really must start on my messy studio... it's still such a terrible mess and it's been months since I got the new shelf unit/cupboard and even longer since the "Disaster" that messed it all up in the first place. Thank you for the nudge and inspiration - good luck with your tidying up!

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
