Out Grown My Scraproom& JustRite Stampers!!

I have out grown my scraproom and created a huge mess.
I had taken the smaller bedroom as my scraproom,
but with the 2 closets(which is where I store my clothes),
it gave me little wall space for shelves.
Dh has been after me to move into other spare bedroom.
Its a bit bigger and has no closets, so it would give me more wall
space to put up shelves.So last weekend we decided to move.
OM word, I didn't realize I had so much stuff, and what a mess I have created.
I have the big items moved in, like my desk,unit I had my papers in,
plus my cardstocks racks.Everything else is still in the other bedroom,
plus the stuff I took from this room. So now I am running between 2 rooms, lol.After moving into this room, I am beginning to wonder if its big enough,lol.
Its gonna take me several weeks before I am fully moved into
the new room and have everything organize the way I want it.I can only work on it a little in the evenings and weekends.I want to go thru some of the stuff and start purging.So needless to say, there won't be much cardmaking done.
I can't seem to find some of my stuff from all the piles I have created.
Once I get it organize, I will post some pics.

I do have a couple of projects done that I had been working on.
I will post one today and leave the rest to post over the next couple of days.

Views of the Box.

I had started this journal a long time ago and never finished it.
While switching rooms , I came across it and decided to finish it off for a
young woman at work. She decided to go back to college and I thought it would
make a great gift for her.I made her a card and a book mark to go along with it.After I had it done, I was looking for something to display it in and
I came across this box I had saved from the grocery store.
The box contained chicken strips.( I never throw anything away)lol. I took it apart and used it as a template making some adjustments to fit the journal. I even cut out the opening and added an acetate sheet.I was quite pleased how it turned out.
Supplies; JustRite Monogram Stamper , K& Co pattern paper,Mix of ribbons from my stash, Circle& Rectangle nesties, Threading water punch,$store journal,Su ink, MA rickrack, acetate sheet,MM brads, Heidi Swapp letters,
Paper Pretties stamps colored with TomBows.
WooHoo, I just saw that JustRite is having a Stampin contest.

Sorry for the long post.
Thanks for stopping by , Have a wonderful day!

This is just so beautiful! I absolutely love the paper you used - I don't recognize it, because I'm sure I would have owned it by now if I had!

Oh, & by the way, I don't think we could ever have 'a big enough space' (this is experience talking... maybe it's just me?) But good luck with your moving!
