Thing that makes me go MMMM!

IKEA!!!

Need I say more? My bookshelf (I once tackled) is from Ikea, the scrapbook shelving in my closet is from Ikea, the dressers, nightstands, and lamps in my bedroom are from Ikea, and now THIS....

The new things are the two shelves in the middle and the two bars beneath them with hanging organizers. Of coarse (again) I got this idea from my good friend Andrea, she uses Ikea organizing in her scrapbook studio, it's wonderful!!!
I now have a very handy and reachable basket for my paints that were all hidden in a drawer before... not a good place for them since I use them so often.
I also have a basket for my wooden stamps (Old and new, recognize them?) they were just taking up desk space, but I don't want them hiding away either.

And I have a great spot to put an open album with my latest layout on display. I have always loved to do that, but it always eventually got in the way and I had to move it. Now I won't have to because it's nice and high.

You may also notice (in the first picture) a 12x12 layout with a photo of my daughter on it... that's a sneak peek of the layouts I am doing from the photos I showed you on the 2nd of July. No worries, I will share when I am all finished.

Good talking at you ladies, I hope all is well.

Visiting from the party... what a great space! I have to remember IKEA when we get our new house and I have my own space. What a handy way to keep all those little supplies where you can see and reach them easily.

Yay! for new scrappy storage! I ♥ Ikea but now I don't have one close to me. I can't imagine some simple storage like that costing too much for shipping, I will check that out. I love the pages you have on display - so cute! And can't wait to see the pages for your daughter - w00t! for progress!

Just found your site from a friend and WOW! I've never looked at IKEA for their org possiblities but I will be now! Oh, and I love those pages you've got displayed, I'm getting more and more inspired by the minute! I've been doing a little thing I call "Masterpiece Monday" over at my site, posting my pages from the week before, you should come check it out sometime, I'm sure I'll be back here often.
