LESSology: Chest of drawers

Hello!


I'm here with my LESSology Chest of Drawer project...do you remember this sneak peek?


Well, here is the before product:


It's one of those countertop organizers.  I happened to find it at a Salvation Army store in Seattle and thought:  

BINGO!

Whaddya think?


I literally used a drawer....


It's the perfect size and chunkiness.  So, I'm still smitten with Basic Grey's Konnichiwa collection.  That  sweet girl has been stamped, colored and paper pieced.  She's on glue dots...what's that?  Well, that note paper style base is actually upcycled Sassafras packaging.....I just topped it off with a band of Konnichiwa paper, a quote sticker by Teresa Collins and that fab hand made loopy bloom is compliments of my bloggie friend, Sherry.  

You can't really tell by the pictures, but I cut 4x6 index cards in half and have them stacked behind....I haven't decided if I want to make them birthday calendar pages or a daily journal....

I'm also linking up to A Blog Named Hero Challenge #1:



That little Japanese Girl image is one of my favs right now...I love that Hero Arts has teamed up with Basic Grey on the Konnichiwa Collection.

This also works perfectly for the Moxie Fab World's challenge:

Our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is Paper and Such, an online store. The prize is a set of clear polymer stamps made in the USA.

I can't wait to see how the Chest of Drawers challenge inspires YOU! 

A little re-org:


The good news:

I'm getting new carpeting.

The bad news:

I'm getting new carpeting.

For those of you have been following me for a while know that I have a crafting hallway...upstairs...on carpeting.  I'm super duper lucky to have 2 bays of closets for my goodies...stuff is stacked from the ground up...the ground, that has carpeting.  Are you getting the picture?  I've basically had this week off from work and I'm slowly moving all my crafting furniture downstairs to the living room until the carpeting has been installed.  

Um, yes, I do have more cubes...like 4 or 6 more that need to squeeze in this little area that I've set aside ....I'll take a pic after everything has made it to this temporary space...

  1. I love the fact that you have a crafty hallway! I couldn't be trusted to have my crafted goodies in an area that I walked past all the time, I'd never get anything done! Good luck with the shifting and lifting ;o)

  3. That organiser is so cool and I love the way you've used the drawer! I think you should be the official spokesperson for Konnichiwa - you rocked it again!
    You should enter this at Moxie Fab's Don't Throw It Away challenge since you used that packaging.

    And I feel your pain with the craft supply moving. Boy is it a slow process (especially when I get distracted and start making cards instead...)

  5. What a fun drawer you have, Amy, and of course the card is cute! Your space will be nice when finished, I know I love mine. My husband moved my cubes, so I could paint my room, all 40 of them! It was worth it for sure. Have a wonderful week off.

  31. What a great idea. Glad I got rid of my carpet in my craft area. Although it's a real task to keep the wood floor free of glue and scraps... it's much better than carpet.
