OK...my after pictures.... I guess the challenge wasn't a total fail....
Books, after... sorted by theme....on the bottom shelf are my babies....the first 5 years of Mother Earth News.
This is my homesteading, herbal stuff, travel and DIY bookshelf...
These were the books before...they were all in my bedroom, now they're in my tiny room that's not a closet but not a room either.
The most organized part of my craft supplies...
And on a frugal crafty topic...this container was made from a tea container that my supervisor gave me. I used an exacto knife to fit one of the peg board things into it. It makes a great container for markers, and look purty.
Some scrapbooking/paper stuff. This is on top of my craft book bookcase which is, unfortunately, blocked by boxes right now. Blythe looks scared...poor thing has been ignored lately.
And the ubiquitous No!Kitten! picture. My scrapbooking tote is her favorite place to perch lately. And yes, that is a box of Cheerios near her. My daughter munches them everywhere. She's 15, and still munches Cheerios.
Well...it's a little better!
On the sock critter theme...here's one I made for a swap recently. Misha gave me grief for hours.."Mom! I can't believe you make sock rabbits in your free time. Why can't you just be normallllllll?" She has named him Awkward Bunny.
