Introduction: Organizing Books, Photos, and Sewing Stuff

About: I am a 13 year old girl that loves sewing. That is all you need to know about me.

I bought the book "The Organized and Inspired Scrapbooker" by Wendy Smedley & Aby Garvey as an attempt to become more organized.  It kind of worked.  I started by organizing my family's books and misc. paperwork items.  Then I moved on to the photo organizing.

I had many junk items I collected that are "memorable" to me, ie: Gift cards, clothing tags, receipts, that were cluttering up my drawers, so I decided to explore with different ways I could organize them.  I started by making a small scrapbook page of the things I wanted to keep at a specific area (in this case, Disneyland).  I then took an old corkboard from out of the garage and put pictures and other miscellaneous things on it using pushpins.

The last thing I will mention that I organized was my sewing accessories.  I took some old tins and buckets, and filled them up with sewing patterns and sewing accessories (scissors, rotary cutter, pens, fabric pens, etc.)

And that concludes my attempt to being organized.

    I have sooo much fabric! I keep most of my fabric in a huge 6' cabinet, but things I'm working on, and patterns, I keep in covered wicker baskets. I have them in all shapes and sizes and colors. I have the majority of them on my entertainment center ( I have a tiny,tiny tv). Smaller stuff like thread, bobbins,etc, I keep in pretty metal cans, usually cookie tins from thrift shops. This keeps my place relatively neat.

    I love the books in rainbow order :DDD Haha, organization is lost on my family :) It seems every week me and my mom clean/organize our craft/sewing room.....haha
