                                     While I work on organizing

Almost have the drawer done!  Just not willing to spend $. So I am trying to come up with ideas that don't cost an arm and a leg.  One little organizing tray from Wal-Mart was marked at $14.00.
So, I thought I would ask if any of you know what these are??
                        Have you used them?

                    What about this gadget?    
Would love to know, what you think they are and what they are used for???

                         Didn't go as planned

I started this adventure with a drawer right next to my sewing machine.  It is the one that is the most used and really needs to be organized.
Ten minutes turned into an hour, then into two hours.  Then a panicked Facebook post asking if anyone had a clue as to how to organize this drawer.  A few hi fives as I call them, then silence.

                 More Before--- Which also might turn into
                     The after!

So that sums up day one of my organizing challenge.  Feel free to borrow my idea.

Since moving in, all I have done is dump and run.  I sew by pulling out everything I can find and then not put it back!!
So the time has come to organize, and make it an enjoyable place to be.   I am not going to throw myself into organizing as I have in the past.  What I have done is spend a day just diving in and throwing out and not have any sort of plan.
                       The plan

I am going to spend, no more then ten minutes a day organizing.   I will start the clock and when ten minutes is up I will stop for the day.

                      The goal

To have a wonderful, creative space to spend the winter months. Creating, special things for special people.
It needs to be creative, workable and girly.

Follow along and let me know how your organizing is doing.

 My old sewing room, where I had room to spare.
Yes, I still have the dog and he is still hanging around the sewing room.  Although, the room I have now is super tiny.
