De-Cluttering the craft room!

Today I realized that I need to find some balance in my crafty life.
I take on a ton of projects and then never have time for my own "stuff". The last 2 times I went to a scrapbooking retreat I ended up sewing, so I have not scrapbooked for over a year and I really miss it. 
So I have decided to take on less and make some time for me. 
  The 1st thing I had to do was to re-organize this room! My sewing projects had taken over and I truly had stuff everywhere!! It was such a mess that when I sat down to start to scrapbook all I could think about was the mess in the room all around me. I can not relax in a messy room.
 So I cleaned and cleaned and finally my room is put back together.

 This cabinet holds all of my stamps, magazines, scrapbooking embellishments, ribbon, and misc stuff!

 Above it is all my paper, photos, misc sewing supplies, and my wall o punches!

 The fabric storage is put back together, I even have one cubby open!!

 Cricut and painting corner.
 And finally my work table, which I could easily transform back to sewing without it being a big transformation.

 Under cabinet storage, lots of sweaters, burlap and fabric.

Lots of 12 x 12 bins that work great to store many different items! 
So that's it, my room feels clean and organized so now I feel like I can finally sit down and get something done!!! If you could see my pile of photos you would know why I need to get back to it! 
And in April, when I go scrapbooking, that is exactly what I am going to do!
