LOL! I'm the type of person who will see a messy room and offer to come over and sort it with you later. I love re-tetris-ing a room for better traffic flow.I reorganize the living room about once every other month

Just yesterday my bf and I moved the bed against the wall, moved the floating nightstand,my typewriter stuff(<3333),his bass guitar and some storage stuff to a different place to make room for a *dun duh da DA!* sewing desk And somehow there is more room in here than before.I'm telling you, re-tetris-ing.

In a couple days we're going to basically raid every thrift store we know exists like mad people in search of such a desk to fill the new void and a nice trunk like the one I keep my yarn in for spare blankets to place at the foot of the bed.Ah, I love thrift stores.

You all have inspired me. I sat down with my wooden spools and made this organizer a little while ago. Now, I have an idea of what circs I have. I have more, but they are too big to fit through the holes of the spools, so I'll have to drill them out some.

Wow you guys are so organized!

I have my stash in Rubbermaids so I can't actually look at it unless I haul them out. :(

I have 2 bookshelves from Ikea I need to assemble. My latest book purchases have put my current bookshelves over their limit!

What I like about the Ikea ones (if they are the same as mine) is that you can get doors for them. It helps keep your stash clean and it looks so pretty and colorful through the glass doors.

You organizers are inspiring me! Your rooms (and spools) look beautiful!! I want to leave work right now, go home and start attacking my "craft room"!

...and Meowmeow, I think you and my DH are "astral twins". He has an LP Album collection that he probably started when he was 10 years old. He's 55 now, so you can only imagine. (Literally hundreds of albums!!) They're arranged in alphabetical order by artist, and when he has more than one by the same artist, they are arranged chronologically by year. We've had several floods, so some of the album covers (and art) have been lost, but he found some 12" x 12" manilla envelopes, and made his own (minus the art of course, but still a protective sleeve.). He has everything from rock, blues, 80's music, etc.

I had to laugh at your "re-tetrising". I can totally relate!

:O I almost wish I could jump to age 55 just to know what my LP collection would be like then.I just started sometime before Thanksgiving.

I have neighbors that listen to really loud rap so I have to counter that with really loud -what I call-"good music". They are probably ridiculously confused at this point as my "good music" can be anything from punk to reggae to metal to classical and opera.I can say with complete confidence that no one else in this neighborhood has Wagner records *ahem* or secretly conducts along to the songs when no one is looking >_>

How much more of a nerd does it make me if I admit to singing the song while I rearrange...every time?
