Technically, these pictures are NOT before pictures as I had already started pulling things off the desk shelves (it would be kindof hard to type with things piled on top of my keyboard;), but it will give you an idea how much had stacked up in this area.
And after a few hours of sorting and storing
I have to point out these cute organizer thingies (I'm not sure what they're called) . I picked them up at the local Goodwill for .99 cents each. I love the brightly colored polka dots inside; it kindof makes me not want to put anything in them... but then I suppose that would be defeating the whole purpose of having them;)
I also want to remind everyone that tomorrow is Recipe Fun Friday hosted by Nikki's Notes; last week a few new people joined in, but we would definitely like to add more to the list. Just try a new recipe (simple is fine) and post it to your blog. Then stop by Nikki's and link up.
