So, now that I finally feel like I'm getting a handle on this house, I wanted to share pictures (before I lose my handle!). This is the after for the Great Room/Living Room, whatever you want to call it. I still need to get curtains and pillows to bring more color into the room, but that's not a biggie. And I want to replace the rug (it sheds, a LOT, and thanks to Herschie's antics, it is not so perfect anymore). Right now, there are bigger fish to the dining room.

Great Room After
Here is the "after" from decluttering the dining room. I have big plans for this room. I wish I had been hoarding $20 bills instead of scrapbook paper all of this time. And I am running out of items to put on Craig's List. Is there anyone that actually enjoys the art of scrapbooking, or is everyone else like me and just likes the idea a lot better?

Oh my, your words speak to my soul...and sting a little. I just cleared a ton of scrapbook paper and tools and embellishments from my computer/work/play room. I want to re-do it as a play room only. The scrap things found a new place in a storage area until I can let loose of it. Why is it so hard? Your home looks beautiful!

I hear you about the scrapbook paper!!! LOL!!! I could probably own a small island if I wouldn't have purchased all of that scrapbooking stuff. Anyway... your house is BEAUTIFUL!!! It's so nice to "see" you again :). Still doing my 365 at :)

The great room looks awesome and I adore that rug in the dining room! I'm a reformed scrapbook hoarder. Well... I still have a large box or two of supplies, but I no longer purchase more. That's a good step, right? lol

Wow, can you come help me with my house! I love what you've done and can't wait to see more. I might copy your photos up the stairs arrangement because I really need a place to put some of all these photos I take! Have you ever seen the sign's made out of scrapbook paper? It might be a good way to use some of what you have lying around:

Either that or send some to me so I can make one :o)
