40 Bags in 40 Days Challenge!! Coming to a craftroom near YOU!

It's time to "De-Crapify" my Office/Craft room. As you can see in the following pictures, I can probably clean out 80 Bags!! My goal = 10 bags... One area at a time.  Wish me luck.  (for those of you who haven't heard of this challenge, the goal is to remove 40 bags of "junk" and simplify your living space.) Details can be found on Pinterest, but basically you decide how big the bags are and if they are donated, trash or to sell - but ultimately you just need it out of your home..... Brace yourself, I'm goin' in!!
