Organizing Tips - SpazzTv Debut

My birthday was lovely.
I got a new lightsphere for my camera, so all my pictures should be perfect now.
I got some new Cherry-themed juice glasses for my soon to be cherry-themed kitchen.
And I got to spend some quality time with family chowing down some amazing Chinese fare and enjoying the BYOB policy of the restaurant.

I spent a lot of the weekend driving my family nuts with talk about how old I am and dwelling on that fact.
Ridiculous, I know.
But I was in a birthday funk, I guess.
"Look at how OLD I am now and what have I done?"
All anyone could do was nod and tell me countless times, "You're not old!"
I'm sure the funk will dissipate this week, it was just the inital shock that has lead to some self issues.

I also spent a lot of my weekend doing a lot of nothing.
I scrapped a ton on Friday.
And watched some movies.
Then spent some time with the Mac book and put the final touches on my movie.

So, here it is.
The debut of SpazzTv.
Keep in mind that I just learned how to use iMovie.
Oh hell, I just learned how to use a Mac! (I couldn't stop double-clicking for a while)
And the whole thing was shot with the iSight camera, so it's not the best.
But it's ok.
And apparently I have more chins than I thought.

So enjoy!

Future movies will be done with the new camera I got for my birthday, so that should help the quality.
And now that I have worked out a lot of the kinks in home movie making, the next one should be better.
So check back.

Movies currently in production:
* How to use the Bind It All
* More Organizing Tips
* Projects, Projects, Projects
* Copics (if I get back into the swing with them!)
* And I look inside scraprooms...yep, if you are on my calendar scheduled for a visit, the camera is coming and everyone will get a look inside your crafty space, so be prepared!!

And much more, I'm sure.
So stay tuned.

Wow, your space is soooo organized. I'll have to have you come to the craft cellar in my house and whip it into shape.
LOVE the tip about scrap storage. I have most (well some) of my 12x12 paper sorted by color and labeled but didn't want to just jam all my scraps is with them so I will have to start eating cereal so that I can utilize tip #5. Thanks for the video and tips.

Julie S. said...

This was a total treat to get to see you and feel you "jump out of the screen" a bit MORE than you do with your already great blog.

Too bad all of us are sort of anonymous, still!

Love your "lame" tips! And I look forward to more of your videos!

Murphy's Law said...

snort. you are soooo funny. loved the video. and had birthdays like that. the feeling does pass. lol!

Sheila D. Staves said...

LOOOVE the video!!! Thanks so much for sharing your tips - I'm definately going to stop throwing away the empty cereal boxes (I also have a bottomless pit boy who lives in our house, so I should be able to supply all my crafting friends too!) Keep up the great work and remember age is just a number and doesn't diminish who you are!

Simone your video rocks! Your cereal box idea was PERFECT!!!! Too bad I have a nook and not a room or else I would definitely be using it! Love your IKEA organizer with the cups. Since Leilani's godfather lives near there, I will be sweet talking hubs to go there for a visit, as an ulterior way to get to IKEA!!

Happy Belated Birthday!
