getting organized

If you know me at all, you probably know that I am not super organized.
I love the idea of everything having its own (cute) place, 
knowing where everything is, 
and not fearing that someone is going to peek in a closet and get all judgy. 
I have the best of intentions, but they don't usually pan out. 
But, since 2012 is the year of gettin' organized up in here, I found a little inspiration to get me going:

A basement stairwell pantry is brilliant to me. 
Book organization is a must. (I only worry a little that my boys would use the book slings as climbing apparatuses).
A gorgeously organized sewing nook, I'll take it. 
Jewelry in one lovely location would make my husband love me more, and if it's cute, well... I'm happy.
Getting all of the art supplies within easy reach and manageable containers would make me less inclined to run for the hills every time our giant crayon tub is overturned onto the dining room floor (approximately 12 times a day).

I love lovely organized spaces, and with small manageable goals, I think I can do it.
