a little embarrassing

Here is a sneak peak of our extra bedroom/office/ my creative space. This first picture is what it looked like when we first moved in. I know none of that bedding matched, but you get the picture. We sold this bed and the desk that we had in the room back in January before I knew I was pregnant. I was just going to change it into my creative space, so I purchased the 9 cube storage container with bins that got stolen out of my car in February. Anyways.... this is going to be the nursery, and it has a long way to go! There is no closet in the room, so this is going to be the closet, it's a built in desk in the wall. {I'm going to get rid of all the books}. I'm going to hang some sort of curtain to close everything off, get a rod to hang the clothes on, and some sort of matching storage bins to go on the shelves to put things in.
Yes, it's a mess, I know! This room over the last month has just become a junk room, and I can't believe that I let it get this bad! If you see the rest of my house, there is a place for everything, well, not the case for this room!
There is a pile of about 100 reciepts from last year. crazy, I know. The rubbermaid containers has my ribbon supplies for hairbows, scrapbooking supplies, and wrapping/party supplies{yes, I save tissue paper, leftover napkins, and plastic tableclothes to reuse for parties.}
anyone want some pool noodles??? haha. I will be selling those in the yard sell on the 15th for probably less than 50 cents. That is where most of this stuff will be going. to the yard sell. or to goodwill. I'm hoping to clear this room out by the end of May. This summer will be crazy when I start working full time and being preggo. I have a stack of paintings that I would like to sell that I did in my college art classes, I just don't have room for any of this stuff in our house!
This is a little embarrassing for me... and my "neat freak" self. Anyone want to come and help, clean, and organize all my mess?? hehe. I will be posting updates when I get all of this junk outta here!!!

I would actually love to come help you organize! Also, I'd be more than happy to take some/all of those paintings off your hands. Let me know when you'd like to start cleaning, and I'll get my mother-in-law to watch the kids so I can help you child-free! Love you, and, again, I am so excited for your little baby!
