Sorting Through It {Part 1}: Home Office/Library


Ever since I had a mishap and accidentally deleted over 2000+ pictures from an almost brand new external drive that decided to get corrupted, I have become a photo hoarder on an unprecedented scale. This goes to show that certain experiences in life whether good or bad, always leave a behavioral repercussion that could either be positive or negative. In my case, it has made me keep every single picture on my computer even after I have used them in posts. Then I back them up on at least three different external drives (besides using three different online photo archive sites), AND I have the hubby back one of my main flash drives on his portable backup drive as well. I know that sounds a little bit overboard, but I've learned that it's better to err on the side of caution than to be a sobbing mess later (YUP! This was totally me when it happened)...


Sadly, my dilemma is that after taking all these extra precautionary measures, I now have so many pictures that my hard drive is overloaded and its hard to track which pictures I can delete to free up space and which ones I need to keep for my posts. It's also downright crazy (not to mention time consuming/unproductive) trying to organize all my photos when they are everywhere in cyberspace! Imagine my frustration as I am an extremely organized person who despises disorder. The worst part is that I want to get all this done before 2013 bids us farewell. Also having this on my to-do list (for a long time now) has been weighing on my mind so much that when I involuntarily wake up in the middle of the night, all I can think about is how I need to just get it done already...meaning posting them on the blog where I know exactly where they are and able to reference back for inspiration when needed. So for the sake of sorting some of them out, please indulge me as I randomly post these pictures according to categories up on my website. I promise you, they aren't repeat photos... some of them have been there way before the launch of this blog and still inspire me.

I will start with a few of the home office/library photos I have collected over the years.  For the most part I don't remember what website I've saved them from, so if you recognize any photos, please notify me so I can properly credit the web page.


  


I've even started to scan some favorite design photos out of magazines instead of dealing with what I used to as previously mentioned here. I hope you too, are inspired by these photos and feel motivated to get organized and live clutter-free and pretty.
