Working On My Organizational Skills

I'll admit it. I AM GUILTY! I watched a Martha Stewart video on organizing my craft room. Well, I probably only got about 1 minute into it when she started talking about labeling with a p-touch label maker. Years ago, hubby got one for Christmas. It was too complicated for him (I think it was in the era before cell phones?)

Anyway, the conversation the other day was along these lines:

Me: Do you know where that label maker is?
Him: No, I think we got rid of it.  [Me thinking: Got rid of it? Us? No way!]
Me: No, I told you not to get rid of it.
Him: Try my office closet.

And yes, that is where it was. All it needed was 8 fresh AA batteries. The cat and I had a great time printing labels. She kept trying to figure out how to make it print.

So labels are made and I am still putting them on the appropriate storage containers. Back to work!

Don't forget I am giving away a slightly used Sizzix Texture Boutique that has all it's parts. You only need to leave a comment on my blog. Here is the link.

Another Give-Away

I am having a give-away now until February 17th, which is my birthday. I am giving away a Sizzix Texture Boutique. It isn't new, but it is in great shape. It's been replaced by a Big Shot and since you can see my space is limited ... I thought I would give it away. I'll use to chose the winner.

How do you win? Just leave a comment and I'll pick the winner on February 17, 2013.

Workin' on Organization

Still waiting to hear a quote on our home "improvement" projects. Basically, they are built-in storage for our great room and our storeroom/craft room. Also waiting to hear back from the fence guy who is going to install a hand railing on our front steps. Hopefully, it will make it easier for me to get up and down those steps. Granted, I rarely go in and out that way, but we are aging and my new right knee just doesn't work like the old one. 

I hate waiting. In the meantime, I took some pictures of the storeroom. Sort of cleaned up. Sort of. All the plastic storage bins are filled with photos that need to be sorted. You can see that I craft on one side of the room. It will be nice to have one level work surface. And someplace where I can work on sorting those photos.
