Show and Tell....Organizing




The truth is I would much rather be doing what Wynnona is ... you know catching up
on some beauty rest. But instead I am trying to organize my back room. soooo I am showing you what my Sweetie bought me from the Good Will (and ohhh yes, he got
lotsa good will for this baby!). It is a packing (or un-packing) station and looky looky a spot for ribbons and labels. Some nice cubbies right under the top and a shelf on the bottom...I will have to add a few more there so I can store more "stuff"...but all in all I looooove it. I think it will make my wrapping and packing a lot easier. Soooo, you got any good organizing tips? Better yet, you got any time to come for a nice visit and help me organize?

My wish for you: The tools you need to help you do whatever it is you do.

Hi Francie,,, first off that Wynona is adorable. I love her. Your husband is a sweetie. i would love to have a packing and wrapping station. This is the one area I need lots of help in for sure! I keep everything in one spot, but that is about as organized as it is.
I hope you have a great week! Take care,,
hugs, gail

Hi Francie!
I'm so jealous of your wrapping station. Lucky! Thanks for participating in my Creative Inspiration Giveaway. And good luck!

Oh, Wow! How fabulous is that! Look at all that work area?! What I would give for a dedicated packing station! Alas, even if I had such a thing, I no longer have room for it. This is going to make your packing and unpacking so much easier. Enjoy! :)

Laughing at Michele! And hello to all the pinkies! What a sweetie he was to think of you when he saw that packing station. My sweetie built me one and it has been a God send. I love it. It's not pretty but it sure makes life so much easier. Okay...I am tiptoeing out of the door so you can get some beauty sleep. xo Lynn

Oh, such a slick wrapping-unwrapping station you have there!!! Your Sweetie needs hime some pun'kin pie for being so sweet and smart and does it ever get any better than this.

My organizing tip is to equip your wrap station with all the predictable toys and tools -- labels, stamps, tissue, peanuts. And don't forget the not so likely accoutrements: scale, a measuring tape, scissors and a trash can.

If only I had the time to drive down and help you out...If only.

Ooooh Francie,
Sweetie did good!!! If I was not all the way across the U.S. I'd be right there helping you organize. I know you would be a hoot to be with whether work or play.
Long time no talk, so I thought I'd check in and see how you were doing. It looks like you are doing just fine.
Smoochies,
