52 Weeks of organizing Week 4 Pantry

>> Thursday, January 27, 2011

My pantry tends to get a little overwhelming from time to time. When my daughter was 8 months old I started my road to organizing it. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Tupperware Modular Mates and here is why. It can take a pantry from this .......

and this....

To this.....

and this.....

I didn't get to finish the left side but I hope to find time this weekend to fix that.

My daughter is now 3 1/2 amd I am still adding to my additction, I mean collection.

One of my closest friends now sells it and it is not such a good thing b/c she always lets me know of the great sales.

I wouldn't be a good friend without posting a link to her tupperware site.

52 weeks of Organizing

>> Friday, January 21, 2011

At first I wasn't sure I would be able to join this......52 weeks is a long commitment to make and really, did my house have 52 things that needed to be organized?? Would I have time with a newborn?
So I decided to participate when I can and not stress when I can't. I will not I usually do not take before pictures, but maybe someday I will.

Join me in this path to organization at

Here is 2 kitchen cupboard I organized yesterday morning.

It felt wonderful this morning when I opened the cupboards.

My baby girl turned 2 months Sunday and I wondered where the time went to. I was finally able to find some time to start sewing again. Here are a few projects I was able to create this week.

Brightly Colored Bag!

This bag I created for a friend's teenage babysitter who adores bright colors!

It has 2 center outside pockets and 2 pockets inside. I hope she likes the bright colors.

Sage and Brown Tag Blanket

This Car seat sized blanket pairs cream satin with dark brown furry fleece, I used the combination of sage green and brown ribbons. This blanket was a first for me, it is embroidered with baby boys initials. I do not have a machine with this capability but a shop down the road from me can do it for me. I was nervous about how it would turn out....there are some things I would do differently next time with the size of the monograms but I LOVE the way it turned out.
I hope Mom and baby love it too!
