After my cry for help, we started to get to work around here. First up, tackling my desk. We bought some supplies, boxes, cubbies, dividers and a new bookcase to house everything from paper to portrait packaging supplies like ribbon, presentation boxes, albums and so much more.
Jase put the bookcase we bought together last night and I LOVE it. The best part is yet to come, the doors are big frames for (what else) PHOTOS. How flippin cool is that. Big photos! 15 in x75….yummmmm-e. And you know you’re hardcore organized when your labels need labels….
Funny story, the other day when I was labeling everything in sight, Taryn came and sat on my lap at my desk. She requested a label with her name on it to put on her shirt and spelled out the letters with me, t-a-r-y-n. Her next request cracked me up…”Mommy I need one that says “relax chic”….oh yes you do girlfriend. ha.
I’ve been picking up other little things for the house to help contain things. These finds were only $5 bucks! Score! I love TJMaxx.
I’ll come back and post pics of our new and improved organized spaces once we finish up, I’m just happy to finally make some progress! Thank you all so much for your ideas, feedback and understanding!!
Wow – the cupboard doors are picture frames? I’d love to get the info on the manufacturer and where to purchase something like that if you don’t mind. I’m a lurker on your site (found it when one of my friends had her maternity photos done with you). I really enjoy your blog and your style!
Please post more pictures of your new storage and where you got it. I so want to see the cabinet doors. Thanks 🙂
how exciting. Love all the boxes. my fiance keeps reminding me everytime that I want to buy a new one, that we already have tons at home 🙂 Can’t wait for the finished look. Love organizing
this inspires me. desperately need to organize my world….so hard to find a starting point!
Ooooohhhh…I’m excited to see pictures! Along with throwing some stuff on Ebay, I’m trying to organize what I want to keep and what an overwhelming task some days. It’s always nice to see how others have done it…good inspiration!
