Maybe it's because, when it changes to fall here, we get more sleep because it's not so hot and we wake up with more energy. Maybe it's because my workroom gets cooler. That's usually the hottest room in the house in the summer months and the coldest one in winter.
This time of year, it's just right, temperature wise. Sooo.....I get a bee in my bonnet to deep clean.
I am tired of hunting for things and not finding them until I no longer need them. Tessie is too....She's up on the attic shelf yelling, "Where's my bed???"
For the past two days, I have been locking myself in the workroom, hours at a time.
It is semi related to minis because, once I finish, I can get a lot more mini-ing done. And it will get done a lot faster if I don't have to look for a widget that I shoved in a drawer somewhere, just to get it out of the way.
OK. The rant is finished. On with the show and tell....Kathi, over at "Beautiful Mini Blessings" http://beautifulminiblessings.blogspot.com/ asked, in a comment last week, "How do I like to store supplies. Just for you Kathi. This is how I do it (theoretically).
I finished putting together another storage unit yesterday morning. I took the bookcase from Walmart and installed it on the wall next to the door. On top of that, I put a unit that used to be on my desk. It is usually used for office supplies, but I am using it for bottle of glue and various other supplies.
I painted the little house bookcase black. Let it dry. Stacked it on top. I now have a passable hutch. It is already full.
I have a habit of making up rules for where things go as I do it. Sometimes they get re stacked three or four times, until the most used items are on top. That way I don't have to move things to get to the ones that I want.
If you poke the photo, you can see that the boxes are all neatly labeled. That really helps.
Lucille, thanks for the tip from your comment yesterday! I am going to pass it along. Probably most people know it already, but I didn't. Maybe others would like to know. She said, if you push the "Ctrl key" and the "+ key" at the same time, you can make the photos even larger on the photo page. I did not know that! By the way, to get your page back to normal just use the little magnifying symbol down on the bottom right and punch it back to 100%.
Anyway, you should be able to read the labels if you do that. I did notice that I missed the container with felt in it. Putting that on my "to do list" now.
I have a second bookcase done already this morning. I am labeling everything as I go and that takes a lot of time. Thank goodness for the Dymo label maker!
I only have four bookcases, the closet and various other nooks and crannys to go.... I promise that tomorrow I will start doing some kind of mini tutorial along with the cleaning, so that you won't get bored like Tessie.
She has been pouting all morning because I hid her bed.... She didn't bother to look in the townhouse... Oh well...
Back to cleaning. See you tomorrow.
