Remember the message book I altered yesterday?
Well I decided to put a label on it. It just seemed to plain without one.
I took a tag from 7 Gypsies. I then backed the tag with black card stock and then with white card stock.
I think this tag is appropriate for this message book.
I also like that I can uncoil the front cover and put it on a new one when this one is full.
I just want to tell all of you that thought it was a long drawn out pain to uncoil the binding. It was so easy. It was punching the tiny hole that took the time.
Step 1 to "Defunkifying my life".
Now the first challenge was to organize a junk drawer. Funny thing is, this could take up the whole 21 days for me, as I have so many junk drawers, lol.
I wanted to tackle my mail area.
I have a drawer in my kitchen that is dedicated to mail. I even made wooden dividers in it.
But the mail doesn't seem to get past this cabinet anymore.
So I wanted to figure something out to keep it organized as well as pretty.
What I did was purchase this hanging file folder and this mail sorter from Staples.
They are 2 separate pieces. I added some non-slip mat underneath so it stays put.
I also added our family calender in the back.
The mail sorter has 3 slots and one teeny tiny one. The higher one is for company business and holds the message book, the next one down will hold the company's tickets and such that aren't mine and need to go to their rightful owners ;)
The last mail sorter slot is for bills that need to be paid. Notice it is empty :)
Yes they are all labeled ;)
Everyone in the family has their own file folder. I also made a file for Company papers that I need for month end.
I also have a blank file just for an extra.
I made each tab in that persons favourite colour :)
So when the mail comes in, I will slip it into their file folder and then they are responsible to check their file.
Here is the cabinet all nice and neat :)
Is it odd that this makes me soooo happy. Seriously nothing makes me happier then organization. Well I am sure there are a few things, but this is up there in the top 5 :)
See that drawer, that is my next thing to de-funkify. It is my stationary drawer. I am in there (as well as everyone else) many times a day.
I have organized this probably last year, and boy does it need it again :)
Onto My Day:
Wayne and I went out early this morning.
Well it was early for me, its the weekend, a day to sleep in ;)
I ran out and picked up some flowers and such for the pretty container you see on my cabinet.
I will share with you how I did this tomorrow. Don't want to over stimulate you, lol.
Hope you all enjoyed a creative Sunday :)
