Organization!!!!

What's the best thing to do in the middle of the night when you can't sleep........organize all the cross stitch magazines. Yes that means seperating them from all the other kinds of craft magazines and other magazines. So what did I do with them...well I sorted them by title and then year. I put them in gallon zip bags and lined them up on the bottom shelf of my bookcase. Now when I am looking for a magazine I don't have to search. Or when I want to look at a bunch I don't have to worry about them getting separated. Also that let's me know which ones I'm missing. Stoney Creek magazine has afghan series and I want to get the ones I'm missing so I can do them. It works so well plus I don't have to worry about the magazines getting damaged.

Yesterday I was on a cleaning kick after I went to look for a bag to put my magazines in. This is funny it all turned into a full days work.

1. Found bag to put magazines in but they had my flutes in it....
2. Rehomed the flutes but next to where I put them I saw two dusty things that needed to go onto the wall....
3. Used wood orange oil on the frames and cleaned the frames and washed the mirror to hang on the wall....
4. Hung up Spartans stained glass picture.....
5. Broke mug when bumped into it on the way out of the nook where I hung stained glass picture......
6. Swept up broken stoneware mug but saw floor was full of dog hair....
7. So swept kitchen floor....
8. Saw entryway/laundry room walls were terribly dirty so got out the Pine Sol and washed them up....
9. Now its dinnertime so I'm cooking dinner....
10. Put WOCS and Stoney Creek magazines in bag that started this whole fiasco....

Later that night.....
11. Brought bag in bedroom to look at magazines and found another Stoney Creek to add to it and saw magazines were a mess and you know the rest ....


But I LOVE the result and I feel really good about it.

  1. ROFL, it's that kind of thing that stops me being organised! I want to sort the lounge out but can't until the bedroom cupboard has space and I can't do that because I need to ebay some stuff and some is being saved for the Xmas Fayre etc etc.....

  2. Great idea but I have a huge tub full and no where else to put them! I have been know to rearrange furniture late art night. Jack's look is always priceless after that. Not doing that anymore but it was fun.

  3. That sounds so typical! Start one project and more and more and more things happen to distract you! Great job for getting it all done after all.
