Awwww!!!!!...Organization!!!!







You've got to love organization especially when you can hide it away....My chair, I x-stitch in, always gets piled up against my best efforts to not let it get that way....So, with the make-do "cabinet" I can hide my favorite primitive books and magazines....That allows space in the wooden box i keep beside my chair, that use to sit in front of the fireplace, before we got the electric fireplace.....Now the wooden box houses some of my notebooks of x-stitch patterns and current magazines I'm looking at...I THINK Tim is going to like it, too since it cleans up the area....LOL

In the 3 stacked boxes are my sewing box, scraps of x-stitch fabric, etc. close at hand....

Like I said before, it clears out a big area in my big cabinet that is next to my work table,but I'm sure I will find something else to put in there...lol 

Don't you love it when a plan comes together??!!??...And when you get alot done in a day?

Until next time~~hugs,Jen

Jen, You always have the BEST ideas and your home just gets better and better ALL the time. If I went to visit I told my husband you would have to kick me out, LOL!!!

I also want you to know that I am still praying for Heather, you and the whole family!

You and your family are not far from my mind.
I think it is important to let people know when they have lost someone(but really didn't they are with our Lord) but the pain here on earth is still in our hearts. I am still praying and I am praying for your brother STILL!

I am praying he is doing better!

Prim Blessings to you Jen,
Tricia XOXO

Great idea with the wood box next to your chair. I sit in a love seat to do some of my handwork, and that area is always upside down. I will have to try something like that. Thanks for sharing your idea. Vicky

I love the organization and it looks wonderful too!!! But how on earth do you keep your little one from getting into it? All of my stuff has to be put up high and hid away :)
