From Trash to Treasure!

Good Morning!
So.... The bf has a friend that cleans out houses after people move out.... And he's always trying to bring me Good junk! However the bf is not for for having junk, so when the friend asks, the bf normally answers No before I can get a word in, lol. ( I do have to agree with him, I do have a lot of Junk, already)..... But the other day, when the bf had stepped out of the room, I told the friend to Stop asking, and just bring it! LOL

I was sooooo glad he listened!

Cause look at what he found! It had it's own labels on it, which I replaced with scrapbooking stickers.... I really needed something to get organized, and this is just Perfect! The top drawer is labeled.... My Life Right Now.... It houses my ruler, out going mail....pens, picture taking stuff....

**Oh... and it was full of craft supplies:) Paint, polymer clay, Beads, more beads.... a paper making kit... a bead weaving loom.... clay molds.... Lots of goodies:)

The second drawer reads " Confidential information" ......... It houses 'the books'.... my records, stickers, thank-you cards....

The next one Reads: Items Listed... So I can keep track of what's on my Etsy page...

Then there's the drawer for Shipping... packing material, bags, tape......


Then there's the 2B Listed drawer. These are items that need to be put online....

And the last one is my UFO drawer. LOL... All that unfinished stuff that needs it's finally step to be put online.... For example... I have gnomes that need gardens... so this stuff will go in here until I can get er' done......

I'm just so pleased to have a portable area that I can use to work with:)

Now..... You ready for some kitty pics??
I just couldn't resist this one! Isn't Wilbur soooo cute when he sleeps? I love how he has his paw up around his head, with his mouth wide open.....


Look at ole bright eyes.... He sits here when I'm on the computer, unless my lap is free~ then he wants to be right next to me... Him and Freddy have been competing all week for my lap! And sometimes they both get to sit in my lap while I blog.... I love them an all, but can't they give a girl a break??


*And what do you do when your grandchildren won't behave???
You sit on them!! LOL
Too funny!


Well, Alrighty then.... I'm off to go work on some birdhouses... I've made some Halloween ones, just have to put the finishing touches on them before I can show you. :)

So....
Until Next Time

Great find by your friend. Love how you've used the scrapbooking stickers to label the drawers, clever idea. I should really do the same with mine..
Love the kitty pictures...xxxx

Katie, that last photo is just too funny! Poor baby kitty.

I have several of those drawer sets like you just got. They are the best ever! They hold lots of stuff and are easy to move around. Good going on telling the friend "Just Bring It!" LOL

Oh your kitty picks make me broody.

But I am worried a new kitten will make my 10 year old- cat-miserable......

But I so want a kitten again.

Actually your kitty is very much like my two boys. It must be a sign!

Heheheheh UFOs!! I like how you label those boxes . I must confess I am not a plastic person but they are the best for organising .

That pic of Wilbur looked a little Halloweeny and Friday the 13 or Fright Night!!! Too funny :)

You have got great finds!

Ps... could you tell me what this "LOL" means. I have faced it in so many blogs... I am not a native english speaker; would love to learn what it means! :)
Thanks.
Hugs

LOL Katie! I have the same problem at my house- especially as it gets colder. I am always saying "hey- can't I at least have room to move my hands!" My hubby says it's tough to be so loved :) I love your new drawers- what a great friend! Those eyes on Wilbur are something else- I bet he gets away with a lot of naughty stuff :)

HI Kikka.... LOL means Lots of Laughter!! :)
