The Office Makeover: Craft Storage (Free Vintage Label Download)

Martha eat your heart out. I labeled 70 boxes yesterday with vintage-inspired labels.  It’s part of my big office makeover. I can’t show you the office yet because it’s a disaster. Anyway, it took almost all day to organize the boxes and create the labels but I feel really organized now:

The shelves were an early Christmas present from Mr. LBB.  This area is a hallway behind my office….technically it’s a “butler’s pantry” for serving food and storage but it’s the perfect area to store supplies right off my work area.  The wall space above the countertop was just empty space.  The area used to be a huge sunken living room before we remodeled a few years ago. We added a wall at the end of the room to create the storage space.

Here’s what it looked like two weeks ago:

Tips for Creating Simple and Timeless Photo Albums

Tips for Creating Simple and Timeless Photo Albums via lilblueboo.com

 

One of the most gratifying things for me is finishing up a yearly album.  I’m always usually about a year behind but that time allows me to make sure every photo is printed and organized.  I always seem to have random photos show up mid-year and it would drive me nuts if those weren’t in the yearly album.  Boo loves to keep me company while I put albums together because I talk about the photos as I go and tell stories:

After I did my How to Organize and Print YEARS worth of Photos tutorial I had numerous requests for a post on how I actually assemble my albums…..so I took photos as I finished 2010’s album up this weekend.  I always find that if you have YEARS worth of albums to make start with the most recent year you are ready to work on and move backwards. A few thoughts about album making before I start with the tips:

The Extreme Cabinet Makeover

So, I’m not sure any of you remember…..but RIGHT before I was diagnosed with cancer last year I was about to embark on a big interior makeover of our house. I like to do most things by myself….I love the challenge of a project. It’s been a little over a year now and I’ve decided it’s time to start again. There are lots of projects going on here but the first big one was this week when they took away my TV cabinet to refinish it. I’ll give you a hint of where I’m headed….I’m going from all beige and browns to all greys and whites….think Restoration Hardware.

Here’s the before:
