Get Going, Get Creative, Get Organized

Who says you have to use a labeler with plastic or paper labels? Now, don’t get me wrong – I do have a Brother labeler. And yes, I use it. However, sometimes labels should be fun and creative. Today I did a little shoemaker’s daughter kind of organization project: I organized the TV armoire. It desperately needed to be done, so I sorted, purged, made a list and measured. Then I packed up my son (with his Leapster) and we headed off to Ikea. So, see what you think.

This is the inside of the armoire now:

This is a closeup of one of the bins. I didn’t want to hand print labels with a Sharpie. I wanted something more out of the ordinary. So, I used an “antique type” stamp set to label the boxes. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out!

I think a shopping trip to russell+hazel is next. I think it’s time my plastic 3 ring binders and I parted ways. Besides, I’m completely inspired by Aby Garvey’s “Notes” binder and I’ve put it off long enough!

How can you get creative and organize your space?

  1. LOVE IT! I do really love the style of label. Simplicity is beautiful. Great Job!

    Now me… I think that (once unpacked) I would love to style up my creative space with a little basket/bin and “Aby” labels…
