Office Organization

Hello!  Hope you are enjoying your weekend.  I have been doing lots of office organization and thought I would share some pictures.  No matter what, I always find I need to re-organize and haul out old stuff every few months or I get totally swamped in my little office.

My husband gave me my birthday present a few days early this week and so I took it as the perfect opportunity to get cleaning!  He made me a peg board similar in concept to one I saw in Paper Crafts Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters. I asked him to make one that would go with my office and here is what he made:



 Cool, ugh?  It holds a TON of stuff.  I have so many rhinestones and embellishments on this thing so now I can see what I have and USE it!

I also bought this organizer from Michael's because it was 40% off this weekend and all the craft organizing stuff was also 40% off so everything was super cheap!  The kids helped me to sort buttons for two hours on Thursday night! Ha! They didn't last long but I finally finished.  I don't think I will be using a button for awhile. Kind of hate them at the moment :)

So...this is what I have been up to.  I will have some projects to share this week, I promise!

Thanks for stopping by!

I've been eyeing those shelves at Mike's lately but I'm in an undeveloped basement right now and no where to hang it :( Maybe I should pick it up....just to have ;)

I thought of driving up to Michael's but didn't get there (it's a 1.5 hr. drive). 'Life' got in the way! Love your room, Cammie - looks like such a well organized, but very warm, homey, type room! Thanks for sharing, and don't EVER let that man go!!! He's a definite keeper :)

Great idea - and right in sight. that's how I like my stuff. Then I know what I have, and I'm more apt to USE it...

Donna said...

Wow! Your DH did a great job on that board and all that hard work of organizing will pay off in time savings. Happy Birthday to you! Have a wonderful week.

Since you are in the groove of cleaning/organizing, why don't you come visit me?!! It's the perfect time to clean my area (as a bomb went off in it recently!!)
Love the peg board idea!!

Your peg board is chic! And I can imagine how much space it has freed. Organizing can be fun and storage can be made stylish.
