Pardon the Interruption

We interrupt today's regular program for some Show and Tell I have been working on a few projects lately and I thought I'd share with you the finished products. **************************** First up: Found this while going through my purses a few weeks back. I put it in my sewing room, think- ing I'd use at some point for something. Turned it into this: a trivet holder.
Put it here because we no longer
have the large coffee maker that
held the trivets and we don't
drink coffee. I also got a new
clock for this corner of the cabinet.
*************************************
Second up:
A photo album for Miss Emily.
I divided the album into sections
starting with the baby shower and
going through year five. Each
section was labeled using scrap-
book paper as a backing and then
labeled: shower. first year etc.
Now Mom has a place for Em's
pictures as she grows up.
This started out as a baby book
but has evolved as a toddler book.
This is for my friend who adopted
a little girl from Guatemala a
couple of years ago. I'm behind
I know...
There are pages for her Mom,
Grandmother, family and friends,
school etc. It's kinda like a picture
book for Miss Mattea.
***********************************
Last but not least:
I have been wanting to redo
this small area in our dining
room for awhile. As you can
see we have "the leaning tower
of CD'S." I didn't want to take
up anymore space than the
tower did.
I found these storage boxes in
a variety of sizes at the Dollar
Tree. They are the foldable
type. I took two of the 10 x 10
boxes, organized the cd's into
categories and then put them in
the boxes with labels. The box on
the right has several categories so I
made divider cards for this
box.
I just realized two things:
1--these two pics should have
been flipped.
2--I didn't take a "after" pic.
Right now they are stacked one
on top of each other and then I
put them where the tower
was but I might trade the boxes
with the player.
Thaks for coming to my Show and
Tell.

  1. Doesn't it feel great to get some project accomplished and some things organized? I always sleep better on days when I feel like I have worked hard on my home.

  2. Gosh, if I'd known about "show and tell" I would have brought something. But, I haven't made anything nearly as nice/utile/functional as what you "brought" in forever. You've given me inspiration!!

    Best,
