New Toys!

Santa was good to my organizational side this year!  (and by Santa, I mean my hubby)

I've got some new toys and I am excited to show you what I've been doing with them!

First and foremost is my new label maker. 

I heart this label maker. I've had a basic $15 Dymo handheld label maker for a while and it did great things for me. But I was ready for the next step.

My other new toy is a laminator!

Thanks to several other blogs going crazy with the labels and the Washi tape, added to the fact that I've got dogs and dirt, having my signs and labels protected in some way seemed like the smart thing to do. 

Between these two babies, my office/dog room and my spare bedroom are in for a complete makeover.

I might have also spent a good chunk of my Christmas gift cards on organizing stuff, like baskets and bins. It seems kind of oxymoron-esque to be bringing all of this stuff into the house in order to make the house look less cluttered and more organized... But I have to trust the system. Plus for every single item that came in, one old item must go out. So I guess that helps.

Oh I always feel like organizing/purging at this time of the year. That inspiration picture is a great jumping off point! I know how frustrating it is when you get something clean and nice looking only to have it completely disorganized too "craft" room is one of those spaces.
I got a labeler Christmas 2012 and I love it. : )
