It really doesn't take that much to understand, that sorted things are easier to use than piles marked with miscellaneous. I get those bursts of organizing-enthusiasm every now and then, and start sorting things with fury. The rest of the house is pretty much in order already (my mantra being a place for everything - everything in its place), and there's not that much clutter anywhere anymore (a huge achievement, I love things), but my studio...
I know it is a real false advertising to show only those I think I am clever- solutions to you, but whilst we still are in progress to make everything functional (and pretty, my claim), I am not happy to show you around too much. But soon, I
I found three different sized wooden trays (meant for knives, apparently) while thrifting the other day, and got one of my Martha-moments. I purchased all three (I know, you should be getting rid of the stuff not buying extra thingies to store them but) and wow! I have a shipping station now!

I can't tell you how many times just before Post closes I have been hunting for a stamp/glue/priority sticker and then with a rush-rush-rush biked after the Mail-truck to get my parcel in still. You all lovely people who have bought my handmades are so close to my hear that I want always ship asap but that has nearly killed me, really. Not anymore.
The other two trays are still in progress. One is full of sewing threads and the other has buttons, but that might still change. The very though of those trays make me happy still, as I know they'll eventually be in great use making my life easier. Love it.
I also am emptying my shop shelves, and for one week (8.6.2014 - 15.6.2014) all my wool-felted handmades are -40%! Oh yes, there's time to get those pretties moving, so I can fill the space with new designs. There's no coupon code of any sort needed, all felts are stocked in one place here, and the prices have been marked down already. Only shipping fees remain the usual, but will be combined should there be multiple purchases. So please feel most welcome to have a look, thank you!
Happy Sunday, everyone!
