Are you organized?

I love to organize. I like to work on projects that require putting things in order.


So over the weekend we took ALL of our DVDs and put them in order.


(they are in the hallway between the kitchen and the living room)


(VHS on a folding table to sort)

Then we bought more of these simple shelves for our odd bunch of VHS tapes and I put them in alphabetical order.


(putting the back on)

Movies are something we enjoy almost every night. We ‘plug one in’ and watch part of it while we relax in the evenings. Then we read before bedtime.


Don’t you love these little Adirondack chairs on top of the shelves?


Sweet JoAnn sent them in my box of birthday goodies.


The rest of the box was filled with handmade items for my dollies!


Can you believe the precious things she makes?

Thank you JoAnn!

Time to organize my doll clothes!

Do you like to put things in order?

JoAnn makes darling things! Lucky you! Yes, I do like to organize, as long as it's bookshelves or DVD shelves or making lists, lots of lists. I think my list making is some type of character quirk. LOL Have fun organizing your doll clothes, Diane. Sounds like a fun project. Organizing my pantry or laundry room is NOT fun, however.

I'm so glad you liked the little things I sent in your package - it was such fun to think up surprises.

I love to organize - I have special boxes for my embroidery floss, it is wound on little flat plastic bobbins and stored by color - I like plastic boxes (shoe box size and boot box size) in my studio for storing craft supplies - and I love to have my pantry organized.

Hope your day is happy and full of sunshine.

I have my dvds organized but they take up so much room! I saw a post where someone took them out of the cases and put them in a book of sleeves and I may just do that! If I put them in in alphabetical order, it would be easy to find them and I could donate my bookcase to my grands. And I do LOVE those little chairs....my sis in law has some in her yard that are pretty bright colors and they are so beautiful against the green grass.

I like to have things organized too. Those little chairs are so adorable! What a sweet package to receive from your friend. Thank you for your visit and your nice comment. Hope you are having a lovely day, Diane.


Diane said...

Yes, I organize things like that although I tend to do it by color or height. I'm so (fill in) that I printed little titles to go on the spines of my DVDs so they look more coordinated. Very cute goodies you received!

Barb said...

Hi Diane,

Enjoy your day,

I do like those little chairs (and the knitted items!). Here we call them Muskoka chairs ;) I love organizing, and since I redid my kitchen, I can't stop reorganizing the cupboards! Wendy x

It always feels better to be organized. Those little Adirondack chairs are too cute. I LOVE them.

This is a very inspiring post! I enjoy organizing books and DVDs, because they can be arranged in neat rows on bookshelves.
Yes, the chairs and the items for dolls are really lovely!

I have days when I get organized, then it all slips.

Stacey said...

I do like to put things in order...some things. Others I just ignore. :)

Musings from Kim K. said...

I have closets that need some serious organizing! Do you want to hop on a plane and visit MI? Hugs!!

Pamela Gordon said...

Sorting DVD's is something I need to do but I've been putting it off as I'm not sure whether to sort them alphabetically or by theme first. We certainly don't have as many as you do though! ;)

Diane, if you ever run out of things to organize in Florida, please feel free to come on up to Canada and dive right in! Love those Adirondack chairs, they are too cute and look perfect on your new shelf.
