I've had my P-Touch for a number of years but I limit my use because I found that I rearranged too often for it to be price efficient. Still love it, however.

I think I'll stay out of Margo's way for a while, or I'll suddenly find a label stuck on my bum. :)

I've been "lurking" and following the challenges, getting lots of ideas for when I can finally convert a spare bedroom to my quilting room (have one son to move back out first!). This is really random, but know many of us like the P-Touch labeler to help organize our stuff....just wanted to pass on that Office Max has the P-Touch for 75% off for another 3 days or so as part of their President's Day Sale....it is $9.95 locally and I'll be making a trip there after work tomorrow....thought some of you might be interested in this deal!

Oh man....would you believe that I purchased one TODAY!! At full price!! :cry:

Oh well...with the recent increase in gas prices, I don't need to be driving 25 minutes each way to get to office max! Thanks for the heads up!

Thanks Cheryl. They are just assemble-it-yourself melamine units that I bought years ago at a home improvement store. Here are my two other units like the one I've just organized that I have most of my fabric in, but I've added some extra shelves to make more efficient use of every bit of the space, and I also have plastic bins stacked on the tops. You can see the stuff inside the cabinets and also see how I folded my fabric for these shelves here: http://good-times.webshots.com/album/563306368ujRyrP

Fantastic. Guess I need to take a trip to the store and get some measurements to make a plan.

Margo, okay joking aside. what cabinets do you have in your room? I am in the process of deciding on cabinets for "stuff" and I like to looks of you drawers. Floor to ceiling I need a deep cabinet to hold my containers of projects for quilting, and scrap booking.

Nice, two weeks of easy stuff. I have large amounts of fabric on the bolts neatly stacked, along with scrapbook papers in their containers. Once again nothing to do there. Keep looking Margo and maybe you will find my mess.

Looks great Margo. I love the border on your wall.

Thanks Debbie! It's a quilting stencil marked with a Sharpie Marker! The border design was done with paint and blue painter's tape to mask it off! Easy-Peasy!

Because I can only do 3 photos in each text box, here are the rest.

Here is the re-stocked cabinet and the cleared off surfaces! OMYGOSH!! It looks nekked!! :lol: I'm sure there will be something there by tomorrow! :wink:

Attachment {!-- ia1 -->100_4601.jpg{!-- ia1 --> not found



And here is the stuff that was culled. The stuff in the green bags is destined for a neighbor who sews for her grandchildren. Juvenile fabrics and patterns.
The white can is stuff for the trash. It feels great!
