The Office - Part II

Well, I haven't organized much, but I made a discovery last night that almost made me cry! While going through my mess of stuff and moving things around, I found this ...

They're my Happy Girl's footprints from the hospital. I had no idea I even had this and was always sad that I never had them. I had a c-section and thought maybe they just forgot the extra set for me with everything going on. While going through a folder of things given to me after I left the hospital, I found it. I was in a lot of pain, in a fog from all the drugs and extremely busy with 2 little ones that I guess I just never bothered to look through the folder. What a happy discovery - a true treasure.

Anyway, I've arranged the bins and boxes to maximize the amount of storage I have. It actually took some time to get it like this! Here's the result.

Much better than before, don't you think? I didn't photograph the lowest shelf because that will be changed. When all is said and done, I'm hoping for something like this.

Mr. T is working-at-home in the office so I can't work in there today. What can I do ... hmmm ...


  1. OK - couple of things - if you don't mind - and if you do - no biggy. About the baby foot prints. You said you were extremely busy with 2 little ones, does that mean twins or just 2 babies of different ages at home? Just being nosy - sorry. Sweet little prints - they grow up so fast - my girl is going to be a sophomore in COLLEGE and it's just a little (OK - a lot) scary!

    Next, your bins are just too cute and the colors are great! Makes you want to get in there and do some work. I'm re-doing my craft room which also does double duty as the computer room and Meghan (my daughter's) "play" room and I have a very specific look in mind and I'm just not going to settle!!

    Have a good one -

  2. Hi Lynette,
    No, not twins! My older daughter was 22 months old when I brought home my newborn. It was pretty chaotic there for a few months. ;-)

  3. That organization makes me swoon - well done.

  4. Oh! just take some time off and pull out that great print of those little feet and hug and kiss it. That is to cute....Sandi

  5. You've been busy- it looks great!

    Maybe you could frame the footprints and include them in the office redo? I love finding things that make me so happy- and living with them in full view guarantees a smile.

  6. Lovely! I love the bins, the color is awesome! I agree with Carolyn (above), about framing the footprints.
    Also, are you going to label those bins? I'm just being curious too.
    It looks great though! Good luck.

  7. Manuela,
    Yes, I plan to label the bins after I organize everything into them. I have such a mess of things to deal with but I'm making great progress. This project is long overdue.

    Framing the footprints is a great idea. The only problem is that I'm running out of wall space!
