I LOVE To Organize!

I love to organize things, I always have!  I think even as a kid there's nothing I loved more than putting things where they should be.  My books on my shelf are in alpha order by author, my DVD's are in alpha order by title.  My profession is even organizing, I'm a Library Technician!


My stash... boy oh boy its organized like there's no tomorrow!  After finishing up the JBW bear yesterday I realized my little "thread collecting" basket was full!  After I finish a project I put the floss into a little blue plastic basket I have and once its full or I can't find something I'm looking for I empty it out and organize all my floss and put it all back where it belongs.

Its like a zen moment for me.

I used to be a teacher-librarian, so I like to organise my floss as well - another sister stitcher! I am just reorganising all of mine using the stitchbow system. It is going to be really great when I finally finish. I intend to have all of the DMC floss at my fingertips.

Hugs, Kaye xoxox

I try to be organised - it just doesn't always work!

Carol said...

I think loving to organize is a requirement for working in a library, Dani--I'm the same way :)

I love to organize too! I'm a technical writer. My mom let me organize her fabric, and I'm looking forward to it!

Bette said...

Want to come to my house and organize my floss for me? I have everything else organized but can't seem to put the floss back where it belongs. I'd rather go out and buy new. LOL!

Gabriele said...

Can you all give a bit of that talent to me? :D
Greetings, Gabi

Sheila said...

I'm the same :)

Deborah said...

Please come to my House! My floss needs some help. Everything else is ok but the floss is a mess.

Carolyn NC said...

I normally do the same thing, but the room upstairs now with my mom and daughter's moves each...shudder!

Jodie said...

OMG can you PLEEEAAASSSSEEEEEEEE come organize my house and stash for me?! I'm organizationally challenged. I just throw stuff everywhere, it's awful. But I try soooo hard! I spend way too much time trying to be organized, and it never happens.

Lynn said...

My stash is organized. It's everything else that isn't!

Ginny said...

I love to be organized, too; at least with my craft stuff. It just makes you feel good to know where something is and to just be able to go and get it. I may have to try organizing my books and movies alphabetically...

Doris said...

oh, shame of me..i am a chaos...

Julie said...

Mostly organised in this house too

Daffycat said...

I love organizing things too. Mostly just stash...my books and DVDs are hoplessly haphazard on their shelves!

Karen said...

Wish I had this problem!

Angela said...

Aha! Now that explains why I like everything organized too....darn Library jobs!

My stash is mainly in a book shelf, the things that don't fit in the shelves are in containers which sit on the floor near the book shelf. I think I need a bigger book shelf!!!!

Melanie said...

I'm good with organizing crafty things but you have me beat with the books/dvds. Boy howdy do you ever. lol

Suzanne said...

My stash is super organised as well. I have a basket I put all the threads in and I had a great time yesterday putting them all back where they belong.

I want my DVD collection to be ordered as well, but the rest of the family mix them up constantly.
