Randomness

This shot typifies my overall organization skills. Somewhat lacking.
I'm not even sure how this got here. Those darned kids!

I was reading someone's blog yesterday (Xazmin at This is the Year), and she showed her before and after of her cabinet, which inspired me to do this:

And this....Somewhat better...maybe? It may have helped more than anything that I combined the 5 bottles of Lawry's seasoning salt, and the 3 containers of cinnamon.
We'll see how long it lasts.
On a completely unrelated topic I made another diaper cake for a co-worker's upcoming baby shower.

I love the giant ric-rac. She seemed to like it.

I'm thinking of quitting my day job and becoming a full time cabinet organizer/diaper cake maker. Which means I'll probably need to come live with you...clear out a room!

Dinner last night...

Ravioli with Herbed Walnut Sauce found at Epicurious. Sounds much better than it is. But it was very quick...there's always something to be said for that.

That ends the randomness for now. Thanks for enduring!

Dinner did look great and so did the cabinets! I have never thought to take a before and after. I usually just get so sick of it I tear into it. Next time I need to plan ahead :-)

Yerah quit your day job! I think there is a market for a full time diaper cake maker.

Great organizing and the diaper cake is adorable! Your dinner looked yummy too. I haven't cooked at all lately. Well, chicken tacos that I threw in the crockpot tonight. The flu really takes it out of a person!

I agree. Love that giant ric rac. Your cabinets look great. You can have a room - but you will need to clean out and organize my cabinets first.

It was me! It was me! You commented on my spice cupboard post. Labeling the tops...genius, eh? I love, love, LOVE the diaper cake - it is too adorable! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Julie said...

Aha...thanks for letting me know, and thanks for the inspiration!

The pantry is the bane of my cooking! I am so unorganized. I would probably be shocked it I actually went through there and saw what was in the back. Yes, perhaps this is the year.

That diaper cake is so cool. I love the giant ric-rak too. Congrats on organizing your cabinet. I enjoyed the before and after pics. What exactly is Kite tobacco? Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

That is too funny . . . just last week I re-organized my cabinet and took pictures of how beautiful it is to put on the blog!!

Isn't it the best feeling to open up the door and see how nice it looks!!!
