Turntable Awesomeness

I am still trying to organize my world around here and I'm making some progress.  I had an idea for a project that needed a small turntable... so I bought one.  And then I was all, "This turntable is cool, I could use this for a bunch of other things."  So, my crafting ADD forced me to use the turntable for another purpose.  And now, I have to buy another one for the first project I was working on.  I'm gifted, I tell you.

I took my new turntable (which was only a few dollars on Amazon, score) and put some scrapbook paper on it.  Then I put three pails from the dollar spot at Target on the turntable and filled it with things that I find necessary: patterned scissors, colored markers, and pens.  Lots and lots of pens.

Now, I just sit at my desk and spin the turntable because apparently, I'm a five-year old.

  7. That is so funny! I found those same bins at Target but I was wondering how in the WORLD I was going to organize my pens. And I've been "decluttering" lately so I have found more and more pens....I do love a good pen/marker/pencil though...

    1. Oh nooooo.... No restraint here! I BOUGHT them- they're just still laying in the floor! Meanwhile, I'm like a kid in the candy store @ Office Depot and can't help buy new pens... Who does that?!?

  8. Oh, how funny! I'm afraid I am ADD also! The turn table looks GREAT! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures
