Is it just me? Or is it harder to craft during the summertime? My kids aren’t even officially in school yet, but I’m having the hardest time finding the time and energy to sew, or even think creatively. It HAS been hot, so maybe I’ll just stick my head in the freezer.
I’ve been tagged by Ms. Bonnie for the Freezer Stash Flash. So here I go – I’m flashin’ my FREEZER. Welcome to the world’s most boring freezer. Why is it so boring, you ask? Well, the fact that I am extremely germ-phobic coupled with my anal tendencies to be organized, my freezer looks like this:
There were no real surprises here. I just adore the tupperware popsicle makers that were just handed down to me from a friend. We poured some orange juice in those for hot summer days. I also just got a huge bag of frozen blueberries from Tar-jay – they are always so big and yummy. That’s a special Sunday night treat for the boys – Dannon La Creme yogurt mixed with blueberries.
The oldest food item is some pie crusts from last Thanksgiving. The worst surprise? I forgot that I put some hamburger up there 2 weeks ago…and I’m not sure if I can bring myself to cook it for my family. I really prefer fresh meat.
See that little bunny tail on the bottom right? That’s our boo boo bunny and the best surprise is that I can’t remember the last time we used it.
And now that you all know how uptight I am about keeping things organized, let me just say that if you give me a label maker and some file folders, I can go to town. Look what I did to organize my patterns:
Now, of course, this doesn’t mean that my HOUSE is organized, it just means that when things around me are organized, I feel organized on the inside. Looking at this pattern file box gives me a sense of calm and I need several organized places around the house that give me that feeling. I think I’ll just stare at this box some more.
