Label makers and frying pans. What do these have in common? I got both of them for Christmas! It’s funny how what is exciting changes in life. Like when I was 3 years old if I got candy I would be so excited! When I was a teenager I got my very own boom box(radio/cassette player for you youngsters), it was one of the most memorable Christmas’s for me. Later, as a young bride, my new husband gave me jewelry and I felt like a princess. Then several several years later, there was a Christmas that I got a ton of plastic storage totes from my thoughtful husband.(Those things are expensive people! It was a great present!!!)
This year, I got lots of great presents. But honestly, my favorite present was this…
That’s right. An old school manual label maker but mine is in black and grey instead of the above festive colors.
I heart it none-the-less! I’ve found the older I get and the smaller a home I’m living in makes me like organizing more and more. And what’s the point of separating and grouping like items together to put in a dedicated place/box and then not know what in the world is in the box unless you open it. Annoying right?
So this little label maker is already being put to good use. I have a big storage area of cabinets in our dining area. Most of the kiddy craft stuff is separated in boxes on the shelves. I used to have old paper labels that would just keep falling off the front which was annoying plus not uniform and pretty. I’m loving it even more now!
Alrighty, it’s not that obvious with my sad photos taken with my phone that doesn’t have enough memory to download Instagram. No kidding, I can’t download the instagram ap! arrgh! But I promise… It looks much better! Especially for a messy OCD gal like me. 🙂
Ok, so Frying Pan… I’ve been making my pancakes on a very heavy cast iron pan for a long time. So when my parents got me the lightweight pan that’s very nonstick. The things practically slid off onto the plate!
What was your favorite thing you received this year? Let me know in the comments below. 🙂
