Twas the night before the night before....

and my house is manic and a mouse wouldn't last a second with the two cats!!  I seem to spend a lot of time putting ornaments back on the tree... I find them in the oddest places... in Pandora's new chair for one!!

I had it made by the compound joiner who made the cat houses for the porch... isn't it cute?  Oh and for those who are wondering... yes, it is in the main bathroom and she hasn't been banished or anything... just that when there were five little kittens it was the safest place to put them if I had to keep them inside and Pandy obviously remembers this because come 8.30 pm in the evening she takes herself off to the bathroom for her last food and quiet nights sleep! At least now she can do it in style!! ;)

One of the most under-used portions of my stash is my clear stamps and I think it is because they were always in a big tupperware tub in the bottom of the cupboard and therefore not that easy to get to or sort through.  So I have made myself a couple of stamp albums!!

I found some sturdy plastic pockets in the bookstore and have now sorted all my clear stamps into pockets and bound them into two albums which hopefully means that all I have to do is get a book out and flip through it to find the stamp I want to use.

OK, so that's what I have been up to, so I guess I had better now get on with wrapping some pressies and giving the house a good clean through or Santa will be popping his head round the door and leaving in horror!!


  1. Great storage idea. I think I'm like Pandora - when the going gets a litle tiring, I head to the bath!
