Straightening Saturday - It's a new year

During the holidays my daughter suggested I watch this new episode on organizing.  The show was Tidying with Marie Kondo.  So I watched the one episode.  Then I realized it was something that will help people who does not know how to organize their home.  I am sure those of you who knows me and has been to our home, knows that I am Mrs. Organizer.  But I have to say that, although she has good ideas, I have my own way to fold, arrange and rearrange to make everything belong to its own place.  We have been in our home for over 1.5 years and I have re organized my pantry at least 4 times.  Last weekend I decided to more tidying up specifically the items that was given to me by our neighbor.  There were some Christmas decorations, wrappers, bags, etc.  I went through all the three bags in a couple of hours and kept only what is truly usable.  Then I straightened by sewing/craft room to have the items I need regularly be easily accessible.  There were also a box under my cutting table that needed some tidying up.  Once completed, I decided to do some sewing since I was getting excited about this new fabric I got last November.  Anyway, here's what I have accomplished when I get a little excited about a project.  I made a total of nine fabric pouch that can be used as a cosmetic case, pencil pouch, etc bag or whatever you need to get organized when you travel.
