What We Did Today

We've been living as if our entire house is the back room of a soap & candle company.  Our kitchen full of crock pots and tubs of oil, our dining room crowded with carry cases full of soap.  Our dining room table covered in candles.  Boxes of the stuff we use to set up our booth at craft shows.  We've been eating our meals at the coffee table in the living room.

We love what we do, and it all smells so good, so it hasn't been torturous, but it's a bit ridiculous.  We want to be able to have guests, after all.  And... y'know... be able to walk all the way around our dining room table.

So this morning, Eric went to Home Depot and bought some plywood to go with the 2x3 studs we already had. And now we have this!


Supplies and stock, all neatly arranged!  I love it.  This'll make it so much easier for us to find everything and keep track of what we've got and what supplies we need to buy and stock we need to make.  It'll make it quicker and easier for me to gather and pack your orders, too.

There are also two other places in the basement where there were already shelves built in, and those house our lye, salts, essential oils, candle molds, soap molds, and other supplies.

It's geeky, but I'm so excited!

yay for organizing! we just recently bought shelves for our closet to hide a bulk of my kids' toys so they weren't soooo strewn all over :) it's a good feeling!

Yeah, when I lived with my parents my room had two closets - one with a bar for clothes and the other with shelves for games & craft supplies.

That shelf looks great. I know what you mean about having stuff everywhere. That's what our house is like sometimes with soaps, butters and candles everywhere.
