Another ice storm left me housebound with both kids. Hurray for another pajama/hot cocoa day! We found many cozy ways to pass the hours, but our favorite was sorting our new treasures. I've saved a ton of egg cartons for future projects, and this was an immediate good use for one. We spread out our beach finds and organized them by type first, and then later by size. We all enjoyed this! While we sorted, we talked about our favorite moments during our trip.
What a spontaneous and easy activity for an inside day... if you happen to live where it's warm (don't rub it in too much)... egg cartons don't get any more portable and can be packed up and taken out to a blanket under a tree. Sort objects from nature, marbles, coins, etc. It's quiet, calming and offers the perfect opportunity for discussion.
Now, I'm inspired to tackle some bigger sorting projects... like my poor, desperate studio. It would take some GIANT egg cartons to handle all of its delicious piles( I mean treasures)! This will be my task today, as I ready myself for a very productive year. Speaking of studios... my mother set up the sweetest sewing corner while she was here. I'll be sharing pictures of that new nook in the barn studio very soon, just waiting for a sunny day! You're going to love it!
What are you sorting and organizing?
