Hello, and thank you for stopping by!

I have been busy the last couple of months trying to get all the spaces in my home more organized, get rid of the clutter, and have everything in its place.  One of the issues I have now that there are 3 adults getting mail at my house is where to put it all.  I have also been in the process of cleaning and organizing my craft room (still some work to do there), so I had this set of extra baskets that I love because they are beautiful, but they just didn't work in my craft room anymore.  So I decided they would be perfect for sorting the mail.

But I needed some way of identifying which basket is for who, so I decided to create a set of custom tags - one for each of us.  I used my banner dies and a lot of scraps and odds and ends I had laying around to make these, and I love how they turned out.  Even Baby approves!

This first one is for my daughter Michelle.  It was originally going to be mine, but then I realized the colors were just like her, so I put the "M" on it for her.  She loves it!

This one is for me.  It was originally going to be Michelle's, so I had already put the "m" on it, but then I just added the smaller alphabets for "mom" and made it mine.  It's my favorite anyway!  I love the pink and cream colors - so pretty!

This one is for Chris.  He's away at college, but there is always mail coming here for him, so I needed a place to keep it if I think it's something he will want to see.  This was my attempt at a masculine tag.

And one more of my sweet Baby.  Since this "miscellaneous" basket doesn't have a tag yet, she's decided this one is for her.

Eventually I am going to hang a shelf on the wall for these baskets above that Eiffel Tower picture in the background, but for now they are fine on this entryway table.

Thanks again for stopping by - love, hugs, and blessings to you!


  1. Cute idea & great execution! And your kitty will be so disappointed when you hang the baskets up high, lol! :^)
    Hugs, Penny

    1. Thanks Penny! I'm so slow at getting projects done that it will be awhile before Baby has to give up her baskets.


Thanks for the love - it makes my heart sing when I hear from my lovely friends!
