Love is in the details

Trying to get organized more and more each day. Today I want to tackle
the pantry and kitchen cabinets. I love to organize and feel like a weight
has been lifted off of me when I open a beautiful and orderly drawer, cabinet,etc.
More than this I love to label things. I will label anything that will hold still
long enough, and not just any label either. I love to create labels and make
up things to print out on my p-touch machine.  I think this is the "Martha"
in me. Love is in the details...you know it's true. I get complete and absolute 
joy out of creating things and doing things in a very detailed manner.
It is not always easy but I love it. I so enjoy making everything in my path
beautiful for myself and my family to enjoy.
Sometimes it comes out through my photography, sometimes through
my flower arrangements, sometimes through my party planning, other
times through teachings and writings and almost daily in my parenting with
my children. I love to think outside the box. To do things and create
things that are new, fresh and that strike beautiful emotions in others.
Love IS in the details.

Oh, how I wish I was that organized! I did a post about this. My boys (husband included) are like 'bulls in a china shop'. When I organize, they tear apart and I go nuts. So, over the years, I've lightened up in the organizational field so I don't act like Joan Crawford. Labels are good. I would love to see the ones you made.
Thanks for commenting on my blog!
AND, congratulations on your new gift! God is good. :)
