Pins #77-#80: Hey Girl, Let’s Laminate

June 18, 2013

Pin #77: Hey Girl…

Ok, if you’re not already laughing, this post is not for you.  How funny is this?  I pinned this after seeing it right after I bought a laminator at Costco and right after my husband’s response was “awesome. I’ve always dreamed of owning a laminator, we soooo needed one.”  (Total dead pan voice).  Of course he laughed and chalked it up to yet another thing he doesn’t understand, but I have confidence it will be another thing he’ll appreciate when the end product is in front of his face.  So back to Ryan Gosling.  I pinned this also around the same time my girlfriends and I spent the weekend away watching one of his movies no less than 4 times in 48 hours…..and we are not even teenagers!   Read more about that awesome trip on No Umbrella: The Seattle Travel Blog, written by my friend Ali. Ok…if we must, back to laminating crap.

So, this is not a post about organizing, simply about preparing to organize using a laminator.  I’m close to being somewhat organized but still miles away from where I’d feel super good about it.  I printed out the above labels for pantry items, kids craft supply items and general ones with just all of names so we could label baskets, etc. designated for each person.  Then, laminated.  They are up and glorious in the pantry and with the kids crafts – but I’ll save those photos for part two of this which will be an organization post.



As part of this massive lamination spree I also laminated some cool handwriting exercises I made for Luca.  We really believe in play based pre-school, therefore he’s had almost zero practice writing.  I thought it was time to at least introduce it as a fun activity.


Pin #79: Laminated Dry Erase Letter Writing Practice

I had this set of super cute ABC animal stickers that I wanted to do something special with for the longest time.  When I saw this pin, I thought this would be the perfect use for them.



Finally, we just got an extra freezer and I’m going to need all the help I can get to not lose stuff or waste food that goes in the freezer.  I found this awesome guide (Pin #80), laminated it and posted it above the freezer.  It tells you how long you can freeze tons of things and how to freeze them properly.

80 down…20 to go….
