The Perfect Prop


Filled and ready!

At long last I finished my recent photo album and finally caught up…until I grab the camera again. Before you gasp, I’m not finished but caught up. Thousands of photos await sorting but those are for other albums.

Seems as though all I needed was a small colorful cabinet I found in my hospital gift shop. As soon as I spotted it, my crush broke out. I spent days admiring it, picturing each drawer filed with my photo supplies, imagining my delight at simply closing the drawers when I finished a segment of the work. I started a little fund.

MY previous M.O. was to fill the dining room table with piles of pens, stickers, cutting tools and of course photos. After a few album pages, I needed the table back for something mundane like dinner so everything got piled away. Repeat over and over again. Often I missed an opportunity to get a little more done because of the effort involved in setting up and taking down.

Until the cabinet came home with me  🙂  I had so much fun filling the little drawers with my tools of the trade and just closing them when I finished. No more stacks of supplies on other tables!

Sometimes it is the simplest of props that gets the task done. Like colorful garden gloves for the planting project, cute stretchy pants for the spinning class, a new cookbook to invite dinner preparation, a handy bedside lamp for crawling into a fresh book. I am a big believer in the right props for each job.  See: Small Props = Big Help

What prop has helped you recently?

Hope for the Best,
