Spicing Things Up

I've spent the past few days sorting all the stuff in my kitchen and doing a little organizing.  Things that I don't use are getting the boot.  I'm trying to make things look a little prettier-- if I'm going to living with everything exposed and in the open over the next weeks/months it might as well look somewhat attractive!  Really, you can make just about anything in your kitchen look great by putting it in a jar and by sticking a cute label on it.  Case in point...

My spices.


Gotta love those ikea spice jars and all those cute Martha Stewart labels from Staples.
I'm a fan.

I've already determined which drawer in the "new" kitchen will be my "spice drawer" and have asked my cabinet builder (aka husband) to build me a custom insert that will hold my newly organized spices :)

Well-- we (meaning Doug) have been ripping out cabinets and started smashing out the bulkhead over the weekend.  Progress!  And, I even ordered some of the cabinet hardware I'm planning on using... slowly but surely...

I have those jars but have been scratching my head how to label them - perfect! trust Martha to make just the right label. I need to head to Staples to get me some!
