My Woodland Creature Obsession

I'm obsessed with the idea of a woodland nursery.  My friend Liz ( got a print of this amazing this image:

forest animals, woodland art, dancing animals, forest friends, woodland nursery,snow, laser print, 11x14 standard frame size print

 from this shop on Etsy, and I couldn't move quickly enough to gather every whimsical image of woodland creatures possible.  I made these just to add more stuff to the bin labeled "Woodland Nursery," for my children who do not yet exist.

I am very particular about how things are organized.  I have all of my books, CDs, and DVDs alphabetized.  All of my clothes are organized by color, and within color sections, by sleeve length.  Even my underwear drawer is organized by type and color.  It's that serious.

My husband and I have extensively discussed what to do about DVD storage once we move.  It always ends with him wanting to get rid of all of the cases to save space, and with me not wanting to let go.  When I found this Pin, something in me changed.  This woman's blog is wonderful.  I'll soon be purchasing the fabric to make this happen:

I haven't made much progress to this point.  So far I have DVD sleeves and binders purchased, which I thought would be much more expensive (I found them on clearance for $2.50 apiece!).  I needed more than four, obviously...

Our binders will be categorized by letter.  While I like the idea of genre separation, my husband and I have very different ways of classifying movies.  Also, I want finding a specific film to be a quick process.

I'll be purchasing the same Martha Stewart Book Plates at Staples.  I need to find a pattern/fabric that will be durable and also go well with our style, no matter where we move.  I like the French ticking Iesha chose, because it's pretty and timeless.

Once the process of recycling the cases and transferring our discs to sleeves is complete, I'll share before and after photos.

Happy Spring cleaning!
