|My alphabet props filing system|

Easy as ABC
I'm in the final stages of assembling props for my alphabet book. Last night I prepared to enter a bunch more items into my props filing system (a cardboard box containing big plastic bags, one for each letter). The pre-filing system involved a lot of piles all over my
study floor. Just when I had pretty much the entire floor covered, I ran out of steam and left things where they were for the night. It ultimately took me several hours to categorize all of the items and stow them appropriately. I was also making clear, legible, organized lists of what things I still had to find as I went along. I am about to type up a master copy of all the items on the list that I need to purchase and then it will be time to go treasure hunting at the toy stores! At this point, the letters B,C, and S are pretty much ready to go. I hope to start taking the photographs maybe even by the end of next week after I get done with a dog-sitting gig. It's always exciting to make some progress on a long-planned project!
