Finlee and Me Product Review #2


Do you know what totally does my head in?

Miss 10 fossicking through cupboards and shelves EVERY. SINGLE. AFTERNOON looking for a pen or pencil with which to do her homework.....seriously where is the pen/pencil that she used yesterday or the million dollars worth of stationery that I purchased at the beginning of the year??  Argh it does my head in!!!

In addition to that there is Miss 6 constantly wanting me to find the scissors that she lost yesterday and Miss 14 needing glue, Miss 16 in need of paperclips and Miss 17 always hunting for bulldog clips........it's surprising that I haven't been committed to some sort of institution with padded walls!!!!

But thanks to Angela over at Finlee and Me my problems have been solved!!

I got my hands on this wonderful Craft Turntable to review and promptly turned it into a bit of a homework caddy.....






Filled it with pens, pencils, textas, paper clips, bulldog clips, glue stick, sharpener, rubber, ruler, tape and scissors......that's gotta have us covered hasn't it!!!





So now each afternoon I pop the Craft Turntable (aka homework caddy!!) onto the table and the girls sit down and get stuck into their homework.  It works perfectly placed in the middle of the table since it can be rotated around so the girls can get what they need....on top of that the removable buckets make it easy for one person to take say the coloured pencils bucket if they are colouring in for the long haul.





When they are finished their homework the Craft Turntable returns to the vault under lock and key because we all know how stationery items can grow legs and disappear!!

You can buy your very own Craft Turntable here for only $31.95.....a small price to pay for one's sanity!!  

And whilst I am in love with the red you can also get them in blue or pink. Maybe you should grab one for the kids and one for your own personal craft supplies....I mean how good would this be loaded with thread, bobbins, unpickers, fabric scissors.....imagine it.... organised craft supplies.!!

While you're over at Finlee and Me make sure you take a look at their other fantastic items like the Wooden Noughts and Crosses and Make a Match Memory Game that I reviewed here.

And be sure to follow Finlee and Me on facebook and instagram too so you don't miss a thing!



Make sure you keep an eye out for next months product review!

  1. Oh I bought one of these a little while ago to tidy up my girls' craft table. It looks great and work a treat! So easy for them to grab what they need and pop everything back where it belongs.

  2. I absolutely get your frustration! We've got all supplies in cannisters too and it's so much easier than constantly searching.

  4. This is such a great idea! And you are so right... I swear there's a secret spot in the house somewhere where all the missing pencils and Texas are hiding!

  7. Oh I have seen these and it is great to hear that these are a good buy! I like the idea of being organised but often wondered whether it would stay organised with a toddler! Great reviews! Must go out and get one for the craft-loving toddler now!
