It’s the time for resolutions! Everyone is making them: think positive, exercise, eat healthy, worry less and more family time. Almost all of the lists that I’ve seen have included ORGANIZATION! Doesn’t it feel good to open the refrigerator and actually find what you are looking for? Or to dive into the bottom of your closet in search for the perfect shoes and find BOTH of them within a minute!
As all of you know, I do love my crafts and projects! I have amassed quite the stash of supplies! I know they say “a cluttered desk is the sign of genius” but this is WAY passed “cluttered”. To be totally honest, I currently spend most of my time LOOKING for things. And for goodness sake, if I do find one item that I am looking for I better not set it down-it will be sucked into a vortex and not seen again until I no longer need it! So… I have some work to do.
I would love to share with you some delicious ideas I found on Pintrest. These will go on my “big list” to tweak and hopefully put into effect as time allows in the next year.
First up: that huge box of Ribbon Revelry ribbon. I think I may be a ribbon addict. But really, I do so many ribbon projects-so I should just call it a (very pretty) necessity! This dandy little hanging device would be really easy to replicate. A dowel, rulers or paint stirrers and what looks like shower curtain hangers. This Mamie Jane is brilliant!
In my craft room I have shelves. I also have itty bitty embellishments of all sorts. AND I have a goodly supply of jars in the garage. Shelves + embellishments + jars =
My boxes of photos have teensie tiny little white labels on them. I really should take those boring, institutional looking rectangles off and add put my (hardly used) yarn supply to work with my glue gun! Instant personality and color!
I always have a bunch of little pieces of paper haphazardly strewn around my desk. A brightly painted salvaged window shutter-who would have thought?!
Do you lose cords like I lose cords? I am constantly teetering on one leg, leaning over my desk looking for the printer cable. Check this idea out:
So here is to getting started on the organizational part of your New Year’s resolutions! I am adding a few of the above to my list.
What are some organizational projects that you have on your list this year?
