I can’t stop…..

Organizing that is….or at least thinking about it.  I get nibbled by the organizing bug a couple of times a year and this is one of them.  Must be all the sales on totes this time of year. 

I’ve had Organize and Decorate Everything in my FFF (future feature file) for awhile now.  Seems like the perfect time for her TCB debut, don’t you think.

Her site is full of great ideas on how to organize for pretty much anything and everything.  Like using shoe organizers for many many different uses.  You have to visit her site to see. (psst….I use mine as a first aid supplies upstairs in my linen supply closet)sany0155-150x150She knows her stuff……she’s got eight kids from crying out loud…….you’d have to be organized, or you’d forget to feed one of them.  Well, I would anyway.  If I had eight kids, I would easily be the poster child for that T-shirt that says “I forgot the baby on the bus”.  Having only one child, it’s hard to forget……so far I’m doing good. 

You can also pick up some fun creative crafty ideas too.   Sounds like a heavenly site doesn’t it?

Shhh……I won’t tell, but I am guessing there may be a couple of you that still  haven’t put away Christmas.  Shhhhh….Well she may be perfect at getting you started.  I wish I would have read her post before throwing all my stuff in totes.  It’s a free for all here……and I actually wrote myself a note to remind myself to re-organize EVERYTHING next year when I pull them out.  I did.  I love this idea with the plastic cups.  Perfect for organizing all those delicate ornaments.SS859903-300x225Place more tissue on top and they are nestled in for another year. SS859922-300x225Ziplock bags are our friends!  I actually use many ziplock bags with my holiday decor storage…….glad I’m doing something right.SS859924-300x225

Adding to our theme yesterday…….organizing our craft supplies, she’s got a few ideas that you can implement today.  Always love the basket storing wrapping paper idea.  Looks pretty too.SS859721-225x300Look at her purdy craft drawers.  I wanna see inside.  SS859770-300x225She makes fun stuff in this little area of hers.  I’ve seen these darling clips several places now.  I’ve been been sent some from one of my features.  Such a great gift idea or perfect way to dress up any memo board.  You can use paper or fabric.SS859636-300x225She uses hers on these cute tins…….Darling isn’t it?SS859648-225x300What I love about writing TCB and cruising around for creative blogs, is I am sometimes reminded of crafts I want to do.  I have ALWAYS wanted to do this……ALWAYS.  And I still haven’t.  SS857535-300x225Make desert stands, cake stands from Goodwill plates and vases.  What a beautiful way to recycle.  She shows a tutorial……TUTORIAL!SS8575071-225x300I’m happy to see that paint is also her friend.  You know how I like to paint things.  SS859944-300x225She found these snow flakes and decided they needed to be white…….like real snowflakes…..she added them along with a darling winter banner to her mantle for her winter decor. SS859943-300x225      Can you handle one more idea?  This is another one I keep meaning to do.  A place to hang your earrings.  A pretty place to hang your earrings.  She made it.  She’ll show you too.


   Now go make me look good…….go leave her a ton of comments!


This post sponsored by these ladies….not only did they help pay for my husbands car ignition, they helped pay to fix my washer…..I was THIS close to having them pay for a new set…..Dang.

That thrown me into a spasm...being naturally unorganised, I can appreciate a good bit of organisation from others but that was one step too far and I have found myself throwing things sround and messing everything up in a fiercely adverse reaction.

not really
