I don't know if you got the gist by now, but I've been getting in touch more and more lately with my arts and craft side. On my blogiversary, I told you guys I wanted to head in a different direction with my bloggy blog... one of the ways being to pay it forward and be of service to you wonderful people! I hope me crafting and showing some easy peasy ideas has inspired you to take time out of your busy schedules to partake in fun times! So here I am... taking my job serious and making initiative to make the time for my DIY Sundays!
I pulled down my arts and craft box about a month ago, and it's been sitting on our kitchen table in a hot mess (want proof?? see the MESSY pic below!). Hubs and I have been eating on the couches because of the lack of open space on the kitchen table (whatta sport he be!). It stayed on the kitchen table for about 3 weeks... I just didn't have the energy to sort through it all, or any idea of where to begin!
THEN... one day while clicking blog after blog, I discovered one of my most faves to read nowadays! IHeart Organizing... right up my ally!!! Jen blogs about different ways to organize... and in style! I came across her post about recycling and using cereal boxes as drawer dividers. BOOM!! There goes my starting point for my arts and craft box! I knew I had to create compartments to separate my items. And what better way to do this other than using things I can recycle and already had in the house?? I even took the cereal box idea a step further, and used other boxes/containers I knew would fit just right!
Even though these dividers would be sitting in my arts and craft box, I still wanted to cover up what I was able to with some wrapping paper and material I had! After all, my craft box is clear and you can see a peep of the sides of the containers!
After wrapping these bad boys up, I was ready to organize this chaos! It was like trying to fit puzzle pieces together the best way possible. Moving things here and there, I finally found the best layout and ran with it!
I swear to you... having things in their own "home" makes my crafting so much easier. I can actually see everything I have, and utilize things I forgot about because they were hiding under my layers and layers of stickers! I even utilized this little bag my sweet hubs picked up for me for the doodads that don't fit in my box! The pockets are zeee bayyyyst!
Friends... I encourage you to chiggity check Jen's blog out and get your wheels turning as to how get chyo' life organized!
