Happy Pink Saturday!
A friend gave me a compliment saying: 'Even when your house is messy it still looks nice.' When I thought about it further it made sense. It's the way I organize my chaos. And believe me...my house can be quite the mess! But to keep my sanity and my projects (magazines, spy novels, holiday note cards, menus, anything!) organized...
I use trays.
It helps me keep what I'm working on in one location. If I want to change locations, I just pick up the tray and off I go. If I know my MIL is on her way over, it's a fast clean up. Just stack them to the side and it looks like you decorate that way!
I keep some stacked in this wicker shelf thing to hold magazine photos I love, card stock, printer paper, colored paper, etc. I also use wooden or metal vintage boxes to organize software, photos, flash drives, etc. My fav is the pink box with roses and the large rose knob. LOVE that knob!
When I sew, I have a tray that has sewing stuff I use all the time. Seam rippers, glue (yes, I sew with that...lol!) threads, etc.
This photo shows how I keep templates organized...this is the Faux Cathedral Window template I've covered with pink rose paper and the little squares to finish that project.
Solid colors would be beautiful too! Black or White, Red, Robins egg blue.
Use the trays as part of your decor or stacked in shelves, really keeps things out of site, organized and easy to reach...and it doesn't look too bad just sittin' around.
Why not make up some of these as Mixed Media Art? Decoupage them, add decals, vintage wallpapers, etc. It's really helped me keep up with all my crafty items without loosing my mind...At least I know where stuff is and that is half the game. The other half is making the junque look nice.
Well, that's my two cents for a Pink Saturday!
Hop on over to Beverly's and see the rest of the Pink Saturday fun!
Pink Hugs and have a lovely weekend!,
