Some bracelet organizing

the after of my organizing marathon ~

all my bracelets were in a drawer...
I would go through it, pulling them all out to find the right one to wear.

I'm excellent at being unorganized...

not anymore!

of course it didn't start looking like this,

it started out as a black, velvet bracelet
 holder from Michael's.

Nice, but not for me.

So, I painted it...and then
Mod Podged burlap

It was looking a little too much like a bird perch...

so I added some embellishing

and got to work organizing them...

I never realized how many bracelets
I had until now!

My bracelets are very handy now!

Have a great weekend!

Picnic crate

Summer time... it's the time of year our weekends
are all booked up~
enjoying time with *family*friends & fun*
 I made this picnic crate
to haul *things* for our summer gatherings

It's staged here for the picture...

 it's been filled with chips,
paper plates, napkins, ketchup, mustard,
a table cloth, forks, knifes and everything else that will fit in it for a
weekend gathering~

The crate started out like this,
{from Joann's}
they had unfinished and white one's ~
  I went with
the white one

The paper napkins are from Tuesday Morning
I used the top layer of the napkin...
{there's 3 layers to a paper napkin}

 and Mod Podge'd it on the crate...

for a one-of-a-kind picnic crate!


 I'm loving this crate,

I can jam pack so much in here ~
and head off to a weekend gathering!
