“Weekend Project!”

Sorry I haven’t been around for a few days! I have been enjoying watching the Australian Open Tennis, the usual jobs that need doing, organizing for J and Cody to stay here with me for a bit while their dad gets himself settled, enjoying time with the boys as school goes back here on Wednesday, visiting mum and dad, keeping out of the heat, getting my car fixed, and visiting a couple of friends. Β  πŸ™‚ Not much really!!

And……..mum and dads house has been sold in record time and I am wrapped it will all soon be settled! πŸ™‚

So this weekend I have been enjoying a bit of time out and a ‘off the page” project!Β  When we were cleaning the house I rescued a set of old cassette drawers that were going out as I thought I could make some sort of scrap storage out of them! πŸ™‚ I wasn’t sure what to use them for, but after a bit of blog hopping for some ideas and asking a couple of friends on Facebook for their ideas I came up with this! πŸ™‚

As you can see they are old-looking and a bit bland but I had

a plan……

IMG_1368-001With some pattern papers and some washi tape, I transformed them! πŸ™‚ I took the old wood grain laminate stuff off and they look much better! πŸ™‚

IMG_1372-001This shows inside the drawers. I used some cardboardΒ  from cereal boxes and the inserts from some packets of SU DSP, cut to the size of a cassette case and wound my ribbons, twines etc on them and secured with pins! πŸ™‚

IMG_1420-001And this is now my useful drawers on my desk and in arms reach! My craft caddy sits on top also. All sorted by colour, labeled and ready to use.Β  It was amazing what I had forgotten I had! It will be nice to use some of the lovely ribbons and trims that I have received through friends and swaps πŸ™‚

I wonder what you have at home that you can transform! πŸ™‚

“Day 10 & OTP Number 2”

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Up to day 10 of October already!

This was a nice quick card to make, using some stamping to make the background with Versamark ink and then punching a banner and sewing some stitches to make the string! πŸ™‚ Again using my sew it tool~ πŸ™‚

This is the other Desk Organizer I have been working on for my cluttered work space! I used more of the same Kaiser paper pad and now it houses my cs, wheels, stamps etc!

Ok off to help my new demo do her first order which is exciting and then some more housework! Oh the joys! lol! πŸ™‚
