Hometalk - DIY Paper Organizer Board

Last summer I made a paper organizer from some cereal boxes I recycled and a bit of scrapbook paper I had on hand.  I loved this project and so did all of you because it has been quite a popular project.  I posted it to hometalk.com . Liz from hometalk saw it and asked me to put together a board on paper organizers.  I was so thrilled to do it because I still have a lot of papers that could use some corralling.

I had so much fun seeing all the great ideas and inspiration for the paper organizers I added to the board.

If you're not familiar with hometalk you should really check it out.  It is a great DIY home and garden site to find some of the most awesome inspiration and projects.  And if I have a question about a particular process or project I can ask it there and someone will surely have an answer or point me in the right direction to find it.  It is also a great site to collect ideas you may want to use in the the future or refer to at a later date.  All you have to do is click on that project and add it to a board you have created.  Easy peasy and always there for you to find again. 

I don't know about you but I can see some more paper organization in my future.   If you click on the image above or the link it will take you to the  board where you can then read the full post on each project.  I am sure you will find a great one to spark some inspiration for you to make one of your own.  I know I am going to be busy in the next few weeks.

If you love to share your DIY, home and/or garden projects then this is the place to do so.  If you don't have anything to share it's a great place to get some awesome inspiration for your next project, create your own boards and build some great places to keep all your inspiration in one spot. 
                                                    Beware though - it can be addicting!

You can also follow them on Facebook where they love to feature some of the projects shared on their site.
Have fun perusing all the great projects and building your own creative, inspirational boards.

Until next time have fun creating something you love.

I will be linking to the parties listed on the I Party At page.  Please visit them and check out all the great inspiration and ideas found there.

Share It One More Time #21

Hi everyone and welcome to the 
 Saturday Share It One More Time link party.

I don't know about you but I am having a hard time staying warm right now.  The sun has totally forgotten where we live and the temps have been in the 30's with wind chills in the 20's.  I know for some of you that would be warm but that is cold for here.  I have spent this week totally unmotivated, curled up in a nice warm blanket with a cup of hot coffee or tea most of the day.  I haven't even done any projects - I think I am in hibernation mode!  Don't know what I would do if I were more North of here.  
 Ah, well thank goodness I had last weeks party to go to and get some  great ideas and inspiration for when I do decide to come out from underneath these blankets.  You all always knock it out of the ballpark and this week was no different.
So without further ado I am going to get right on with the features.  

Purple Hues and Me

I love these adorable little snowball candle votives that Gail at Purple Hues and Me  made from Styrofoam balls - and she gives an awesome tutorial for you to make your own.


Wow! Is all I can say about this awesome wainscoting that Scrapality put up in her dining room over the holiday break.  You have to go check out what she used to do it with.

 Our Crafty Mom

I love the way Michelle from Our Crafty Mom decorated her mantel for winter by using a lot of her Christmas decor. Now that's what I call double duty decor. And those yarn pom poms are so adorable.

Lovely Livings

LuAnn at Lovely Livings has set the table for a lovely winter tea party.  So pretty with  the pink napkin roses strewn throughout all the creams and whites. What a wonderful way to spend a dreary cold winter afternoon with friends.

Redo It Yourself Inspirations

You will be amazed at the transformation Robin from Redo It Yourself Inspirations did with this old sewing machine and the story behind it will just melt your heart.

Congratulations to all that were featured. 

If you missed the last party  be sure to go visit it here- I think you'll find lots of great ideas you'll fall in love with.

Throwback Thursday - Winter Mantel

Vintage, Paint and more... a winter mantel decor with book page crafts, thrifted objects and diy projects

It's definitely winter here.  We have had a week of rain, rain, rain and temps dropping down to the 30's with wind chills of 20's. Not really my favorite weather for sure.  I am beginning to think we will never see the sun again.  I am not a fan of winter and it actually puts me into hibernation mode when it gets cold.  So I have done nothing since Christmas.   Today I am bringing you a Throwback Thursday post from a couple years.

Organize Your Desktop on a Budget

Vintage, Paint and more... organization made from recycled items

Good afternoon everyone.  How is your Christmas clean-up going?  I finally got the last of the decor taken down and put away today.  This is later than usual for me and I know that I will most definitely find one lone straggler that is hiding from me later. Does that happen to you?
With the Christmas purge I always feel like I need to organize those areas of my life and home that are just not performing like I think they should.  I know most of you do the same thing.  So I thought I would bring together some of the organizational tools I have used to get my work area to function better for me. Not only do these do a great job of organizing my desktop - they are also budget friendly and actually can be free if you utilize things you have lying around the house.
