Late Night...Early Morning Post


Well... it is late and I am still up... go figure! :) I have been busy organizing some things in my craft room... woo hoo! So... since I was up late... thought I would post this card real quick. I made it for a publication submission. Had the box idea and just went with it. So... there ya go!

I wanted to share the reason why I was still up organizing! I saw some tweets back and forth from some of the crafty girls in blogland about getting these storage bags. I was like... what are they talking about... so... I investigated. :) This is what I found... Latisha Yoast posted an organization idea on her blog to help keep your papers and embellishments together from the same line. I have struggled to find a good way to do that. Tonight... I decided that I would give it a try! I have to say that I really like it so far. Now I just have to find a basket big enough to store my many many bags of goodies. You can watch Latisha's video here!

Okay... going night night! Talk to you all soon!

Peace and Love! :)

hahaha!! love the fragile craft room box :) super clever, girl!

I don't know about you, but I feel the need to organize (and reorganize) when I'm stressed. This weekend, I reorganized my cardstock and inventoried a bunch of my stuff on the computer....ahhhhhh, organization!!
