Some New Garden Art!

Hello!!!  Welcome to my little world, literally!

My mom got me interested these after she made a fairy house out of the leftover trunk of a tree.  I thought that I had some pots that needed some love, so I tried my hand at it.  

 The gnome home is my first attempt.  I got all of the items either at Craft Warehouse, Michael's or JoAnn's.  I love how it turned out.  Since this picture was taken I have added a few more things.  I am not the only one who loves it...some little critter has been playing in it!  Several times I have had to put things back where they go, as they are all messed up and not where they are supposed to be!
 This is my troll home...and I love it!  These little guys are so cute!
 I found a little dragon, and knew that they needed a pet for the pond under the bridge.  This one seems to stay intact...critters are leaving this one alone.  I wonder if it is the rocks that deters them?
These are super fun to put together and very easy.  And, the best part is that I didn't pay full price for anything...watch those sales and coupons!!!

Have a wonderful day!

Planner Clip Organization

 Hi All!  Lately I have been super absorbed in my planner goodies that I haven't done much else.  This time, I was focused on making planner clips and tassels for charms.  I dug into my stash of goodies and found a few items that ended up making some super cute clips.
 For most of the clips I tried to find two pieces that mirrored each other so that both sides of the clips were pretty.  I just glued them together at the top of the clip and it was done!  Super easy.
 Here is the tassel that I made.  I hooked it into the rings of my Happy Planner.  I think it provides a really nice little piece of pretty for my planner.
 This is a look at some of my stuff on one of my bookshelves.  My other planners and notebooks live here.  Then theres this nice little organizer...
 It holds all of my other fun paper clips that I have collected over the years.  They are nice and organized!  But then I thought I needed to organize the really fun and bulky clips that I have.  So, I came up with the idea below.
 I took a 3 ring binder and some thick plastic tabbed dividers.  I cut slits in the pages and just placed my clips in an organized fashion on the pages.  Super easy peasy!
 I made those button clips years ago.
 I got into making tasseled paper clips a little while ago, here is my collection.
 Some of these I didn't make.
 Here starts my collection of tabbed/bookmark style clips.

Staying organized is a huge part of the planner game.  Now I know where all of my cool clips are and I can find them easy.

Stay organized, and thanks for coming by to see me!

Organizing and Recycling!

 This is a short post, but it is a cool idea and I wanted to share...and it shows the banner that I wrote about last week.  I was at Tuesday Morning and they had these Graphic 45 paper rolls.  I totally bought one of each and came home...then realized I wasn't sure where to store them.
I had plastic containers that my laundry pods come in all saved up and waiting for a purpose.  Today was the day.  I carefully cut off the top of the container, and wrapped it with washi tape.  This made a perfect holder for my tubes of paper.

And, if you haven't gone...check out Tuesday Morning.  They get a lot of craft supplies.  It's amazing what I have picked up there for a fraction of the price.  Yes, they have older supplies, but some things never ever go out of style for crafting.

I really  love recycling projects, and I love organization.  This was a win win!

Have a crafty day!!

7 Gypsies Artist Tray and a Paper Clip Banner

 Oh, this is one of my favorite projects!  I bought this kit at the Embellish It! crop that Jackie and I went to. It is a kit by "Button Farm".   It uses 7 Gypsies papers, ephemera, and tags.  I added a few things.
 I knew when I say the kit that it would be PERFECT to showcase some pictures of my grandkids.  And was I right!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE how this turned out!
 I have always loved 7 Gypsies and this project was so fun and easy to do.
 I just wanted to share this, I really do think it is one of my all time favorite pieces.
With the leftovers I made this Paper Clip Banner.  I had these giant paperclips and created this hanging.  It is hanging in my craft room.  I think it turned out super cute!

Have a wonderful and crafty day!
