I have an obsession with figuring out new ways to organize things. I have told you before how I am a huge fan of hidden storage. I am not a huge knick-nack decorator so having organized jars of things on display just isn’t me. Hence the reason I spent 4 months last year building my studio cabinets which hides everything. One of the things that bugged me lately was my mess of an underwear drawer. I counted 85 pairs of underwear. So basically I could go 3 months without washing undies and be fine. 85 pairs?!?!? What in the world!?!?
Jen from JenniferRizzo.com formed this fun collaboration with a bunch of creative bloggers where we each sent and received a fun thrifted or found object in our home to another blogger. Then we had to take that received thrifted item and add it to our decor. Some of my favorite girls, The East Coast Creative girls had me and they sent me this whatchamacallit…what on earth would you do with it? I think it is a gross between a growler and a planter.
Hi there! I’m Shayna from The Wood Grain Cottage and I’m so very excited to be part of the Infarrantly Creative contributor team! What an honor! Right now, my husband and I are working on our home office. We’re giving it a makeover… and definitely adding some organization, which leads me to today’s project. I really like ribbon and I have a habit of collecting it, but the problem was, I didn’t have anywhere to display it. I’d toss it in a basket and then forget about it. I wanted something that would be pretty enough to sit out, and big enough to hold several rolls of ribbon and store a few extra rolls too.
Boots, shoes, jackets, gloves, scarves, hats, etc. All of the pain-in-the-butt winter gear you need if you live in an area with snow. Unfortunately for me, I live in one of those areas. I am constantly trying to come up with systems to keep our family’s winter needs organized. Laura, the NY girl, has the same problem but probably double the amount of snow. She came up with an adorable idea using vintage crates to create an area in her mudroom to collect all those winter accessories.
