Getting Organized

I know my blog has been severely neglected- life just keeps going and blogging doesn't make it up the list- I think laundry has become a full time job in and of itself.... But I had this great idea (that has probably been had by a hundred other people) but it was new to me and so exciting I couldn't wait to share it here!  I saw this "hanging jewelry organizer" and since I own exactly 7 pieces of jewelry besides my wedding ring it looked like the perfect element & embellishment organizer!  It has 33 pockets on each side (that's 66 pockets!) and I was able to clear up so much shelf and desk top space by emptying out little bottles and boxes into the pretty clear pockets.  And the very best thing about it is it's portable!  I can hang it in my "cricut cupboard" (which is my old TV armoire) when I am working out there or haul it back to my bedroom desk when I'm working there.  So fun, it's changing my life already.  I have seen bigger ones (the kind for shoes I think) filled with punches and other tools and I think I need to get one of those now too- it can hang on the outside of my Cricut armoire, or behind my bedroom door.

Orla Kiely Inspired Card

I participated in the Tuesday Trigger Challenge over on Moxie Fab World- I created this card:
inspired by this great image of Orla Kiely tins:
I gravitate to making cards anyways but that picture was just perfect for a card! Love the colors and prints on them.  The papers in MME Darling Dear 6x6 pad had a similar feel. Today's the last day of this challenge but they have a new one each week so go check it out and play along!
