Here is the Before:
The New Year always begs for an organization make-over, and taking baby steps can make this an easier process. How about starting with the office supplies drawer? Get the paperclips and rubber bands out of hiding and make them an accessory to your workspace.
Gather ideas for re-styling your office supplies from my Thrifty Maker post over at the Phoenix New Times Jackalope Ranch: Office Supplies, Restyled
Tonight I am doing a YUDU workshop at MADE with Sarah of 26-Letters. I made this great inspiration board by spray painting a piece of masonite black, drilling two holes at the top, screen printing it with white patterns and then adding ribbon, rubber bands, cork, magnet and clips. Want to learn how? Join me at the workshop.
This month of October is my favorite. I love fall and super deluxe love love love Halloween. So I will be posting a Halloween goody everyday of the month – yea!
I recently found this Halloween / October Planner in the Goose Berry Patch Magazine. I did a rough scan but you could make your own or buy the magazine – it’s on news stands now and filled with Halloween ideas. Happy Haughtings!
It is back to school time and that means personalizing your goods. Boring is out and adding the handmade touch is in. For my personalization I choose to YUDU a hot pink blank laptop bag. I used the old school typewriter from the Heritage cartridge and printed it twice on the bag. I also used a charm label from the Heritage cartridge to screen print a little extra bling on a chain.

Thinking of trying to fit in one more road trip in before the end of summer? Before you head off,Â make this fun Car Technology Storage bag. You gotta have somewhere to put your ipod cord, cell phone charger, GPS and emergency power monkey. I used the Cricut cartridge called Summer Vacation to cut the central theme pieces of the truck and camper out of black paper to burn onto a YUDU screen.Â I used the YUDU to print the design onto a black handled bag that I picked up at a thrift store. I cut Aqua felt to the shape of the handle and used rivets and E-6000 to attach it. For the zipper pull I created a charm out of shrink plastic. Enjoy making your own travel goodies this week and Happy Crafting xoxo LL
