Jenna Sue: My alternative to the file cabinet. UPDATE: Check out the finished version of my File Cabinet makeover here , complete with free binder printables! Today I took a break from the standard Saturday decorating+renovating to practice another one of my most favorite pastimes... organizing. I had decided not to go with the traditional lateral filing cabinet for our office when I spotted this Aspvik wall cabinet on Ikea for $100: I loved the look of it and immediately pictured the perfect spot for it over our desk. I hadn't really thought out the logistics of it at that point, but I knew I'd find a way to make it work. Whilst at Ikea, I grabbed a couple packages of these babies for just $2 each:
I am such a believer that our spaces should not only welcome us, make us feel great, hug us with happiness and warmth, but they should also be a reflection of our personality. They should mesh with us and be a piece of us. That's why I am so incredibly smitten with the space I get to share with you today. Not only does it have insane amounts of organized bliss, it's done with such a sweet and creative edge. LOVE! Joon wrote: Reader Space: Sew Amazing Office/Craft Zone!
Organizing Made Fun: How I organize: Game cupboard My husband and I are not big "game people" but our kids are! How did that happen? Well, my kids love to play games so I made a game cupboard for them. As you can see, I had previously organized it, but as with all things you have to maintain the organization! It's located in our family room , which we are fortunate to have lots of cupboards in there!
Scratch Off Lottery Tickets - DIY + Free Printables There are a lot of birthdays in August among my family and friends, and I've been thinking a lot about which presents to get. And I thought it could be fun to have twelve little presents, one for each month, instead of one gift. So I made a set of twelve scratch off lottery tickets! Each ticket has a different prize, such as a movie night with friends, a dinner out, a spa entry with massage or a weekend getaway. If you like that idea, here is how you do it : 1.

A Law Student's Journey: Nail Polish Prints Finally I took the time to paint my nails- to try the rubbing alcohol prints! Have you been seeing the newsprint nail polish lately? The trick: Paint your nails a light color for a base. Then simply dip your finger in rubbing alcohol and press a small piece of newsprint on top. You want to hold it on there for about 30 seconds, I thought you could just press and go...but you need the ink to be dark.

I’ve always had a penchant for sunshine in a jar. Doesn’t the very phrase itself, “sunshine in a jar,” roll off your tongue and fill your mouth with magic? While I’ve never yet found myself a sunshine in a jar, I think we may have just concocted it in our kitchen tonight.
Tuesday is my thirty-something birthday and I wanted to make something fun for myself. A little happiness in a jar for my happy day please! These are great because I know that in no way during the week could I make a cake for myself.
