absolutely beautiful things Organize and Decorate Everything — Organize Your Life and Decorate Your World Here is another garland I made for Emilee’s birthday and to decorate her bedroom door. This is another great way to give money as a gift. To make the Dollar Bow Garland you can make as many bows as you like and in any denomination. My folding skills aren’t amazing so I decided on making a simple bow. Fold one end of the bill toward the center, then the other end. Accordion fold the center of the bill a bit then smush it together. Cut a length of bakers twine and wrap it around the center of the bill a few times to secure it. Cut bakers twine for the length of the banner. Emilee loved it! I have one more garland I made for her birthday. Check out these posts if you missed fun ways to give money to teens:Straw GarlandBirthday Money Balloons Do you know the perfect birthday gift for your teen? I started with 50 $1 bills and 18 straws. I measured and cut the straws in half. Then I used a needle to pull the bakers twine through each straw. This is so exciting! Happy Sweet 16 Emilee!!!

7 Secrets of the Super Organized A few years ago, my life was a mess. So was my house, my desk, my mind. Then I learned, one by one, a few habits that got me completely organized. Am I perfect? Of course not, and I don’t aim to be. So what’s the secret? Are these obvious principles? If your life is a mess, like mine was, I don’t recommend trying to get organized all in one shot. So here are the 7 habits: Reduce before organizing. If you take your closet full of 100 things and throw out all but the 10 things you love and use, now you don’t need a fancy closet organizer. How to reduce: take everything out of a closet or drawer or other container (including your schedule), clean it out, and only put back those items you truly love and really use on a regular basis. Write it down now, always.

A Bowl Full of Lemons. Life. Organized. driftwood interiors Angela Says: A Cleaning Blog Can we change the future? A scientific view... I was reading this article from 1998 about quantum theory – I know it’s pretty old…, but there was something about it that struck me! It’s maybe also because I’m reading this book that contains a lot of prescience characteristics or just my open mind. So, I decided to put together all this scientific evidence with one scope – Can we change the future? Do we have an influence on our future? An extract from the article on ScienceDaily (Feb. 27, 1998) “demonstrating how a beam of electrons is affected by the act of being observed. To demonstrate this, the researchers built a tiny device measuring less than one micron in size, which had a barrier with two openings. Alain Aspect, a French physicist, in 1982 discovered that subatomic particles such as elections are able to automatically - instantaneously - simultaneously communicate with each other regardless of the distance separating them. And then, come all the questions: Is our future written?

Home Sanctuary Frugal and Thriving - An Australian site about frugal living, saving money, money management, sustainable living and thriving on less. Oil rig hotel I’ve been aching to write about hotels for a while now because after all, a good hotel should serve as your “home away from home.” For those of you who have fantasized about spending the night on an oil rig — there must be someone out there — this post’s for you. Renderings of an oceanic destination resort that makes use of one of the thousands of oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico have been making the rounds in the green blogosphere for the last couple days. The design concept, Oil Rig Resort, Spa, and Aquatic Adventure, by Houston-based Morris Architects won the grand prize ($10,000 smackers) at the second annual Radical Innovations in Hospitality design competition. I think the vision is quite stunning even though I gather you’d need a series pair of sea legs to survive a visit. I also can't help but think of one of cinema's all-time great stinkers, Waterworld, going the Vegas (or Dubai) route. Not only does the resort make use of an abandoned oil rig (talk about creative reuse!)

I'm an Organizing Junkie - clutter & chaos free...most of the time Three Boys, One Room « the bumper crop It took a while, but we finally got the boys’ room done! I was inspired once again by Ana White. When the time came for August to switch to a big boy bed, we decided to put all three boys in the same room. We looked for some time for bunk beds, triple beds, and all different combination of beds to accommodate all three of them in a small space, and we really didn’t find anything that we liked and could afford. So, although what we hoped to be a weekend project took a little longer, we are happy with the results! We used the plans for the hanging daybed and modified them just a bit. This is Sam’s bed. The bed linens are from Ikea, including this embroidered map of the world pillow. August sleeps on the bottom and Jeremiah sleeps on top. Jeremiah has a ladder and a rope that he can climb to get in bed. Jeremiah takes art as his elective at school and I framed one of the stamp prints that he made. This is the artwork by August’s bed.
