Playing today

Today i played making backgrounds. I used blue and green acrylic paint, and added in a bit of yellow on the larger book.

Then i used various stamps with blue, green, and frayed burlap stamp pads on all three backgrounds, then yellow, red, and orange each on one background. With white paint and stencils i added more layers to the backgrounds. And finally i used a spray cap and tp roll to make circles with white, blue, black, orange, and red.

My Mission Organization WEEK 2 (rushing to catch up)

I am going to save the freezer until i have a whole week to work on it, I don't think I can do all my freezers tomorrow!

So for my week two, i am going to organize the bookcase in the hall. Yes the same hall as the closet. I have a very small house, but it is stuffed to the gills and overflowing.

Ao there will be lots in the 5 rooms i have; bedroom, living room, kitchen, bathroom, and the dreaded craft room. I will also work on the back porch/laundry room/pantry area.

Here is the book shelf I am going to work on tomorrow.

So, here it is. . .

Much better I have to say!! Cant wait for the year to be over and my whole house to be clean and organized!!

My Mission Organization WEEK 1 (better late than never)

I was surfing and happen across a post by Mrs Happy Homemaker about doing a 52 week organization challenge.

Sounds like something I really need to do.

So. . . lets try this thing!!

I dont have before pictures, but here are after pictures of the hall closet.
