Easy Little Wall Organizer

As you are well aware, organizing is my mantra these days (or it would be if I could find my mantra – I think it’s under a pile of papers somewhere)

So, when my friend Aimee requested a small, decorative wall organizer for her desk I was up for it.

Also, because “organized” means using time wisely, I thought I’d combine two projects and make her wall organizer my latest Mod Pod Rocks project!

See?  I’m getting really good at this!

I took some inexpensive (dollar bin!) boxes from Michaels, some scrapbook paper, a bit of scrap wood and, of course some poor, innocent candle and got to work.Supplies It’s a very easy project although quite specific to Aimee so I think of this as more of  a “jumping off point” idea.Useful Mod Podged Organizer

Although I’m pretty sure you can intuit the various steps of this project you can, if you’d like, see the full tutorial at MPR.Mod Podged Business Card Holder

I’ve been surrounded by amazingly creative people my whole life. My mom can, and does, make anything. The family has on occasion speculated that she just whipped up my dad one day when she discovered some left over fabric and stuffing. My three sisters have mad skills ranging from needlework to cooking to out and out ART. My father’s desk when I was growing up had a model train set going around it, oh, and he made that desk-from scratch. I’m the youngest and, as you can imagine, it’s a hard series of acts to follow. Truth be told, I’ve spent many, many years suppressing the creative instincts I learned at home. But I realized (rather late in life) that few things bring me more joy than making and creating. For the longest time when I went to stores I didn’t think, “I want that” I thought, “I can make that.” And, with a deep breath and a leap, I’ve started on a very new, kinda scary path. I’ve given up my steady, dependable (dull!) corporate life to spend my days happily humming away in my garage designing, creating, painting, decoupaging and sawing and, since this blog will be an honest take on things, there is also a fair amount of tripping, spilling and swearing. Through this blog I hope to share with you the struggles and (hopefully) triumphs of a very non-businessy business person. I also hope to make this blog a resource for people who like to work with their hands and who are, like me, always looking at things and thinking “I could make that!” I’ve lived many places since I left Cheltenham Road; I currently live in Los Angeles California. So, with this preamble- Welcome to Cheltenham Road! Please come on over and make yourself comfortable – the place is always open.
