I, David, the man who has recently managed to goof up what day he has a big craft show will now speak of organization techniques.
Seriously. It’s one of my (many) summer goals:
- Get organized (or re-organized ’cause I was, at one point, pretty well organized)
- Get work-flow streamlined, and
- FIND A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING (desk-piles will no longer be acceptable).
The first stop on that last item is a real-life Pinterest board.
Pinterest has been great but sometimes, I need to pin actual, tangible, things and have them readily available.
Did you know you could do that?
Now, technically this could qualify as Use What You’ve Got Project 7 but it’s a double agent functioning as my latest Mod Podge Rocks project as well.You can check out the pleasantly simple tutorial over at MPR.
I like the fact that this works magnetically but also serves as a place to jot down notes.It was easy to put together and while I was “using what I had” the same thing could be created with any number of different pieces-parts that you might have around – picture frames, pallet wood scraps etc etc.
Speaking of being organized and getting things planned, did you know that Halloween is coming?
OK, well not super-soon but even before the actual day there is Scare LA!
I did Scare LA last year and really didn’t know what to expect and was completely blown away. The crowd was large and enthusiastic but, even more importantly, it was a beautifully put together event. There were speakers and panels, demonstrations and craft areas – truly something for everyone. And the costumes!!!! It was pretty awesome.
It’s coming around again this year (August 8th and 9th) to an even bigger venue in Pasadena and I am happy to be participating.
All that was the lead up to say that, if you are a Halloween connoisseur you might want to put it on your calendar (organized!) and, for a while you can get a discount on tickets using the code: SCARECHELT – just click on the pic below to be taken to their siteWhich reminds me, I need to get going….here in June….on Halloween projects!
I also need to clean up these piles on my desk…and make a couple more magnetic boards. I’m thinking a small one could go right next to my monitor here (in place of the picture) that way I could jot down ideas and keep track of “to-do lists – quickly……because “stop losing your to-do list” should also be on my To-Do list.
