My Summer DIY Project

My summer time was spent a bit differently this year. I did not have any problems with a work schedule to interrupt my projects as I previously had the past forty years.  As normal, I like to use household items I already have in the inventory, usually found in my craft containers.

This first item, the the wooded white letter "B".
The next item I found in my office was the Elmer's Craft Bond-spray adhesive and also an assortment of scrapbook sheets.
In this photo, you can see the burlap covered poster board.  This and the following pieces were purchased at my favorite store, Hobby Lobby.  So my shopping list included the burlap board, Mod Podge-waterbase sealer, 1/4" thick or less of a cardboard shape and cutout.

First step: Trace cardboard shape out of favorite color scrapbrook sheet. Then cut shape out with scissors.
Second step:  Outside use spray adhesive on cardboard shape and then carefully place the scrapebook
                 sheet cutout onto the cardboard.   After drying.   Then start applying Mod Podge with craft
                 brush.  Allow 30 minutes for each coat to dry before applying another layer of Mod Podge.
                 The Mod Podge reminded me of using decoupage back in the early 1970's.
Third step:  Next step glue the cardboard to the burlap board. Making sure to center the piece and have
                  an even margin on each side.
Fourth step: Apply spray adhesive to back of cutout and apply on top of the scrapbook Mod Podge coated
                   sheet centered. The last step will be to place the White "B" letter glued and center on top.

Mason Jars

I love Mason Jars, they bring so many memories from childhood to gardening and canning each summer.

This jar is really a neat kitchen accessory.  Stacked, it appears like a one quart jar.  But it really is a set of measuring cups as shown here.

Summer brings those nice blooming plants and just makes you want a glass of cold Southern Tea.

Getting Organized

Yes, it's that time of the year, let's get organized. Nothing jump starts a good plan of action better than having a clean desk.

We all are busy getting our income tax papers together.  So starting out clean gives us a good focus for our new year. First way to plan for a clean desk is to clear the desk.  Small loose items like paper clips, scotch tape dispensers, staplers and small pieces of papter can go into the top drawer.  This drawer can also be kept in an orderly manner as well.

You need only a few effective items for the top of your desk.  So choose a pretty color for your accessories.  Choose a desk set which gives you that relaxing smile when you first sit down to do your work.

The next step is to pick out functional pieces for storage and organizing your papers.  In time management classes, the best way to have items on the desk is to go in a vertical space and not lay papers on top of each other.
Shown here are the calming beige cube units which can be labeled for $5.00 each during the month of February.  So get busy, place your order today for the desk sets, which will fit your fancy and your 2014 is off to a great start.  Your success is my joy!
