If you like to craft then you usually have ALOT of stuff. Odds and ends...a little of this and a little of that. Well my craft "corner" and "area" was a MESS!! So I decided to get it all organized! This is how I did it!!

You will need:
Stuff that needs to be organized
Crates (Walmart has them for $1!!)
or Rub-on Letters
Step 1: Get all your stuff out and seperate it into individual piles
Ex. Paint, Tools, Ribbon.....etc..
Step 2: Put each individual pile of things into a crate.

Step 3: With your cricut or rub-on letters, label each crate.

Step 4: There you have all of your things organized into individual crates nicely stacked to where you can see and get to each one of them!

AAHHHHH I love if I can get my Laundry and the rest of my house to be this easy!! :)

~Mod Podge Recipe File~

I'm so excited to start all of this is no "professional" crafters blog of any sorts. The main reason I started this was to keep note of some of the crafts I do...and to share the ideas with you! So for the first craft post!!
First off...I LOVE Mod Podge! I like either Gloss or Matte but usually use the Matte. But in this project I used Gloss. So anyway for this project you will need:
Small-Medium Wood Box with Latch- (found at Micheals or any craft store)
Red Paint/ or Color that coincides with your paper
1 sheet of scrapbooking paper
Paint Brush
Embellishments (Ribbon/buttons/flowers)
Mod Podge

Step 1: Paint the entire wooden box with color of choice/ mine was red. You may chose to remove the latch. I did on mine...I'm not a fan of Gold!
Let it dry good for 20-30 mins

Step 2: Measure Scrapbooking paper on all sides of the box/cut/and Mod Podge it to the Box.

Step 3: Here it is with all the paper mod podged...I left a small red "edge" around it to bring out the red in the paper. Let this dry really well.

Step 4: Embellish your box with ribbon, flowers, and buttons. I did 3 strips of coinciding ribbon on top and then did coinciding flowers on top of the ribbon.

I also added Ribbon and buttons to the Front of the box. I cut "Recipe" with my cricut and put it on the front. You can use any type of letters you want and mod podge them on or hot glue whichever is easiest!

Let everything dry over night and you will have your super cute Recipe File ready for you in the morning!!! Love it!

If you have any other questions feel free to comment and ask!! Also if you are interested in purchasing them. You can contact me and I will give you price information!! They are super fun to make!! ENJOY :)

~Mummy Pizza's~

We love this time of year for many many reasons!! My kids loved these super cute super easy pizza mummies:


English muffins
Pizza sauce
Black olives
Cheese sticks or slices

1. Heat the oven to 350° F. For each mummy, spread a tablespoon of pizza sauce onto half of an English muffin (toast it first, if you like). 2. Set olive slices in place for eyes. 3. Lay strips of cheese (we used a pulled-apart cheese stick) across the muffin for the mummy?s wrappings. 4. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the muffin is toasty
