Magazine Wall Art

Friday, May 20, 2016

One of my favorite ways to decorate a room is with wall art, and it can be expensive! So I decided to try this idea, magazine wall art. You can use any word you want, like your name, or your favorite quote, but I chose the word "Love." All you need is some magazines to cut pages from, a photo cutter or pair of scissors, a ruler, and a pen or pencil. Flip through the magazines and find pages that would look good with whatever color wall you have and rip them out. You can either use tape, putty, or tacks to attach the letters to the wall, but be careful that you use something that won't peel the paint off your walls! Give it a try and let me know what words you created!

How to Stay Organized

Friday, May 6, 2016

Staying organized can be a challenge for everyone, so I thought of a few ways to make it easier for you!

1. Use a file holder! The drawers in my desk don't fit standard file sizes, so I got this file holder from Staples for around $8.00. I have two more of these in my sewing room too!
2. Find a way of making to-do lists that works best for you. You can use paper, your phone, or even index cards, which I like to do a lot. 
3. Use a planner! I usually am more of an on-paper kind of person rather than a computer person when I'm trying to stay organized, but lately I've been using Google calendars and I really like it!

Give some of these organization tips a try and let me know what you think!
