Happy New year to all! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and new year. I was not able to make cards or a lot of crafts this past year. But, yesterday I started back on a trend from years ago, making 5 cards every month....January is finished!

I stubled upon Modgepodgerocks.com, a great site. Getting ideas for Valentine's day, since I will be " homebound" recovering from surgery. One week, and counting, still have a lot to do at home.

I feel so bad for a co worker, she got flaked on with the clinic's Secret Santa this year. Poor girl is a single mother with kids, she went to trouble to get nice things for the name she drew, and the person who drew her name did not bother to do anything. I think I am going to fix her a basket with Valentine stuff, cookie mixes,sprinkles, something she could do with her children, and whip up some cards she can give to the kid's teachers and friends.

That's awful - the person who had that poor girl's name should not be allowed to participate next year!! It's so nice of you to put something together for her.

I have been spending these first weeks of January organizing all the goodies I bought after xmas, and putting them on a spreadsheet so I know what I have at a glance.
I am pondering making a new style of bookmarks for next year.

What ya'll got on the burners for Valentine's Day?

Like Diane I have been organizing everything I purchased at the after Christmas sales. My list of new items and old has grown way out of hand already. Reviewing list and deleting.....oh no a whole year to go!!! My list will go on forever. Planning on getting started in February on my first items.

Default reorganizing

I think I need help. I used to be one of the most organized people anyone knew. This is no longer true, except in my mind. I have stuff literally everywhere and need to know what system works for ya'll when you start putting away and planning for the coming craft season. I make cards all year, but most of my other crafting is just seasonal treats for my grandchildren's classrooms. I am then left with HUGE amounts of Christmas stuff in various stages of the crafting process and cannot figure out a reasonable way to store it so that I can finish it and have it ready for the Christmas crafting season and still be able to locate it. I was unable to craft this past season, so my leftovers are from 2012, but of course, I purchased a "few" (crafters do not have a good grasp of the definition of that word) new things on sale this year. All suggestions welcome. Thanks.

I buy the 12x12 boxes at hobby lobby or wherever and label it whatever Holiday is stored in there. I put everything I have pertaining to that event in that box,sometimes I will even jot down ideas that I had or notes about what I was working on since my memory rarely lasts beyond the day before..sometimes there are more then one box. But the boxes I buy are black and very sleek so they look very orderly on the shelf.

I do the same as Jennaz with 12x12 Iris project boxes except my boxes are by season and holidays. For example in the Spring box is Valentine's Day, Mother's day, etc. I also put samples and ideas cut from magazines in the box so I don't have to search for them. I have separate boxes for Easter, Halloween, and a boat load of boxes for Christmas.

In the boxes are paper, stamps, embellishments that are specific to that holiday. I have so much Christmas stuff that I have boxes for paper, ribbon, embellishments, 3-D items, etc. My Christmas stamps are stored unmounted and stored in DVD cases by types (reindeer, Santa, sentiments, snowmen, trees, etc.).

I've been using this system for several years and I don't loose things and don't have to hunt through a bunch of other boxes. I also save money because I'm forcing myself to shop my own boxes before buying new.

Have the same problem myself. Love the idea of using the 12x12 boxes that way.

There are some plastic canvas projects that are small and I usually make in abundance. This Christmas, I covered coffee containers with a red and gold swirled paper. All of the projects, yarn, etc fit well in three cans. Love how they look,easy to store, find and use.

Default help

Thanks everyone. I actually have and use the Iris boxes as mentioned, but am not currently putting the ideas in the box with them. I keep them in a notebook by my computer where I jot down ideas as I come across them and also pin them to a "secret" board so I don't lose them. However, I think I will try putting at least a copy or list of the ideas with the items. I also need to actually get last year's goodies off the floor and into the boxes so I can walk in my craft room! Please just jump in if there are any other great tips. I have way too much stuff, so a good purge would help, I'm sure. I cannot part with my stamp sets though!

I put all my templates made for past projects and ideas for future projects in clear sleeves in 2 different binders. Before I decide on a project, I flip through these for inspiration.

Another thing I do is organize all tutorials in my computer under a "TUTORIAL" heading. Then, I save them under folders in there (cards, treat boxes, etc). It is a great way to capture all those online tutorials. I sometimes have to cut and paste them from a website into a Word document.
I do it this way because I had a hard time just using bookmarks on my computer. I could NEVER remember where I put them and then sometimes they were deleted or could "not be found".

I love the 12" x 12" boxes for paper storage & think I might get more for embellishment storage. I bought mine in a bundle of 5 boxes for about $20 from Costco. They're different colors

I wish we had a Costco, and we shop Dallas enough to pay for a membership. But everytime we are driving by dh won't stop. We will be getting a Jo Ann's by the fall though. It's progress.

Default 12x12 plastic boxes

I use these boxes also. I buy the plastic ones at Michaels when on sale or use a coupon. Don't know what I would do without them. Stock that didn't sell at last year's shows are already in the boxes. Each box is marked with item name, quantity and price per item. I also mark if this bin is complete or if I need to make additional or any other notes I need. As soon as I decide on an item I'll be making for upcoming shows I immediately make up a box with all the information etc. These boxes are marked with the project name and inside are any items and notes etc. I also put a list of anything I have to purchase to complete the items and the receipt for purchases so I can figure out the amount I am going to charge. As purchases are made they are placed in the boxes. I keep all the boxes under one of my tables in my craft room. A stack for completed items, a stack for items to be done and a stack of empty boxes. I do have a couple of large bins in the same area for large quantities and bigger items that will not fit into the 12x12's. I also log everything in a book or on the computer. Once I get enough completed boxes I start placing them into bins or carts ready for transport. It sounds like allot of work but once you get started it becomes a breeze to keep up with. 90% of my projects fit in these boxes once completed. Now if I could only get the rest of my craft room organized.

Knox, THAT is what I call organized! Love it! I could probably do that as well if I could find an empty space for stacking so many boxes. My stamp room has lots of those boxes in it, but they are full of dsp for the most part, and a few do have started projects stored in them. I think I will try this method overall, though and see how it works for me. Thanks everyone for the tips. I hope I actually get to do a craft fair this coming year, especially if I go to all this trouble to get organized.

One thing I do is put reminders in my day planner. I got my 2014 planner in October, so I marked reminders telling me where I stashed key components to projects like " muslim for quilt back in laundry basket top left craft room". Baby yarn in cedar chest. Sure helps this forgetful person, and keeps digging time down.

Now a cookie recipe, just in time for Valentine's. My boys like strawberry, so I whipped these up.

1 strawberry cake mix
2 tbsp strawberry preserves
1/3 cup oil
1/4 cup milk
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix all together , if dough seems too soft add a tbsp of flour. Scoop out on lightly greased cookie sheet, bake 10-12 minutes. These are soft cookies. I added a handful of red and pink M&M's, would be good with chocolate chips.

My sister came over the weekend, helped me bake for the grandson's parties.

350 degrees, 10-12 minutes on lightly greased cookie sheet. This recipe makes a soft cookie, not too cakey though. Just easy, and will be on my grandson's party tray.

Thanks again for the recipe! My boys (son & husband) loved them and want me to make more! I used red m & m's, I'll try the chocolate chips the next time!

Back to work, eight weeks off. Stiff, sore, but walking upright. Have not got back in scrap room, stamina is very low right now, and having hard time sleeping. One good thing out of this whole ordeal is I am 14 lbs lighter, two weeks in hospital ruined food for me for a long time.

Sorry to hear you are still stiff and sore, but glad to hear you are okay. Take time and heal and you'll be better hopefully soon!
My mom broke her leg 5 years ago this past January. Broke the one bone in something like 16 places! She was in the hospital for a week, rehab (nursing home) for a month, and then came to my house for over a month. When she was in Rehab she'd call me and ask me to bring her "REAL coffee and something edible".
Feel Better!!!!

Well, got to get in the scrap room, but not for the usual reasons. This will be shown in court. Ex dil has contended that the grandson's sports interferes too much with her visitation time, and is taking us to court for us to stop signing them up. And if we don't, she is petitioning for custody.

The games people play in the name of love for their children. So, I am going to make a gorgeous scrapbook with all their seasons of sports. Got to make this look good, on the premise it must be very important to them to do this.


I get so sick of stupid people.

Off to start cropping pictures.
