So, if you’re anything like most Americans, you’ve probably made a New Years Resolution or two. One of the big ones people have made this year is to get organized. Yep, we all struggle with it. For February, we are going to create a few project to help you get organized in 2012!
My first project is one of those tools that I have needed for years. If you’re anything like me, receipts are stashed all over the house but I can NEVER find the one of need when I need it so I created a Receipt Catcher. This cool tool is made with (4) envelopes with tabs so you can sort your receipts and AS LONG AS YOU USE IT you will always have that receipt when you need to return something. 🙂 The key being “as long as you use it”. I am thrilled with how this project turned out. I hope you like it too.
Our next project is a Birthday Tracker. I need this project SO bad. Confession time…I am just horrible about sending out birthday cards. I mean REALLY bad. My brother-in-law won’t even speak to me because I never remember his kid’s birthdays – yep, I’m that bad. Each year I say I am going to be better about it and each year, I still make and mail less than 1 card a year. Just ask my best friend, Brenda. Luckily she loves me anyway.
This fun little book will help me keep all my January, February, March, etc birthdays all in one place and I can check the book and KNOW I need to get a card in the mail. I created the inside on My Digital Studio (the greatest creation since the rubber stamp!) and I also used a new stamp set called Apothecary Art – stunning, yes? I love it too!
I also think this little book SCREAMS Tiffany’s! I love the color of Pool Party!!!
The last project is a password keeper. I don’t know about you but I can NEVER remember the web address, user name, password, log-in name, etc. for all these websites! It drives me NUTS! I wanted a fun little book to keep them all in to help me stop wasting time having to click the “forgot your password?” button. Ugh. I do keep this little book hidden and I don’t write down all of my password but enough that I know which one it is. I think it’s the user name I struggle with the most. Anyhoo, I love this little book and I created it with index cards cut in half. So easy and simple YET it is sure to save me a lot of time…. I hope.
