Organizing from Martha Stewart

I thought this was a really unique way to
organize things...
Just using paint cans!


I feel like i have cords hanging out every which way,
so when I saw this I couldn't resist to share it!

Tools & Materials

  • Two cloth-covered boxes with hinged sides and grommet finger holes. ("Library project" cases, $17 each,
  • Utility knife with a fresh blade
  • Metal ruler
  • Power strip (with an on/off switch to conserve electricity)
  • Self-adhesive Velcro strips
  • Self-adhesive cord hooks (3M Mounting Cord Clips, $3.50 for 4,
  • 1 foot of 1/2-inch-wide ribbon (optional)
  • Glue (optional)

1. Prepare the bottom box: On the side of the box that has the grommet hole, draw a 1-inch-tall rectangle at the other end (trace a small Post-it note). Using a metal ruler as a guide, carefully score along this line with the knife until you cut through (do not try to pierce the box and then saw).

2. Push the prong end of the power strip out through the hole from the inside. Use the Velcro to anchor the power strip to the inside back of the box (or the bottom, depending on what best accommodates your adaptors). Plug in the adaptors, and thread their ends out through the grommet hole.

3. Prepare the top box: Space the cord hooks a few inches apart, attaching them near the back of the box to allow room for the gadgets when you shut the lid. Thread the device ends of the adaptors in through the box's built-in grommet hole, and anchor them under the hooks

4.Optional Finish the edge of the rectangular cutout with ribbon and glue. Also optional (if a little
messier inside): Use just one box, stick the power strip to the very back, and coil the cords with twist ties.

Tip: Leave the box open when recharging so heat doesn't build up, and so you don't forget to grab your gadgets on the way out.

Simply Beautiful

I thought this was too beautiful for words... so simple, yet so pretty! Find the rest of the "Pink and Black Wedding" here at Snippet & Ink

Mac BookBook

How neat are these:
What a clever idea, and so wonderfully presented! Find them here... they are a little pricy ($79.99) but im sure they are worth it!

Absolutely Beautiful!

This wedding is stunning! I found it here on Style Me Pretty! Really cute and new ideas!

Parts of my Life: Half Marathon in St. George

Some of us girls went down to support our friends in a half marathon they were doing in St. George. It was a short trip, but well worth it and so much fun! :)


How cute are these:

Find them here on etsy...

DIY: Necklaces

You can easily do these yourselves!
Thanks to the one and only Martha Stewart, these have been made possible to wear without spending loads of cash. Click here to learn how.

I made flowers for mine instead of jewels. They look harder than they really are...


For large ribbon roses: 18 1/2" of 1 1/2" wire-edge ribbon

For medium ribbon roses: 12" of 7/8" wire-edge ribbon


1. To make each rose, make a knot at one end of the ribbon length. At opposite end, pull wire from one side and gently slide ribbon along wire until entire side is completely gathered; do not cut off wire end.
2. To form rose, begin with knotted end and spiral wrap gathered ribbon around knot. Wrap tightly at first, to form center of rose, then loosely for open petals.
3. To end, fold raw edge under rose and wrap wire tightly around knotted end; trim excess wire. Cut off the end of knot.

I also used spray fabric glue to glue on the lace onto the felt; just a small added touch!

Reusable Bags-RuMe

Okay, so normally I'm not a person who is really all that concerned with the planet, but i saw these on and thought I could totally start using these. I mean they are so cute, how could you not want to use them all the time! AND they are totally affordable!

$28.50 for a set of 3 large bags and $25.50 for a set of 3 small bags. Or they are $8.95 each. And they names of them are too cute... Spring in New York and Fall in New York (which are the pictures shown, these are the ones i got).

So far I am in LOVE with them! You will not regret your purchase! And the best part is, is they fit anywhere because they fold up so small. Genius!!
