A Bit of Everything

Thank you for participating in my giveaway. Five winners will be announced on Sunday. Thank you for playing along and for offering your organizing ideas. It was a very interesting and entertaining read. It seems that many of us struggle with organization. For me, it is an ongoing process. What works for me today may not work for me tomorrow.

It is amazing what you find when you begin organizing. I must have thought that I needed more colored pencils. Why? I don't know.

I am kind of in between projects at the moment and still unsure what to work on next. I actually feel a bit scattered even though I am a lot more organized now. When I feel this way, I always opt for something familiar.

My motto: When you don't know what else to make, make hexagons.

So, hexagons it will be. Maybe more Hexagon Flower Ornaments are in order.

After all, I have 6 drawers of scrap fabric sitting around waiting to be made into something.

I'll leave you with this. We sometimes have the most amazing Hawaiian sunsets. This was snapped from my patio several evenings ago.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

I thought of you just now when I was in JoAnns 0 I saw a ribbon organising box with five holes to let the ribbons roll out! I love the bag, so glad you finished it for your niece.

Lettie, your Hawaiian sunset is beautiful!!!!

I can't wait to see what kind of organizing magic you do with all your supplies.

Take care.

Needled Mom said...

Yep....I think you have a lifetime supply of colored pencils.

Love that sunset!!!!

I love your colorful array of pencils...and your beautiful sunset. Someday I might get to see it there. I think hexagons are very relaxing to work on and a good thing to do while coming up with a next project.

That was a beautiful sunset Lettie! I like your hexagon ornaments. I am sure you will come up with something cute with your scraps.

yeah, It is great you have so many drawers of scraps. You make cute things with all the stuff you have. I think my colored pencils would out weigh yours. heh

I LOVE the hexies.

You wouldn't be creative if you didn't find yourself in a rut. I think it makes us invent another reason to get back in the saddle and get more done. The organization shows a creative side also. Hang in there you will be restored and rejuvenated in no time. chris

Ooooh, what a fabulous supply of colored pencils and fabric scraps! I love your hexagons.

I recently discovered your blog -- reminds me of my best friend in Chattanooga who can always find something nifty & crafty to do with just about anything. You have such neat things to try! Re your fabric scraps, what about yo-yos? They are great for using up small pieces & can decorate lots of things or be strung together for toys etc.

Having been inspired by your last posting to do something about my buttons I went to B&Q, our big DIY chain and bought some divided boxed (in the sale and very cheap) and spent a wonderful Saturday morning sorting out my buttons, beads, sequins and other pretty, shiny things or PSTs as they are called in our house My husband thinks I will never need to buy another button but I can already see I am a bit low on purple and orange ones...

I have also just finished a Tic Tac Toe game to go in the Christmas Present box for the daughter of a friend. Thanks for the inspriation for that. It looks great.

Love the sunset - just how I imagine an Hawaiian sunset would look.
