Closet Organization – Free Download

February 24th, 2009

Today I was feeling especially motivated to organize (one of my favorite thing to do). So I finally bit the bullet and got some great clear bins at Costco. Although I live in a small apartment in San Francisco, I have 2 really nice big closets. Since moving here they have become increasingly more frightening to open. So I took a little time this evening and I went through both of my closets and organized everything that I could into bins:



The next step in my organization was to make some cute labels! My second favorite thing is to make cute labels! What a good day! So I designed these labels (Available for free download at the end of this post), printed and cut them out:



Once they were all cut out, I ran them through my xyron 250 machine. If any of you don’t know what this is — its the most amazing invention to come to paper crafting. you basically slide your paper (or buttons or ribbon anything thin enough) through the front and turn the wheel, and it comes out the back A STICKER! I’m being completely serious here. You have to see it in person, but whatever you put in, comes out with the perfect amount of adhesive adhered to the back. Get one!


Once the labels were all made into stickers, I just threw them up on the containers! 


And some up-close shots:




I am so so happy to have this done. The closets look amazing and with the labels, everything now has its own little home! Hopefully this will motivate you to do a little bit of spring cleaning and organizing. Be sure to download some labels so that you can keep all your stuff straight! I’d love to hear about your organization methods and be sure to leave a comment if you do download the labels. xoxo Jen Allyson

MPM- Free Valentine Cards!

January 19th, 2009

mpm2Mini-project Monday is here! We all know that there are some extremely unattractive valentine’s cards out there. Some of them are kind of cute, and your kids may really want the my little pony or spiderman cards. If you can actually manage to get to the store to buy them the moment they come out, you can get the ones you want. But chances are you’ll run to the store on february 13th and end up with teletubby cards… don’t tell me it hasn’t happened to you before!

Don’t worry, this year is going to be different. I’ve got you covered!  I designed some cute and simple valentine’s cards for you to print out at home. Best of all they are free! These can be used as valentines for your kids to give out or as tags on gifts for neighbors, children, siblings, & grandmas! Just print them out, cut them, attach some candy (I recommend lollipops) and have your child write his or her name. Voila! Fast and easy valentine’s that are actually cute!

Look at how adorable these cards are! The link for you to download is at the bottom of this post. enjoy!
