This is my last post for a few weeks, I’m taking a little break to work on some things for my blog and some planning, but I will be back June 3. My Etsy shop will still be open, and I will hopefully be adding new stuff to it soon.
Schools out, what are you doing for your summer vacation?

I love organizing, especially when I don’t have to buy anything for it. Spring is the perfect time to get everything organized, and I am determined to get my craft space cleaned up. My first project was my desk drawer, the most unorganized place in my room. There is only one drawer in my desk, and it does not take long for it to become a huge mess. I made these wonderful drawer dividers from old cereal and food boxes. It’s so cheap, because I already had paper and we are always buying cereal! Plus it’s a good way to recycle! Mine don’t match very well, because I didn’t have enough matching paper for all of these, but they still work wonderfully!
You will need:
Empty Cereal or Food Boxes
Decorative Paper or Wrapping Paper
Craft Knife, Scissors, or Box Cutter
Double Sided Tape
Put all the boxes in the drawer to see if they all fit right, then use the drawer as a guide to mark the height all the way around the box.
Cut the box along the lines you made, as straight as you can. The paper will be more difficult to fold over if the edges aren’t mostly straight
Cut 2 strips of paper to fit the box both ways, and crease all the edges. Be careful not to tear it. Then take the strips out, put tape on all sides of the box, and smooth the paper down.
Now you can enjoy your nicely organized drawer!

I’m so sorry for not blogging for a while, but I’m back now and I have a recipe for DIY Bathroom and Shower Cleaner!
This couldn’t be any easier to make! There are only two ingredients in it, and it takes maybe 2 1/2 minutes to make. It got water spots off of the faucets in the bathtub and the bathroom sink that we could never get off with other cleaners. I don’t have before and after pictures, because we have been keeping up with cleaning the tubs and sinks with the house being up for sale, so you can’t tell a difference in pictures. I was afraid that it would smell to much like vinegar, but with the dish soap I used, I barely noticed it! I made 3 batches of it, one for each bathroom.
1 cup White Vinegar
1 cup Dawn Dish Soap (we used the Wal-Mart brand)
Put both ingredients in a microwave safe bowl or measuring cup
Microwave for 2 minutes, then pour into a spray bottle. It’s that easy and quick!
This works best on tubs and showers where it is easy to rinse off, but it also works well on sinks and counters, just don’t spray too much or it will be harder to get it all of the counter.
I hope everyone is doing well! It’s looking and finally feeling like spring here, and I love, love, love it!! Spring has to be my favorite season! It’s so beautiful! I’ve been crocheting a lot lately to build up stock, so that eventually I can do a craft show. We are still waiting for the house to sell. The waiting has been hard, but lately I have actually started to enjoy it. I love it here and if we don’t end up moving to Northwest, AR, that would be just fine with me! It feels like home here, even though I was born in Nebraska.
Have fun Spring Cleaning! Yes it can be enjoyable if you make it that way!
The giveaway is over!
