Craft Blog

On this blog I keep a record of things that I have made. I love to sew, repurpose, create and design things! I consider myself pretty crafty. I hope you enjoy seeing my latest projects! Crafting is a great release for me so check back often because I will be adding new things all the time!

Organization Board- Guest post by Kortnee!

Hi! My name is Kortnee and I am BFFs with Courtney M.! I am a senior at Washington State University studying psychology. I love to craft and make things during my free time, and I especially love using things around the house I already have (I am a college student after all haha). During my spring break last week I had some free time and decided I wanted to make something. Seeing the empty poster frame I bought from Goodwill for $2 almost a year ago I got some inspiration to make SOMETHING. The final product ended up being an organization board.

So, I grabbed the board and all of my scrapbooking supplies and got to work!

I didn't start taking pictures until later on in the process because I have never made a craft tutorial or really even shown off any craft projects. As I got further though I thought it was so cute and had to share it!

I used three full sheets of scrapbook paper and parts of another for this project. I kept two of the sheets full sized (a sparkly blue and a solid blue) and cut the third in half (used both pieces of it though- the blue paisley sheet). I had some polka dot scrapbook paper that I decided to cut and use for "bullets" on the board.

As I worked I decided what categories I would use for the board. I used puffy paint for embellishments, scrapbook letter stickers, pattern scissors, and white construction paper to make the labels after I pick the categories.

I ended up picking two for cleaning (one for monthly cleaning and one for weekly), shopping list, and weekly meals.

I put the stickers on the paper before I cut the days of the week out for the menu.

Here are the days and labels all added for the meals!

I used a scrapbook paper sun I've had since about...2002! haha

Here is the final product, without and then with the clear front and the edging.

Here is the board all filled out! :) the poster frame ended up working out really well so I can write directly on it because it had the clear cover over the top (as opposed to a bulletin board) but was bigger (as opposed to just a picture frame). I ended up using whiteboard markers that I already had from my white board calendar!

I hope you readers can use this to get inspired about organization as well as crafting! I am usually not very creative and original myself so I am super excited about how my board turned out! If you make one, leave a picture in the comments because I would love to see what awesome ideas other people can come up with :)

Thanks Courtney for letting me share your blog for the day! :)
