You've got to check this out!

I love this site and their idea's on creativity.
 This is Septembers Crafts

This is from their site:

One of the best things about being a part of the blogging community is being able to draw inspiration from each other. The amount of creativity out there is amazing. It is fascinating to see how one idea can turn into so many different, but equally fantastic projects. With this in mind, Wood you like to craft? was born. Wood you like to craft? is a bloggers craft group. We have gathered four fun blogs that have a love for wood crafts. Each month we will be creating on project selected by the "host." Then each of the other bloggers will take a turn showing their variation of the same craft. But we want you to join in too! We will have a week long link party so you can make and share your take on the month's craft. We can't wait to see all the twists and turns one project can take!

My take on the Organizer

Just finished my take on the Organizer I've made two different ones, The first one ended up to small so I made another one. The reason I picked this one over the others is that it can grow with you, and can be changed around to any unique style at any time.

The First One

The Larger One

I had a mom ask me to do a Organizer for a craft because her daughter needed one. I have made one before that hangs in my bathroom that holds necklaces, and hanging earnings, but not so great for studs certainly not hair bows. So that started my search an all purpose organizer some don't quite fit that category but thought they were cute.  So this first one is the one I'm going to make for a craft class for August, I like it because of the fact you can change and design the inside anyway you want with accessories that are sold at almost type of hardware store. I've got all the stuff to make a sample but just haven't gone out to endure the heat to make the frame for the peg board. But by next week it will be done.

 Love this Idea also, I'm going to have to make me one of these also. a Magnet makeup holder. I have drawer to put it in, but find I always leave it on top of the counter.


If anyone would like to try one of the others let me know, We'll make a craft day.
