Organization, thy name is Baskets

I have been having a serious issue with losing things lately. My keys. My glasses! Had to buy new ones. My phone! Had buy a new one of those too. And the lost items have since been located by my husband and 3 year old son several days later.

What. The. Hell?

So clearly I need a better organizational system. Since I can’t afford to go nuts at The Container Store, I’ll just crochet myself a few of these babies and hang them above my night stand. One for glasses and phone, keys, and work ID badge.

Nothing like a good free pattern to get you jazzed about not losing your crap.

Resolution #1! Get Organized!

I don’t know about you but I’ve got one resolution down already! Organize my hooks and needles. Score!

I was considering buying one of those pleather zip cases at Michael’s but I saw this done in a yarn store and thought “why the hell am I not doing that?!”

Simple. Cheap. And fun to look at! I found the containers at a thrift shop for about $2 each and filled them dried pinto beans! Nifty, right? Totally my new favorite part of my crafty area.

Resolution #2? Nope. That was pretty much it. I aim low to keep from disappointment to a minimum. Happy New Year!

The Only 6 Pack I Will Ever Have! Craft Caddy Coolness!

I’m not typically a connoisseur of the pale ales but every Fall I do look forward to good pumpkin beer. If you haven’t had one, they are GOOD! But you have to get a decent one like these by Blue Moon. Give it a go! They are crisp with a hint of pumpkin spice on the end that’s not too sweet and goes well with hot chili in a cool night. And when you’ve had 2 or 3 or…5 and you’re left with the cardboard box poised and ready for trash bin, STOP!

Just stop right there! The fun has not ended, mon amie! That packaging like the one pictured above is about to become your craft caddy! No way, you say? Yes way! Here’s how.
