Normally on Mondays I have a layout to share with you. Unfortunately, I am battling an eye infection and cannot scrapbook. :( BUT! I did not want to leave you empty handed, so I thought I would share with you the way I store my flowers. Just in case you might be looking for an idea for storing yours. ;)
Like most people, I sort my larger flowers by color families in large jars. These jars are plastic and are actually from Target's "Archer Farms" Chocolate covered Pretzel Rods. If I remember right, I bought a bunch of them, sent the pretzels to my kids' classes for a holiday treat and then kept the jars for myself. Hehehehe! The sneaky ways of a scrapbooker! :D
For my smaller flowers, I sort them into smaller plastic containers (found at Target in the Scrapbook section) inside of an Iris 12 X 12 plastic case. I really like this system because they are all together, don't get scrunched, and I can stack them on my shelf vertically to save space. :)
Finally, I had to show you this cute idea to use with the Core Curriculum kit (sorry, sold out). It's a Homework Carousel using the Making Memories Desktop Carousel. I did not make this. This was an idea featured on our local news station's daytime show by a our local craft store. It was just too cute, not to pass on! :)
Grab yourself a jar of ModPodge and your Core Curriculum kit. Cut paper to fit the flat areas of the organizer and ModPodge them on. When you are finished, you have a darling organizer to hold all the homework essentials! Fill it with pencils, erasers, a calculator, a pencil sharpener, a ruler, scissors, glue sticks and more! You could even add an after-school snack! Or, if you prefer, each child could have their own section to keep their specific supplies handy. Fun, huh?!
I am TOTALLY making one of these when my eyes are better and I will share it with you when I get it finished. :) Love this idea!
