"Organize This Mess" Blog Hop

Welcome to "Organize This Mess" Blog Hop - brought to you by the Amazing Paper Piecings By Nikki. 
One of the biggest complaints in our papercrafting world (no, it's not that you need more paper) is that we are unorganized. Our stuff is everywhere and never where we need it to be. It would be great if everything had a place and stayed in it's place!

That's what this hop is hoping to do - inspire you to get organized. Nikki has a great organizational file to help with this and I used it for my project today! Please hop along with us - if you do, and you leave a comment at every place along the way, you will be eligible to win some blog candy, that is sure to help add to your clutter!

If you just happened by and want to start at the beginning, please start with Kimberly. If you have come here from Mindy, then you are in the right spot.

These jars once contained scented candles. After they burned fully, I cleaned them out and stored them away. They are now home to my over-sized brads, small pieces of ribbon (the kind that's just enough for something...) and my special buttons. They look so cute on my shelf with Nikki's labels!

My Grandest Daughter, Lexi, is always wanting to put a tag on something. I simply printed out a bunch of Nikki's blank tags, cut them out, and then put them in this little box which sits on my craft table. Now, when ever she needs to label something - give a gift to someone, she can find one and use it. Of course, Nikki's piecings are sooooooooo cute on the tags, she takes my piecings too. I WON'T be making a box for piecings...after all, if she can't find them, she can't use them.....teeee heeeee!!!

Thanks for hopping by and I hope I've inspired you. Please leave a comment, so you can be eligible for the blog candy Nikki is offering, and leave your blog address, I'd love to come visit you too. The next stop will be my amazing sister, Linda.

Oh I LOVE both of your ideas! My mom-in-law used to give me yankee candles for every occasion, I have a ton of them! This would be a great way to use the jars! I also like your tag idea. I have a little 5 year old neighbor who plays at my house all the time, she would love this!

This is such a great idea. Love this Hop. I use a jar for the small little ribbon spools and bits that need a home. Thanks for the inspiration and can't wait to see the rest of the hop.
Have a great day!
