New Series: Refashion Fridays

A new post series, Refashion Fridays, begins today.  I will search through my Pinterest and favorite blogs, and anywhere I can to find some awesome ideas to share.  And of course make you all crazy to try them yourself!  I know that’s how I get whenever I am on Pinterest or find a really awesome DIY blog!

To start today, we have Refashion Fridays: Jackets!

January: Organize with an Etsy Treasury!

In an effort to find cool organizers, I’ve hit up Etsy to make an Organization Treasury!  I want so many of these items.  Instead, I will have to seek inspiration from them!

I’m really making progress.  I’m gone through all my clothes and set aside this HUGE pile to alter for my April: Sewing month.  I’ve donated a bunch of clothes and moved all my summer and warm weather clothes out of my closet so I can see and wear all my cold weather clothes.  Maybe I will donate more after the winter!  I’ve started cleaning off my dresser.  I’ve cleaned up a whole corner of my room that was trashed with alter-able clothes, art supplies, and papers I can’t identify.  I’ve cleaned up kitchen cabinets and have posted things on Craigslist to sell!  I am moving along nicely 🙂  And no worries, I am taking before and after photos to prove that I am doing it!

And because I read it somewhere and it sounded fun, I think I will make a digital scrapbook for the year of each month to document what I’m getting done or experiencing.  This month will show vast improvement!  Now on to the treasury!

Penguins!

I’m a SUPER penguin lover!  So be prepared to see many adorable penguins on here!  This one is a big favorite.  I want him so badly!  He looks SO soft and cuddly!   You can buy him here at Pier1 and then go home and cuddle him 🙂
