Change is good, right?? Well, we are mixing things up a bit here on the blog and bringing you a few new series, including Weekend Wow. Every month, I’ll share some small crafty or DIY-like project that I’ve enjoyed creating recently. The best part? It’s something that didn’t take me forever — in fact each project only takes a weekend’s time (or less!). Let me know what you think about the first one! xo, Tobi
Life is generally pretty great in our office. We all get along, we enjoy lunches together and we get A LOT done! We did have one small (and rather unsightly) problem at TFID though… an out-of-control, mess-and-a-half, growing-mountain-of-groceries pantry. Trust me, it was bad. If I had a before shot, I would not publish it. I mean, who knew eight girls could create such chaos in a pantry?
We ignored the problem for a while until my dear, sweet mother, Bebe, realized we needed help and made an emergency trip to The Container Store. Praise the Lord! She came back from the shopping excursion with super durable and stylish baskets — one for each of us. Now, being the creative type I couldn’t stop there. Crafting soon ensued as we all thought of ways to personalize our baskets, finally settling on individual name tags.
We took to our scrap fabric and each of us found a piece that was “her.” Our house mother–ahem, office manager–Margaret, made tags and we each spent a few minutes crafting these labels to personalize our bins.
Pretty cute, huh?
When we were all finished the organized display looked a little something like this…
Now all that’s left to wonder is how long it will stay like this!!
