Happy New Year’s Everyone!
Since January is the season of New Year’s resolutions, and I wanted to post about one of mine; “Get Organized.” While this may be easier said than done, I have taken a few drastic steps towards a more organized life. Most recently I was finally able to hang up a wonderful large bulletin board that I made many months ago out of recycled wine corks.
I used two large pieces of particle board that I had been saving, and simply made the board in two square pieces which fitted together into one large rectangle. Using hot glue I attached the corks one by one, doing my best to keep each row as even as possible. I was actually quite surprised at the difference in heights of the different varieties of corks, as well as the different widths, but by fitting shorter corks on top of longer ones, I was able to keep each row roughly even. While completely unnecessary, aesthetically it was something I felt was important. I could have glued the corks on in either direction, but I chose to glue them on vertically next to each other, so that I added each row horizontally as it is now hanging on the wall.
I can’t wait to fill it up with inspirations for both this blog and my business. Right now I’m using a few fabric covered pushpins that I made a while back, but I will probably augment those with a bunch of simple T-pins once I remember where I stashed my supply…
What organizational projects have you undertaken recently? Or what other New Year’s resolutions are you tackling instead?
Happy 2013! Allison
