Etsy Treasury: Red, black, and white

I love, love creating treasuries. I especially love this color combination. Red, black, and white will always be classic. Plus, it reminds me of Minnie Mouse...what could be bad about that :).

Scrapbooking Layout Ideas: Halloween

Halloween is almost here! Break out the costumes and candy. One thing I hate about living in an apartment is that the kids don't Trick-or-Treat (not that I blame parents, I don't think I'd take my kids around in a complex where I barely knew anyone either).

Anyhoo! I went over to and picked some great layouts.

I don't know what is going on with blogger but I can't upload any more preview pictures. Here are some more direct links though.

Craft Room: Organization and Storage Ideas

I was on to look for inspirational Halloween layouts (will post tomorrow) and was stopped in my tracks by this absolutely lovely and well organized craft room.

I don't know about you but I sooo wish that I had a craft room like this. You can get to the link here. The crafter says that the storage cubes were Jet Max. I am pretty sure I saw the same type of organizational cubes in Target in the craft section.

Magnetic spice jars were used to hold some of the smaller items. I have seen this at the container store but I'm sure you can find them cheaper elsewhere.

Make sure to click on the pictures above the article on the page so that you can see close-ups of the room and get descriptions on what was used to organize the space.

Halloween Craft: Ghost pail for candy

Halloween is almost here. Make these too cute candy holders. Made from inexpensive chinese food containers, these can be whipped up in no time. Would be perfect for those class parties or for the fun Halloween party thrown for the kids.

Get instructions on how to make it here
