some label love ... ♥

happy Tuesday! ♥
this is the last week of school for my girls
we can't wait 'till summer vacation officially starts!
i see all these neat ideas on Pinterest for summer fun ... then ... i forget 
 outta sight...outta mind
this way all those ideas are in one spot...quick & easy access
the girls & i are really excited about some of them!

so now that the shades in my craft space are done, let's label, label, label stuff!
then i can check another to-do off the list :)

for the small canvas bins, i found these brackets at Joanns
...from Tim Holtz (i love the vintage look of his stuff)

 a little spray paint and presto...pretty 
the little brads come in the package... they push right through the canvas and hold the hardware quite nicely :)

wow! doesn't it make a big difference?
 (well, ok to me it does cause i stare at these a lot)

for the little blue baskets I used mini chalkboards (from Joanns too :)
and a clothespin to clip them on ~ i use chalkboard markers like these
(spruce up your clothespins with a little paper &  Mod Podge!)

painted wooden numbers on the large canvas bins were sewn on 
with a large tapestry needle and some chunky yarn

all done ♥

a couple other ideas...
i wanted to show you what's lives on the top of my island

 these are the supplies & tools that get the most use
i wanted to make them easily accessible when i'm working on different projects

the big white bowl in the middle is for garbage

tea cups, mason jars & copper jello molds are great for all the little things ♥

i'm still learning to think outside the box for storage or organization ideas...
sometimes when you mix & match things together, it makes it all the more your own
... i found all of the pedestal dished at garage sales ♥ 
no more than a one or two dollars each :)

thanks for stopping by!
with gladness in my ♥
some sweet parties ♥ ...
