Simply Organized Sunday

Welcome to Simply Organized Sunday…SOS for short. Every Sunday I showcase blogs, websites or posts that provide innovative approaches to organizing and designing your craft space as well as other areas in your home.


I was so excited to see this post from Woohome outlining 21 ideas to declutter your kitchen countertops.


What a great idea for your spices! I also love #10, installing a flip down shelf. This shelf would also work great in a craft room!

I hope you are having a simply organized Sunday!

Make it in Minutes Monday

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday. I thought it would be fun to feature quick and easy cards and projects that take only minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them

I am in love with Anna Griffin’s Ornaments Cricut cartridge and I can’t wait to make more ornaments.


I used my Cricut Maker to cut Anna Griffin 6x6 inch card stock from my stash. To cut the thicker paper, I created a custom setting of 299 and single cut. I set the pressure setting to “more” because the paper was thicker than most of her 12 x 12 papers.


For the 3D angel ornament, I used image # M351B194.


The 3D star ornament was made using #M351A875 and for the 3D bell I used image #M35089FF. I love how you could use the bell and the star for table decorations or ornaments.

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous Monday!

Manito Park

We decided to take a long weekend trip to Spokane, Washington. Spokane is a city of about 215,000 and is a great place to take in local eateries, the river walk, and especially this hidden gem, Manito Park. We went hoping for fall colors and got lucky. My husband Bill  took these amazing photos.


Bridge over the Koi pond.


Another view or the Koi pond.



Wouldn't you like to sit on that bench?


Looking up into the canopy.


A farewell view of the Japanese Gardens.


The park has four other gardens as well. This one featured displays of tall grasses. The tallest clumps in back are at least six feet tall.


The neighborhoods around Manito Park are beautiful as well. I would love to drive this view everyday!

I hope you enjoyed photos from our short trip and please come back next week for more fun projects and ideas.
