TTMT #353 - Do It Yourself


I just realized I posted this to my journal and not the community. Oops!

I forgot to mention the David Bowie Tribute on Fandom in Stitches. You can find that here.

Love all the repurposed frames for family pictures!

Organizing stuff...that's probably next on the list for me, as soon as I can get across the yard when the snow melts. I like the pegboard idea.

Yay for hardhatcat and her new little one! Hope she posts soon! :)

All those Bowie tribute blocks are great...lots of talented people on FiS.

Thanks! I need to do some more scavenging this week so I can find more frames to finish the wall up. It was really fun to work on and there's something really satisfying about seeing them all hanging there.

What I'm finding with the organizing for myself is that it only works if I'm cleaning out. Before, I tended to shift stuff from place to place and it would feel clean but then it would be trashed in no time. I can't tell you how much I've actually gotten rid of. It's felt so good!

We have a good crew on FiS. :)

Also, new baby, yay!

Organizing - an ongoing dilemma for me. I'll get stuff organized and the next day, it looks like the room exploded again. It definitely is NOT my forte!

However, I do appreciate those who are good at it. Love your photo wall. Also love the button idea for earrings. I may have to try that one.

I usually have the same problem with organizing. This time around, I'm clearing stuff out and that is making the most difference, I think. I didn't mention that I shredded enough paper to fill two paper bags and two giant boxes!

What an awesome idea for earrings. Cleaning out jewelry boxes and my dresser top in general is on the list this quarter, and I have a ZILLION buttons so I will definitely be gacking that idea.

I wish a had a blank wall space for the smal pegboard, let alone a design wall. I may end up getting movable storage shelves in there again and taking the giant fixed shelving down, or at least one shelf of it just to have a little more free wall space. Must. Get. Rid. Of . Stuff.

I did something similar with a small wall near our front door but it was all Phebe pics from over the years and she said it weirded her out because she said it looked to much like a shrine of some sort, lol. Most of my pics are of her or your kids though, not of me and Ken. I should still try mixing them up a bit so it doesn't seem so shrine-ey. ;)

That button idea is just what I needed. Clean out ALL THE THINGS!

I pulled down every poster, tack, hook, etc from the wall where the pegboard is. Almost all of my storage is movable, so I have wall space, but figuring out how to use it is the challenge!

Hehe, there is Phebe on my wall, too. :) I've updated a lot of pics I had to include photos from the last few years. I'm also making a wish list. I want pictures of our closest friends, so next time we're together, picture at the beginning before we exhausted and slightly hung over! ;)

I'd rather see the pic of you two when you're slightly hung over.

I need to get some floo powder for serious. I seriously think if I could get you here for a DAY, you could teach me SO much DIY stuff and we would make serious progress...or we would just go get margaritas and talk...which I like that idea too!

LOVE the photo wall! In my old place, I had this weird corner (because the room had stairs to the attic in it, so I had this massive space where I hung fanart from people. Now I have a lot of it spread out in my rooms, but that's gonna have to change, once I get going on my re-arrangement.

OOooh!! Next week I can show so much!!!

I do love the DIY and the Doing All The Things. Mostly I'm just very get er done, which is a trait I inherited from my dad. He's very DIY. I didn't even know there were people you could pay to come to your house and do stuff until I was an adult!

That photo wall makes me super happy. ♥

ALL THE SHOW AND TELL, can't wait to see what you have in store next week!!

I'm enjoying scavenging for frames. I hope to find the last few this week.

Thinking about you, my friend!

The button idea is a pretty great one for wrangling earrings! I'm always losing just one earring (though I don't often wear them anyway, so that doesn't help).

The photo wall is really neat... I love the idea of that kind of thing! It's turning out really well, anyway.

I used to always lose an earring. Woe to all the half pairs! I finally picked up a pack of silicone backs and put them on every pair I own. I haven't lost one since. I have way more than I actually wear!

I'm still searching for frames. Working on the photo wall has been very fun!
