January is “Get Organized Month” and we’ve got some projects perfect for getting the holiday clutter all in a row so you can tackle the new year like a pro! Whether it’s your craft room, office or even your mental space; organization is a tried-and-true destresser and a wonderful creative motivator. Finding your favorite ink and tools becomes a no brainer instead of an epic treasure hunt.
For the past four years I’ve been picking a single word that is my guide for the next 12 months. I like to put this word some place I’m going to see it a lot, so my planner is the perfect place to showcase it. The paper planner community has been growing by leaps and bounds, lately, and custom dashboards are a great way to personalize a planner. This dashboard is designed for an A5/half-letter, ring-bound planner, but can easily be made into whatever size or binding style you need.
I have a thing for recycling empty dog food tins – yes they are cheap, economic and very versatile. I start off by painting and distressing them and then adding a personal twist to it using some of my favourite supplies to match my workspace. Using my Imagine Crafts / Tsukineko products makes personalising these tins so easy.
