Filing With Binders – Colored Paper

This is another in my Filing With Binders series.  As a crafter, I use a lot of colored paper as well as Card Stock.  I used to keep in in stacks, but sunlight can discolor it & it gets dusty.  Organizing the paper stacks into binders took care of that problem.  All of my colored paper is now neatly put away in a filing drawer & I can get to it easily.

If you’re not familiar with this series, you can find it here, here, here, here & here.

Baby Blanket Pattern

Any time I’m invited to a baby shower, the one thing that I make sure to include is a handmade baby blanket.  The fleece that you purchase from Joanne’s or Walmart is thicker & usually softer than the store bought blankets.  You can customize them or leave them plain and they are easier to make than you might think.  The variety of colors & patterns are nearly endless, so you can make it to go with any nursery decor. Here’s how I make them:

Filing With Binders – Product Warranties

Walmart & Dollar Tree Haul

Back to school season is always bad for me.  I’ve been obsessed with stationary items since I was a kid.  I love new tablets, paper, note books… you get the idea.  This year was no different.  I’ll be starting off 2018 with all new items.  And when I saw the white & rose gold items at Walmart, I couldn’t resist.
