My basement rearrange/reorganize is complete, but I wanted to show you a couple of the things that I did to keep certain things corralled with a little touch of cute. I'll start with the beloved Washi tape. My original container was getting a little full and I also wanted to display it more with all the beautiful, bright colors. So, I was on the hunt for a clear container to do the trick. I first thought a couple Mason Jars would be perfect but I decided I didn't really want to dig through (or have to dump it out) to get what I wanted. So I found this:
Next up is this other lovely container that I came across.
This last little bit is more of a DIY than a thing to organize. With Valentine's Day being tomorrow, I wanted to give Peanutty and Sweet Pickles teachers a little something fun, rather than candy.
So, using my sweet scraps I saved out of the remnants bin at Hancock Fabricks, some hair ties, buttons I had on hand, and some medium weight interface (I JUST learned what this was about 5 days ago...thank you MS [she gives me sewing/crafting advice]), a java jacket from Starbucks (I did order a chai so it's not like I stole it) and with a little help (OK, a lot of help) from Pinterest, I came up with these:

Sometimes it's the little fun things that you can do to spruce a space up! In this case, it was the fun plastic containers I found at Walmart! A little tape, a little paper, a few labels and you have added a personal touch to a simple item! I love the way it all turned out!
Hope you all have a most wonderful Valentine's Day!!!
