Here’s What I’ve Been Up To…

I have been having a fun time taking old hardcover books and making organizers from scraps.  They can be used for just about anything…photos, mail, coupons, recipes etc.  I have been making them for everyone.  They are really fun and go very quickly.  Please enjoy the photos!


Here is a look at one I made as a birthday gift for a friend.  For this one, I covered the inside cover with paper and then hand cut the flowers from another piece of scrapbook paper and glued those down:

Here is the same book as a close up:

Here is a photo of one my hubby keeps on his desk.  For this one, I just used paper to cover the inside covers:

Desk Organizer Mister 1

Here is another view, as you can see he is already using it for his coupons for McDonalds:

Desk Organizer Mister 2

Just fold the pages in half and decorate the inside of covers.  The book will always stay open, so there is no need to decorate the outside covers.

How To: Leave a Link When Leaving Comments

I hope you are all having a great week! I have had some of you ask how I leave my link when leaving comments on your blogs, so I thought I would share it with everyone. It's a simple code that I add at the bottom of my remark and here it is:

<a href=””>NAME OF YOUR BLOG</a>

So, for example, here is mine:
<a href=””>Queen Bee Studio</a>

Want to leave your email address?'s how to do that:


Here is how mine would look:
<a href=””>Queen Bee</a>


Yes, you can post both codes at once. Have a wonderful day!
