Organize Your Stuff: Week 9 Embellishment Progress Report

Good Afternoon,
Been a busy week with summer activities, cleaning, and many errands...
this past four weeks I have been working on embellishments for Organize your stuff challenge. . As I was cleaning and gathering alot of my embellishment, I was discovering forgotten things I had. lol
the first picture show how I'm sorting things by colors-all ribbons, button, anything that I find will be store here until I decide how I'm going to store them. the second picture is the cropper hopper box I purchased from a pea on sale board. so far I'm liking this storage idea.  I will show more picture of this once I finish storing  and labeling them the third picture is the progress of working on this with my box I put loose embellishment so i can group them.

During this past week, I made two father's day cards for my daddy and brother in law.  this all came from my stash--the card base measure 4 by 11.  the pp on both cards came from a 6 x 6 recipe card swap i did which was leftover--just trim 1.5 off.  on first card-tab and oval shape came from the same pp stash--it was part of kit, silver brad for tab seond card die cut arrow from that same pp stash, ribbon from leftover from previous stash, CTMH Fishing stamp. I also faux stitch on the first card and both inside of card. Hope you enjoy.  I kept it simple and quick for me. It was hard for me to come up for my daddy as he doesn't wear tie and don't do other sports. lol

I'm working on a third father's day  card for my bf--going to include my daughter as well. I'm also working on my son's invitations. My goal for tonite is to finish the card and get the monkey cut out.
off to do some cleaning and make supper (i know it's early but bf had a doc apt and want him to eat before he go then he work at 8). Talk to you soon!
