Organize with Handmade Bins
Make use of your fabric ends and get organized at the same time. With a few minutes and a few fabric scraps you can sew up a set of organizer bins for your closet, your office shelf or any other place that starts to look cluttered and out of control. I love these!
Mark your Calendars- April 29 is Poem in Your Pocket Day
Heads up paper crafters- here’s a day to inspire us!
Take a day for poetry in April and join the Academy of American Poets in celebrating the third national Poem in Your Pocket Day, during National Poetry Month.
The idea is simple: you select a poem, pocket it, carry it, and then share it with family, friends, and coworkers throughout the day.
Here’s where we can get super-crafty… wouldn’t it be cool to create poetry cards for our friends to share too? Ooh… the ideas are flowing! I’m thinking of using the printer to create a vellum paper rendition of a favorite poem, then simply attaching it to a nice cardstock with brads or ribbon.
What are your ideas?
If you don’t want to go the “craft” route, you can still easily partake in this fun day by printing or emailing poems from a selection on Poets.org
