Guest Post : Creative Storage Solutions

Hello! I’m so happy to be helping Kelly by guest blogging during her maternity leave! My name is Jody and I’ve been fortunate enough to meet the new mommy through our involvement as Weddingbee.com bloggers. (I’m Mrs. Deviled Egg.) In addition to sharing my wedding story, I started a home blog, Creativity & Domesticity, where I post about renovations, decorating, recipes and crafty stuff.

One of my favorite things to do lately is shopping for things to make my house feel more like home. The rooms in our house are on the small side, so I have to be careful not to add too much and clutter it up. I’m always on the lookout for inexpensive and creative storage solutions that add style and function to our decor, so I thought I’d share some of my favorites.

I love this rustic crate-style organizer and think it would work great in a craft room or office. I can also see it as a display for small collectibles, like a variety of sea shells or vintage photographs and cameras, as shown.

Thinking of craft room storage, I would love to have a set up like this. I really like how the desk is made from open shelving units. This helps keep items easily accessible while your working. Shelves are an inexpensive base for a desk and you can use re-purpose an old door or used counter top to make a work surface.

Re-purposing everyday items for storage is such a great idea. I have a few, old muffin tins that would be perfect for use as jewelry storage. I can also see these tins filled with buttons and small scrapbooking supplies.

Of course, finding a way to organize pretty necklaces, bracelets and earrings that doubles as wall decor is also ideal. Collapsible peg racks like this one can be found on the cheap at any discount store.

My all time favorite re-purposed storage item is an old library card catalog. The drawers are perfect for stashing and organizing smaller items and the labels and draw pulls keep everything orderly and at your fingertips.

It would be a great addition to an office or craft space. Imagine all of the different sewing notions you could keep in one!

And the options aren’t limited to one room. I love the idea of using one as a buffet in your dining room or turning one into a bar for wine bottle storage.

Card catalogs can be hard to come by, but you can often find one listed on eBay or on Craigslist. They are also rather costly and heavy to transport. However, if you find one and are able to get it into your home, it is well worth the effort! The possibilities for storage are endless and they look fantastic in any space.

    9月に入ったとはいえ、まだまだ暑い日が続いていますね。朝晩は肌寒いのに、日中は夏日という日も少なくありません。ファッションに敏感な女子達はもう頭は秋冬モード、夏のファッションに戻りたくない! という人も多いのではないでしょうか? しかし、いつまでも夏ファッションを続けるのも、おしゃれとは言い難いですよねそんな夏と秋の狭間で揺れる今、どんなファッションをすればいいのか? 気温にも、トレンドにも対応するマル秘テクニックをご紹介致します鉄則:秋冬感は「小物」で醸し出せ!まず、今の時期のような端境期のファッションの大原則は、「取り入れられるところから次の時期のファッションにチェンジする」ということ。この“取り入れられるところ”が小物ということになります。日中は長袖ではまだまだ暑い、なのでこれをニットに変えることは不可能ですよね。「おしゃれはガマン!」といえども、これでは周りの人から暑苦しく思われてしまう可能性もあります。そこで小物から秋を感じさせるものに変えていく、という方法があるのです。具体的なアイテムをご紹介します①サンダル→ブーツ、パンプス、スニーカーに夏に大活躍したサンダル達。9月に入ってからも履いている女子を多く見かけますが、これは全くもっておしゃれではありません。今多く出ている、秋冬用(素材がスエード等でタイツやソックスを合わせる前提)のサンダルならまだしも、夏感丸出しのサンダルは絶対にNG。これをブーツ(できればショート)、パンプス、スニーカー等の靴に変えましょう。これだけでも大分秋冬感が醸し出せます②かごバッグ→レザーやスエード素材のものに夏のバッグをそのまま使っているのもNG。濃いめの色味で、秋冬を感じさせる素材のものに変えましょう。もちろん、秋冬用のかごバッグ(ファーやフェザーを使っているもの)ならOK!

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips for inexperienced blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
