Most of you know, I don't like paying very much for anything. And if I can make it for nothing--even better. I was browsing the web when I found some creative ways other people have been organizing their jewelry.
Most of this stuff can be found in your garage or kitchen.
Run to the garage and find that old rake. I have no clue who created the rake organizer in the photo to the left, but you can see--it's simple to make.
We found this bulletin board (below) on CreativePotential.net where Pam Vale took a simple bulletin board and made it a piece of art. You can probably buy a padded board at your local craft store or pad a cork board yourself.
The Shopping Duck has another easy idea. How about making a jewelry organizer from a wire cube storage piece. You can probably make a bunch of them and really dress them up.
Now do your Spring cleaning and before you toss anything away--give it a second look and see if it can have a second life as a jewelry organizer. Please feel free to share it with us.

|Decoupage a wooden hanger|
Then I found my inspiration when I was browsing the web. I found this photo. I would love to give credit to the person who took the photo, but I could not find it. I would love to give credit to the crafter who made these hangers too, but I have no clue who made them.
Look closely, someone decoupaged beautiful flower paper on the wooden hangers. Wouldn't this make a great gift for a woman?
I also found a great video tutorial on how to decoupage on wood. Here's the YouTube video.
Now go raid your closets and start making gifts out of those wooden hangers.
Happy crafting! Please share my blog.

|Owner, Ashlea Boelhouwer Robertson|
The wallpaper on one side of the store was just old newspapers. On another side of the room, the wall was one big chalkboard. It's a colorful place packed with many handmade products. You can get lost in all the creativity.
Owner, Ashlea Boelhouwer Robertson creates most of the jewelry, canvas art, and much more in this boutique. She also offers art classes in a back room of the store.
I chatted with Ashlea and quickly learned here was a woman who followed her passion. She decided one day it was time to open her own store, and sell her own art work. She shared her back room with me and it was wonderful. The room was full of every tool she needed to get creative.
Thanks Ashlea for spending time with me!
