We’re Organized Wednesday #12 with Gales Designs

The giveaway is now closed, but you can still check out all the great organized ideas linked here.

Welcome to another We’re Organized Wednesday. I can’t wait to see what you’ve all organized over the past 2 weeks. I’ve been working on a lot lately. If you missed anything you can just look back through the last few posts.

Before we start the party, let’s talk pretty jewelry. Gales Designs is sponsoring a beautiful giveaway today. You have your choice of one of these pair of beautiful earrings.   

Don’t you just love how they sparkle and shine?

I would have a hard time deciding which pair I want.

If you win, Beth will get with you to help you decide.

Here’s how you enter:

1 st entry- Visit Gales Designs then come back here and leave a comment telling me your favorite piece of jewelry.

2 nd entry- Leave a comment telling me you favorite pair of earrings if you win.

More entries- Link an organizing tip, idea or project to the party below.

Please leave a separate comment for every entry.

She has a special for the month of September too. With any purchase you get a free polishing cloth. It’s a $2.50 value for free!

Here’s what I organized today. Once I hung Ammon’s corkboard and art supply station, I knew I was going to have to make a place for him to display his masterpieces. (I have plans for that table too.) I haven’t been to Ikea for a year, but luckily when I was there last I bought this great system (I actually bought 2). I think it was around $2. It was originally meant for Adam.

Follow the picture instructions in the bag. You have to supply your own screws. First secure the left side to the wall. There’s a L or a R marked on the piece.

Take the screw out of the small piece then thread the 2 pieces onto the wire.

Bend the wire back , thread it back through the small piece and tighten the screw.

Then screw the cover over the screw in the wall. After trying to get it to screw in for about 5 minutes, hubby pointed out to me that it’s a reverse thread. Yeah, I didn’t know there was such a thing, but apparently you screw it in the opposite direction.

Left side down, right side to go.

First measure the length of wire you need. I did this by pulling the wire straight and marking it. Then cut it with wire cutters.

Do the same thing on this side as you did on the other one. Don’t forget to put the big piece on the wire first, I almost forgot. Loop it again and then screw it into the other wall (or in my case, the wood bed).

And there you go, a place for Ammon’s art creations. He was very excited, then he said, “When are you going to get my table finished?” Hmmm, he’s not demanding, is he!

Let’s see what you’ve been working on. Link up any organizing idea, tip or project you’d love to share. I can’t wait to see them all.

    Hi ! I just popped over from Janet of all Trades. I am new to blogging and I “suck” at organizing!!! I am so looking forward to reading the rest of your site to get some ideas. I did just reorganize my fabric/cutting room and my sewing room and it looks OK, but I am sure that learning a few tricks to keep it that way will really help! Thanks for leaving your info so I could find you.

  • Suesan September 15, 2010, 11:43 am

    It’s hard to pinpoint one item I love. I really like her Sterling silver beads on hammered hoops earrings. They are pretty.

  • Suesan September 15, 2010, 11:45 am

    The light blue pair of earrings is my favorite pair.

  • Kathy Jacobson September 15, 2010, 1:54 pm

    Hi Leanne!

    I love the mothers bracelet. Beautiful! I would have to pick a name to put on it. Otherwise that would be a big bracelet!

  • Kathy Jacobson September 15, 2010, 1:55 pm

    I don’t have my ears pierced so I would give them to Megan. I think the clear or black for her. They would go with a lot for her.

  • Danielle September 15, 2010, 2:31 pm

    I love the Vintage statement necklace.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Teri September 16, 2010, 9:11 am

    The light blue earrings would be my choice!

  • Teri September 16, 2010, 9:13 am

    Since this is a jewelry giveaway, I’ll share my jewelry organization idea: If you use your top drawer for your jewelry like I do, adding a ice cube tray really helps keep those earrings paired up and organized. The plastic trays (while not very beautiful) are cheap and when kept out of sight, a very tidy idea.

  • Rebekah September 16, 2010, 3:11 pm

    the vintage statement necklace is so fun!

  • Rebekah September 16, 2010, 3:13 pm

    I can’t decide if I want the clear or the bright blue…such decisions!!
