Baseball Cap Rack Organizer

Hola!  Two weekends ago I finally, finally organized my linen closet.  My small linen closet.  Stashed in the middle of all those towels and sheets were my husband's and son's ball caps.  Yep, they occupied an entire shelf along with a plastic bin of candles.  Totally does not make sense and I am embarrassed to say it has been like this since we first moved into our house.  The hubs did not have anywhere to put his few ball caps so he stored them in the linen closet "for the mean time" and eleven years later the ball caps multiplied and never found that permanent home.  Enter the Perfect Curve Cap Rack 36 System and my boys' ball caps now look like this:

Ahhhhhhhhh!


Before they looked like this in the linen closet:

Since it was my mission to organize the linen closet, I also had to find a new and permanent home for all of those baseball caps.  I found the cap rack system at Bed, Bath and Beyond for $19.99 and I used my $5 off coupon so it was just over $15 total. A coupon girl I am.

I dumped all the caps on the floor and assigned the "Keeping & Donating" duty to my son since the hubby was not home.  He was happy to oblige and have a little bit of power.  :)



It took longer than I thought to assemble this thing because you have to force each individual cap holder onto the black rope.  Having to force "snap or pop" it into place took a few minutes on the first two but then I got the hang of it.  Once you pop it into place you can adjust each holder up and down as much as you need. 



Place the hook wherever you desire on the closet door, attach bungee-like rope (there is no attachment for the rope to place at the bottom of the door.


Here is what one of the ball cap holders looks like once snapped on the rope.



I found it easier to put a holder on the rope, insert a cap and then move onto the next.  This way I could tell how much room I needed for the next cap.  Here is what each holder looks like once on the rope and with a cap in it.  You fold the back of the ball cap in and then slide it underneath the top clip (it opens up slightly without resistance).

 Bottom view:


Each clip holds up to three caps but I did not want to do that and since we pretty much got rid of half the ball caps, each cap was able to be on its own without any roommates.  :)


Mama is happy and once I finished the cap rack project I started working on the linen closet.  I'm an organizing fool right now!  :)

Glass Vase Snowman Decor {Craft DIY}

Hello peeps!  Who is still stuffed from all of the Thanksgiving deliciousness?  Or broke from those fab after-Thanksgiving sales?  I don't do the whole crazy shopping thing but I am stuffed and happy.  I got to watch lots of t.v. and in my jammies.  Woot!  

On to my latest project, except I made this last year so I'm kinda lying.  I never got to share this with you guys because of lots of computer problems.  Anywho, I made a snowman using two floral vases.



I was inspired to make this snowman after I saw another blogger make with decor with round floral vases.  She used different glitter for each vase and then topped each one with a witch hat.  It was classy and cute.  And darn.  I wish I could remember that blogger and her site. 
Well here is how I got down to business when making this snowman.

Supplies:
2 - round floral vases 1 - sponge brush Mod Podge 1 - small jar of white glitter 2 - sheets black felt w/glitter scissors craft or felt glue 2 - lids from food canisters (like oatmeal) …

Organizing da Hair Accessories

Before my daughter was born it was just the hubby, our boy and me.  I only had me to worry about when it came to all things hair.  Then baby girl came along and little by little the hair accessories, combs, brushes and everything else started to pile up and take over my middle bathroom drawer.  Up until a couple of weeks ago my hair accessory drawer looked like this:


It was so bad and I couldn't stand it any longer.  Actually it had been quite some time that I could not stand but I finally got around to organizing it.  While still on holiday vacation in early January, the kids and I took a field trip to The Container Store.  One of my new favorite stores.  Love!

After browsing, browsing, browsing and more browsing I finally got down to business.  Mainly because the kids were getting restless otherwise I could have spent the whole day there and compiled a huge wish list.  I came home with some Linus drawer organizers and after a major make-over our hair accessories bathroom drawer lo…

Dallas Cowboys Yarn Wreath {Craft DIY}

Happy September, everyone!  I love this month not only because it means that Fall is around the corner but because it is also my birth month.  I turned 38 a week ago and I'm embracing my new age just like I do every other age.  Go me!  :)

Anywho, let's get down to it shall we?  September also means the start of football season so what better way to kick it off then with a little pride of our favorite NFL team.  Yep, yep!  This week I thought I would show off a wreath I made at my boy's request.  He wanted some Dallas Cowboys decor and a wreath was the first thing that came to my mind.  I did not want it to be too girly so this is the best that I could create in my mind and the execution wasn't too bad.  I mean he does like it so I guess that's good, right?  
I present to you my Dallas Cowboys yarn wreath.

After making this Valentine yarn wreath I said I would never do one again but I figured that making a football wreath out of yarn would be better than ribbon.  We…
