* An Organized Studio

In anticipation of organizing my studio, I have created a few collages.  They will decorate the front of my file folders.  I do love pretty files.  A fun project which doesn't take much time and brings a smile to my face when I'm organizing my collage images and ephemera.  Thought you might like to see them.  Here goes.

I haven't made up the file folder yet, however I will photocopy a number of these, cut around the outside with patterned scissors and use a spray adhesive to attach.  They make wonderful hand made gifts for anyone who loves to organize and wants their file cabinet to be pretty and at least somewhat amusing.
To jumpstart the bringing of order into your home, here are four old-fashioned rules that
can change the quality of your daily life beginning today.

1. If you take it out, put it back.
2. If you open it, close it.
3. If you throw it down, pick it up.
4. If you take it off, hang it up.”     From Simple Abundance, by Sarah Ban Breathnach


  1. Oh I love these Lady D, so colourful.

  2. Happy to see your creative self is still active even if the rest of you has the flu. These sheets are hilarious and would make anyone smile and want to search inside the folders.

    Who would think to decorate their filing folders, but Donna D.

    Get well, my friend.

  3. Thanks, Salma.

    Carolyn, I'm afraid that was 'my creative self' awhile ago. I'm trying to fill in a little space while I'm ill. They are fun to do though.
