Hold It All Desk Organizer with Drawer

Happy chilly November from western Pennsylvania!

The colorful autumn leaves have almost all fallen. 
Only a few golden oak leaves remain...they like to hang on till the dead of the winter.

The autumn breezes are getting bone chilling!
Winter will be here in the blink of an eye.  
Brrrr  :(
It's that time again for some delicious, homemade hot cocoa and those cozy, soft flannel sheets are a must have!

Finally...I got off my derriere and took some photos of the organizer I created that I have been talking about in past posts.

The organizer measures 12 inches high x 9 3/4 inches wide x 7 inches deep.

The free tutorial is from Deb's Creative Choas.
It was so fun and easy to create!

I used Tim Holtz French Industrial Paper Stash and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
The drawer knob is also a Tim Holtz product!
The sides are adorned with vintage ephemera from the paper stash and glued to medium weight chipboard. 
The small added detail of the brads holding the ribbon is from my stash.

Below is a photo of the organizer being put to good use on my desk.
I think it is a down right disgrace that the vintage map on the back of it has to be hidden!

Hope you enjoyed my creation.

Don't forget to take some time to create your life!

  2. Wow, I loved that construction, very innovative! First I wondered which paper stash you used, but then I realized I have the same in y drawer, it is just underneath, hehe... thank for reminding to use it ;-)

    1. Thank you Ruth...we are all here to enable each other!!!

  3. Wow, looks fantastic and useful too! And it's got a real drawer! If I could make things like this, I would sell them on Etsy!

    1. Thanks Zsuzsa! It has become very useful, though it has taken up a little more space on my table. Maybe I should get a larger table to accommodate it! LOL

  4. Quite beautiful Cindy! I love the pattern paper you used, especially the map. I agree it's a shame that it doesn't get seen, lol. This would make a beautiful gift too. Thanks for sharing it!
    Big Hugs!

    1. Thank you, Reeah!
      The thought has crossed my mind to make a couple more as gifts. I don't know....I have to think on it some more yet!

  5. Greeting Cindy it is very chilly here also in the Northwest. Love the organizer, what a fun and clever idea.
