It's been so fun to see all the photos and organization ideas that have come in.  A {{big}} thank you to all who contributed, wish I could include them all!

Here are my favorites!!

Create & Babble

Oh how I love mason jars. They're fantastic for so many things...from a fun sunny day drink, to salads, to organizing!!

Check out Jeanie Hevener's beautiful blog, Create & Babble. Thank you Jeanie for sending over such a fun idea and giving us another reason to be obsessed with mason jars {I need to find those lids!!!}.

Don't you love when you have such similar tastes as your friends? My best friend Kiesha Yokers sent me this photo and it made me smile.

Not only does she love Expedit bookcases as much as I do, but we have the same striped bins from the Container Store {I've seen similar ones at Hobby Lobby}.

The main reason I love this photo though, is how she has displayed her books by color. Books are one of my most favorite things to decorate with {see here & here}...they're almost pieces of art themselves. She did a fantastic job bringing the beauty out of them by grouping them together!

Have you ever been to Megan Brooke Handmade? You need to, she's so creative.

She sent me several fun jewelry organization ideas, but this one was my favorite. Megan turned an old piece of art into a cool and funky way to display earrings. Love it.

My sweet friend, Wendy Needham also had a fantastic jewelry idea {she has fun ideas for everything}...I love how she turned a ceramic egg crate into earring storage.

I've seen them at several shops lately, but I believe she got hers at World Market.

My aunt Vicky has an amazing craft room. I could have used every single photo she sent me.

I think the way she displays her punches is so creative. Just resting them on bars mounted onto the wall makes them not only easy to access, but a fun wall feature.

clothes pins

I love Peaches idea {from Aunt Peaches} and how she uses pretty clothespins to show which files are important and need to be dealt with.

flip flops

What a fabulously creative idea, using mail holders for flats and flip flops!

{wish I had the source for this one!}
