**Updated to add: The font that I used in the binder is called "Curly Cue" and I downloaded it for free on urbanfonts.com. I love that site! Also, someone asked me what my categories are: living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, adult bathrooms, kid bathrooms, adult bedrooms, kid bedrooms, hallways & entryways, dens/offices, porches & patios, exteriors, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, miscellaneous holidays, winter, spring, summer, fall, birthday decorations and crafts. Phew! I bet you can think of lots of others!
A few weeks ago, I showed you how I organized the recipes that I had torn out of magazines. As I was putting that post together, it occurred to me that I could use the same type of binder for my decorating ideas. So here is what I started with: a huge pile of file folders that I have been lugging around with me since before my husband and I were married, adding to them along the way:
I bought the biggest binder that I could find, and, of course, added a cute title page.
And now all my ideas are organized into plastic sleeves by rooms of the house, with a special section for each major holiday and season:
This is so wonderful! It took only about an hour to put everything in it's place, not bad for such a big payoff. The cute fonts that I used are just a bonus for little obsessive ol' me!
