Projects in Progress

These are projects that are still in the creation stage: I have the ideas in my head of how I want them to look and to perform, but they still need some tweaking!

Here's a smaller version of a coupon/receipt holder that I would like to create:

Here's an almost finished "Mom's Organizer" (still working on the name!) - it will hold shopping lists, a coupon envelope, a place for store "club" cards...still working out the details. Sometimes I have to set projects aside for awhile until inspiration hits me again!

Blue & Brown Paper Combos

I am uploading these three paper layouts for a client....

Tuscan Recipe Clipboard

I've had so much fun making recipe boxes I decided to add a little twist! Now I've designed a Recipe Clipboard. I always have a tough time reading my recipe cards when they're laying flat on the counter and they usually wind up with a bit of the ingredients on them! So I decided to design a clipboard that's just a little larger than the recipe cards - it measures 9" x 6" and has a hole in the top of the clip so that you can hang it on a hook, etc. I think that I will use a small plate stand to set mine in on my kitchen counter, but you could just lean it up against the wall or hang it too. I've embellished the clipboard with sage & brown ribbon and have antiqued the edges to give it that "old world" look. I'm including 20 recipe cards - the ones that are shown in the picture.

Beautiful Clipboard, Card and Gift Bag Set

I've been busy creating again!

This is a great gift set for a teacher's gift, co-worker or friend's birthday or just an "I'm thinking of you" kind of gift! I've used coordinating papers so all of the colors go really nicely together. The gift "bag" (it's made out of heavy cardstock) measures 5" tall by 4.25" wide and 1.75" deep. I've included a piece of pretty tissue to wrap the gift in :~) The clipboard measures 5 1/2" x 3 1/2" and is covered on both sides. The notepad measures 5" x 2 3/4" and has 20 lined sheets of white paper. The card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4", is blank on the inside and comes with a white envelope. All of the items fit perfectly into the gift bag. There's also room to fit the recipient's favorite candy or perhaps a gift card...

I am so excited about my very first product review! Kristi did such a nice job in giving me a "glowing" review on her website: Check it out and who knows, you might just be the winner of her giveaway!

This is my Designer Debs Menu Planner/Grocery List!!

Designer Debs Etsy Shop is wonderful. You can get a wide variety of handmade notebooks, journals, clipboards, notepads, recipe boxes, baby blankets, and so much more!

If you are looking for custom work, this is the shop for you. I was given a
menu planner/grocery list clipboard to try out and I love it when I am sitting down on Sunday afternoon to figure out what my family will eat for the week. I have a bin next to the frig that I keep all my menu planning items. We all staples in our pantries, well since I received this planner, this has become a staple in my kitchen.

For my family to stick to a menu is an astonishing thing. We usually always decide that we want something else, but since I received this, we have been doing wonderful at sticking to it. So I must thank Debbie with
Designer Debs for her great menu planner/grocery list for helping to keep my family on track.
