Cleaning Up the Cleaning Up Stuff

In our laundry room, I have an extra closet. Yay for storage! We keep our crates of bottled water, the vacuum, the steam vacuum, and out-of-season coats in there. I had all of my larger cleaning tools in there too but it was kind of a mess. I needed the shelf of the closet to hold our pool bag which was okay because the cleaning tools were just hanging up out there and they'd get pushed to the back where I couldn't reach them. The swiffer and broom were standing in the corner which meant they'd fall over all the time.
Ikea to the rescue. We added a Bygel rail to this piece of wood that was on the back of the closet door.
I added a few Bygel hooks and a few other, plastic Ikea hooks that don't seem to be available anymore.
With a cheap and fast fix, I have a place for cleaning tools, my clothespins, and some room to grow! Now if I could just get Bass to downsize all of his coats!

Make a Card Monday - Camping Adventure

I was inspired by this card to make my masculine birthday cards for this year. I liked the wood grain and the paper flags. My version ended up like this:
And the inside:

cardstock: green card base and mats (Stampin Up!), brown (unknown), white (Georgia Pacific)
patterned paper: Lakeside (Pebbles) brown woodgrain (unknown)
embellishments: brads (Making Memories), copper Liquid Pearls
color: Jardin Moss ink (Palette), colored pencils (Prismacolor)
tools: foam dots (Studio G)
stamps: Camp Out (images and top sentiment) and Great Greetings (The Angel Company)
