Newly Organized

Have you noticed my brand new sponsor ThirtysixTen over on my left sidebar?  Click here to find some darling and completely unique pieces of jewelry, that you are instantly going to fall in love with.  My gosh, those stacked rings…….they call to me.  
I’m smitten with this set.  Oh, and the sweetly cut blossoms, like the one found here.  So simple.  So lovely.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

We need to chat.

I know, I know………navigating past projects has been a little tricky here on this site.

Sorry about that.

I have had “organize tutorials” on my to-do-list for a looooong time. 
(Has the long list of tutorials down my left sidebar been scaring you too?  I know, it was a beast.)
Maybe even for a year.

So for a while now, I have been slowly creating a photo list of all of the tutorials, sewing tips, recipes, etc.

And today it’s finally done.

 And I hope it’s helpful…


So take a look up at the top, right below the Make It and Love It header, there is a brand new little button that says “tutorials”…


See it?

If you click on it, you will be directed to a list of categories……..where every project has a new home.

If you scroll through, there are 12 categories.

If you click on any of the 12, you will be directed to a whole new list of projects/tutorials/posts that fall under that specific category.

So if you click on, let’s say, “decorate my home series”………

…… will then find a whole new list of little pictures with titles, showing you what tutorials fall under the “decorate my home series” category.

See all the options?

Go ahead.

Try it.

You can click on this one, or that one, or maybe that other one down there…….


I was having a hard time finding projects I was looking for…… I can only imagine the annoyance for some of you.

So I hope this helps.

Ahhhhh, a bit more organized.  That always makes me feel better.

I need a raspberry lemonade slushy…

  26. Annette says:

    OH!!! Love it!! I just went through this the other day trying to find your basket liner tutorial. :) It's so much better organized now. One thing I've noticed that you do that I LOVE….is that whenever you do a tutorial you put a picture of the finished product FIRST so right away I can tell if I want to bother looking through the rest of it! (with yours I always look b/c I know it will be super cute…but other bloggers sometimes I end up not caring about the tutorial once I see the finished product at the end. :) ) So..thanks for those pictures at the beginning! Way to go on the organization!

  27. Jaimee Blood says:
