Happy New Year! Shannon here. It's good to be back after 2 months hiatus! Michaels challenged us this month to start the new year off with a project we've been wanting to do for a long time, but never found the time or motivation to do... PLUS, they wanted us to get organized! 2 things I love combining - crafting and organizing!
Now, I have a problem. It's called a beauty addiction. I full admit it's slightly out of control. I have a ridiculous amount of make up brushes, eyeliners, lip liners, really anything beauty-centric. I managed to hit VIB Rouge at Sephora this past year AND premier status at Ulta. I know. It's crazy.
For this project, I thought it would be the perfect time to create this adorable make up brush organizer I've been dying to make. I keep seeing these itty bitty stumps at Michaels and was just waiting and waiting and waiting for the right time to make something out of them.
All you need is a block of wood, a tree stump, a fat branch, whatever.... and a drill. The specific wood I used I purchased at Michaels, but unfortunately could not find it on the website to link to. I decided to get a little more technical and use a circle stencil to drill exact circle sizes for my brushes. Easiest way to go, though, is just using a generic size that will fit most brushes and pencils.
See! A ridiculous amount of brushes!!!
Part 2 of this challenge was organizing our craft space to start this new year off right. I am so incredibly embarrassed to be showing this... but hey, there's something to be said for vulnerability and courage, right?? I feel like Monica from friends and her dirty little secret closet. BUT NOT ANYMORE! Check out the before and after... thanks to Michaels and their incredibly sturdy storage boxes.
