It's no secret in my house, that I have a real problem with paperwork. I don't like to see it, but I don't know how to organize it either. We don't have room for a dedicated office space, and I don't like to see "things" that aren't pretty(such as school papers, bills, flyers, etc) out in the open in the kitchen. I have tried bins, baskets, buckets and what not, but they tend to just get filled up with no rhyme or reason. So, it led me to this morning, trying to figure out how to organize papers that come in the house, I'm hoping that I finally came up with a solution. I made a hanging fabric organizer for the back of the pantry door. Didn't cost me a dime, just some time. Ok, yes the fabric was bought, but it was leftover from another project, and I didn't run to the store for any of this, so in my mind, it was a "free" project :)It was a very quick sew, and not quite perfect(a little man kept asking for my attention), but it is sturdy and I hope it lasts. I stenciled the kids names on each pocket with acrylic paint.
I will make another one two hang on the other door, with the youngest two kid's names plus pockets for "bills", "medical", and "other". And while these match the kitchen, I can shut them away inside the cupboard.
OK, I can not take the blame for these cookies and what they will do to your hips and thighs, it's all Gina's(from Cat Nap Inn Primitives) fault!! She sent me the recipe :)
YES, that is an OREO stuffed inside a chocolate chip cookie!!! And surprisingly, they weren't crunchy(or soggy) after baking, they were just about the same texture of the chocolate chip cookie part. And talk about tasty!! YUM!! We ate ours with a helping of ice cream on top. These guys are big, you could cut them in fours and still have a big cookie to eat.
Here is the recipe, just in case you want to give the a try ;)
