"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he has been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just like people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, and most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is just like an old time rail journey ... delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders, and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride."

.Crafty Christy.

Finally- I get to put my Crafty nature to use!

Look at these Cute & Simple Closet Dividers I made:

They were Easy!
First, I found 6 of the letter "O" wooden letters
and painted one side pink

Then, I used my choice of scrap booking paper to decoupage the other side

Mod Podge is my choice of adhesive
Mod Podge dries clear... so to seal it, I put a coat on top of the paper as well
Lastly, I had my sweet neighbor Sommer (who happens to have a vinyl cutting business) make my numbers and letters with silver vinyl.
check her out on Facebook:
All Mine Vinyl Designs
Total Cost:
around 20 bucks.
I can't take all the credit... I got the idea from this chick's blog:

AND- Allison (my Sister from another Mista') "helped" me. Well, she attempted to help- but since she can't trace, cut in a straight line, or glue paper properly; I fired her. :) Love you anyways, Ally!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! You are so creative... I got you (well, actually the baby) something today. I can't wait for it to come in. :) You will appreciate it more than she will, but that's okay.

How do they hook on the closet rod? Are they cut somewhere on them so you can slip them on? Confused . . .

Hey Amanda! The rod in my closet, rests on boards that allows the rod to sink down into the hole... so, it removes easily. If you have a screwed-in-the-wall closet rod, these wooden circles would not work.
