Pressies for Me :)

The challenge at Pollycraft this week is "It's Chill Time".  I've interpreted this as relaxing time...not chilly weather...although the way our weather is going today, I could probably have done a winter card!!  It's been blowing a gale, with a thunder & lightning show, and bucketing down.  We're supposed to be nearly at summer here!

Anyhow, on to my project.....While my lovely friend Helen was here for a visit in August, she made me a set of cute Kaiser drawers for all my little embellie bits & pieces.  Thank you so much Helen...*waving*   I've been going to blog it ever since and not got around to it.  Recently Kaiser released an organiser kit so I thought I'd make one to go with my cute drawers...and I really needed to get my tools out of the boring ice-cream container and into something a bit more practical...and attractive lol!!  Because they both sit on my table and not against a wall, I thought I'd decorate the backs of both units.  I used two of the gorgeous Lillybean Fairies from Pollycraft, cut them out and mounted them on the DP...along with a few more elements from the same paper collection.

This is the 2 units:

The photo on the left, of the drawers, was taken in daylight so the colours are more accurate...I really must get over finishing my projects at silly hours of the night and having to photo in lousy light!!!! As you can see I'm putting the organiser to good use already :)

The back of the Drawers:
  And...the back of the Organiser:

I LOVE both of these units :)  They look very cute on my table and are sooo handy...and MUCH nicer than an ice-cream container!!!!  I made a couple of modifications to the organiser, with the help of my wonderful hubby.  Note to self:  DO NOT try putting one of these things together on your own again...unless you grow another pair of hands!!!!!

This is a first for me, I think...I don't make things for myself...most things are made as pressies for my near-and-dear...might have to do this more often :)

Thanks for looking.........have a wonderful day :)

Wow, wow, wow!!! Your organiser is brilliant Lynne - very clever making modifications to suit your equipment! I love the panels you have added to both units & your Lillybean fairies are exquisite! Their paper pieced spotty bodices are just perfect.
Lucky me, I will get to gaze admiringly at these gorgeous little fairies from the other side of your work table next time I get to visit! woohoo!

Hi Lynn! These are the cutest organizers that I've ever seen! I would love to be surrounded by such adorable useful things. I'm in the container stage of crafting right now. Beautiful job!
