Hi there and welcome back to the CSI Project!
Wow, this was a hard challenge to judge. So many great ideas!
I think this means the challenges need to get harder because you ladies are super talented.
You also very much impressed our guest judge, Rachel from Family Ever After.
Here is what she said about her judging experience,
“Hello all you amazing organizers! I’ve had so much fun looking through all the entries (and watching the movie “Monte Carlo” while I was at it, lol). You’ve all got such pretty blogs- I even followed each one of you while I was paying you a visit! A few months ago, I was the lucky winner of the CSI challenge for the color orange. I entered my Orange Playroom Reveal. Winning the challenge was the coolest blogging moment I had had at that point. I was so excited to win, and it gave me such a boost of confidence with my blog! There were so many wonderful ideas- I noticed several common themes- closets, laundry, and meal organization. It was hard to narrow it down, but here we go!”
Rachel’s remarks are in italics.
# 25 Organizing Toys with Instagram from My Sister’s Suitcase
This idea is brilliant! It’s an instagram picture, with a title written on it, and adhered to a drawer of toys. What I love about it is that kids can easily help clean up, even if they’re too small to read, because they see the pictures of what belongs in each drawer. (And what’s super funny is that this has been on my to-do list for months! I loved seeing it done in real life)!
#5 DIY bathroom organization from Eat.Sleep.Decorate
I love the originality of each hook. I am a firm believer in handing a towel on a hook (as opposed to folding and draping it over a rod). It’s so much easier!
#7 An Organized Garage from Gone Walkabout 2
A lot of work was put into getting this garage all organized. Kudos for a job well done!
#28 laundry Basket/Dresser from Kaleidoscope of Colors
And it is a tie. Very similar project and both GREAT!!!
#11 from Tales of a Trophy Wife
I got a kick out of these two entries. They both built the same set of laundry drawers to organize all their dirty laundry. When I clicked on the first one, the picture of the pile of laundry took my breath away! Good thing she has a better organizing system now! (My laundry pile has never gotten that high….. really, I promise, ok no, I’m lying)! haha
#19 Printable Meal Planner from Seven Thirty Three
I printed this out months ago, and it is brilliant! Kim from 733 is so talented with printables. I love how this meal planner makes sense, and it doesn’t hurt that its the same colors as my kitchen!
#22 Mealtime Notebook from A Reformed Heath’n
This is totally my style of organizing. I love how practical this is!
#40 Recipe Magnets from The Letter 4
#42 closet to sewing nook from Creatively Living….Outside the Box
I love this sewing nook. Very very fun!
#62 Organized Bookshelf from Coley’s Corner
I have a shelf in need of this exact makeover. Great job, and I love the colors!
#66 Organized Craft Closet from Lizzy, My Mind, My Life
I’m digging this space, especially how the contact paper and vinyl are organized!
#67 Organized Fabric from Freetime Frolics
2 hours were spent folding all this gorgeous fabric. Totally worth it, it looks fantastic!
#64 Fabric Storage from PolkaDot Pretties
This is so clever and I love how she painted this thrift store beauty and created a very unique piece that would look great in my craft room. Jealous, maybe? But a BIG “you are awesome” is in order for this lovely link.
