iDIY: address file + giveaway

Staying organized isn't something that comes naturally to me. I have a pile of business cards, pieces of paper, addresses written in each of my 7 or 8 notebooks without any particular order and it is definitely time to sort all these out. The inspiration came from this post at heart handmade showing how to organize your contacts and get rid of your junk mail at the same time. Neat.

I used a cute box (in which was one of my birthday presents from my bf). The dividers are cut from an old paper bag (I still need to iron them). I wanted to stamp them, but I didn't have a stamp so instead I just wrote the letters, ha! Being the notebook addict that I am I had a lot of blank pages from different notebooks lying around so I just cut them and used them to write the addresses.

If you don't feel like making one yourself you can sign up for the giveaway lovelydesign are having. They are giving out two stunning address files with lots of beautiful paper placed in wooden boxes. Oh, I want one for myself :)

Hi Iva!

Although it makes me nutty not to be organized, staying organized doesn't come naturally to me either!

Your organization box is great, you did a fabulous job!!
