Make-up Organizer

I know I said I would post this on the 26th of January, but we have AGAIN been dealing with sickness. Aurrgh! I am soooo ready for spring!!
I haven't had a lot of time to do a ton of stuff... yet. That is all coming.... soon!! I promise!! For right now, I am just uber happy to get this up here!! Quick! Before the kids see I am on the computer...!!!

Make-up organizers can be pricey. Too pricey if you ask me. Maybe I am just too cheap, maybe frugal is a better description.
Here is what I did:

I went out to WalMart and bought a $10 fishing tackle box. I also went over to the craft section and got some bead organizers for my earrings. It is a beautiful thing when you can actually find your accessories!! ;0)

The earrings fit nicely in the bottom drawer, along with some of the larger eye shadow compacts that I have. The rest I just divided up and...voila!! I can actually find stuff!! Yippee!! Here she is... by the way I named her Martha...:


I don't have a ton of make-up right now. At least not as much as some other people I know. One girl I know has one of those huge Craftsman tool boxes and it is totally filled. Of course, she is a make-up artist... but I still drool thinking about it. I had better watch out... Betty, my new computer, doesn't appreciate my drooling on her. I had better go before the kids realize that Mommy is distracted and I find my new china hutch (new to me off of CraigsList) "tampered" with... while no one was around it. I tell you... we definitely have a ghost around here!! Have a great weekend and I promise not to be such a huge flake this week!!

Here's a quick pic my awesome husband took on my old camera this morning!

OK OK, this is really Kelly's husband. As part of setting up Kelly's new MacBook Pro, I'm setting her up with a much easier blogging workflow and this post is simply a test of that new workflow. I couldn't help but throw in that shameless plug...
