Paper Punch Storage Tip {And What We Did This Weekend}

Here's a quick little tip for storing all those paper punches. 

I don't know about you, but I'm a bit of a paper addict! Yes, yes it does sound a little weird, but I just LOVE paper! When you've got a lot of paper, a collection of paper punches will soon follow. My collection was getting a bit out of control and was just piled in a drawer, but then I remembered a tip I had seen (and actually used in an old house) years ago.

Use one of those small curtain rods to "hang" your paper punches. You may have some of these just laying around, and even if you don't, they're really not that expensive. I happened to have one just waiting to be used, so I dug it out, hung it on the wall, and voila! I've got a nice place to store my paper punches. Check it out:

And, now, if you're interested, here's a little of what we did this weekend. My husband took the day off on Friday to enjoy the wonderful weather we'd been having, so we went on a little hike.

About a month or so ago we sat down and made a list of places we wanted to check out near where we live. We got to check one of those places off our list!

Then on Saturday, we did a little yard work...ok A LOT of yard work. We were tired at the end of the day!

I guess we figured we hadn't worn ourselves out enough, so after church and going to breakfast on Sunday, we started doing a little more work on the yard. Luckily for our sore muscles, the wind kicked up,  so we retreated inside. 

We didn't want to waste the day, though, so we got our seeds started for our garden. I'm so excited for the garden this year! We started out small in 2010, expanded it in 2011, but this year we're putting more thought not only into growing the garden but in the design of it. It's going to be so beautiful! I can't wait to get it going, so I can share it with you.

What did you do this weekend? Do yo have Spring fever yet? I'm so ready to get things growing here!

I'm having a blast at these lovely linking parties.
