"This springtime floral pathway is a great example of color that sings. To me as a knitter/crocheter it inspires fiber art jewelry, shawls and wraps!" comment via #KnittingGuru
{aka attacking the weeds in my garden}
Oh yes, the garden looks oh so much more magical when it is weed-free :)! Time to start thinking about this . . . 3 Killer Ways to Get Rid of Weeds Naturally #DIY #GARDENING

Ok, ok - now onto the real reason for this post :)
Today I am linking up with my bud, Holly, to share a fun and easy way to store, organize, and manage puzzles!

Last year, my students LOVED to do puzzles - but left my collection in shambles. So, at the end of the year, I had some workers (aka staff kids hanging around) put together all of the puzzles and throw out the ones that were missing pieces. (There's nothing worse than working diligently to complete a puzzle and then have three holes in the your masterpiece).
We threw out 75% of my puzzles.
So, I decided to re-stock this summer. 
I bought these puzzles from the Dollar Tree
and the Target $ Spot
Each puzzle comes in a little cardboard box: 
I cut off the top of the box:
I put each puzzle into a zip log and
stapled the cover onto the bag: 
 
On the back, I put this label:
You can download the labels for FREE here:
I printed them on Shipping Labels (Avery 5164)
For the Word document, you'll need to download
the font KG Be Still and Know
I'm hoping that this will serve as a
reminder to take care of the puzzles.
