Chocolatiers Blog Hop + Giveaway


Welcome to our farewell blog hop.


It's sad to go.. I've probably said it a MILLION times.... but it was SO fun while I was a chocolatier.. Sharing ideas and tutorials.. gathering inspiration from the other DT members and from Chocolate lovers. It was a great experience all and all.

and I'm always open to sharing ideas.. today I've got my favorite organizing tip ever... seriously. and really I have to say I owe it all to my fabulous Hubby!!

First order of business though... this is a HOP.. so if you've come from Corrie's blog you're in the right spot :) but if not.. start over @ Amber's Blog



Second order of business --- My organization tip:

 Use those spice racks that slide in and out to store your mists, powders and paints!!!!!


This is what it looks like in my box of shame.. I say box of shame because I HATE keeping everything in a giant cupboard.. but right now it's all I have.. and I get to find great organizing  solutions like this!


Pull out the drawer...


And spin it!!


and apparently spice racks are popular in my closet! lol

Third.. Here's some BLOG CANDY I'm giving away.. a WHOLE June's Handmade Embellishment Kit.. "Summer Lovin'" -- please be a follower and leave a comment to be eligible for the candy. If you so choose, share the candy on your own blog and let me know here.. you'll get a 2nd entry. :) Share on Facebook, Twitter and anywhere else you can.. leave a comment for each separate share and each will be an additional entry! Let's work up some final love for the end of the first official CropChocolate Design Team! 


And final order... Head on over to Jenn's Blog to continue your hop =)
