DIY: how to be a grown up.

When you reach a certain age in life you become what is known as a "grown-up". Being a "grown-up" entails various things. Since I have not yet crossed over into "being a grown-up" I have no idea what these "things" actually are and am therefore unable to elaborate. You will have heard many grown-ups throw around terms like investment policies, life insurance, retirement funds and mortgages and bonds and generally when these things come up, I nod my head and "agree".

What I do know about being a grown up is that it involves a rather large amount of post. Warren, being the grown-up that he is, receives these posted things on a daily basis and he has developed a highly advanced filing system for these things - next to the bed:
Photobucket
Photobucket
It's a very effective system. In fact, it is also the same filing system used by my own father. As you can imagine, my mother fully approves of this advanced filing system. I decided to contribute to Warren being a grown up by making him a fancy file to store his grown up post, in a very organised and adult-like way. You can make one yourself and it's so easy, you don't even need a grown up to help you - Photobucket
What you need:
  • a big black file
  • tape
  • washi tape (obviously)
  • bits and pieces (random tickets, printed pictures, movie stubs and other papery reminders of fun times)
  • scissors
  • file dividers
  • plastic sleeves
Photobucket
Washi tape is essential for any crafting project.

Use file dividers. They will make you feel very organised and grown up.Photobucket

I'm on the brink of becoming grown up - it's a matter of months (very scary ones!) I think i'm going to have to ask for washi tape for Christmas!
