This Wooden Bungee Organizer from Brit+Co is a fantastic idea. It’s cheap, simple to build for a DIY, and provides for something different from just having adhesive hooks from the nearest dollar store. In fact, it’s probably better too: some items are better hung like the scarves.
The instructions and pictures are very easy to follow and require only a drill, a lighter, a stapler/ staple gun, and a hammer. Otherwise, the materials are just a few wooden boards, wood stain, and bungee cords.
We should make Easter a forty-day celebration. If Lent is that long, Easter should be at least that long, all the way to Ascension. We should meet regularly for Easter parties. We should drink champagne at breakfast. We should renew baptismal vows with splashing water all over the place. And we should sing and dance and blow trumpets and put out banners in the streets. And we should invite the homeless people to parties and we should go around town doing random acts of generosity and celebration. We should be doing things which would make our sober and serious neighbors say, ‘What is the meaning of this outrageous party?’

Every person on earth is sick with the fever of sin…it is necessary to treat everyone who suffers from the malady of sin with kindness and love…We often, very often, act in opposition to this truth. We add malice to malice…We oppose pride by pride. Thus, evil…is not cured, but rather spreads…there is enough malice and anger in the world without yours.
—St. John of Kronstadt (via gospelofthekingdom)
