"Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up."

I am very excited to report that I have been spending the last 3 months on a new job adventure. It stems from the pledge I made to myself, when I found out I was pregnant with little girl #2, to be more "girlie." Its like nothing I thought I would ever be doing and I LOVE every minute of it. As soon as I get some free time I want to tell y'all all about it and start sharing TONS of tips that I have been learning!! My new job required me to set up a home office, which is SUPER ORGANIZED (I promise, the post is coming's THE most organized I have ever been in my entire life) In the process of all that organizing I had to sacrifice our entire, craft and extra toy storage.

Here is a lil hint of why losing that space is SO worth it...

Tonight, I was digging through my VERY unorganized alternative, so that Bug could do some painting, and thought to myself. I have GOT to get this organized. Lo and behold, this evening I came across this FABULOUS and helpful post from House of Grace!
It's perfect!!! Just like her family, we do all of our crafting and painting and coloring in the kitchen. Its the PERFECT spot. I will have to figure out where to put all the kitchen items, I currently have in my cabinets, BUT I am SO up for the challenge. Go spend some time at the House of Grace blog. She has TONS of fabulous organizing and decorating ideas and healthy cleaning tips too.

I have been thinking about building my own shoe shelves in my closet...cause asking the hubby to do it is WAY too easy. I was VERY thankful to find The Hand Me Down House's post on how to build basic shelves. Ill be trying this in the next week or so. Wish me luck. ;)

  1. I've been on bit of an organizing kick lately. It's hard when you want to tackle so many things and projects at once. Good luck with everything!
