Tuesday was my sons first day of school (sniffle, sniffle). There he was with a backpack practically bigger than him. I actually held it together for the first drop off. It helped he was so excited, albeit a little shy. Honestly, I think I was actually excited the day was finally here, too. I felt [...]
To go along with my recent kitchen drawer reorganization, I started looking for other kitchen inefficiencies. My oldest can get his own water at the fridge and set the table, yet he couldn’t reach any of the kids cups or plates. Meanwhile, in the corner of the [...]
Do you ever get to the point where you are so sick of something you can’t think of anything else until you fix it? I got to that point recently with our kitchen utensil drawer after bringing home a set of new turquoise cooking utensils. I made it a top priority to fix the sloppy [...]
We are 100% focused on back to school readiness. Or should I say starting school readiness? My oldest will be starting full day kindergarten on September 4th. I am so excited for him and so nervous, too. I know he will do great. It is me that is nervous about the unknown, about being unprepared, [...]
Just because we go to the gym in our own home now doesn’t mean we want to give up all the fitness club niceties. A fresh workout towel to wipe the sweat from your brow is a nice, not-to-be-overlooked perk of a fitness club. I aim to provide that same convenience in our [...]
We just got a new and bigger TV for the bedroom. I am going on record to say I love it! I know, i know…they say it can kill the romance, you shouldn’t watch TV right before bed, blah, blah, blah. Well, I have always enjoyed winding down with a TV show before bed.
I believe in the power of DIY to transform a house into a home. A huge component of my eDecor services is DIY project recommendations to finish off a space. I suggest DIY projects that save money, help personalize a space, and are truly unique touches. For Kari’s basement eDecor plan [...]
The organizing bug got to me again the other day. I was frustrated at the tangled mess of my hair dryer and straight iron cords tossed in a drawer with my brushes. It seemed silly since there was plenty of unused storage space in the cabinet under the sink. I just needed to figure out [...]
Our finished basement is slowly becoming a reality. I have been holding back strong urges to make a zillion mood boards for every room since we broke ground several months ago. Well, the wait is finally over. Now that we are in the finishing stages, I am allowing myself to start creating mood boards for [...]
I have a jar of happiness to share with you today. With my crazy busy life, I still try to delight in the simple things. This past weekend I found happiness in a jar, some wooden spools, and pretty twine.
I ordered this sample pack of baker’s twine from The Twinery. There [...]
My bathroom junk drawer was out of control. The biggest problem was the drawer was not full of junk, rather it was full of the things I use everyday to get ready. It was supposed to be my beauty drawer. Instead, I was wasting minutes a day rooting through this drawer to find what I [...]
With loads of cute washi tapes and paper tapes, it is easy to amass a collection quickly. I found a bunch of cute, inexpensive paper tapes at Target to kickstart my collection. I even found some tape for the kids from the Kid Made Modern Collection. These tapes are a lot more paper-like and don’t [...]
I feel like before I can get to all the fun, pretty stuff on the bathroom mood board, I need to take care of some more bathroom organization.
I always keep an eye out for cute containers and storage supplies. I instantly was drawn to these plastic berry containers [...]
Some things are just too pretty to put away! That is how I felt about the candlestick candy jars I made for Jax’s Bug Party. After enjoying a few weeks to finish all the jelly beans, I started searching for a new home [...]
I actually installed this cork board over a year ago, around the same time I made the stair tread shelves. I never shared the details of the cork board, because I considered it a project fail. We have been using it to display the kids artwork. It was certainly [...]
