I was so glad to have my kitchen and pantry organized last week! This week we’re tackling closets. We left that kind of open so that you have the freedom to choose which closet or closets you want to organize. Before we get to my hall closet organization, I’m excited to share our first features!
It never fails for more than a couple months to go by before I get the itch to paint another piece of furniture! My latest furniture flip is this painted desk. We’re known to have hand me down furniture, and I’m known to paint it. This desk was no exception!
We’re officially kicking of the Clear the Clutter Challenge and I could not be more excited! Our very first space is pantry and kitchen organization. Personally my kitchen desperately needed some clearing out. Tackling this space first was a huge relief for me.
We’re almost a week into the new year and I finally have had some time to sit and think about some of my new year resolutions and goals! Writing things down definitely helps to keep me accountable. Plus I figured sharing them with you all would help with accountability as well! Also don’t miss the amazing giveaway at the bottom of this post!
It’s a new year which means New Year resolutions and goals are being made! While I’m still trying to figure out all the goals I have for 2018 there’s one area I have several, home project goals. A whole list in fact! I recently read that if you write your goals down for the new year you’re 40% more likely to achieve them. And why not make it cute to display on the fridge so I’ll see them often? I thought you might have some home project goals of your own so check the bottom of this post on how to get your own free printable!
Right about now you’ve either gotten all your holiday decorations up or are about to. Maybe it’s just me but this time of year I become hyper aware of how unorganized my home is. Probably because we’ve brought more things into our home from Christmas presents and now we have to find somewhere to put them. But our closets seemed to be filled to the brim. It’s easy to close the door and say we’ll do it later.
After writing about what I would do differently in my baby’s first year it was easy to feel a little down about myself as a mom. So to change my outlook I want to write a counter post about what I felt I did right in my baby’s first year. After all we’re all just doing the best we can to be the best mama we can be to our babies. So just as inevitably that we’ll get some things wrong along the way we’ll also get some things right! Here’s what I feel I got right with my little one.
It’s weird to type out that I’ve been a mom for a year now. It was probably the fastest, yet best year of my life! You know how they say hindsight is 20/20? There are several moments in my life where I’ve known that to be true. Motherhood is definitely one of those! If I could go back in time there are a few things I think I would do differently during my baby’s first year.
The season of giving is upon us friends! It’s time for the bottom of our trees to slowly fill with gifts for those we love. And to see their faces light up on Christmas when they open them! How great would it be to keep that look of joy on their face going beyond the holidays? Too often our gifts end up in the back of a closet, drawer or cabinet just a few months after Christmas. Instead I propose giving a gift that’ll last the whole year (or possibly longer!). In fact I’ve got 5 gift ideas that keep on giving after the holidays and they work for just about all ages!
Well it certainly took me a lot longer to finish putting up my decorations for Christmas than I thought it would! We put our tree up on November 1st and I didn’t finish decorating it until like December 5th. I tell you toddlers make every job just a tad harder! Now that it’s finally up and as done as it’s going to get I figured I’d share! So here is my simple Christmas decor tour!
