Toy Organization

Toy Organization

One thing I can’t stand is parts from toys and games tossed (and lost) throughout the house.  A while back I started organizing toys into containers.  They are stored high enough that the girls must ask to get them down.  They play with cooking stuff or playdoh...
Bookselves {Ikea find}

Bookselves {Ikea find}

I found these shelves at Ikea in the framing section.  They are shelves to hold picture frames but work even better as bookshelves! See more ideas from this girl’s room: Stenciled Curtains Wall Art Magnetic Wall I linked up here:  http://www.tipjunkie.com  | ...
Painted Curtains

Painted Curtains

Ahh, they are finally done!  This was a much bigger project than I anticipated, but I’m thrilled with the end result. I used Martha Stewart’s stencil and painted on white curtain panels from Ikea. It took forever to paint these 118″ curtains with...
Wall Art {Kids Room}

Wall Art {Kids Room}

I added this frame above my daughter’s magnetic “teacher” wall (more about that project here).  I took an empty frame, added vinyl words, and attached some ribbon. I thought the words were fitting for the imaginative play that goes on here. I linked...
DIY Office Wall Art

DIY Office Wall Art

Found it.  Pinned it.  Made it.  {Pinterest inspired artwork} As a web designer, this just cracks me up… I love this quote.  I used a 24×36 in canvas, Martha Stewart stencil, some yellow paint and printed the quote at Staples.   I painted the yellow area...
Baby Girl Nursery and DIY Cornice Board

Baby Girl Nursery and DIY Cornice Board

This cornice board was a really easy project.  I didn’t want something that was too heavy to hang, so I used a sheet of styrofoam from Hobby Lobby. Cut the front to the correct size, a little wider than the window.  Next, cut 2 side pieces to the depth that you...
Going Away Cookies

Going Away Cookies

Our nanny for the past year worked her last day with us this week.  While we were excited for her to move on to school, we were sad to see her go.  For her last day, we made these sad face cookies.
Organizing All Your Passwords

Organizing All Your Passwords

Between business websites, internet shopping, and personal sites, I have a ton of passwords.  Every site has different requirements so using the same password hasn’t worked.  In order to keep track of all of my password, I purchased two of these Internet...
Bow Holder

Bow Holder

With two little girls and tons of bows, we needed a way to keep up with all the bows!  I used an old frame and glued ribbon from top to bottom.  Added a bunch of bows and we have a decorative bow holder!
Magnetic Wall {Kid’s Room}

Magnetic Wall {Kid’s Room}

My 3-year-old loves to play school.  It looks like she is following in the footsteps of her daddy, grandma, aunt and uncle who are all teachers.  I created this magnetic wall in her room to give her lots of space to pretend! I started by painting an area of the wall...
Pottery Barn Lunch Kit Makeover

Pottery Barn Lunch Kit Makeover

For my three year old, Lunchables are convenient and just the right amount of food to send to preschool… but they are expensive.  This year, I found the Spencer Bento Box at Pottery Barn Kids.  Now we make our own Lunchables – without wasting lots of...
Weekly Menu Planning

Weekly Menu Planning

Back to school means back to a routine… and eating at home. I dread grocery shopping each week.  Pulling out the cookbooks, planning the meals, making the list… it was such a chore.  So, I created this weekly menu board system with a magnetic board from...
Measuring Cup Storage {Organizing the Kitchen}

Measuring Cup Storage {Organizing the Kitchen}

I hated how my measuring cups never fit in my kitchen drawers.  They were always getting stuck.  When I saw this great organization tip here, Organizing Measuring Cups and Spoons, I had to try it myself.  I didn’t have room to hang them inside my cabinet doors,...
Displaying Kids’ Artwork

Displaying Kids’ Artwork

With school starting up this week, I decided we needed a way to display all of the paintings and projects that our 3 year old brings home from preschool. I took a strip of wood and painted it black.  Added a few metal clips and attached it to the wall: Now,...
