I decided to make a framed DIY embroidery floss organizer so I would have somewhere to…

zipper pouch for washi tape

Once I got started sewing things for my planner, I knew a must have would be a pouch for my washi tape.

Organizing papers

I have revealed in previous posts that my kitchen counters are usually in a major state of disarray.  From papers, to craft supplies, to kid stuff- everything gets dumped in the corner and left there.  Now that our basement is finished- we are land locked.  Everything we are keeping needs a place to live- no more squatting on my kitchen counters. 🙂 One problem is kids’ homework.  I’m sad to say we’ve lost more than one assignment in the abyss…

Creating a schedule- phase 1

My house is a wreck.  Not that you would think so from first glance.  I try to keep up with the obvious surfaces.  But in a house with 5 children- often just picking up takes all day.  You put one away, they take three out- and repeat.It can feel overwhelming to think about all that needs to happen to keep a home clean.  Then, a few years ago, I had a revelation.  I was watching a show on public television-…

Fabric Cabinet Makeover
