simple valentine’s day decor & true love

I’ve never really decorated specifically for Valentine’s Day, with the exception of when I had littles about. It was more about construction paper hearts and special pencils for school work back then. My Christmas and winter decor kinda meshed at that time. Lots of snowmen and sleds mingled with the more Christmas-y items. The diminutive…… Continue reading simple valentine’s day decor & true love

chaos control: setting up my bullet journal for 2019

Let me start with an apology. Sorry for the sad photos…we haven’t had much sun the last few days. I struggle at the best of times to get decent pictures, but it’s been extra challenging this winter. Usually I start my planning in September, as it corresponds to the school year. My current bullet journal,…… Continue reading chaos control: setting up my bullet journal for 2019

decking the halls: a christmas home tour

I’m always a little slow in sharing seasonal posts.  Perhaps it’s due to my process.  I tend to break out the seasonal decor totes, slowly put out new season items while removing the old, change up placed items repeatedly until I’m somewhat satisfied, make new decorations, forget to gather fresh greenery…you get the picture.  We’re…… Continue reading decking the halls: a christmas home tour

point for me…finally painted that wardrobe

Do you have a project that has loomed over you for ages? I have had one. That’s right…I finally got around to painting my df girl’s wardrobe! I shouldn’t tell you we’ve had this hand-me-down dresser since 2013, but it’s the sad truth.  It is sturdy and practical; heavy as all get out and was dark…… Continue reading point for me…finally painted that wardrobe

chaos control ~ jewelry organizer

I profess, I am not one to jump on the January bandwagon of goals and resolutions.  Not that I’m against getting organized–far from it.  I truly want to have an organized and efficient home.  I do like checklists and setting goals, though I’ve learned to do so in pencil, because I have trouble with the…… Continue reading chaos control ~ jewelry organizer
