DIY Halloween Bucket #2 ~

DIY | Halloween Inspiration

So I decided to make one more Halloween bucket using a peat pot. 
So, we start with our fabulously ordinary peat pot.

And just get crazy with it - 
yes, this feels crazy for me these days.
For the embellishment, I used a coffee filter for the back and made a quick image in Photoshop using a simple bat image from the fabulous Graphics Fairy.

And there you have it. 
Another simple easy, 
simple festive

House Tour ~

House Tour | Inspiration

I seem to shy away from color...often. 
In my home. 
In my wardrobe.

I think that is one of the reasons why I am drawn to this house.
I just love how color was used in this space.

I had to pin this kitchen, I am diggin' it. 

Lovely bathroom - yep, pinned this too!

Some of the color is a bit daring for me  
(remember me..scared of color).

Dollar Drink Bucket Organization ~

Organization | Inspiration

So I am sure you have seen these delightful drink buckets at Target. 
Delightful at $1 each.

I am sure there are a 1,001 ways to use these bad boys, but here is how I put them to work. 
It all starts with a Brother P-touch label maker - this takes a close second to my iphone!

I know he is old and there are better, shinier ones I could buy - but he works just great.

Here our "Dad Bars" (aka. icky ones), "Mom Bars"(aka Larabars) and "Kids School Snacks" (aka non-refrigerated items that fit nicely in a snack container).

Every bucket is easy for putting things away, and hey quickly finding things in the morning. Plus it keeps the hubby out of my bars and the kiddos snacks!

And since these delightful buckets come in a range of colors - depending on the season - here are a few more for the kiddos snacks at home.

So next time you stroll by these lovely $1 buckets, pick a few up. 
And I bet you $$$ you can find all sorts of things to organize!

Well let me show you the ways.

Addicted to Pinterest ~

So it is official. 
I am addicted. 
Yes, I find myself lost in time and space.

When I am pinning!

Now I am sure you all of heard of Pinterest (if you are not completely addicted yet). And if you haven't, might want to think twice before you enter. 

Yes, it is great. 
Yes, you will love it.
And sadly yes, you will spend hours...

If you want to check out my pins and/or follow along with me, here are my boards:

I would love to check out your boards as well - because I know you all have fabulous taste!

How to Organize for School ~

Organization | Inspiration

So 2 days into kindergarten and I can foresee our eminent need for a "family command center".  I am now clearly seeing the importance of having a centralized area for all the kiddos (and the paperwork). 

Here are a few ideas to get me inspired (or is it motivated?).

I know some of you have this area mastered. 
How do you organize your kids school "stuff"?
I would love to hear your ideas. 

Here is our hallway I would like to add our "command center".
