Please Excuse our Mess….

Sorry for the lack of posts recently, but our household has had a whirlwind month and a half of house showing/selling/buying and we are currently in the middle of the somewhat unpleasant process of moving the contents of our home into storage prior to a complete move next month.

It’s a little bit difficult to work on extra creative projects during this time, so unfortunately these are on hold for a bit. But I’m looking forward to being settled soon and having a whole new environment to organize and craft in.

Please check back in the coming weeks to see updates!

Organizing for Kids Part 1

Organizing for Kids

With cooler days there are lots more craft projects, coloring books and little games around our house. My son loves to cut, paste and tape things together. We have many, many supplies to keep him going. He also seems to have dozens of little games with small pieces and parts that can get everywhere. It’s a wonder I can keep any of it put away, but I do try to keep things organized. We try to have a place for everything. Eventually, things do get put back into their place.
