Clean Office and Moving

So the end result of a verrrrrrrry long and story is that we are still moving out of state. I've got my house all cleaned up for house showings (see the pretty office below), which unfortunately has put a big crimp in my ability to create gorgeous projects with vinyl.

(First I have a bathroom remodel, then I spend my summer away from home, and now I have to keep my house spotless--not an easy task with my kids). I'm running a bit short on pictures with all of this, but I do have a cute nightlight I created using our PRINCESS word art that I'll try and post soon.

Hopefully it won't be too much longer before we relocate, and my sweet husband has agreed I need a space I can call my own for crafts AND computer stuff. (I knew there was a reason I married him). We're looking as some places that have the potential for that, yet are modest in size and price (read full unfinished basement instead of partial with a crawl).

We also agree I need a laundry room instead of a laundry closet. (Our boys generate a massive amount of laundry).

No More Confusion

I have children who always fight over their belongings. I grew sick of the fighting over the hampers, so I bought enough for each child to have one, and I labeled them.

It great cuts down on the confusion--except when they fight over who put the extra pair of underwear in their hamper!

Time to get organized

One of the things we did this summer was spend three weeks in Utah. My kids got to visit with all of their cousins there (on both sides of our family), and I got to spend some great time with my sisters! My youngest sister and I helped our mom out (who was pretty ill) by helping her declutter and simplify her life. Her pantry was a thing of beauty when we finished!

Here are a few photos of pantry containers Jodee (Walls of Wisdom co-owner) did.
