Saying no to stuff

I am that girl. You know, the one who keeps everything. I find sentimental value in basically anything, so I have a really, really hard time getting rid of stuff. I have found sentimental value in graphic tees from American Eagle. That is probably the definition…

I could play with this for hours …

I am totally in love with the ICI Paints Color Visualization Tool. Thanks for the great suggestion, Newlyb! Here are some possible combinations I came up with … Option A: According to ICI Paint, it’s the “colour of the year.” Would be great for…

Operation: New bedroom

I came, I saw, I cleaned … Yes, I had quite the organization marathon over the weekend. Over at like a hamster on a wheel, Newlyb was apparently going through the same thing. I’m not sure what came over me, because I have never been…

Downsizing: Closet Edition

I’m going to be a bad blogger today, and only shoot you a couple of sentences.  You see, I am in a cleaning frenzy — nesting a year early? — and spent last night cleaning out my closet and doing the keep/toss tango. I…

10 things I love about you

An ode to my dream craft room (which I will have someday) … 1. It is painted a bright, cheery pink … possibly with an orange or yellow accent wall … 2. It has a worktable built into the wall, that stretches around the entire perimeter…

Home on the range

Well, I’m back, dear readers. No, I did not jump out of my office window yesterday — although yeah, I was damn close. I was completely weary by the time I made it home with Darling Husband yesterday evening. While we made spinach salad…

Space-saving nursery tricks

Hooray! I have finally made some progress in my ongoing quest to figure out how to fit baby-gear into our small place. Caught an episode of The Mom Show the other day — love that show, and have for the last couple of years —…

Room to move

What sane woman doesn’t like to think about decorating a nursery? Really? It’s one of the most flippin’ fun things out there. One of the main reasons I plan on finding out the boy/girl situation is so I know how to decorate! Will the…
