You guys!!!! It is my last post of 2013. I may pop in if something comes up, but I may not. It is sad in a way but these “Top 10 posts of the Year” are are my favorite to write and to read. It is so satisfying to see lists of some of the […]
Yep. I put an exclamation point after that title, baby! Not only do I organize with the rest of the world in January as part of my non-resolution resolutions, and in the spring for “spring cleaning”, but I also get itchy to clean and organize when it is back to school time. By then we have survived a schedule free 3 months and my house is showing it. More time is spent outside than in. Every toy bin has magically turned into a miscellaneous bin, household items have migrated to new homes and can’t be found, and the closets have more clothes on the floor than on the hangers. So when the kids head off to school, I get my organizing groove on.
I have partnered with Home Decorator’s collection and I am going to share some of my favorite storage and organizational products. They also have an AWESOME giveaway for you!!!
Do you have a site that you go to that makes you drool? That gets you energized and want to spice things up in your décor? *Sigh* I do. It is called Fab! I love it because it is so UNIQUE. I love certain shall we say, popular chain stores, but I know if I buy that cute lamp, chances are someone in blogland (or 40) will have that same lamp. I love having things that are different.
I have been asked to share some of my finds from Fab. They chance their inventory ALL the time. It is fun to keep checking back and see what is new. (They have newsletters and an email subscription that helps remind me) Here is just a taste of what they have.
If you know me at all you know I love stained wood, old wood, dark wood, any kind of wonderful wood! They have beautiful pieces of furniture and accessories. I kind of really need wood sunglasses now….

If you follow me on Facebook than you probably already know that I have been asked to write some articles for Home.com.

We are probably the most un-tech savvy family ever. Everything we have is old. I just got my first cell phone a year and a half ago. And we still have a land line. So it was big deal for us to upgrade and get a new computer!
Our computer was almost 10 years old which in computer years is like 12,587 years. Sheesh! No wonder why it didn’t work.
We got our new computer from Staples. P.S. I was surprised at how many different things Staples carries. I think I am officially addicted to office supplies. My hubby and are were not super picky but we definitely wanted something with a lot of storage. Between taking pictures of my 4 kids to the blogging pics, I need STORAGE baby :) We got an HP and I love it! I am still trying to get used to Window 8 though. Please tell me it grows on you!
So our new computer was going to need a home…..
I have always wanted a piece of furniture with a bunch of tiny drawers. My mom had a spice cabinet on the wall of our kitchen growing that I would hide all sorts of treasures in. As I grew up I wanted my boys to have something similar. What I really wanted was a card catalog. I have actively searched for one for one for about three years. And the ones I found were either too big or too expensive. Every once in a while I would find a decently priced one on ebay but then I would notice the shipping. The shipping more often than not was more than the price of the cabinet!
So when I was in the planning stages of my family room renovation, I decided to figure out how to build one and make it look like an antique.
I am so stinkin’ excited to finally share with you my new family room! This post is the reveal. I will be doing more posts with tutorials, details, paint colors, ect. I will also come back here and add the links to those posts as I post them.
But for now, here she is in all her yellow glory :)
Lets do a 360 around the room.
