I have a confession to make

I am a scrapbooker who doesn’t scrapbook. There. I said it. I love going into scrapbook supply stores, I love the trinkets, the colors, the beautiful papers. However, I use them for items throughout the house that can be seen. Don’t get me wrong, I have scrapbooked. It takes a LONG time though. Here is a sampling of things I have done around the house…






You will soon find out (in case you aren't picking up on that yet) that I love to organize. Oh, I have my fair share of paper piles and mountains of laundry (insert my mom laughing here), but it takes some of the anguish out of doing it if you know it’s going to look pretty—not just neat—when you do it!

When someone gets a cut in your house, isn’t it more fun to take this out?













Then, of course, there's the dog. He will be another post when I have more time. For now, here's his "grooming" tin.
Lastly, what is organization without organizing TOYS? Bins + labels + toys = happy mom.





















As I've said before, I am a visual person. So...enjoy all the pictures! P.S. This blog thing takes a long time. Am I dumb, or are there short cuts?

Ha, I was a Creative Memories CONSULTANT for five years but really didn't LOVE to scrapbook. I just loved getting all the cute stuff.

Welcome to blogging!

Oh my gosh! We are too much alike. I have been spending way too much time reading your old posts. I have those exact same canvas bins from Target for my kids' toys. With labels. Tied to the bins with ribbon. Which I have been teased for.....so glad I'm not the only one!
