Crafty organization

Containers and putting things into containers, are two of my favorite things.

So The Container Store has always been my mecca. And as of last weekend, my mecca now has a home in Kansas City. To say I was excited would be an understatement. I went to the blogger luncheon, private preview party, and then to shop on Sunday...and Monday morning.

Right now, I'm focusing on getting Audrey organized. First up was her craft area in the family room. I thought the Colorware Smart Store Totes were perfect for the job.

The system is already a hit with Audrey. I love being able to take an individual container out so not much room is used on her table...and Audrey has already been putting them away when done without being asked (although I'm sure that honeymoon period won't last long).

My only complaint is that the container itself is too difficult for Audrey to open. But I have no problem opening it for her or just leaving the lid off. So yeah, definitely worth it.

De-nursery (tear)

I knew this day would come, but it still hurts. It's time to start saying my goodbyes to Audrey's nursery.

Last month, while I was putting Audrey to bed, she told me that her room needed more pink and asked me why I chose green picture frames above her bed.

That night, I started browsing the internet for ideas.

And I fell in love with a duvet (and may have already acquired it).

It's last year's Pottery Barn Kids Paisley Pop line, and I found a great deal for it on eBay.

Now that I have an amazing color palette of pink, teal, green and orange to work with – it's time to start having some fun. I'm hoping to have her room done later this year.
