Our New Other "Home"

A few weeks ago I told you that we poured a concrete pad in our backyard where the kids had their playset. We have been planning on purchasing our own RV since we were able to use my husband's sister's RV when they moved across the country recently. It was a great chance to see if we would really like to have one. And after using it for six months, we decided we definitely wanted one for ourselves!

My Best DIY Projects Ever!

I LOVE to do DIY projects. I LOVE spray paint. I LOVE to decorate and transform spaces in my home, especially. Do you? I was looking back through all my projects I've done over the last 4 1/2 years and I know that you might enjoy seeing what I've done. Perhaps you've never even seen them since you're newer to Organizing Made Fun. But, I'm a spray painting queen! Ha! I love that stuff. And, I like changing things up - I love color and patterns!

This Year's Organizing Goals

I definitely have some organizing goals for this year. I don't resolve to be organized each year - I mostly have that, but I DO need to re-organize areas in and around my home so they work better for my lifestyle changes. This year marks five years of blogging for me - so much has changed in this past five years...

Homeowner Woes!

Well, as much as I absolutely LOVE living in an older home, it DOES come with some problems from time to time. We got to experience that recently. I thought I'd share this with you as we are getting ready to make some changes and I hope to blog more about the DIY and updates on that, too. 

We are hoping to purchase  a used RV this year. In anticipation of this, we are putting in an RV "parking area" in our backyard. We have the perfect spot - the kids play area. Now that the kids are older, they aren't using that anymore. So, we decided that this would make a great place to park our future RV.

FIVE Ways to Feel Good about Clean this Christmas

Every year I spend the week after Thanksgiving scrambling to get all our Christmas decorations up before we have all our company over the next weekend - since we are gone the whole Thanksgiving weekend. We frequently have people over, but Christmas time we have even more over than usual. So, I've come up with five #CleanFeelsGood moments that I've used to stay on top of having my house clean and organized when all that company shows up.

Transitions in Organization

My assistant, Tiffany, is here to show you how to help your toddler more organized! Don't have a toddler? Maybe you have a teenager? She does too! I'm sure if you don't, you know of someone who does -- share this post with them!


Have you ever stopped and realized that something around your house is suddenly a disaster? You used to have a very orderly system that keeps you moving along quickly and all of the sudden you can't find what you need, you find yourself tripping over things and feeling irritated every time you are in that area. You think to yourself "What happened? How did I become so disorganized?" I am here to tell you it may not be you! You may just be in transition. Parenting children from 1-18 years old has shown me the need to continually manage the transition times of life if I am going to keep everything running smoothly in the long run.
