Command Center for our Family

This family has been in need of some serious organizing! It's been my desire to have some sort of command center for our family - which I sort of did a few years ago when I created this entry organizing dresser that I transformed.

An Organized Craft Room :: How to Keep Ribbon Organized

I have asked my blog friend, Marty of Marty's Musings, to share an area in her organized craft room, so she's going to be talking about how she's organized her ribbon supply! I love it...read on and be sure to visit to see the finished craft room HERE

Marty Walden has been blogging at Marty's Musings since 2008 but only recently has managed to turn her DIY/home/food blog into a business. She  has homeschooled  her five biological and adopted children for 20 years and loves DIYing with her husband Tim. She also has a passion to encourage and challenge other women to embrace the life they have been given and trust God through the difficult days living amidst chaos and heartbreak.  When my oldest son Joshua left for college in 2011 (and his oldest sister Rachel married six weeks later) I needed a project that would both inspire and distract me from the grief reflected by those changes. My craft/scrapbook room was just the project!

Having an Organically Clean Home

It's no secret that our family has made big steps into having a home that is, not only organized, but organically clean! We use NO chemicals when cleaning and doing laundry. I've eliminated ALL bleach and use everything natural and/or organic. So, when one of my dear blog friends, Becky of Clean Mama, began to write this book The Organically Clean Home - I was ECSTATIC!!

Why is Clutter Such a BIG Deal?

A few days ago, I shared a post I saw on Good Housekeeping's Facebook page and the caption read "See how we helped bring order to this clutter home" with a picture of a room with a little clutter.

Spring Cleaning:: Lice and How to Deal With It!

This is not a pretty subject, but chances are that you and/or one of your children will either GET lice or will have been around someone who got it. Trust me, lice does not discriminate - and actually prefer clean hair, not dirty hair! We've had it in our household - about a year and a half ago. Our church/area here seems to have suddenly had an outbreak of lice among the children - which, of course, spreads to us Mommies - cause we love to snuggle our kiddos. This time, so far, we have escaped it. My best friend, Ardena, has graciously written up all kinds of information for you to learn how to rid lice in your hair and home. She and her family had quite the battle for a couple of months with this "super lice" and I asked her to write down what she did to finally rid their home of it.

Spring Cleaning :: Cleaning Make-up Brushes

Cleaning is not my favorite thing, but is a necessary evil! Ha! some of you LOVE to clean - just like I LOVE to organize. So, I have done my best to try and embrace something I'm not crazy about doing, but doing it in a way that is fun for me. I'm not hugely into "spring cleaning" - quite honestly, we live in Southern California where most of the year is spring-like and this year we pretty much skipped winter - but I try to clean things as needed year round.

How to be hospitable even when you don't think you can

Last week, during my blog break, we hosted a whole crew of men - most of whom we've never met before - in our home for four nights. Does that sound crazy? Well, not only was it NOT crazy, but it blessed the socks off this family.
