Wishful Wednesday – DreamCraft May 5, 2010

Scrapbook or Craft Room Project Table by dreamcraftnh

I found this beauty the other day while surfing around for organization ideas. As a crafty flake,  my crafting space is a little chaotic. I have stuff folded in rubber-maid containers, finished products packaged in wicker display baskets, but I don’t have any cute shelving or proper cubbyholes or labels. I long for a great creative space. Honestly, could this gorgeous crafting center fit into my space? nope, not unless we did some major renovating (hmmmm….). I love all the sheer pullout drawers that allow you to see inside, the vanilla bean paint, the butcher block top, ahhh.. so beautiful. My crush.

Let me show you the other side, it actually gets better. I was expecting nothing but a flat vanilla back, but voila – shelves!! dreamcraftnh allows the buyer to customize their craft center by sending a convo with your needs, wants and ideas. They will even send the product unfinished to allow you to make it your own.

Show dreamcraftnh a little blog love today and stop by her shop and give her some faves – it is a relatively new shop.


Montage Monday – Organization March 8, 2010

With spring weather comes spring cleaning. Eeeek.

I have to admit that cleaning is something that I loathe. Not because its unpleasant, but as a stay at home mom it seems as I clean and tidy, I have a mess crew directly behind me making things worse. This is a huge roadblock in my organization.

One cool tool I found last year that I’m going to share with you is Motivated Moms. They have devised a one year check list of almost all the things you need to do to keep ahead of the chaos. I LOVE CHECKLISTS! Sure, some days, or weeks I stray away from my list, but the weeks where I have it out and accessible at least my house is clean, maybe not tidy, but clean.

Go check it out, they even have a 2 week free print out:
