Oh the age of digital photography. What a wonderous thing!! I know for a fact however that I take WAAAYYYY more pictures than I ever did when I had to develop film. But, I also know that I look at said photos WAAAYYYY less that I ever did when I had to develop film. With a film camera you have to print the pictures to actually enjoy them. So you do. With digital…well, they are there, on your phone, or on your computer. And, you don’t necessarily HAVE to do anything else with them. But, are you really enjoying them just sitting there on your computer or your phone?? My guess is no. I would like to say that I’ve done a good job keeping all of our photos organized and stored securely. But, then I would be lying. I have made a couple of yearbook-like photo books and I love them. So, my goal is to get everything organized and make one for each year. Seems easy enough right?? Ha! We shall see!
Hey there! How are ya?? I have to be honest, styling bookshelves used to intimidate me. Like for real. I was awful at it. But, over the years, I’ve learned a thing or two from people who seemed to be naturals at it, and now I think I’m not too bad. HA!! I also have to admit that I hadn’t touched our bookshelves in our family room for several years. Aside from adding in and taking out a few seasonal items here and there, they stayed basically the same. Here are some before pics that I had to hunt for, because I have become a terrible blogger in that I keep forgetting to take before pics!! (not great quality because they are phone pics and not meant to be before pics haha)
Hey there friends!! Just about everywhere you look on the internet and social media, people are cleaning up and cleaning out. De-cluttering, purging, organizing, all the things! And, man oh man do I love it! I don’t know what it is about the first of the year that makes people go crazy with the STUFF in their house! HAHA! Maybe it’s the extra decor we have around for a month before Christmas. Maybe it’s all the things (gifts) that come into our home at Christmas. Maybe it’s just the idea of a new year and a need for a new start. No matter what the reason, have you caught the bug??
What a year it has been! I love all things DIY and design and I love sharing with you! I appreciate each and every one of you for following along! Whether you are a new follower or one of the faithful few that have been here from the beginning (almost 6 1/2 years ago 😯 ). Like most people, I like to take some time at the end of each year to look back and see how far we’ve come, the things we’ve accomplished, and even the things that didn’t quite go as planned. So today I’m sharing the 10 posts that y’all enjoyed the most! Again, thanks for reading!
Hey there friends! Have you joined our declutter challenge?? If you have then you have been hard at work decluttering your kitchen this week!! I hope it’s going well!! It’s never too late to join! You will start where everyone else started. 🙂
Remember the focus of this challenge is to get the clutter out. But, once you do that it might be fun, and honestly probably a great idea to implement some sort of organization. It doesn’t have to be fancy. It just has to work for you and your family.
Over the years I have shared a few kitchen organizing ideas. So, I thought I would round those up for you here today. (You may have already seen these in the email, but there’s a little something extra at the end ;)).
