Good morning! I know Spring has been taking it’s sweet little time showing it’s face in Chicagoland, but I am hopeful as we flip the calendar over to April, we can’t be stuck in winter THAT much longer, right?!
Today, I’m kicking off a new series titled, My Dollar Store DIY where a group of bloggers will be sharing creative projects each month using items purchased from their local dollar store! Now, before I get to my tutorial, I want to tell you a little bit about the why behind this series. Continue reading
I kid you not. There was still glitter and metallic foil confetti in the cracks of our dining room table from Christmas when I went to spruce it up for Spring! After a(nother) good wipe down, a few new table linens, some thrifted finds and my go-to dinnerware and flatware, the table was looking oh-so-fresh again! Continue reading
While tulips fill the house, snow has buried the toys in the back yard that the boys left out when it was 70 degrees less than 2 weeks ago!! Yeah, so Spring is NOWHERE to be found here in Chicagoland, but with a few simple spring touches our home is feeling warm, bright and well, spring-y! I didn’t do much decorating for the season this year, but I did spruce up the dining room, where the bar cart sits and I’m sharing that little part with you today! You’ll get to see the dining room table all dressed up for Spring in the next week or so 😉 Continue reading
Hello! Today’s post is short, sweet and so simple, I can’t even call it a tutorial! If you remember back to my Bold Graphic Glam Dining Room I revealed during week 6 of the Fall 2016 One Room Challenge, then you probably recall seeing my stacked art that flank one of the windows in the space. I’m finally sharing the details for the bright and colorful pieces hanging in here! Let me give you a quick break-down of the “art” you see and then show you how I created this look! Continue reading
I am so honored to be here sharing some organizing knowledge with you. My name is Jessica and I am The Organized Mama! I love organizing, crafting, decorating, and watching trashy reality television, like The Bachelor!!
As a professional organizer, I have helped numerous families get their pantries in order. But the biggest stumbling block is where to start with the entire process. Continue reading
Hi, all! How are we 3 days into the month of March already??! February always tends to be a busy one around our house, so I thought I would share a little bit about what we were up to and why I wasn’t hanging out more here with all of you + an exciting announcement at the end! Continue reading
Sometimes it all comes together in a cinch. You have a DIY idea or are inspired by something, in my case an idea for a DIY geometric art piece, already have the supplies on-hand, sit down to work on it and the entire process only takes about 15 minutes. Want to know what’s even better than that?
A Sharpie was all I needed to put the finishing touches on it! Shhh don’t tell! Continue reading
Alright! You asked for it, so I’m bringing it! After posting a quick shot of a recently finished statement wall in our upstairs hallway on instagram, you guys went bananas asking for the details and sources! So today, I’m sharing all the scoop on how I created a major statement wall using over-sized photos in our hallway so you can do it too! Continue reading
Truth be told, I’m usually the one who frantically grabs a few holiday-ish decor items from a packed-away storage bin to set out a few days before the holiday arrives. I don’t mean the Christmas holiday, I’m talking the little cutesy holidays throughout the year. Like, yes, Valentine’s Day. Even as a blogger, you won’t see me decking my house out to the nines in celebration of the day of love, but creating a simple, no-fuss mantel is something I can definitely handle! Continue reading
It’s done! After a remarkably fast 4 weeks, the playroom has been significantly “refreshed” and I’m happy to report we’re all in love with it! I say we, because the space went from a catchall toy room that you could barely step foot in [the boys, included!]…to a freshly organized, bold and fun, family hangout space! Continue reading
