When we moved into our new house, we decorated top to bottom. I looked around for cute rugs, but wanted the kids to be comfortable. I came across Tregolden modern mats which are not only comfortable for the kids, but look great with my decor. The Tregolden modern mats are the perfect compromise when you want safety without making your house look like a play zone.
I’m currently obsessed with indoor plants. Everyone else must be as well if Pinterest is any indication. They’re not your grandmothers’ plants anymore. They bring the outside in and lighten and brighten your interior instantly giving it appeal and looking stylish to guests. What’s fresher than a plant?
I don’t know about you, but I have a ton of jewelry. Great jewelry.
And I wear the same jewelry every day.
Why? Because it is organized but in a bin so I have to dig everything out in order to figure out what to wear!
My next project will be organizing my jewelry in a way that it is displayed so that it is easier to get to.
I want to be able to simply go look and grab what I want without digging or untangling.
Is that so much to ask?
You know I am all about organization and everything is in its place!
So, I’ve looked high and low. And in my research, I found some really great ideas and have compiled them here to help others who have the same dilemma.
There are some I chose not to include. If it didn’t hang necklaces to keep them from knotting, I won’t use it.
Whether your budget is big or small, I’ve got ideas for EVERYONE! I am undecided which to choose at this point, so you all help me decide by telling me your favorite!! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

No hole drilling. No tools needed. I’ve compiled the best of the best of genius command hook uses. Hopefully, they are useful to you and inspire your own ideas!
As you already know if you read my blog, I am an avid organizer. I like everything to have a place and everything to be in its place. I am always looking for ideas I’ve not thought of. Bedroom organization is helpful to save time, have more productive mornings and is important if you have limited space.
For me, sticking to a budget includes gifts for others. This doesn’t mean that they aren’t special. I always look for ideas that I can keep and turn into something meaningful for them. Now, you may be the type to think homemade gifts are tacky. This is not true for the majority of those receiving a gift. For example, my job is working with college girls and the best gift I ever received was a box of cards that they each wrote things they loved about me and our time together as well as photos.
The best Christmas ornaments are those that the family makes together. The times spent doing these activities are memorable and those ornaments are keepsakes and remind us of the time spent. Some of my best memories are of my time spent with my grandmother making ornaments. They are also the best gifts. I love the ornaments I get from the kids! I’ve compiled the cutest keepsakes that your family can spend time on together. I’d love to see what your kids make!
