keeping organised


This is such a clever idea! Not mine at all but my genius friend Rebecca's. I originally saw this idea on her blog. Since Lois is a month old today and it's my husband's birthday tomorrow, it was time to take the cards down. I love the idea of keeping them all together in a little book that she can look at when she's older and it's a lovely keepsake - thanks for sharing Rebecca!


I've also washed the kids bedding today and couldn't help but think wouldn't this be the cutest quilt backing?! It was actually mine as a child and I still smile every time I look at it!



Today I also discovered that the best way of clearing up a table that has been covered in glitter is to break out the playdough and roll it around to make glittery playdough... what could have been a big clear up job turned into another game. Win!

  5. Oh my gosh, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Mr. Men!! We had so many of the books, my son Owen went through a real phase a few years ago and we collected many of them. We even have Mr. Nosey from when my hubby was little.

  10. SHUTUP! I just saw the title in my email involved "organized" and well I had to read that...little did I know that it was because of something I did. Ha! How cool! Thank you...

    And thank you also for the glitter idea, after Valentine's Day there is glitter on every surface of my house. Totally busting out the playdough tonight!

  14. I am glad you are having some fun times! I kept all my sons baby cards in scrap books, although I'm not sure they are too interested in them!! Maybe its a 'girl' thing!
