So my family lives in a nice 2 bedroom apartment right now and we have baby number 2 coming in March.  We know we can make it work for awhile since our apartment is a good size.  It is nice cause rent is low, we have a garage, we have big closets, and huge bathroom, and heat and water is included, a washer and dryer included.  So there are lots of advantages to living in this apartment.  I would have to stay that many times I wish we had a house, funny thing is we are homeowners but we are now landlords because we moved away from that city.

So the last few days hubby and I have been discussing how to organize the house to make it:
1. make room for the baby
2. get rid of the clutter
3. make the house easier to clean when everything has a place where it belongs.

This morning we headed out shopping and purchased three- 3 shelf bookcases.  2 bookcases were set up and placed in our big closet under the steps.  So we were able to take the 3 huge rubbermaid tubs out (which made it hard to use anything in them because you had to dig) and organize them into better smaller containers that you can see and place them on shelf.  Now you can walk in the closet and one bookshelf has all our electronic type things such as blank cds, chords, cameras, tools, etc etc.  The other bookcase has my sewing machine, knitting supplies, hair clip supplies, and Selah's outside toys.  Just organizing the closet was AWESOME!  :)  I did not take a picture of that but I did take a picture of the last book shelf, which is on our living room.  It is close to the door when you walk in so you can place the mail and keys in one of the baskets.  Then I imagine it will house other things such as books, baby toys, or any other baby thing.  It looks super cute and we found these baskets at the dollar store!  :) So here is a picture:

Yes I am nesting and I love it!  :)  Organization feels so awesome!!!  :)  I do have to mention that my hubby is the one who set all the baskets on the bookcase... he has the design eye!  LOL!!!  Love you babe!!


Good Luck with everything. We moved from a normal sized house into a smaller house because it had more land. It can be hard getting organized. I'm sure you guys will find lots of ways to do it!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
