Fabric Organization and Blank Clothing Storage

Fabric organization

I have to make a confession…I have a craft problem.  Specifically a craft supply problem.  Like I go to Hobby Lobby to buy one particular thing for a project and walk out with 10 other items that I “might” need later.  This problem has only increased since I started doing machine embroidery.  Now I have my eyes on a new beautiful supply…fabric.  The possibilities are endless with applique fabric combinations.  One design can look so different depending on what fabrics[Read more]

DIY Craft Table and Fabric Organization

In my last post, I confessed that I might have a slight obsession embroidery and applique.  A few years ago, my newfound hobby took over my dining room table pretty quickly.  I had my machine set up at one end and I used the other end to spread out my shirts and get them ready (hooped) to put on the machine.  I began collecting fabric every time I went shopping, which also piled up on my table.   The organizer in[Read more]

How to Tackle Freezer Organization

I have been living with my newly organized refrigerator for about a month now and am LOVING it.  Because food is organized by groups and is labeled, my husband and kids have not messed it up LOL.  Also a quick tip for you; label your leftovers with a piece of washi tape and write the date you cooked it.  This comes in so handy when cleaning out the fridge.  I write dates on everything I open as well.  My Kitchen Home[Read more]

One of my biggest struggles as a parent is the never ending question of “What’s for dinner?”.  I really dislike that question.  If it were up to me I would eat cereal every night.  Ok maybe not EVERY night, pizza is nice too haha.  No, but seriously, every day when we get home it is always a scramble to throw something on the table for us to eat.  And it never fails that I always succumb to the same 4[Read more]
