Well, hello April!  I can’t believe you are here already.

Now, if only the weather would catch up with you and warm up already!!

It has been a super-busy week over at The Organized Mama.

This week started out with TWO projects over on the Imagine blog. Both projects were to get you in the mood for spring!

Giant Burlap Banner

A giant banner tutorial to give you home a warm welcome using stamps and burlap.

AND paper candles to spruce up your space using DCWV paper.

Flower Candle Tutorial

I also decided to take on the One Room Challenge for our first floor bathroom!! I am actually very excited to get this space finished, because after our kitchen renovation, it was just left sitting there, feeling unpretty. (TLC anyone?!?!)

Redesigning Main Floor Bathroom

I also made a decorative piece of artwork for the kids bathroom using Xyron and Maya Road products. I think it gives the room a nice, handmade touch!!

DIY Kids Bathroom Artwork

AND I was over at Target Made Me Do It, sharing how to use Target bins to organize your preschooler’s drawers! I am sharing all my tips for keeping them organized.

Sorting Clothes Kids Organizing

In addition to all this craziness, I had some client work where I got to focus on organizing pantries!!  I just love how this one turned out!

Pantry Organization

I used the Water Hyacinth Storage Baskets and White Bin Clip Labels . To categorize the pantry, I took everything out and grouped all like foods together. Then, I created baskets to hold those categories. Some of the baskets are more general than others, like baby food. While others are more specific, like pretzels. This is based on the family’s preferences.

I just love how functional and pretty the entire space looks!

The easiest way to create pantry labels is to make them semi-general. For example, if your family eats a lot of breakfast bars and granola bars, you can make a basket that just says “bars”. This way, it isn’t just for breakfast bars.

Wishing you all a wonderful week!!
