Anyone else counting down the days until schools out??  We have one week left, then the kids are off for two weeks before camp starts.

I am actually really excited for some time off. Not having to rush out the door. Just lounge around in our jammies for the morning!

But for now, I am all about focusing on what needs to get accomplished before then!  Eek!

So biggest news ever… my craft table was featured on Wayfair!!!  AHHHH!!!  So excited and so honored!!

I also was part of a blog hop with a bunch of crafty bloggers where I created a DIY ABC wall art to hang in the kids play room, since that is my focus this month.  Plus, you can enter for a chance to win two $25.00 gift cards for amazing crafting supplies!! Check out the post for all the details.

DIY ABC Wall Art

And I had some fun with some clients this week!

I started the week by organizing and rearranging a client’s broom closet and cleaning supplies. I ended up combining all the cleaning supplies into the broom closet, and using the space above the sink in her laundry room for storage of laundry supplies and lights.

At another client’s house I got to hide all the toys around the living room. Once we finished, it felt like she got her room back!

Drawer Pantry Organization Labels

Finally, I ended the week labeling this amazing pantry using my all-time favorite organizing/crafting tools… the Xyron Creative Station Lite with laminate refill. I just cut some pretty paper from Lawn Fawn to act as the base of the label. Then I used my Tombow calligraphy pen to write in my big handwriting. Finally I ran the labels through the Creative Station Lite and cut out. I placed the laminated labels under the mat in the pantry so it would hold. I also added binder clips to hold the drawer labels in place.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!!
