I absolutely love the hardwood floors in the entryway to my home. The floor gives the area great charm and really adds an air of sophistication to my apartment. The hardwood floors are easy to maintain and keep clean, but there was one slight issue. And that issue was my dog. When she is coming home from a walk, she is always in a mad scurry to get back, and sprints through the front door without abandon. The only problem with her exuberance is that hardwood floors and doggy claws are not a good mix at all. I started to notice a few severe scratch marks on the otherwise pristine wood floors. Read more
Recently Jennifer Ford Berry asked me to review her newly revised book – Organize Now! A week-by-week guide to simplify your space and your life.
I gladly jumped on it – I love organizing books!
I have to say, first off, that I love the book itself. It’s a hard bound spiral notebook that looks like a leather bound daily planner. The pages are thick to withstand frequent use and make quick referencing easy. The pages of each section are accented with fun colors and coordinating prints and sprinkled with some great quotes. It’s just an all-around fun book to look at and use! Read more

I have to share with all you pet lovers the cutest site devoted to loving and celebrating your favorite pets!
There have been so many great books written which give us the tools, tips and tricks for getting things done in an organized and efficient way. And they have been so helpful for me. But there are still times when I find myself procrastinating or avoiding certain tasks, even though I have the skills to conquer them, and not really understanding why I’m putting them off. Does this happen to you?
Well, I found a fantastic book that is helping me address exactly that. Read more
“It is one toy that allows two children to be together, but separate at the same time.
Twins love being together, but they always have to share just about everything.
This children’s easel does not require them to take turns and each child can have his or her own space without purchasing two separate products.
How many toys can you say that about?” Read more
As a sewer/crafter, I seem to have so much stuff, but not enough room…. but about 4 months back I found this site!
I started ordering the modulars. Not only are they easy to put together, whenever I either feel like changing things around I can just flip them over and move the entire box with items already inside. !!!GRIN!!! They hold up to 200 pounds, and have so many styles and uses. But my favorite will always be the ones with a shelf. I can sit it staight up and now have all my patterns oganized. I used to have them all in a giant old brown box. It always looks neat and there’s seiously a place for EVERY ITEM! Thanks so much fo such a terrific product!!!
