I desperately needed a way to organize my most used supplies. As a Craft/ Sewing blogger I can be a bit of a hoarder. You just never know when you are going to need something. Or you have to have twine in every color! So I came up with this beauty. It is functional, adorable and super easy to make. I did have to call on my neighbor to borrow a saw but you could just make is a rectangle too and it would be awesome!

The other day I shared a little about goal setting. I decided it was never to early to start setting goals. So I made my printable for the kids. I printed them off and laminated them. The kids can write there goals on them with a marker and use them to remind them about What they want tot achieve.
So click on the links and pick a couple out for your kids!

Over the past few months I have really been thinking about goal setting and how it can influence my life. I have shared may a conversations with other about the topic. I even shared my thoughts about the subject with my Young Women, and how important it can be when making long term plans and goals. I have never really been a goal writer. It just isn't something I have ever really done.
A friend shared a study with me on the positive effects of goal setting. Did you know that people who write there goals down are more likely to follow through? And even more impressive is that when it comes to jobs and education those goal writers achieve higher grades and make upwards of 1o times form money than those who don't? I was amazed at the statistic.
Then I heard Noelle Pikus Pace speak, she truly inspired me to want more! I needed to decide what I really to achieve. I came up with these free goal setting printable's to help me on my journey.

As a member of The LDS Church I have learned since I was young Always be prepared. Now my family was not always active and we frequently lived month to month. So preparedness was not really something we did. But as I got older I began to learn more and more about being prepared and the blessings that come from heeding the prophets words. Preparedness is not just something that is for the Zombie Apocalypse or a huge natural disaster. But can be used when life isn't going our way or during an economic down turn. I have and know families who have used food storage after a job loss or 72 hour kits were used after a fire or flood. President Hinckley gave a talk, If ye are prepared ye shall not fear. After hearing that talk I decided that I would take the 5 topics he suggested and begin to work on those things to have for my family. So today I have compiled blog posts from others to give you the Ultimate Top 10 Emergency Preparedness blog links to help you get prepared! Being prepared for any kind of disaster is so important. Gathering a few everyday items to a central location can make a difference!

Spring is just around the corner and that means 2 of my favorite things happen.
1. Winter Gear gets put away and my mud room stays clean and 2. Sock matching goes out the window because we wear sandals! Yeah for Spring!!
Instead of just putting away our winter gear I get it ready for an emergency. Living here in Idaho, even in the summer we can have some cold nights. So if we were to ever have an emergency we would most likely need our winter gear to keep warm. So I have my own way of keeping my winter gear together during the summer months just in case.

These past few weeks have been crazy busy for me. My kids have been out of school for spring break and that alone makes life crazy. I have had an itch to work on my closet. It is crazy unorganized, dark and blah. It is huge and can fit 2 full sized mattresses end to end. Let me also say “I am a blogger and I am unorganized”. There I said it. I may need an 8 step program or something. I am a blogger and I am unorganized. My house is rarely tidy. I have 4 kids and projects to do. Much more fun than walking around with a dish cloth in my hand all ..day…long. Bless those of you who do. I am just not that type of person. I would like to be but not enough to give up what makes me happy! So onto my unorganized closet… and a giveaway!

After a few crazy unorganized months (not all bloggers are super organized), I decided it was time to jump on the command center bandwagon. My schedule seems to have spun out of control. Sick kids, Holidays, sports and school activities. So many things a mom must do to keep a happy family. I have an amazing mudroom in my home. iron board, floor to ceiling lockers for the kids, wash basin and 1/2 bath. I didn't have a lot of wall space to work with and there are so many cool command centers out there. This one seems to work best for me.
