Let’s Get Organized!

Easy DIY Tin Can Organizers for your desk or art closet via @PagingSupermom

We always find it hard to dive back into our normal routine after the holidays. We’ve been enjoying a laid back routine, and that’s probably why this post, which was supposed to go up yesterday, is making it up a day late. We hope you’ll bear with us as we try to get things back on track.

It seems only fitting to being the new year with a post about getting organized. I recently looked in on our family room cupboard and was bombarded by a disorganized tangle of craft supplies and toys. We’ve spent some of our time over the holidays getting organized, and these tin cans turned organizers are the perfect way to corral kid scissors, colored pencils, crayons and the like.

Easy Star Ruler Wreath

Love this idea from @PagingSupermom. Super easy to whip together for #BackToSchool Decor

We are all sad that summer is over already. I have been trying to cheer things up with a bunch of fun back to school prep. We’ve decorated our mantle (using this and this), we have been clothes shopping, and of course stocking up on school supplies. I think I’ve mentioned before that buying school supplies is my favorite parts of back to school season. In fact, I have been known to buy a bucket-full of paper, pencils, crayons, rulers, glue and more and keep them in a cheerful bucket on my kitchen counter. I swear it cheers me up as much as a floral arrangement, but I know I’m kind of weird.

I love the project we created for this month’s issue of Raising Arizona Kids magazine. It is a super-easy ruler star, and it would look so fabulous on our mantle. I can’t find then one we made for this photoshoot so I’m off to the store today to buy more rulers so I can make one with the kiddos this afternoon — because you know I’m happy for any excuse to buy more school supplies!
