my new cuties!

I love daily deal sites and love to order mostly scrap booking supplies from places like Peachy Cheap, Scrap ace,, and Zulily.  Today was my lucky day.  Look what I found on Zulily!!!!!!!!!!  I love my Tom's and I have been in the market for some glitter ones.  I found these babies for around $20 cheaper than I would find them at Nordstrom or Leroy's.  Woo Hoo!  No scrap supplies for me today, just super cute shoes. I just had to share because at home its just me and my husband, and he would just laugh and shakes his head.  Men just don't understand these things.  Anyway, if you have a chance, head over to Zulily before all the styles are sold out.

I heart organization!

So I stumbled into IKEA to pick up a small cube for my Expedit obsession and I found the best little bin.  This bin or drawer organizer was only $3.00 and it is a fabulous fit for all the small things that hang around my craft desk. This is called “Antinious”, and as you can see in the picture, my label maker, my favorite Jillibean Soup labels, some washi tape, and other small things can now sit organized and quiet in their own space.  After I got home I realized what a fabulous fit this is was so immediately I went online to order more, but wouldn’t you know it?  Not available online.  Damn!!!  Now I need to go back, but the closest one is an hour away.  Fortunately I am going to be in the area on a work trip, so I think I may be able to sneak back in.   $3.00 each and now I think I need at least 6 more.  Two for my junk drawer in the kitchen, one for my Sentsy drawer, two for my vanity drawer in my bathroom, one for my husbands bathroom drawer and I may just pick up 2 more just in case.  I told you before, organization is my passion.  I have a sick obsession with totes, bins, and my label makers.  I heart stores like Bed, Bath, & Beyond, The Container Store, Organized Living, Ikea, even Big Lots.  It’s a sickness that can’t be helped.  Oh well, at least I don’t drink.
Until next time my friends, I hope you have a great day.

Peaceful Saturday afternoon

Peaceful and relaxing Saturday with absolutely no plans at all.  I know I need to clean the upstairs bathrooms, and I know I have a few loads of laundry up there waiting as well, but for right now...I am sitting here totally peaceful. This is my view from where I am online shopping in the dining room.  I'm looking into sitting room by the front door, I can see the girl scouts outside (I just bought my husband his favorite peanut butter patties) and the neighbor kids on the sidewalk riding back and forth on their scooters. I can hear my husband in the family room watching a movie and today just feels like bliss.  It's overcast outside, the downstairs is all clean and vacuumed, and my Scentsy is burning a fabulous scent in the family room that is covering all the rooms.  I think I will enjoy this rare quiet time for a few more minutes and then take my happy self to the Redbox to get a movie for later.
Until next time my friends-
