M.I.A. Blogger And A Label Maker!

Hola beautiful people!  I am back and hopefully on a more regular basis.  These past November through February months (now) have had me so busy that honestly I was just too drained to share anything.  I have also been too busy to craft, DIY or whip up anything in the kitchen to share with you all.  Well I did make my daughter a Barbie cake for her birthday a couple of weeks ago but my photos came out un-Pinterest worthy.  Womp, womp.

It actually makes me a little sad (lack of posts) especially since there are some folks that read my blog and ask me when I'm going to have another post.  I'm like genuinely excited when someone asks me about a new post because I didn't think many people read my blog except for me, me and my sweet co-worker, Tabitha.  Hi, Tabitha!  :)

But since I'm back I am thinking of some posts to share with you all and to start off my little come back, I'll share with you all my January Costco find.  A label maker!  Woot!

I guess to kick-off the organizing month, Costco was stocked up on an array of organizing items including this Brother P-touch PT-1880c label maker.  If memory serves me right, I think I paid about $32 or so for the label maker, two cartridges and the batteries.  I thought this was a pretty good deal and I have been wanting and needing one of these babies for a very long time.  

Not long after I got home I busted it open the package and got to making my first label.  The first word did not come out so great and I guess that is because it was the start of the tape.  I printed two more "WATER" words so that I could use on an organizing project that I had started at the same time.  The only downfall to this label maker (which I already knew about) is how much tape is wasted in between start and end.  Too much space is allotted and the only way to cut down on that is to type all of your desired words in one sitting and space out as you desire.  See my example below.  grrrrrr.

I'll show you all in my next post why I printed out a water label.  Until then have a good week and I hope to see y'all on the flip side (whatever that means).  Ta ta!

Glass Vase Snowman Decor {Craft DIY}

Hello peeps!  Who is still stuffed from all of the Thanksgiving deliciousness?  Or broke from those fab after-Thanksgiving sales?  I don't do the whole crazy shopping thing but I am stuffed and happy.  I got to watch lots of t.v. and in my jammies.  Woot!  

On to my latest project, except I made this last year so I'm kinda lying.  I never got to share this with you guys because of lots of computer problems.  Anywho, I made a snowman using two floral vases.

I was inspired to make this snowman after I saw another blogger make with decor with round floral vases.  She used different glitter for each vase and then topped each one with a witch hat.  It was classy and cute.  And darn.  I wish I could remember that blogger and her site. 
Well here is how I got down to business when making this snowman.

Organizing da Hair Accessories

Before my daughter was born it was just the hubby, our boy and me.  I only had me to worry about when it came to all things hair.  Then baby girl came along and little by little the hair accessories, combs, brushes and everything else started to pile up and take over my middle bathroom drawer.  Up until a couple of weeks ago my hair accessory drawer looked like this:

It was so bad and I couldn't stand it any longer.  Actually it had been quite some time that I could not stand but I finally got around to organizing it.  While still on holiday vacation in early January, the kids and I took a field trip to The Container Store.  One of my new favorite stores.  Love!

After browsing, browsing, browsing and more browsing I finally got down to business.  Mainly because the kids were getting restless otherwise I could have spent the whole day there and compiled a huge wish list.  I came home with some Linus drawer organizers and after a major make-over our hair accessories bathroom drawer lo…

Organized Linen Closet... Finally!

Hi peeps.  Are y’all done decorating for fall yet?  No? Oh wait that's just me.  My decor is going up little by little as the hubs grudgingly brings more Fall/Halloween totes down from the attic.  heehee.
I do however want to show off (‘cause that’s what happens in blog land) my now neat and tidy linencloset thanks to this pin on my Organization board from Better Homes & Gardens that helped me get'er done.  Ta-da!

It is a small closet in my short and narrow hallway so taking full length photos of the before and after was a challenge.  But believe me you this thing was way too crowded and stuffing clean towels into each shelf was just plain dumb.  There was too much going on in there especially with the ball caps and candles taking up valuable space on one shelf.  So just like my utensil drawerlarge utensil drawer, and junk drawer I got to work.  As I told you in my last post, I got the caps out of there and hung up in the coat closet. 
I then emptied out the entire closet a…
