Introducing The 2017 Home Management Planners!

I’m so excited to announce the new 2017 planners are in the shop! I’ve got my Planner Studio up and running at the new house. I put together each planner and I love doing it. I made a video tour and I’ll let it do the talking! Over the next few months I will be sharing […]


To Help Someone Else – Love Home Challenge

This week’s focus is really fun! We are going to think of a project that helps someone else in our home! Part of Loving our Homes more is creating a good feeling in our homes. Showing kindness and thoughtfulness by example, love will be felt this week, and that is a pretty good feeling. If […]


STAR WARS Stormtrooper Popcorn Box FREE PRINTABLE

One night recently, I thought I was so clever putting my 3-year old to bed. My husband was out-of-town on business, I was really tired, and I just wanted him to stay in bed! I asked him what he wanted to be for Halloween and he listened attentively as I listed possibilities. When I said “Stormtrooper” […]


Moving In: How To Clean & Prep The Garage

You learned in May that I think garages are very important. When you move, the garage becomes an important area to stage and store things as you put your inside home together. The garage is the first and the last place I suggest worrying about when you are moving. This is how I suggest approaching the […]


The Funny Things I Found In My New House

MOVING IS SO FUN! – said no one ever. This part of Texas is a seller’s market right now, so some home sellers are stretching the bounds of common decency because they can get away with it. We looked at a half-million dollar home that had only been on the market for a few days and […]

Moving? 10 Things A Professional Organizer Buys FIRST

Have a whole bunch of rooms that are a huge cluttered mess and you don’t know where to start? I help clients figure out where to start. I bet you already know that […]


New House BEFORE Pictures (Finally!)

We moved furniture into this house Labor Day weekend. In celebration of a month living in our new house in Texas, I thought I’d share the pictures I took the day before the furniture arrived. I call these BEFORE pictures. Of all the homes I looked at, I chose this house, so obviously I like […]


Gathering Place – Love Home Challenge

I think when you decorate your home, you should ignore fads and trends for the most part. You know how everyone is making pure white houses right now, especially kitchens? No doubt I’ve seen some beautiful mostly white homes, but I predict that soon people will start to crave a little warmth and color in […]


Bedroom Week – Love Home Challenge

If I’ve failed to say it outright, let me fix that now: Your house is not going to look *just like you want it to* overnight. There are circumstances in which people gut and renovate an entire room and create their dream kitchen, spa-like master bathroom, or fill-in-the-blank-AMAZING-room in a short amount of time. These people usually are […]
