You are the Keeper of the Magic.


 

[siteorigin_widget class=”SiteOrigin_Widget_Hero_Widget”][/siteorigin_widget]

As the holiday season rolls out the red carpet some of us sigh in delight. Just as many of us sigh, feeling “meh”.  That feeling that the magic of the season just isn’t what it once was. We look around and just can’t seem to get into the flow of the season. Even when in your heart you’re positive this is your favorite season.  Continue reading

Creative Storage for Kids Rooms


 

[siteorigin_widget class=”SiteOrigin_Widget_Hero_Widget”][/siteorigin_widget]

I have a pillow that sits in my living room that reads, “Support your local wildlife, have children.” This nicely sums up that I think my children, now teens, are mostly feral. However, Suzanna Kaye, professional organizer has a super sweet awesome 7 year old, so there is still a great deal of hope at her house.

Check out this great facebook live (okay, facebook video that was recorded in advance but aired at the same time as the live). Continue reading
