Organization = Better Decor

I decided to tackle organizing the built-in bookcase today.

And it makes the area look a TON better. Who knew...just organizing can make your house look so much cuter?

A few organization gems I realized today:

1. I really didn't need all the junk that was on my bookshelves. I redistributed some things and put some things in a Goodwill pile.

2. Less really is more. Some things just needed to come off to make it all look better.

3. Personal momentos really add a cute touch to a bookshelf. Like our Dublin, TX Dr. Pepper glass bottles. LOVE those.

4. If you haven't used it in over a year, toss it. I was talking about magazines. I can never give up books. I become attached.

Nasty, old bookcase:


New and improved:


Oh yeah, a little close up on those blocks:





Cute, eh? Oh how I wish I had a vinyl cutter!

Table Runner

I recently made this table runner as a gift and I think it turned out really cute.

It helped me practice quilting with my "feed dogs" down. Yes, I am a beginner, so do not mock.

I hope the recipient liked it!

Cloth Diapers

It's been FOREVER since I posted!!

I have a husband around plus a toddler, so they keep me busy during the day.

My wonderful friend gave me a pattern for cloth diapers, so I made a couple for Luke to try out. I love them! I think we'll definitely use them for baby #2.

I think Luke is getting kind of too big for the biggest size in this pattern, so I'll have to just make some for the new baby. But they can help save us money, so I'm all for it!

Anybody have any cloth diaper stories?
