How to Organize Paint and Supplies

Welcome back to the second in my series of Home Organization posts! Previously, I shared how to declutter and store your holiday decor and wrapping supplies. Today I am going to tackle the dreaded paint closet. If you are a DIYer like me, you probably have a ton of paint cans, jars, and sprays in several sizes. Not to mention, you also have all the related supplies such as brushes, rollers, roller holders, poles, pans, and cups! We are lucky enough to have a closet area under our basement stairs to store these in, but how do I keep it organized?

I have been taking Barre classes for about a year at my local YMCA and lately I have gotten several questions about it, when posting about it in my Instagram stories. Barre is a ballet-based full body workout, which targets the lower body, abs, and arms. One of the questions I have gotten is what to wear, so I am here to break it down for you today.

A new year is time for a new beginning and getting organized after the craziness of the holidays.

I like to take advantage of a little bit of down time after the holidays to declutter, clean, and get organized.

For the last couple of years, I have chosen a "word of the year" to focus on along with setting my goals. This year, my word chose me. I had been struggling to settle on a word and while flipping through my planner, adding important dates, there it was at the beginning of April's calendar... "Flourish." Flourish means to "grow or develop in a healthy or vigorous way, especially as the result of a particularly favorable environment." It was perfect! I feel like my life is at a good place right now, but I want to make it even better by Owning It in 2018.

I hope you enjoyed my recent post on my top 5 readers favorites of 2017, which oddly enough did not include any of my fashion posts. My friend Ashley at The Mixed Bag commented that she would like to see a year in review fashion post, which I though was a great idea!

How To Add Valentine's Decor To an Entryway

I am partnering with Oriental Trading to bring you ideas for affordable Valentine's decor. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Now that Christmas is over and I have taken down all the decorations, the house looks so bare. I decided to add a little bit of cheer back into my entry way with some Valentine's decor. We have been enjoying our recently completed mudroom space, so I thought it would be the perfect place to add some pops of red and gold.

What I Am Wearing - Long Cardigan and Crop Top

It seems like style always comes back around and lately it seems like all of the trends I wore in my late teens and early 20's is coming back into fashion, like the long duster cardigan. I had several of these back in the day and wish I would not have gotten rid of them. I love the dramatic look of the long length with a short cropped tee underneath.

Glittery Mason Jar Makeup Brush Holder

Happy New Year! Can you believe it is already 2018? What better way to start off the new year than with an organization project? I love to use mason jars in my home decor and DIY projects! They come in many sizes and can be used in so many ways. Today, I am sharing how I re-purposed mason jars into decorative holders for my makeup brushes.

I used chalkboard paint and glitter vinyl to re-purpose mason jars into decorative holders for my makeup brushes.

2017 Reader's Favorite Posts and 2018 Goals

Happy New Year! Can you believe it is already 2018? This year really flew by for me. It is always fun to reflect and see what all I accomplished over the last year. I am going to recap some of my personal life changes and accomplishments and share my Top 5 Blog posts from 2017, picked by YOU!


Last January, I embarked on a new career path, when I left my corporate job of 16 years and took a job as the Part-Time Office Manager at my church, which meant I also had more time to focus on blogging as well. It has been one of the best decisions I have ever made and the Lord has provided for the lack of income with my blog and other sources of income through side projects. If you want to read more about my decision, I shared about it in THIS POST. Also, on the personal front, my son turned 16 and got his driver's licence, which is the reason for a few more gray hairs. Oh, and we finished a MAJOR basement reno, which we have been working on for over 2 years!
