Check Your Pockets - Laundry Room Sign

Perhaps this belongs by the hamper instead of the laundry room? I could have used one after washing and drying the following (not all at the same time): a tube of chapstick (this could have been a disaster but wasn't, it melted but the lid contained everything), felt marker (disaster - coloured the whole dryer purple), requisition form from the doctor (salvaged), money, keys, etc. etc...

Plumbing Pipe Candlesticks

If you like the industrial look you just might like these plumbing pipe candlesticks! There's a informative how to video with all the technical names for plumbing parts you can swing out so they'll think you're the cutest & plumber-butt-free plumber in the hardware store!

They spray paint the candlesticks in the video...but I kind of like the gritty looking hardware as it is. Spray painting it gold looks kinda King Midas Halloweenie (which could come in useful in a few months). I'm thinking that another colour (hot pink/white/glossy black, etc) may look more modern.

Pez Dispense Wall Art

Ok - the truth is...I'm not sure how I feel about this craft...I like the idea of spray painting Pez dispensers and hanging them on the wall but eyes without pupils freak me out! Maybe there are other toys/things that could be sprayed and mounted instead (?)... Or maybe it's the beige/white that's throwing me off. Maybe they'd be more my style if they were a punchy hot pink/acid green? I don't think art should blend in to the rest of my decor. It's still a cool idea though! From here.

I'm Back!

I'm happy to report we've survived the first 4 weeks of having a newborn join our family. It's been and adjustment but luckily our son is a very easy baby, eats, sleeps and hardly cries. We're so happy to have our healthy children - not every day, hour, minute is perfect (aka boring) but we're all doing our best (sometimes our best is not so best-like) to get along, clean up, feed each other, pay the bills and stay connected to the "real" world.

When I think of being/becoming somewhat organized one song comes to mind..."Dream the impossible Dream." Maybe there are some good websites out there? The kind that make your life easier, that not just look good but are useful? If you have come across any re: parenthood and organization please please let me know.

Hope you're all well and enjoying your summers. I can't believe it's already August! So, with all that being said I'm Back to blogging!
