U Can Do It - Get Organized!

a special feature from Leslie and Kay

When you organize your life and your home nest, it makes you feel so good and brand new. Now that Spring is here, we want to share some of our tips and tricks that we picked up during this past quarantine to give your home the refresh and organization that will not only make you smile from ear to ear, but will help improve you with your day to day, all while enjoying your beautiful home!

The Home Edit Book

1. Start with Inspiration!
We stumbled upon a new NETFLIX series called The Home Edit and fell in love…(with organizing!?!?!?) Building on the popularity of their first book, The Home Edit creators go beyond pantries and bookshelves to help bring calm to all aspects of everyday living.  In their latest book, The Home Edit Life,  authors Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin, merge organization with beautiful design so you can tackle office space, holiday storage, luggage and so much more. Learn how to set up a system that works for you. Embrace your style. Create a smart, pretty space for you and your family – including your pet. No matter who you are, this book can be the first step to finding genius organizing ideas to every area of your life. Get a copy of The Home Edit Book Here!

Pantry Organizers

2. Tackle the Pantry!
Its time to admit that we have all become hoarders in our pantry’s. Sometimes we don’t even really dig hard to look for things because we’re truly scared to see what we will find!  And it doesn’t have to be a so-called pantry…a junk drawer or closet can always use some help. We took inspiration from The Home Edit and checked out their line at The Container Store to help us with our pantry and drawer “renovations”. And, sometimes, getting started is the hardest part of getting organized. Fear no more because there are Starter Kits . All the essentials to get those scary places organized and in order are included, plus you will find solutions that you never dreamed of.


3. Get all those photos off your phone, and into a photo book!
We know how much everyone loves to receive all those thousands of new grandbaby and family photos, so now is your time to put them to good use and put them in a photo book.  It’s all about getting organized – a key word for us this Spring!  This is a great touch to any living room, adding the perfect coffee table book for you to enjoy rather than have them stuck in the cloud somewhere. Shutterfly.com makes it SO EASY to do that, even we figured it out! Create your own photobook here!

Let’s not spend too much time here on the past; we all know it’s been a challenge. Now we are perhaps in a better frame of mind and wanting to stretch ourselves for some much needed time-out. How many times have you wanted to take some time for yourself, but thought it wasn’t possible? And how many times have you complained how exhausted you are, without doing anything about it?

Shame on You- How to Know when to Keep Quiet

We are never too old to make mistakes, and consistently learn from them. What happens when we get too overzealous and interfere with perhaps the marriage of our children or our ideologies of parenting? Should we be so intent on having our ideas or experience shared- or should we wait to be invited to the conversation?

Grandparents – Are We Pushovers? well yes, of course!

The other day I made each of my grandchildren one giant and I mean GIANT heart shaped pancake larger than the plates could even hold! It was an epic breakfast time.
You know it was the kind of pancake that required a bottle of syrup, a full can of whipped cream, sprinkles and all the fixin’s that just make grandmas breakfast ever so special!
I served those precious children with such glory and turned to the get extra napkins- just anticipating the mess, when I overheard my granddaughter say to her brother: “I bet grandma can’t make a bigger pancake than this.”

A quick chuckle to share:

A quick chuckle to share:

On a recent weekend when the grandkids stayed over — our 4-year-old grandson came screaming out of the bathroom to tell me that he had dropped his toothbrush in the toilet. All the while this happened on ‘grandpa’s’ watch, as I went to do the dinner dishes!  I came right out of the kitchen and walked over to our grandson to calm him down, and I bravely fished out the toothbrush and threw it into the garbage.  I looked in his eyes, and told him, grandma has another brand-new toothbrush just for him, and he should not worry anymore.
