I was just looking for a better way to store my pots without adding more cabinet space in my kitchen and VOILA! Leave it to Martha to come …

Free Kids’ Valentines

If your child’s classroom is anything like mine, things are NOT like they were when I was in school! Gone are the days of carefully choosing cards for each of our friends; they’ve been replaced with a more politically correct handwriting assignment!

Easy Desk Organizers

I constantly feel like I’m cleaning and attempting to organize my daughter’s desk. While my mother (who is truly like Martha!) made it with her own two hands of her own design, there are not any drawers to put things in, so it is constantly scattered with pens, papers and other assorted items a 5 year old collects! So imagine …

How to Organize Your Linen Closet

In my continuing saga to develop my inner Martha, I tackled the linen closet today (no, that’s not a picture of mine above – it’s Martha’s, of course. Because I’m not Martha, I only had time to do fold/organize my sheets, let alone refold every towel, label the shelves, take a picture AND upload it for  you! Alas, all in …

Well, in my continuing effort to make small changes every day to get more organized, I once again turn to Martha. Turns out she actually has a …

Martha Stewart’s Calender

If you know me, you know I’m not Martha Stewart Jr. In fact, I always describe my husband by saying, “He’s like Martha Stewart and Bob Vila rolled up into a male body!”; his knack for design, entertaining, decorating and fixing things is beyond impressive…and is a gene that was totally lost on me! However, when I had the opportunity …
