Kid Organization Wall (and Things to Come)

Yesterday I showed you the new task board for my boys.  Today I'll show you where I put it.  


I had three frames that I wasn't using anymore, so I sprayed them all gray.  



I hung the task board at the bottom so the boys could reach it.  I took a picture of them for the middle frame.  


Sidenote: Do you know how inexpensive prints are at Costco?  Wow.  $2.99 for a 12"x12" which is about 6 or 7 times more expensive at a normal photo store.  I love that place.


I designed some art based on one of my favorite children's songs at church.  Baden pumps his little fist in the air when he sings this song and I LOVE it.  The first few lines are exactly what I want to teach my boys.  "Dare to do right.  Dare to be true.  You have a work that no other can do."  I didn't make the print in other colors, but if you want the file in these colors I'm happy to email it to you.


It's the wall they see on the way down the stairs, so I figured it was a good place for all of it.  It's also where they put their dirty laundry.


It's the first thing I see when I walk out of our bedroom, which makes me happy.


And I thought I'd tell you what's in the future here on the blog.  June we'll have hair week again.  I have some great guests lined up.  In June and July you'll see me decorate our bedroom - which I've never really shown here.  There will be fun projects and with befores and afters.

I'm also toying with some other ideas.  Would you be interested in a curtains week - full of different, easy types of DIY curtains?  How about learning activities for your kids?  (Whether or not I blog about that, it's something I will be doing a lot of in these summer months.)  I'd love to throw in some boy sewing projects as well.  Whew!  Lots to squeeze in!  Let me know what you're interested in.

Thanks for stopping by.

  4. I have an idea each summer but will never get around to it. Maybe some building/sorting/project fun with the kids using clean containers from Costco. You know the neat tubs the pies come in, and the boxes from the chips bags-thrifty and green fun with stuff you always buy! You always have great ideas for things!

  9. I like all the ideas you suggested, I always like to see different curtain ideas (have you ever visited the Nester, she's all about curtains). Boy sewing, yes, you haven't done that in a while. And alas, no Costco for 40 miles. You'd never believe I live in the 3rd largest city of PA, must move. Bring it on!!

  10. CURTAINS! Holy cow, it would be an answer to a prayer if you were to do DIY curtains! I'm in desperate need, and don't know my bum from a mound in the grass. :-*

  11. LOVE! I can't wait for June and all of your tutorials. How about a re-organizing tute...like using different (unexpected things) for storage, etc? My sewing/craft room DESPERATELY needs HELP! It's a TINY TINY space 7x10 and it's really hard to get things organized (without taking up every inch of floor space I have!)

  12. I would love some curtain tutorials! I have some fabric to make some curtains but just have a mental block as to what to do next!

  13. Definitely learning activities for kids! I'm going to be working hard this summer on teaching my son to recognize all the letters and sounds of the alphabet, since he didn't catch on so great in preschool and I want him ready for kindergarten.

    I'd love to learn about curtain making, as well. Keep it coming! Thanks!

  14. I can't wait for hair week. New mom=boring ponytail or hair being grabbed. :) And curtain week would be fantastical! I have the old granny sheers/tracked curtains and they are super ugly (and in bad colors), so any ideas are super welcome! And I'm quickly learning how awesome costco photo is too! I need to get some big prints made as well.

  18. I'd love to know what your typical day is like -- how do you keep the chaos at a minimum? I know when taking pictures, sometimes stuff is swept to the side, but your home always looks so neat & tidy! What responsibilities do you give your little men, etc?

  22. Love Costco photos! Way overdue for some enlargements with both kids....maybe before my baby turns 1 in July:(
    I was waiting to see your task board wall bec I am planning to make one soon with an old white/magnet board I have and was happy to see this morning that you did yours in essentially the same spot I have my eye on! I have plans for our tiny landing upstairs:). I also have plans to make growth charts from yardsticks and hang them in between doors where there's just enough room for that and nothing else! Thank you for getting me excited to actually complete a project;)
    I would be excited to see some learning activities!

  29. This is so cute. Art is always better in threes.

    Random question - How do you store all of your photos? I have a blogger account and I am worried that I will run out of space. If I delete the photos from picasa, it deletes it from my blog and leave a big black box. Do you have this issue? How do you get around storage issues? Thanks!
