Glitter Spider Webs + Spooky Shelves

September 27th, 2012

I like to spookify a section of our house every year while the kids are at school, they love the surprise when they come home.  One year I painted a ghost on the mirror above the mantel, and another year I made glowing eyes Halloween art.

This year I decided that while they were away, big black spiders would invade the family room bookcases, and bring some feathered friends.  Since I painted the built ins white this year, they were the perfect candidate for some black and white Halloween fun.

The glittery spider webs were a DIY project and I used craft supplies from Martha Stewart’s collection to create them.

Five Busy Blogger Tools

September 26th, 2012

I have days where I’m coasting along getting a ton of work done then I have days like today where the day totally gets away from me and I’m frustrated I didn’t finish as much as I wanted.  Such is life.  Some days you accomplish much, other days, you’ve got to close up shop, relax on the couch, recharge, and tell yourself in the words of Scarlett O’Hara, “Tomorrow is another day.”   Since I didn’t get much done today beyond the morning dishes and responding to a few emails, I thought it the perfect time to answer a FAQ I get a lot: “How do you manage to do so much?”  Oh the irony! 

Here are the five tools this full time momma blogger relies upon most for time management, organization, and all that jazz.   

1. The “Mom Binder”:   I make one of these every year, it’s often called a Command Central binder, but it’s the one that’s filled with the school calendar, PTA information, homework policies, contact list, and sports schedules.  I store it in the family room computer armoire when I need to look something up!
