The Cottage

I have some new clients that I am pretty darn excited about.  We are new friends and have known each other for about a year.  But this is first time that we have worked on any organizing together.  They recently had the ability to travel abroad for an extended period of time and upon returning to their home they realized it was time to make some changes.  When you live out of a backpack and barely have any of your possessions with you for an extended period of time it ...continue reading

Things were getting lost in the back of the pantry and although she was still having a hard time getting all the spaces to work right for her kitchen. Unfortunately I don't have a before ...continue reading

Back in August we decided to update our laundry room/storage area and turn it into a functional office space for the Mister and a much more comfortable laundry room for myself.  This area is accessed by going out of our house into our carport and then there is a little room off the carport.  It's been cold and ugly and dirty...not exactly the place you'd like to be doing laundry or working, right? Here is a little reminder of what we did to the room in August. And here ...continue reading
