(My almost 2-year-old ripped these papers down many times, so I then slipped them inside a plastic page protector so they would somewhat withstand the hands of a toddler. He still rips them down occasionally but the protectors have kept me from having to reprint new ones!!)

I am artistically challenged, but I was able to create this zebra-print design on my nails in a couple of minutes!!! I used the quick-dry polish as a base coat (Sally Hansen), then free-handed the zebra lines. I immediately had to purchase a set of these nail art pens!

So I decided I would keep 1) the bottles I wear most and 2) whatever would fit into this handy makeup caddy. I grouped them by brand instead of color, just because that's how they are at the store and they fit better into the compartments that way.
I ordered this caddy through Mary Kay for a mere $7 (available to order by Mary Kay beauty consultants only). However, there are similar ones available here and here.

So.....I took 2 1/2 hours of my Sunday afternoon when my little guy was napping and my husband was doing some outside chores. I tackled a few areas of my kitchen. I knew if I tried to organize the entire kitchen, it would be too much to handle in that small amount of time. Here are some before/during/after pics!!
The Microwave Counter and Junk Drawer!

Then it hit me. Go back to Macy's to the JUNIORS department!!!! Of course!!! So on the way out, we stopped there, and wooohooooo!!!!! I found fabulous stuff!! I'm 34 years old, so I usually feel embarrassed shopping in that area, but the clothes are so much more fabulous! Well, maybe the quality isn't, but they cost less, they're much more stylish, and they fit me better too!
In addition to the ladies department at Macy's, I've also been very disappointed lately with Gap, Old Navy, and even Kohl's (although they're a little better), places I used to shop at very regularly. They're too preppy, boring, and plain Jane. However, I'm very happy with Express, where I used to shop all the time in my early 20s. They have kept with a stylish, age-appropriate, and even sparkly selection of items that I love!

This year, I have carried over my resolution from last year....to get organized!!!! 2011 was the year of the purge for our family, as we renovated our basement into a fabulous play room/living room. We trashed, donated and recycled so much "stuff" that our unfinished portion of our basement is now flooded with empty bins!!!
Over the next few weeks, I am going to post pictures of the other areas in our house that I have attempted to get a handle on in terms of organizing. Jim has been a huge help, as there is no way I could do it alone!
Here is my checklist of what areas are done, in process or not even attempted. I tend to be a cluttery person, so these tasks are often overwhelming and time consuming for me. I do what I can do in the small amount of time I have!!
(Pictures will be up soon!!!)
