Valentine Ideas

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

I never really care for the typically Valentine decor probably because I like to make most of my things.

Although I have tons of holiday decor I love creating new things. 
 This year, I found something that can be used all year long. I wasn't sure how I would use it. 
I decided to use it in a tablescape.
So I started with a little color 

...and a little LOVE!

Office Organization

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

The new year has arrived and I am in organizing mode. I have packed away all the holiday stuff and now I am wanting to purge and organize. It is funny how that works. The new year is always a cleansing of the old one.

Old Time Pottery has some pretty chic organizing items available. I found some pretty pink and black organizing cubes. Love the vibrant color. Hoping it will help inspire my creativity in 2016.

I started with a huge mess. I don't know how it happens. It gets crazy and things pile up.
 Can you relate?

Organizing doesn't have to be expensive. It really is more about having the time to go through everything. Sometimes that is the biggest chore and challenge.

I took everything off my shelves and I went through all the receipts and paperwork. Filed what I needed and began using square cubes to store things I really needed quickly.

I found some large boxes that matched the pattern. I also purchase a shoe organizer in the same print to store small items. I love that there was so much to choose from in the set.

I used chalkboard tape to label all the pockets and cubes. It really helps to have labels when you can't see through the fabric.

My favorite thing I found at Old Time Pottery was this Square Paris trunk. It added that little extra look to my space. Since I was just organizing and not redoing my whole office space, it made it look clean and fresh. It also makes for another great organizing tool.

I love the quick colorful redo. It always amazes me that I can always find what I need at Old Time Pottery to incorporate in my space that is cost effective and trendy. Now I need to work on the other parts of the room. I am really liking this so far. I think I will make another shopping trip!

It takes time but it is so worth it. Now I hope it can stay like this a little while!!

What are you organizing this year?
