NEW Halloween Printables in my Etsy Shop!!

Ain't no shame in my game! I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Halloween. It's like my Christmas. I love all the Halloween things (169 pins and counting)!!!! 

I love to try and watch a scary movie, only to puss out. I love all the candy and I love dressing up. Now I have kids and I can dress them up too. I have almost as many Halloween decorations as I do Christmas. 

So I decided that I should spread my anal retentive, OCD-ness to the bestest holiday there is. I designed these printables to help take the stress and worry out of Halloween and b/c I am an organizational freak. We all knew that, yes? Good. 

Let's take a look at the new printables, shall we? 

This calendar will help you stay on top of all the Halloweenie things - decorations, candy, costumes. 

This checklist allows you to see what decorations you have and where they are stored.

These labels work together with the inventory list to know what box contains what decorations. The labels are formatted to print on Avery US Labels 6578

This two page party planner has everything you need to throw on hell of a Halloween party.

This expanded guest list helps you track who is coming and what they are bringing.

This planner helps you know what food will be served at the party.

To help you stay on budget -a planner to track food and drink costs.

For all the great recipes you want to try, a planner with three per sheet. 

Hop on over to my Etsy Shop to get this pack for yourself.

Despite what my drunk ass thought last week, this Friday is actually the first Friday of Fall.

It is my favorite season of all time and only partly b/c it contains my super, duper, most favoritest holiday ever - Halloween. Fall is the time you can snuggle inside with some hot apple cider but also enjoy the crisp air.
Since there are so many things to do and eat and craft and drink, I decided to make this Fall Planner. It's a great way to track everything you want to do. It has a Fall Bucket List, space for parties you want to host or attend, decorations you want, recipes you want to try, activities to do and crafts to make. Everything is all in one spot.

Download your free Fall Printable here!
And as a way to track what new fall recipes you want to try out, I have made some recipe cards for you. Just print and fill out!


But remember; if you say 'pumpkin spice latte' three times in a mirror, a white girl in yoga pants will appear and tell you all the things she loves about fall.

You've been warned.

Make-up Organization: Take Two!

Awhile ago, I talked about how I organize my make-up. Taking one look at the original, you would know that eventually it would turn into a mess. And it did. I mean, just look at this shit.

I must have been smoking some good stuff that week to think the drawer would stay neat and organized.

I said at the time that organizers would be the best bet to keep everything contained and corralled. I was right. However, instead of buying a tray at the store, I decided to upcycle some boxes around the house and make trays.

All of the boxes were cereal boxes, a few tea boxes and I think one granola bar box. Like any good mom, I feed my kids the sugary cereal in the mornings, so in no time, I had enough boxes to fill the drawer. I just wrapped them in pretty scrapbook paper once I cut them to fit the height of the drawer.

And then I filled them all in. 

There were some places where the boxes created holes but I was able to fill these with little things like bobby pins and my extra contact case or rubber bands for The Good Daughter.

If you are new to the blog, know that my number #2 organization tip is to group things with similar functions together to save time and create functionality. This is a great example. 

So all of my lip stuff goes in one box, sandwiched between eye make-up and deodorant.

Contacts and foundations are in the first box followed by my brushes and moisturizer and make-up setting spray followed by my contact cleaners and disposable contacts.

Bronzer and pressed powder in another box.

Samples and rarely used items are all the way in the back.

I makes me so happy to open my drawer in the morning and have everything in a spot I can find. It even motivates me to wear most of the stuff.

So the next time you need to organize something, ask yourself if you have something on hand like cereal boxes you could use instead of buying something new. It will make you feel like a dirty hippy to upcycle. But you wont' smell like patchouli, I promise.
