This morning I fed Kole and propped him up on the couch while I fixed breakfast for the girls. I told Ellie to keep an eye on him. Five minutes later I went to pick him up and found this…
Last week I mentioned being in a funk and going on an organizing rampage. Since my mom was here to help with the kids I was able to get so much done! (thanks mom!) Here are some of the before and after pics.
Then I organized all of their drawers. One for ballet clothes/shoes, one for summer nightgowns, one for swimsuits, etc.
I got rid of A LOT of books. We had too many and there were quite a few the girls weren’t reading anymore.
Love it! Now we have room for new books. I put all of the leveled books for Ellie to read this summer on the bottom shelf (along with a few for Kole) and then just straightened the rest.
So instead of using the ‘Random Integer Generator’ to pick a winner, I decided to do things the old fashioned way. I wrote all of your names down on slips of paper and had Ellie draw a winner. We did a drum roll and everything. It was just more fun that way. :)
The winner of Jessica’s “Don’t Blink: Scrapbooking Your Baby’s First Year” class is –

Jessica Turner contacted me and asked if I was interested in doing a giveaway on my blog. Fun! This is my first. :) Her timing was perfect because I had just been thinking about how this fall when my girls go back to school I need to make Kole’s baby book a priority. If I don’t make it happen while he is still a baby, chances are it won’t happen at all! Jessica is offering 20% off of her self paced class called “Don’t Blink: Scrapbooking Your Baby’s First Year.” I’m excited to take her class and get some new ideas and a little motivation to do Kole’s book. Who knows…maybe I’ll get motivated to do Addison’s too. That would be my four year old. Nice.
Finding time to scrapbook amidst milestones and diaper changes can be a challenge, but it is possible! In the self-paced class Don’t Blink: Scrapbooking Your Baby’s First Year, you will receive tips, tricks and inspiration to complete your baby’s first year album – while he or she is still a baby. And don’t despair, if your baby is walking and talking, Don’t Blink will still inspire you to complete his album before he graduates high school.
As a new mommy who works full-time, writes The Mom Creative blog and loves to scrapbook, Jessica Turner’s life is a constant juggling act. After not finding any baby scrapbooking resources she loved and with a commitment to completing her son’s first year album while he was still a baby, she developed Don’t Blink: Scrapbooking Your Baby’s First Year.
After taking Don’t Blink, you will be inspired to create dozens of layouts for your baby’s scrapbook. Instead of feeling overwhelmed by the amount of pictures you have taken and the layouts you could make, you will have the tools needed to create a scrapbook that will be cherished for generations by your child. AND, you will be able to get it done during naptimes, at night and whenever else you can squeeze in fifteen to thirty minutes to scrapbook!
