From indigo dyed to hand drawn, I’ve rounded up a variety of beautifully designed eggs that you may just want to try yourself.

Round-up :: DIY Message Boards

Having difficulty juggling appointments, activities and homework schedules for your family? As my kids have gotten older, I’ve found that it’s more and more challenging to kept it all straight. A message board in our kitchen nook has helped us tremendously. If you are are need of a command center, I’ve rounded up a few DIY message board options that you may want to consider.

Love this sleek, colorful dry-erase message board via BHG. It’s made from a piece of glass that’s simply been painted on the back and framed. Love!

This DIY magnetic board from 4 Men and 1 Lady, is made of a 26 gauge galvanized steel sheet and then framed.  It also doubles as a dry erase board for quick messages. Would love great in a kitchen, mudroom or playroom.

The folks at Martha Stewart created this chic message center using a store-bought cork board that was painted and upgraded with a brass rod to hold mail and hooks to hold keys. Love the many functions it provides!

Although this option isn’t as versatile as the others, I love the simplicity. The could be a fun DIY project or purchased through George & Willy.

happy organizing,

The Bloom Workshop California

The Bloom Workshop // Northern California 2015The Bloom Workshop discount code

Do you remember my Michaela who interned for me a few years ago? Her grandmother always told her to dream big and dream she did. Last year, Michaela and her friend Ashley launched The Bloom Workshop. And not surprisingly it’s been a huge success! The hands-on workshop was designed for creative women who are eager to learn about blogging, social media, photography, interior design and styling. Our goal is to share our knowledge on how each of these topics work together to help take blogs or businesses to the next level. Bloom’s mission is to help fuel women’s creative passions, establish authentic community, and help each attendee feel confident in their small business or blog. With special sessions on the specifics of blogging, social media best practices, design, styling and photography, a styled photo shoot to practice the skills guests just learned, and a Q&A session with a panel of experts this is a great opportunity for all eager to learn, network and hone creative skills.
