What I'm Loving Lately

Hello World!  I thought I would show you what I've been loving lately.  Since organizing and finding space has been at the forefront of my mind, Martha Stewart has come to the rescue with her 9 Cube Organizer.  I've had to create storage solutions for the playroom and my office.  Here's what I have so far.
Above and below is one side of the playroom.  We bought two 9 Cube Organizers for Little Dedicated's toys.


Above, here is one that I have in my messy, messy office.  It's slowly coming together.  

These are super easy to put together and can easily be stacked.  I have another unit that I purchased for the office that I need to put together and stack on top of one of the single units.  Currently, I have 3 units for the office.  Hopefully, as I unpack the crafts, I won't need any more units.  We'll see.  

My next love are these beige canvas boxes I picked up from Target the other day.  They are perfect for Little Dedicated's toys to have a nice spot to go when not in action.  Keeps them organized and keeps Mommy happy.  


They fit perfectly in the Cube Organizer. 

This one if full of Valentine's bags and little favors for parties. 


Another new love is my DYMO Labeler that I picked up from Target.  I must say that I have been on a labeling spree.     
Here are some of the little projects that I've used the DYMO on. I labeled all of Little Dedicated's boxes so that at the end of the evening when she is cleaning up the playroom, she knows which box to put her toys into.  


Next up, I decided it was time I created a Coupon Notebook instead of just keeping them in a pile on my desk.  I've had the notebook forever and the pocket dividers I discovered in a box that I recently unpacked.  So, I got busy organizing and labeling the pockets.  And, yes, I have a ton of Bed Bath & Beyond coupons.  The particular store I go to honors BBB coupons even if they are past the expiration date.  




I also store the takeout menus here as well.  So, if Mr. Dedicated is heading to Lowe's, Home Depot, or Best Buy, he pops into my office and checks the Coupon Notebook for coupons for his little shopping spree. 

Another love is my pretty little Kuzy shell for my MacBook Pro.  Before, I had a clear shell on it which worked well, but I was itching for a little color.  Head to Kuzy to check out more colors. 
Isn't it pretty?

Since Little Dedicated got new school clothes and school supplies, I bought myself some new pens.  Inexpensive, but fun and festive.  Paper Mate Flair in 16 happy colors.  I love felt pens with a medium point.  

And, one more.  I'm in love with the shape of this.  How elegant this would look against dark wood or black.  

These are just a few things I'm crushing on.  Thank you for popping in to take a look at my loves.  I don't enjoy the unpacking, but I really get a kick out of organizing it all. 

Glad you could pop in for a visit.  Click the links below to check out any posts you may have missed.


Have a beautiful day and remember to be kind to one another!  Joy to the Full!
