Thoughts on COVID-19 and Staying Home

It's awful. This virus is spreading so quickly and easily. It's definitely terrifying to watch the economy collapse and small businesses struggle. I'm one of those small businesses. I was able to go full time in my business back in October 2019, and it's been absolutely amazing having everyone support the products I've designed. I know we're all struggling financially now, and as much as I'd love sales, I'd rather offer some ideas for what you can do to keep yourself sane and feeling accomplished while you're at home. BUST OUT THAT DUSTY DO TO LISTYou know, all the things you've wanted to do, but haven't had time for: reading, baths, organizing your closet, organizing the garage, going through the...

Spice Jar Organization

My friends know me as the organized one. I love systems, I love order, and I love when things WORK and look great at the same time. Whenever a friend moves into a new place, or wants to re-do their kitchen - they call me. I've recommended a few products that I think are really great to a few different people now, so I thought I'd share here as well! Kitchen organization is so tough because really, unless it was custom designed around how YOU cook and use it, there’s always going to be something weird. I used to keep my spices in a narrow cupboard next to the stove – now, no more overhead storage there so that’s out. Then I...

Custom Wedding Favor Ideas

Earlier this summer, I had the pleasure of working with Abby of AE Creative to create a custom seating chart and favor combination. We met a few times to narrow down what would be the perfect fit for her bride and groom. We came up with personalized keychains to use as a seating chart, and then for the guests to take with them as their unique favor. Wedding favors are something that a lot of thought goes into, as the bride and groom want something that is memorable from their special day, but still useful (or consumable – food and drink are a very popular choice) for their guests.

Christmas! Presents! Decorating!

Every year I have this idealistic vision of how my presents will look under the tree, and then inevitably, as life goes, I run out of time and then rush through everything. Not this year! (Let's hope). I've been pinteresting pretty hard, and I have a general idea of what I want everything to look like. Are you on pinterest? https://www.pinterest.com/leemodesigns/merry-merry-everything/ Let's follow each other for great ideas!

Or perhaps ornaments as gifts? I have two available - one for first names, and one for family...

Chore Charts - What's the best way to put them to use?

You want your kids to start doing chores - now what? 1. Be reasonable - you're not going to be able to teach your kids new habits overnight, so start small. Start with a few key things, then add in others as they seem to grasp the whole process. 2. If they don't see you working through your "list", why should they? Don't forget - lots of kids learn by watching, so make sure you're leading by example. 3. Should you do a rewards system? Chores for allowance? Entirely up to you, but it may help to motivate them to want to learn the system more. 4. There should definitely be consequences for items that don't get done, but it doesn't need...
