I have used Loveable Labels for a while and they are a perfect stocking stuffer! I’ve been using them for my daughter’s stuff and now that they have streamline labels, that fit on small things, I just sent her to school with her chapstick labeled.  As winter approaches, you will want to label all of their winter items.   Loveable Labels makes it so easy to label coats, boots and back packs and lunch boxes, that can all look so similar.  It is an easy way for your kids to keep up with their stuff at school and maybe fewer trips to the lost and found pile! Below is a link to the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale and all the codes you need to get a discount.  Happy Shopping!

Only took 1 week to Clean Out my Make Up! August 6, 2012

Is your makeup drawer overflowing? Do you have stuff all over your bathroom countertop? Does it take you forever to get ready in the morning? 

I can fix it in just 1 week!  Some of you know that I’ve taken a temporary full-time job as a Marketing/PR person for The Kansas Speedway and let me tell you the transition from SAHM for 7 years to full-time working Mom was so #@$&()% difficult!  Not because of the Mommy guilt (since I know it’s only for 90 days), but having to get the kids ready and myself ready and not in sweat pants! 

I had to streamline my morning make up process and the first step is getting rid of what I didn’t need.  I am not one to take a whole weekend to clean out clutter, so here’s what I did.  I dumped (yes dumped) all my make up in a large plastic bag.Image  As I got ready each morning, I would take out what I needed and put it in my make up organizer.  I am also cheap, so I didn’t spend a ton of money on a fancy organizer, I got a desk organizer from the dollar store.  At the end of the week, I was left with what I was actually using on my face.  What was left in the plastic bag, I hadn’t used all week and honestly hadn’t used in months!  I tossed it, well, some of it I put in my daughter’s room to use for dress up. 

I can’t tell you how much easier it has made my morning make up routine, to only see what I’m actually using.  See the photos, feel free to comment and share! :0)

DIY Valentine Cards <3 February 11, 2012

Filed under: Organization — Mikita Burton AKA Never Home SAHM @ 12:53 AM

As we stood in the store for 15 minutes, while she (the 1st grader) looked at the hundreds of Valentine’s cards and candies and her brother (the almost 2 year old) knocked everything off the self…she couldn’t decide what to take to her class.  Just like so many Moms before me, I grabbed the little boy, told the girl we were leaving and appologized to the poor CVS cashier who now had to pick up everything, we left the store!!!

I left out of frustration, but on the way home I thought about why I didn’t want to spend $3.99 for a box of Valentine cards that will be thrown away.  I decided, we would make our own and buy a bag of suckers (because most kids just want the candy) and attach our homemade cards.

We played around with a stamp pad, she made hearts with her finger prints, we made “be mine bee’s” with her thumb and they were all cute, but looked really home made…well cheap!

Guess what? My girl is just as pretty as any Disney princess, so we snapped a pic and I discovered an app that you can add word bubbles and draw on your photos!! (www.picsay.com)  We created a custume (not cheap looking) Valentine card for her school friends, I found a great coupon to make digital prints for $.15 cents at the same CVS we previously destroyed!!!

School Valentines – DONE!
