After all of the holidays are over, I am always wanting to clean and organize. With the new Christmas toys and hosting holiday parties, my house is a mess. I have rounded up Home Organization Ideas for almost every room in your home. Which room will you be organizing first? I think I will start with the kitchen.

If you have been following along with us on Instagram, you might have noticed that we totally redid our family room this summer. This is a project we have been wanting to do since the day we moved into our home over 12 years ago. The job was going to be a big one, so it kept getting put on the bottom of the to do list. I am so happy to have it almost finished.
Recycled Pallets are very popular. I believe they are so popular because pallets can be very inexpensive and there are so many uses and projects that can be made from them. In today’s Recycled Pallet Project Ideas post I am going to show you some creative Pallet Projects and Ideas to inspire you to create your next pallet project.
I love Christmas and all that comes with it…but when Christmas is over, I usually have an overwhelming urge to put away all the Christmas Decor and reclaim my house. This year was no exception and I had it all taken down and put away on New Year’s Eve. I promised myself that this year was the year I would finally organize all of it and go through every last bit and donate everything I wasn’t going to use again.

It’s time to decorate the halls with all your Christmas Decor. Have you gotten yours up yet? Traditionally we put ours up the day after Thanksgiving! It is mostly finished with just a few things left to do, but I always like to be inspired to add some new and different touches every year to change things up…because I like change…if you haven’t noticed.
I just got back from a quick trip to North Carolina on behalf of Lowes. As part of the Lowes Creative Bloggers, we were invited out to tour the Lowes Headquarters and meet the entire team we have been working with over the past few years. I feel so blessed to be a part of this fun group and to work so closely with Lowes.
Looking for a last minute Christmas gift idea or some Christmas Décor? I have one for you that you can literally put together in just a few minutes…Santa’s Key.
Have you heard of Santa’s Magic Key? The legend states that any old key, with Santa’s Magic, can open any door. This allows Santa to get into homes who do not have a chimney or a fireplace.
Hang the key on a door handle or display it in your home and Santa will be sure to find his way to deliver his gifts. This is not a new idea, I just wanted to put my own twist on it. I thought it would be nice to be able to display the key on our Christmas mantle.
I simply took an old scrap of wood left over from this North Pole Crate I shared with you earlier, and cut it so that it fit the poem. Then I sanded the wood down on the sides and the top and bottom so that it didn’t have any rough edges.
Then I mod-podged the Santa’s Key Poem onto the wood block with a matte Mod Podge. Wrap a pretty ribbon around the block with the key attached and tie it in a bow to hold it in place. You can find keys at your craft store or you can find them here on Amazon…skeleton key.
Or hang it from a door knob to display it in your home. You can also just attach the poem and the Santa’s Magic Key tag and set it in a prominent area in your home.
I think any young child or family would enjoy getting this unique gift. And…it is something that can be given really inexpensively.
I couldn’t find the original source of the poem I used, and would love to link back to them if any of you know where I can find it. I would love to give credit where it is due.
If you would like to download the poem and/or the Santa’s Key tag you can click on the link below. If you are having trouble downloading it, you may need to be on a non-mobile device.
As always, I love to hear when you use on my these ideas. I would love to see or hear about them. Six more sleeps ‘till Christmas!
ONE WEEK…Seven more sleeps till the man in the red suit will come delivering Christmas goodness. Can you even believe it? Every year on Christmas Eve the kids make sure we leave cookies for Santa.
I have been obsessed with these wood tree slabs the last few months. Have you seen them around? I snagged me a couple from Michael’s a while ago and have been mulling around different ways to use them. I ultimately, decided to paint one of them with some black chalkboard paint.
I simply took the blank tree slab and then painted two layers of chalkboard paint on them. You can pick up chalkboard paint at your craft stores or Lowes.
I also have a recipe for making your own Chalkboard Paint if you want to make your own.
Then I simply cut out some white vinyl the words “Cookies for Santa” and then attached it to the chalkboard slab. Why not write on the chalkboard with chalk?
Well…I tried that…and my handwriting was bugging me. So I opted for the prettier version.
You can then either keep the vinyl on, or remove it and then use your chalkboard slab…well…as a chalkboard. Keep it in the kitchen and leave sweet messages for family members or turn it in to a daily menu or a grocery list! So many fun uses for it!
I just love how fun and unique it is instead of just a plate of cookies. And…wouldn’t this be such a fun and unique gift for neighbors, friends and or family? I LOVE it! I am going to be making more for sure!
Santa for sure will enjoy taking a little snack break after delivering his presents at your house. If you are interested in trying my favorite Sugar Cookie Recipe, which are pictured above, you can find that recipe here.
And…because I was so busy…I just used a store bought icing. Yep! It’s been that kind of a week, and I am totally okay with that.
One more thing…does Santa wrap your gifts or just leave them under the tree? At our house they are left under the tree unwrapped.
