My Home Office and a Giveaway!

As many of you know, I work from home. What you might not know is that my "office" is in the front of the house visible for everyone. There is no closing the door on the mess that is my office, and it is always accessible and used heavily by the boys. While it's not always in perfect condition it does need to be somewhat presentable.

One of my bigger problems right now is enough desktop space. The boys like to do homework on the desk but if I have my calendar, a couple bills, and my camera on the desk it seems that there is zero space left. I was SO excited to put up and try out the Wall Manager from Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery, available exclusively from Staples. I actually already use and love some of the Martha Stewart Home Office products in the office and even sometimes in my scrapbooking so I knew I would love the brand.

I'm usually begging Mr. All for the Boys to hang things up for me so they are perfected to his liking (I'm more of a hang it up and eye it sort of person). The way this wall organizer is made is SO smart.

To hang there is a backing with a small amount of adhesive. Use the built in level to get it straight on the wall. The adhesive keeps it in place and you hammer in with included micro nails. SO easy and so awesome. To place multiple squares together you use the alignment marks on each to place them in just the right spot. I can't tell you how excited I was about this feature. I hung them up perfectly completely by myself.

Since I don't have a ton of wall space I chose to keep them to the left of me in a row using different accessories to meet my immediate needs. What's cool is I can change it up whenever I need to!

To the right of where I sit I incorporated the cork board into my little wall gallery. I LOVE getting some of this stuff up on the wall and off the desk, creating a ton more desk space for me and the boys.

The Wall Manager comes in white or black to fit any room. I think this would be perfect for above the boys' desks in their rooms whenever I get around to getting them! Room desks tend to be smaller and this would definitely help!

We are Thankful: Family Art Project

I first saw this idea from Becky Higgins last year. I loved it and new I wanted to do it this year.

It's a poster where we are going to write and/or draw things that we are thankful each day in November leading up to Thanksgiving.

My friend Jaime from Three Paper Peonies (a digital scrapbooking design company) posted this on her blog and I had to share it here. She broke the glass out of an IKEA frame and instead of throwing the frame away decided to use it as a 3D Lego art display - displaying whatever latest creation her little guy makes. 

SUCH a good idea Jaime! I'm definitely going to be incorporating some version of this onto our walls!
