Color Confident

There are few people who truly know the lack of limits associated with the organization of my closet.  My husband, my sister, and my sister (in-law) are the only three people I have let delve deeply into the recesses of my minor obsession.

My sister-in-law made the unfortunate mistake of calling me last minute to come over.  And since I couldn't care less that my house has about 327 unfolded laundry items strewn haphazardly about my living room as I attempt to organize as I fold, I said COME ON OVER!!  I can always use a friend to hold a hanger or two for me.

She came over with coffee in hand, iced no less because she not only knows me so well, but also because she knows that when I actually do work, my sweat glands also do work.  What can I say iced is always best and I rarely order coffee hot.  (Disclaimer: Shopping is also "work" in my book, which is why that crazed looking Starbucks employee who gave me an iced caramel macchiato when it was snowing outside can eat it.)

Now, after having sucked that puppy down, I have the strange ability to fold, smile, and share ALL OF MY insane closet secrets.  Sadly, I'm not kidding.  You can ask her.  She laughed a lot with a couple of eye rolls mixed in, so I'm not sure if I truly demonstrated how devoted I was to having organized closets.

What can you do then, but take her to the source?  What a lucky woman to see the source of the madness, from color-coded hangers, right down to segregated types of clothes (tank tops, tank top style dresses, t-shirts, t-shirt style dresses, long sleeve shirts, long sleeve fancy, vests, hoodies, and coats).  And yes those are *some* of my sections for Grapenut's closet, I'm sure you don't want even more detail about how I organize what doesn't get hung up.

Long story short, I also organize those sections into color.  And don't even bother to ask about different shades, and fading into the next color, because I have it all taken care of and accounted for.  And if all else fails, we abide by the color scheme of a rainbow.

Yeah, it drives me nuts when my husband doesn't abide by the closet hanging rules. Yeah, I have a problem.  Yeah, I love color-coded closets.

And yeah, my own closet brings OCD to an entirely new level.

Free downloads and free photo printing at Walgreens... can't beat that!

By now, the blog world has been littered with the free offers that Walgreens has offered.  They probably expire soon, so jump on it while you can! 

And I thought I'd offer some free printables I made.  Yeah, based off of ones I found on pinterest, I made my own. Feel free to download, print, etc.

Here's one for a little fun... and because I LOVE me some cupcakes!

And this one is because I've been trying to incorporate teal and orange in the same room, but it's hard when you have hardly any orange items in your house.

The codes for the 2 free 8x10s are FREEONE and 1PRINT. Also, you will have to make 2 separate orders as they only allow one of these codes per order.  Good luck and have fun!

My little diva

Yeah, I definitely go the extra mile when dressing my kids.  You don't(?!?!) match your kids' outfits to their carseats?


I usually don't either, but thought she looked especially cute.  On a typical day, her hair is falling in her eyes, her bow is crumpled on the ground, the glasses are being thrown around the backseat, and I realize halfway to my destination that her outfit doesn't actually match.

But today was a wild exception, right down to the accessories.  I was just so proud of my accomplishment I had to have proof, and share that proof, and brag about that proof.

I do think it is hard to dress little girls though.  There are only about 529 different shades of pink out there, and my brain has decided that none of them go together well so I pretend they're all the same shade.

I realize it is probably a problem related only to me and my complete lack of style, but hey, I can still turn out a cute outfit once in awhile!
