I couldn't let today go by without baking some chocolate cream cheese cupcakes with the girls for #NATIONALCHOCOLATECUPCAKEDAY 🍫🍰 (why do I not have a cupcake emoji?!)
Crossing things off my to-do list for the #oneroomchallenge! [AD] I'm staying organized with these awesome plastic folders from @stemsfxsupplies...the colorful folders are durable and have 2 pockets and a spot for brochures and business cards...paint sample cards fit perfect in them FYI πŸ˜‰ You can get the folders by clicking the link below, and I'll have a clickable link in my profile for a few hours too. #workcolorfully πŸ’™Copy/paste link to purchase: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01GDJISTG/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_sc35zbYEPG63J

This is pretty much the extent of our #falldecorations this year. I used to go all out with my #seasonaldecor but having kids has really made me simplify my approach. I wish I had more energy, but tiny humans are a lot of work! The girls love the little glitter jack-O-lanterns πŸŽƒ and really, when kids are small the seasonal decor is for them anyway, right? (Ok, it's for me too). πŸŽƒπŸŽƒπŸŽƒ
What a week it's been! Sick kids are not fun (especially when it's a bad stomach bug 😜). I don't have much to update on my #oneroomchallenge but I do have a Project Checklist Printable for you! You can print it out at www.thedottednest.com 
Here's to hoping this week is better than last, and I can get caught up on my to-do list. How's your Monday going so far?? πŸ’—
It's that time again! #oneroomchallenge This time around I'm tackling the office - it's getting turned into a Kid Friendly Office/School Room. I have very artistic little girls - they love to paint and draw pictures, and they need a dedicated art corner. Hop on over to www.thedottednest.com (link in bio) to read more about it! You can also check out the other guest participants' rooms by visiting @oneroomchallenge @housebeautiful πŸ’—
Ever have one of those afternoons/days/weeks/months where it feels like everything you're trying to do fails? Well, the secret sauce to finding your failures sweet is that they are, in fact, the best part! Keep on trying my friends - let your failures be the motivators! Yep - another Anne of Green Gables quote. Isn't this one great? πŸ’— "Next to trying and winning, the best thing is trying and failing" (Printable is live on the blog! www.thedottednest.com)
I love seeing photos of my artwork in your homes! 🏑 This photo of my #anneofgreengables October quote is from @yrachele πŸ’— I can't believe it's already September 28th and October is just around the corner! Where did September go?! Hop on over to www.thedottednest.com (I'll have the direct link up in my profile for a few days) so you can print this out to put in your home. Make sure to tag me if you do so I can see it! πŸŽƒπŸ‚πŸ
Happy 1st Day of Fall ya'll! πŸ‚πŸπŸŒΎπŸ‚ #candycorn 🌽 for the win! πŸ’›πŸŽƒ This is sadly the extent of my Fall decor at the moment...I've been too focused on other projects and school and, well, just life! Fall has always been my favorite season to decorate for (other than Christmas of course!), so hopefully this weekend I can get with it! πŸπŸŽƒ Do you decorate for Fall?? πŸ‚πŸŒΎ
My current life situation... But for reals, what a week! The 2 year old is going to do me in. Send me coffee!! πŸ–

The cutest little vintage bike you ever did see! πŸ’œπŸ’—πŸ’šπŸš² Madalyn is finally "big" enough to actually ride her bike to the park. She was given this bike for her 2nd birthday (from her great uncle - he restored it and when he bought it the bike was rusty and looked nothing like this!) She's been waiting and waiting for the day she could ride her bike to the park! Next life goal: ride without the training wheels! #firstbike #vintagebikes
May we never forget, but always remember β€οΈπŸ’™πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ #september11 #neverforget
β€οΈπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ Planning for the week ahead! [AD] Since we're in the middle of a major remodel project in the office/school room, I currently have school stuff floating all over the house. πŸ™ˆ These String and Button Poly Envelopes from @stemsfxsupplies have been a lifesaver in helping to keep things organized. The poly envelopes are pretty heavy duty, and the legal size (the size in my pic) have a lot of space and can even fit books in them to keep things really neat and tidy and put together! You can get your own at the link below. πŸ‘‡
