August Co-Hosted Link Party!!!

Howdy-howdy and happy Labor Day!  Today I’m co-hosting a link party with Morgan over at Morganize With Me.  So get ready to showcase your favorite projects from this past month.  But before you link up (and please do so because your link will be shown on both blogs giving double the exposure!), I want to review a few of my own highlights from August.

AUGUST in REVIEW

August in Review

I started the month off with a few sniffles and tears when I shared my Goodbyes to Sweet Georgia & Friends as our family moved back to Florida – bitter sweet to say the least.

I revealed my new Colorful Command Center complete with How to {and how not to} Paint a Clipboard.  I also highlighted the Kiddie Section of my Command Center over at I’m an Organizing Junkie.

Speaking of my OrgJunkie contributions, I recently shared 10 Tips for Easy School Mornings, which was a real eye-opener for me as we began our school season.

As for back-to-school, I participated in an awesome Operation: Organization Series with the gals of 11 Magnolia Lane where I shared my Back to School Art Cart.

Since school was the theme, I shared a giant printable sale for back-to-school organization alongside some seriously talented bloggers.  Of course, there were more posts from August, but I think perusing those highlights should keep ya busy.  :)

Without further ado, let me share the details on your chance to link up something good!  See the description below and click the blue link button at the bottom to join.

Now it’s time for you to show us your August highlights! It’s your turn to shine! We’re looking for monthly link ups to include anything that fall within the two main categories – health and home. In what ways did you live with more intention last month? What did you create? How did you better organize? Where did you implement healthier changes?

Your link up can be organizational related, fitness focused, DIY, personal, recipes, fashion, parenting, faith, you name it! We look forward to seeing all that you’ve done and a few lucky links up will be featured as one of MWM’s top faves later this month.

Helping Organize Your School Mornings

Last week I mentioned I would soon be highlighting another one of my Command Center lists the next time I’m writing for I’m an Organizing Junkie (BTW, that “next time” is today).  HOWEVER, I changed my mind for two reasons.  One, I had something better to share.  And, two, the list is not my original idea.  Instead, I submitted 100% authentic work for Laura today and I’ll still explain the list in a post here at UBH (with the proper links and credit sources).

That said, you can follow THIS LINK to read about my 10 Tips for Easy School Mornings.  I originally wrote it to new school moms but that got left out of the title for business purposes. ;)

10 Tips to the New School Mom for Easy School Mornings

If you’re looking for a few suggestions to making school mornings a breeze, then read through and leave me your thoughts!  If everything you read seems familiar, then you must already have some awesomely organized mornings and you’re a school parent pro!  Either way I wish you a very happy, very easy back-to-school transition.

Organized Desk Inspiration for Back-to-School

Mornin’ y’all!  I’m working this weekend on stage 1 of my 3 planned stages for a functional & shared office space.  I’ll have many more details in a few weeks when all is finished.  Yes, this project is gonna take a few weeks for sure!  Until then, here are two more inspiring and organized desks/command centers to take a peak at this weekend.  They appeared at 11 Magnolia Lane along with all the other talented Operation: Organization Back to School Series contributors.  Click the links below to catch up!

I’m in love with Terry’s command center and revamped desk.  If you’re a black and white fan (like me!) then you must check it out!  I’ll share quick secret with you… I also had the chance to meet the representatives for Osborne Wood Products that she mentioned.  Let’s just say, you’ll be hearing more about them from me later. ;)

Happy weekend!

 

An Updated Art Cart

As promised, I’m co-hosting today for a hugely inspirational series on Back-to-School Organization at 11 Magnolia Lane.  In their series (called Operation: Organization, Back to School Edition), they offer a little bit of everything when it comes to preparing for the school year.  My contribution today is a detailed tour of my daughter’s Art Cart.

Organize your children's art supplies in this cheerful Art Cart!

If you have art supplies floating around your house, this may be your answer to keeping them in one place.  In a few days, I’ll share a MAJOR review of several potential carts and why THIS one made the cut in our household.  I have many reasons and did all the research ahead of time for you!  So stay tuned and you’ll get to read more on that topic soon!
