What is wilson silverleaf? We're organitarians; it's best for our bodies and the planet. We cloth diapered Nina for the same reason. We drive a hybrid car & wish we could afford solar panels on our house. I'm a strong advocate for homebirth, full-time mom, & also a movie junkie. We don't have a tv though; we watch dvds on our computer. We love contradancing. I garden & knit; Larry's a puzzle lover & plays fantasy football.

before & after

If you know me at all you will know that while I sometimes exist in the midst of chaos and disorganization I really really dislike being in that state. I love to organize and I love when everything is organized. Parts of Nina's room have been bothering me for a while, so I spent some time and money at IKEA yesterday.

Here's what was bothering me so much (the other two people I live with consider this to be tidied).

And here's what it looks like now:

I found a super cute cotton rug that goes with the other stuff in the room so I got that too.

And while that cardboard box in between the chair and drawers isn't super nice looking, it is holding artwork that was all over the room and taking up all three drawers. I will ask Nina to go through all the artwork in the box (I didn't throw any away) and pick some to keep.

And yes, the balloons in the "before" pictures are from Nina's birthday party almost two months ago. I got rid of them, it was just time.

I peek in on your blog from time to time (Anne from SDNF). Her room looks great, I cannot stand chaos and clutter. It makes me antsy LOL. Job well done!
