tackle it Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

My tackle it Tuesday was actually a tackle it Monday but in keeping with my Tackle it November theme I figured that was okay!! I have no before picture I am going to need you to use your imagination. Picture the destruction of a category 3 hurricane. Get the idea?? That is what our toy room looked like, but thanks to a Kindergarten homework assignment and my desire to CLEAN..(cough..cough). We came up with this result.....

I got the bins from Target (I bought them myself and no they didn't pay me to say this). I printed the labels from my computer and mounted them on cardstock (from CTMH) and then tied them on with yarn. I wanted to be able to reuse the bins and relabel as needed.
Also thanks to my brother for building the shelves for me to help us organize!!

How do you organize your kids things? I have shown you several ways that we do ours now if you have any suggestions or tips I would love to hear them!!

It looks fantastic - so clean and organized, much better than my house! We use Lego buckets and small blankets to wrap up the kids' Legos. We also use cardboard boxes and bookshelves for all our books.
I just love those cloth bins! I really wanted to buy some last time I was at Target but I don't have any shelves they could go on. Great tackle, it looks awesome!

Stop by my Tackle-it Tuesday if you have a chance! :)

That looks so great! It's inspired me to do something in our playroom... It's a disaster! (Mostly because I decided to move some of my sewing things in there... hehe...

How to get Urine/Sweat stains out of your Mattress

If you have kids you have pee stains I know it.  If you don't lucky you or you are a liar and in denial.  I have pee stains on more than one mattress.  I also have sweat stains on pillows because well I sweat a.lot .  It's a gift I know. I digress. Anyway I have tried many different ways to get urine/pee out of mattresses and I have been very unsuccessful so I did a google search and what do you know?  Another mom had pee stains too.  So I borrowed her recipe and it totally worked so I am sharing it with you. All you need are these few house-hold ingredients and a spray bottle.  I bought a really expensive one (NOT) I used one I had for my kids hair.  It worked great. You will need: 3 Tablespoons Baking Soda 8 ounces Hydrogen peroxide 1 drop dish soap Mix together well and use right away. My mom discovered that if it is not mixed well the baking soda will clog the sprayer.  You also can't store this apparently it doesn't last in the bottle and it is no longe

Yes they are!

Question of the day well actually question of my life time as a mother.... "Are they all yours by birth?"  Um yes, yes they are.  I think they look like me don't you?  Thanks to my friend Peter Loosli for the great photo. I am linking up with Really Are you Serious today for her Mommy and me Monday.  This is an older post so if you want to see what we are up to today click here .

Master Bedroom Makeover Board and Batten

 I highly recommend a few items although you don't HAVE to have them it just makes this project go so much faster.  I bought a pancake compressor with three nail guns included saved me on this project and a miter saw.  I bought both from Home Depot and they didn't pay me to say that it is just where I happen to shop.  I actually had this all measured out and went to Home Depot and they cut the mdf primed boards for me.  However I later purchased the miter saw and was then able to cut things right here at my house.  The nail gun I used is a 16 gauge gun that can shoot nails up to 3 inches.  I used a 2.5 inch nail to cover the thickness of the board and wall. Ok so I recommend deciding how you want your boards spaced first and measure and mark on the wall where you want them.  I tried to do every 16 inches because that is how far apart my studs were but then I realized my wall wasn't an even length and so I have some that look a little off on the ends.  Lesson learned
