Thursday Favorite Things #474

Hello, and welcome to the Thursday Favorite Things (TFT) link party!  I'm so glad you're here today. 


I'm looking out the window at some lovely falling snow, but I'm also hoping it stops before 5:00, when I have to go out!  We've had a pretty mild winter so far this year, and I've been so grateful for that. This winter is passing by really quickly, because I keep waiting for it to really start. I do hate the gray skies, though.


I hope you've had a good week. I had some major dental work yesterday, but it really wasn't as bad as my apprehension about it had been. 


My art/craft area is still not finished, but I'm hoping to get at least a few pictures taken today. I appreciate all of the encouragement!  I'm usually hesitant to share any pictures of my own home decor and/or organization, because they pale in comparison to so many others.  And, nothing ever feels quite finished.  But, I realize that kind of perfectionism is really a hindrance and needs to go.


Here are my features from last week's party:

I pin all of the features to my Thursday Favorite Things Pinterest board.

5 Apps to Help You Clean and Organize Your House

To get our homes looking spotless and organized, we can all use a solid cleaning and decluttering regime. It’s not always easy to keep on top of all of that, but these apps might help. 


I have not personally used these apps yet, but I'm intrigued by them and think they could add some much needed structure to many of our lives!  Be sure to check out the reviews and ratings for each in advance.

I have still been working behind the scenes on my art/craft area.  I keep tweaking and tweaking and finding better ways to organize things.  The purging has mostly stopped, though!

How to Make Your Home Cozy for the Whole Family

Through the winter months, we typcially all spend a lot more time in our home. Lately, we've been spending even more time inside.  Is your house as cozy as it could be? Here are some tips you can try that might help you get the cozy, warm atmosphere you love. 




Add Some Thicker Curtains


Do you constantly feel a chill in certain rooms in your home?   If your windows aren't as efficient as they should be, they might be the problem. Replacing windows can be really expensive and might not fit your budget, though. Although it might sound obvious, one simple way to get a warmer, cozier room is to install some  thicker curtains.


The right curtains will block cold air and keep warm air inside. Thick material and/or insulated curtains can give a cozy, warm look and feel. By simply adding or switching out your curtains, you might be able to keep the thermostat at a reasonable place and still stay warm, while adding some texture and color to the windows.  You might even think about switching the curtains with the seasons.

Thursday Favorite Things #472: Organizing, Planning, & Getting Motivated

Happy Thursday!  I'm so glad you're here today for another Thursday Favorite Things (TFT) link party.


How are you all doing?  I'm honestly a little overwhelmed.  Blogging has taken a back seat to blogging preparation, if that makes sense.  I've been planning several creative projects that I'll be sharing with you, and for me, the more ideas I have going on at once, the more overwhelmed I get! The post I had planned for 2 weeks ago still needs its photos.  But, I'm consoling myself with the fact that all of this preparation will make the next few weeks more smooth. 🤞


To regain some sense of order and purpose, I've made good progress, lately, in purging a lot of unused or little used art and craft supplies.  January is all about that. I had been hanging on to so many things that I really needed to purge. Some of the products had gone bad or were mostly used up, some were things from projects that I no longer have the motivation to do, and some were victims of my changing tastes.

My organizational tip for the day - Don't purchase bins, drawers, or other organizational kinds of products until you assess what organizational items you already have or can DIY. (Lesson learned.)

Thursday Favorite Things #470 Happy New Year!

Welcome to the Thursday Favorite Things (TFT) link party!  I've been in a bit of a holiday daze since Christmas, but I have to say, I've enjoyed it.  I've had no idea what day it is, and I've eaten far too many cookies. The week between Christmas and New Year's Day is always like that for me. Is it that way for you, too?  It's my favorite week of the year.


I'm sorry to say I didn't get the blog post up that I had planned for this week. It wasn't quite ready, mostly due to the above mentioned holiday daze.  My husband has had the past week off, and we've eaten a lot of yummy take-out and worked on fun projects.  This time of year is the only time his job slows down a little bit, so he usually enjoys the post Christmas week.


Here are my features from last week's party:

Gluten Free Ranch Dip from Marilyn's Treats (one of my fellow co-hosts, who always posts delicious recipes)
