organised lego storage

September 9th, 2014|Categories: A Little Delightful, organisation|Tags: , , , , , |6 Comments

I get a few messages about our organised lego storage most weeks, so I thought I’d do up a post to share with you all about it!
Noah (7 years old) had been asking and asking if we could separate his lego by colour and I honestly was apprehensive – it looks great and super organised when separated but I didn’t think he would keep up with it in terms of cleaning and packing up after a busy lego building session! And since he is responsible for cleaning up his own lego mess I really thought the […]

keeping organised :: school papers

March 13th, 2014|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , |2 Comments

Hi everyone! I am working through some of the questions I get asked most and this one pops up all the time – how do I deal with / sort / keep all the school papers and newsletters from school… so I am sharing my little system here.I don’t share stuff like this all the time simply because I am often looking for a ‘better way’ and never want to share something with you under the guise of ‘it works!’ when it doesn’t really or if I’ve only just set it up or have only […]

a little delightful fridge makeover + giveaway!

October 27th, 2013|Categories: A Little Delightful|Tags: , , , , , |78 Comments

This post is brought to you by Howards Storage WorldIt’s Spring! And like most people after a long cold cozy winter, I’m starting to get itchy to get into some spring cleaning!First stop in our house was the fridge. We have never really felt this fridge worked well for us, but it fits in the fridge recess in our kitchen which is an odd size so we just had to go with it. As you can see, I have tried to keep it organised, using baskets and such to help corral similar items. We also like […]

If I missed yours or if you have a question I haven’t answered feel free!!Where are the baskets in your […]

our play spaces

July 29th, 2013|Categories: crafts|Tags: , , , , , |10 Comments

Happy Monday lovely people! :o}I hope you had a great weekend! One of the things I receive the most messages and emails about is people wondering how we have set up the kids play spaces in our home. I admit our kids are very lucky with what they have space-wise in this house. They are lucky enough have two areas that are dedicated to playing and creating.If you have been a reader for a while you will know I like to change our house around a lot. We have recently done a whole switcheroo {again} and […]

a little bathroom makeover

March 12th, 2013|Categories: A Little Delightful|Tags: , , , |14 Comments

A few weekends ago we set about to make a few little changes around the house. It always feels nice to make these little changes and I love it when we find a that perfect solution or idea. Budget is always a factor so usually I turn to Ikea as they stock such a large range and most things are really reasonably priced.In the case of our bathroom, I just really really didn’t like how it looked. It was boring and I tried to dress it up with some large photographs I had taken […]

back to school {2013} : the school corner + homework supplies caddy

February 5th, 2013|Categories: A Little Delightful|Tags: , , , , , |9 Comments

Finishing off the back to school posts is our new School Corner!You might recognise this space as the spot our writing workshop used to be – I moved this quite a while ago so that it was closer to the kids work table which left this area a little blank. It is right next to our dining table, which is where I though Noah could do his homework at this young age {Year 1, nearly 6 years old} as he will probably need some help or want to talk through things with me and this […]

back to school {2013} little routines to help keep organised

January 24th, 2013|Categories: printables|Tags: , , , |3 Comments

Hi everyone! Another topic I have received a lot of emails and messages about is our school routines!Now Noah is only starting in Year 1, and last year did not have homework or anything like that so our routine is pretty basic. I have a fair idea on when I am going to implement homework time {after snack when he gets home} but as we haven’t tried it out yet I don’t know how we’ll go. As for some little routines we do to help our school days go a little smoother, I will start with […]

{around the house} 5 jobs in 5 minutes

October 10th, 2012|Categories: A Little Delightful|Tags: , , , |3 Comments

I often get asked for tips and tricks on how to manage mess in the house.Just for the record – my house is often MESSY. Toys everywhere, especially hiding under the couch. Stuff that hasn’t been put away. Our house is a normal house and it’s well lived in. I have kids and have had to change my expectations some-what as to what I class as ‘messy’. But in a previous life {pre husband and kids} I was a complete neat freak who couldn’t sleep at all if there was something that needed cleaning or cushions […]
