Walgreens. Let me tell you all about it...
It's that time of year - spring cleaning! Time to clear out and dejunk all the things that have been piling up. There's something about this time of year that just makes me want to get more organized - I think this happens to a lot of people. Have you ever heard of Rubbermaid® All AccessTM storage containers? They look pretty cool - - with a clear, drop-down door, the things inside are easy to see and access. The biggest problem of regular stoarge tubs is that i can never keep track of what's in what, and if I want to grab something ouf of the tub on the bottom it's a big hassle. But with Rubbermaid® All AccessTM storage containers they're stackable and STILL offer access to the bottom top since they have that drop-down door. Pretty cool!
For the sake of "keeping it real", I thought you'd enjoy a picture of the current state of my craft room:
Obviously it needs some help :)
Other ares that are on our to-organize list: boy both's rooms, my girl's closet, and the storage room in our basement. That's where I chunk anything that I'm not sure where it goes, so it needs lots of work for sure. I know that the Rubbermaid® All AccessTM storage containers would be perfect in all of those areas - - with the kids, they'd be awesome because they really need to be able to see what is in the containers (think of it, you could SEE the Legos that are in the tub at the bottom!). I like the stacking aspect for the basement.
And those containers are super easy to find - you can buy Rubbermaid® All AccessTM storage containers at Walmart stores across the country - so go grab some!
Well, here's the roundup of those that participated - - click over on each image below and enjoy their posts!! Have a great Saturday morning!

I bought this stuff called "BrowZings" and it's a wax and color -- so you put the wax on to stick down your crazy flyaway eyebrows, then you add a little color to fill them in. It's not a "drawn-on" look and makes my eyebrows look awesome! Why didn't I know about this before?
I took some pictures for you - one eyebrow has make up on it and one doesn't - - the one with makeup has the arrow (it's different in each picture because one picture is taken in the mirror and one isn't)
So I thought perfect containers were the plastic eggs - just like those little playdoh containers, only cuter. Well beware of what egg you're using, because a bunch of the ones I had were like this:
It was a hit though - - everyone loves playdoh:
Yes, all the eggs in photo shoot are actually filled with playdoh - I each preschool kiddo a set of colors. Here's a "behind the scenes" look at picture-taking; what is with cats and kids always having to be in on the fun?? :)
So - - if you are looking for last-minute items to add to Easter baskets, here ya go - whip up some playdoh and stuff some eggs:
Do you have a favorite homemade playdoh recipe? If so, leave a link in the comments so we can all try it out!

You have probably seen by now, but the awesome Craft Blog Conference, SNAP, is coming up in a few short weeks - wahoo! If you will be there, come find me! If you won't be able to make it this year, don't worry, I will be blogging all about it so you can catch a glimpse of it through my eyes.
Anyways, I'm busily making preparations for my trip behind the scenes. I booked airfare and got the hotel. Am sharing a rental car with friends. And guess what I just did - - booked my airport parking at The Parking Spot - see, here's my screen shot:
Every detail I take care of gets me more excited to go! And I'm really excited about this opportunity to try out The Parking Spot - the last time I traveled, I didn't use them and regretted it because as I waited for my shuttle to pick me up, that yellow and spotted van drove by me several times and I wished I were getting on it.
It was super easy to make my airport parking reservations online - just a few clicks and I'm set to go. I love that they have The Parking Spot at my airport - you can check to see if it's at yours HERE. It's a national chain and they have 34 facilities at over 22 airports, and it's at my airport, so hopefully it's at yours too.
Did you know that The Parking Spot is more than just parking - it's all about hospitality -- along with complimentart luggage service, they have a complimentary newspaper on checkin and chilled water on exit - really! They are always open - and are well-lit and fully fenced (that's awesome for me). You can choose from open-air or covered parking.
And on top of all that, they have a Spot Club, which is a frequent user card. It allows you to manage your account online and earn 1 free day for every 7 days purchased - I love deals like that!
Here I am, last year at SNAP:
Maybe I'll see some of you there this year. Whether you're headed to SNAP or headed to a fun Spring Break, or Getaway Vacation, be sure to check out The Parking Spot and consider using them for parking during your next vacation. Also, follow @TheParkingSpot on Twitter and like The Parking Spot on Facebook so you don't miss anything.
Now that my airport parking is taken care of, worry-free, I can move my mind on to other things - - like what in the world I'm going to wear!
