Yahhoooo! Happy Birthday Lavendar Mom!!! :) That TV must be super cute!

My favorite storage tip is using the ribbon ring for ribbons! I <3 that device and I don't think very many people know about it or use it.

One Mom memory I have is a couple of years ago she asked me to make a "St. Patty" card. It was a couple of days before St. Patrick's day, so I made a card with tons of green glitter on it. When I gave it to her, she looked really confused. I asked her if she liked it and she said she did, but didn't understand why I put glitter on it and shamrocks. Turns out that I misunderstood her and she asked her to make her a "sympathy" card. LOL! We had tons of laughs!

Here's to hoping you make it to 50 really soon!

I don't really have a fave storage tip, I just use whatever containers I have lying around. That would be mostly tupperware. lol
Favorite mom memory would be talking on the phone late at night.

Thanks for the chance to win:)

Sweet card. I'm a new follower. My favorite storage tip would be my pegboard. I hang my cricut mats, scissors, embossing gun, cds, tape, pretty much anything with a hole or cord on it. Then for little stuff, I bought little cups that you hang on it and filled those with stuff.
My favorite memory with my mom are the times we did silly or dumb stuff, which we seem to do quite a lot. Over the summer we got our rowboat anchor stuck on a powerline that was in the water and had to be rescued. Once we were rescued the wind pushed us into the weeds and we couldn't get out and we had to be rescued again. That same trip we put the front anchor down and the rope wasnt attached to anything, so we lost our anchor. lol At the time we didn't find it funny, but looking back, its pretty funny now. We have a lot of good times but the ones like this make me laugh.

Happy Birthday to your mom! My storage tip is to store twine in sugar dispensers. I picked mine up at the dollar tree. they are great because you can easily pull the right amount of twine out and the rest stays contained and looks pretty in the glass containers.
My favorite memory of my mom would be All of them. My mom means so much to me and everyday that I have with her is special.

Happy Birthday to your mom! I am a new follower!
I love to use ribbon rings - I just found out about them and love them!

Happy belated birthday to your mom! I am a new follower!
I have a really small apartment, so my craft space is tiny. I will use any kind of organization trick that will keep everything from getting to be a complete mess. I work at a school and the teachers often clean out there rooms and what ever they don't want they put in the break room. I am constantly picking up old paper dividers, containers, boxes.
My parents got divorced when I was 3 and I lived with my dad, so I didn't get to see my mom that often. So any memory that I have of the two of us together is important to me!

Thank you for the give away and congrats on reaching 50!

Hi Kelly! I am a new follower. I love your blog and your 2 babies. My storage idea is I saved the silverware holder from our old dishwasher and use it to store my gelly pens, scissors, and markers. Works great and has a handle on it for carrying. My favorite mom memory is when my mom, her mom, and I would get together every Christmas and make sour cream roll out sugar cookies. We had a wonderful time. Sincerely Dawn!
