Friday Favs: Minimalism, Craft Room Makeover, Making Your Home a Haven + more!

my favorite organizing links - Minimalism, Craft Room Makeover, Making Your Home a Haven + more!

Hi beautiful lovely people, happy Friday to you!  The weekend is here, yay!  My kids have a four day weekend (Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends!) and we are going to RELAX…right after we spend some time today getting all the chores done of course :)  Yep I love having a clean and organized house going into a weekend!

So this past week my sweet friend Mridu, from Life is Organized, and I chatted together on Skype about all things organizing.  Oh my goodness was it ever fun.  I’m not yet sure when she’ll have that up but I will definitely link to it here when it does go live.  If you are looking for some rock solid organizing motivation you need to check out Mridu’s Youtube channel.  She is fun and funny and really just awesome. Here’s a great video with a quick tip to prevent clutter.

My world was also rocked this past week by learning from this post that when typing there should only be one space after a period and not two between sentences.  Umm what?  I have almost ten years of blog posts compiled on this here blog featuring TWO spaces after every single period and I am just finding out now that I’ve been doing it all wrong.  What in the world? And now I’m trying to correct the error of my ways but it is so hard.  See I just naturally want to put two spaces.  I can’t help myself. But I’d like to only do one. I kind of like it. Are you a one or two space kind of person?
