my spring to-do list

something about the blue skies, fresh air and sunshine makes me seriously want to freshen up my space and get creative!

here’s a few things on my spring to-do list…

1. simplify the kitchen counters {clear off clutter}

2. organize the boys’ toys. this feels like a massive project.

3. create a spring wreath {which hopefully i can share with you!}

4. find a mirror to hang over our bed

5. take a class at our community college. either photography or painting?

6. Make strawberry jam. And lots of it!

7. Spruce up our backyard with plants a new {maybe thrifted} table and chairs for warmer weather and outdoor eating!

8. What else??


  1. My kids just ended their 2 week break, and I also tackled the playroom/toys issue. It looks a whole lot better, re-arranged and re-purposed to reflect how they’re growing…but wow it was a LOT of WORK!! (And I could not let them witness what I was getting rid of!)

  2. Sounds lovely! I worked in my flower garden yesterday. We live in a townhouse, and my neighbor and I share a small patch of garden. She lets me plant and tend to it.
    I need to add some fresh flowers and more mulch…..fresh mulch screams spring! Have a wonderful weekend! 😉

  3. The toys! and my kitchen need solme serious TLC. I want to learn how to make smoothies, cake pops, and get some new, fresh, healthy recipes. and make an easter banner. and…i need to stop somewhere…

  4. Great list!! I love all your pictures, your words, your blog!
    Its snowing here, snowing!! Isn’t it April?? I need spring??!! I’m going to look in your store!
    Happy Friday!

  5. Your #1 & #2 are a must do in my house. If you come up with a good plan, please share. i’m in the mood to start some potted plants for our deck so that’s a project I am about to start on. 🙂 Happy Spring!

  6. LOVING the photos of blue skies…Washington weather tricked us wtih a coupld of nice days and now back to cold rain. bleh.

    Spring (I will daydream)… LOL
    get the garden in (it will be a trial run for a small CSA to support us this summer), and feed a women/childrens shelter

    make some picnic quilts for us and to sell in my etsy shop

    keep up with my course work in college…sure wish it was painting or photography that would be sooooo fun! btw-i vote for painting :o)

    have a great weekend!

  7. Sounds like a good list. I have to have my hubby do the toy organizing as I always want to freak out at how overwhelming it is and he works very methodically and just gets er done. Happy Weekend!

  8. Ahhh, I can’t wait to make strawberry jam! Probably some raspberry too! 🙂

    Sounds like a lovely spring list! We definitely want to find some out door furniture to spice up our patio too!

  9. Ooh, painting! I vote for painting. I’ve always wanted to take a watercolor class. Plus, I already love your photography skills. 🙂 Hope you get to all your Spring goodness!
