I can’t believe that the summer is more than half way done already and we have to start getting ready for school. There is this long list of school supplies that have to be bought, on top of new clothes – as for some weird reason kids tend to speed up their growth during the summer and everything that they try on is suddenly too small.

I have decided to do back to school shopping much earlier this year. And I am so happy to announce that I am all done. This way I had some spare time to make something special (having school in mind) for Olivia. I am really hoping that this project will help her get more organized and thanks to that, more focused and successful in upcoming school year.

Very recently I have made a command center in my kitchen and I really like how much it helps to organize our family activities. I like it so much that I decided to make one for Olivia in her bedroom.
I started this project with creating a pretty chalk wall, which became my canvas for the rest of the project.

Time is definitely flying. I can’t believe that it has been 2 years already, since we prepared Maya’s Nursery. It seems to be so long ago, but at the same time feels like it was just yesterday. I still remember my excitement when choosing every little item that would match my imagination of a perfect pink and gray room.
I wish I would have more pictures made while renovating and decorating this room to be able to show the progress. But I wasn’t thinking then, that one day, I will try to share my story with you.
