Answering a few of your questions:
1. Razmataz (where we have purchased some things you see around our house) is a physical store, not a catalog. At least not that I’m aware of. It’s a home furnishings chain around Arizona.
2. Several of you are asking about toy organization. Here’s how we do it around here. (Keep in mind that what works for one person/family/house doesn’t necessarily work for another.) We have an open (i.e. no door) play room off of the main family room. Games are in cupboards somewhere else, because it really bugs me when game pieces get all loose & mixed in with the toys. Books are all kept in this bookcase.
Here’s a look at both sides of the play room.
See all those drawers? That’s where the toys are. My kids love going through drawers to find random treasures and I soooo don’t worry about what goes in what drawer. One less thing to stress about. And when the room is picked up (it’s easy for the kids to just throw everything in drawers) … it looks nice and not quite so toy-infested.
Both the bookcase and the other piece (where we store all the toys) happen to be from Razmataz.
3. I’m still getting questions about my paint color. The neutral paint in our home is called Oak Harbor from Dunn-Edwards and it is the color carried throughout all the main areas in our home. Hallways, kitchen, family room, play room, guest room, master bedroom, dining room. All Oak Harbor, eggshell finish. Just not the powder bath or the kids’ bedrooms.
4. The cute homemade purse that you saw in my Feb. 20th post is made by Karlee Fuchs. She makes the most darling bags & purses and is one of the sweetest and most talented people I know. Go browse around her shop.
5. The tool caddy, as seen in my March CK cover story (organizational article) is from Pottery Barn Kids.
6. Where do I do my printing? I’m certain there are a lot of really great online printing services. I just happen to use Costco.com because I usually need my prints fast. So I upload and can pick them up at my local Costco in an hour. As for my black & white prints … also Costco. The way I get them so “sharp” and “clean” is that I do my own photo editing (with Adobe Photoshop) before I turn the images over to be printed.
