rounding up your little picaso...

When we love our things, we take better care of them. With that in mind, how about keeping your Little Picaso's goodies in something she can't help but adore - like with these crayon (shown) & colored pencil roll-ups. They can be found at

If you need to buy by volume, then house the motherload in the cupboard while giving your little one a great selection to work with. It's a simple case of supply & demand. Wax will abound on the carpet with crayons-for-the-masses, while the chosen few will be coveted.
Great for travel too.

Happy Valentine's Day - Happy One Year Blog Anniversary...

Today marks my one year anniversary of this blog!

Since my Visual Girl word for 2010 is LOCAL, I am going to start adding more items that my fellow Vancouverites and Canadians can pop over to their local shops to get.

So for all you Canadians wanting to organize your closets, London Drugs has these beauties on sale for $6.99 Cdn. These flocked suit or shirt hangers keep your garments from sliding or misshaping, and also create more room in your closet. Personally I prefer a chunky wood hanger, but that's just me.

So if you are glued to the 2010 Olympic coverage, grab a stack of clothes, and go through them as you watch. Back to your closet during the commercial breaks, and before you know it, voila! - your closet is a thing of beauty and function!

"You’re probably full of ideas for changes you’d like to make to yourself, your workplace, and your community. Just remember: Change isn’t an event; it’s a process. Think about a child learning how to walk. There’s no single moment when he learns how to do it. He staggers and struggles until, finally, one day he takes a few steps—and then falls down. But he doesn’t give up. He tries again and again, and before too long, he’s running."

Adapted from “Switch: How to Change When Change Is Hard,” by Chip and Dan Heath. To be published by Broadway Books Feb. 16.

I couldn't have said it better myself!
