Decorate Friday – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool


How has your week in the Living Room been going? If you completed all of your missions, I want you to do something decorative in the living room. Even if you haven’t completed all of your missions, do something decorative. This is the time of year when we don’t do a lot of holiday decorating, and adding a little splash of color in the living room can brighten things up. Take a look around you and think about things you might want to change in your living room and make a plan. You might want to freshen up the paint or change the flooring. You might want to change the type of light bulbs that you have and change the lighting in the living room. You might want to change out your curtains. You might want to change pictures or artwork. Have fun with this!

If you have any questions or tips, please email me. I enjoy hearing from my readers.
