Off to a good start in Get Organised Month.

I think I must have fallen into every trap of unsuccessful blogging in recent years...lack of technical knowledge, procrastination, content not good enough, content not consistent...you name it, I've done it! Not intentionally though, I hasten to add...!
But, still, it seems like a good idea to make a fresh start now, in Get Organised Month.

So, while I go off and sort out my blog-post calendar, I'll leave you with some easy ideas on how to organise some of those new Christmas toys...

March 'Makeover' winners finally get their dream nursery....

Way back in March Dreams and Wishes held a competition to win a 'Dream Nursery Makeover'.
The lucky winners had a great deal of decorating waiting for them when they moved into their new seaside home so we didn't get started on the nursery for several weeks...but now it's done...and judging by the new occupant's reaction, it's a great success...!

Our winning mum wanted a woodland theme so we started with a feature wall using Scion's 'Branch' wallpaper and painted the rest of the room in a matching chalky white...complimenting the existing furniture.

Additional colours were inspired by the cot-bedding, including hand-made gingham curtains and animal cushions for the tee-pee, made by a family friend...!

The Mimi'Lou wall sticker and SewHeartFelt fox rug continued the woodland theme...while the little crochet stool, from Anne-Claire Petit, echoed the bed-linen colours.

A hand-made lampshade from James Design, completes the makeover.

Our winner is delighted with the new room and says even her daughter's sleep patterns have improved since completing the makeover...great news indeed!

Here's just a peek...
