Hello, and welcome to everyone who has jumped over from I {Heart} Organizing today. We couldn’t be more honored to be featured there today!

We are three friends who started blogging together almost two years ago, just for fun, and since then it has grown into a great way to stay motivated, creative and productive. Christy and Amy both moved to new homes this year and have been working hard to make them feel like home.  Today we thought we’d recap some of our favorite 11 Magnolia Lane projects.

{You can view a shared tour of our homes HERE}.

Before we jump into our home projects, if you have never seen our In the Kitchen with 11 Magnolia Lane series, take a look while you are here. Its probably our best organizing tool–because it answers the “what’s for dinner?” daily dilemma with menus, recipes and shopping lists designed to keep you from feeling crazed every evening. Terry comes up with a healthy, delicious menu each season, so the new Fall menu will be coming soon.

Back to some inspirational eye candy… since this pantry seems to be a Pinterest favorite, we’ll start here. Christy tackled her small pantry in her historic NC home, not only organizing it but jazzing it up with ribbon, chalkboard decals for shopping lists and mason jars to contain her staples.

Another great idea from Christy’s old kitchen was this week-at-a-glance wall calendar, made from peel and stick chalkboard panels.  What a great way to keep the week’s events front and center!

Then, after relocating to Tennessee, she didn’t let wire shelves get in the way of making her New Pantry just as pretty as the rest of her newly redone kitchen. {Her complete kitchen makeover is here, Part 1 and Part 2}. And, we all agree every pantry needs a chandelier! Right?

Shortly after moving in and overhauling her kitchen, Christy tackled her new laundry room, you can see that post HERE.

Terry also undertook a major project earlier this year, turning unused space in her basement into her Kids’ Learning Center. It’s tucked right next to her desk/workspace so the kids have a dedicated area to work on homework and art projects away from the rest of the house.

As Jen mentioned, Amy just finished a huge project. Her Mom’s recent birthday gift was a makeover of her basement work/craft/sewing room. The complete post on that project is HERE.

Thank you for visiting with us today, and thanks again, Jen, for featuring us. We hope you will stop by 11 Magnolia Lane and visit with us again soon!

Amy, Christy & Terry
