Pinspiration: Bag Holder

One of the places that I feel the lest organized is my car.  It’s not covered over in clutter, but I always feel like my car is messy.  On the other hand, I always feel like I could be better prepared for emergency situations.  It’s my ‘too much stuff/not what I need’ struggle!

I want to be THAT Mom.  You know the one.  “Hey Lisa, baby Cutiepie had a blow out.  Got anything to put in a dirty diaper?” or “Hey Lisa, little Messyface got sand in his socks at the playground.  Have anything to put them in?”  Yeah, I want to be Super Mom.  I said it.  When I saw this on Pinterest I knew it would be perfect for my hero-like Mom tools.  Control clutter and destroy trash before it takes over car-topia and  look good doing it.  Word!  (See I told ya!)

So introducing my newest member in my arsenal . . dunta du dahh… THE BAG HOLDER!

I decided to not attempt the fabric and Mod Podge  like Tattertots and Jello really only because I can never get the jar open.  And then I would have had to wait for it to dry.  Instead I opted for some scrapbook paper and spray adhesive.  This is just going in the bin in the car so it shouldn’t get too much wear and tear.   Otherwise I would have went the fabric route. 

And here is my inspiration:

What do you think?  Nailed it!

A T-astic Valentine’s Day

Confession:  I love all things Mr. T and the A-Team.  It’s true.  I do.  And I’m not ashamed.  In fact, off all the famous people I have met, Steven J. Cannel (one of the creators of the series) is my all time favorite.  Yes, I know.  Nerd alert!

I also know that I am not the only one out there.  How?  Because I have found a ton of great gift ideas for other like minded children of the 80’s.

If I actually had to buy Valentine’s cards this year, this would be it.  Hands down!

And if I had an office, this would so be on the wall.  There are different versions of this, but this one totally makes me laugh.

And how great are these? 

I have this pinned to my My Style board on Pinterest.  I would own it if I drank tea.  Is it wrong to put coffee in a Mr.Tea mug? 

I don’t have an IPad, but this cover makes me want one.  I wish it was big enough for my lab top.  The listing says that they do have covers for lap tops, but on in vintage Star Wars. Hummmmm . . . . . . .

Here are some non Valentine-ie things

If I could plan my own birthday party it would be an A-Team themed party!  I don’t know why I haven’t thought of this before.  Well, either that or an originally  Willy Wonka themed party.
If I were having a baby these two items would be on the registry.  Awesome!

So what do you think?  What are you planning on gifting for Valentine’s Day?
