    Hi, I love your Santa letter printable a but have you ever considered doing a template for smaller children. My son is 5 and his writing is bigger because he’s only in prepReplyCancel

    • Hannah

      You could always print on bigger page / split printing to double sided to spread it over two pages :)ReplyCancel

    I offered to do my daughters ironing and in return she wrapped all my presents. It was fantastic and has really helped both of us. Last year I babysat and she and her brother did all the food shopping for Christmas. I loved being with the kids and they appreciated some time out.ReplyCancel

Miss 9’s bedroom gets a makeover

I have recently given Miss 9’s bedroom a make over.  We moved into this house when I was pregnant with Miss 9, when I found out I was having a girl I couldn’t help myself and painted a pink feature wall in her bedroom.  So really I presumed pink was going to be her favourite colour.  I […]

  • LOVE!!! I actually have blog post for Monday about how much i would love to do icecream room. Many of these items are featured. Great minds!! Well done :)ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      It’s just so colourful!! Miss 11 is eyeing off the watermelon and pineapple range, I would have so much fun helping her redecroate her bedroom as I am loving watermelons at the momentReplyCancel

      • Oh i love pineapples & watermelon… i did post other week showing ranges of both. I asked which team readers were on. I wish i had lots of rooms to decorate.. kids rooms are so much fun!ReplyCancel

  • Wow Kat, you truly have outdone yourself, it looks fantastic! I have total (when I was 9) bedroom envy! I will have to head to Adairs to shop for my little girl…she’s 3 & a half and still in a cot! Well her cot turns into a ‘bed’ but it still looks like a cot to me! Thanks for the fantastic tips! P.s your fairy painting is precious!ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      LOL I do too Jenni, I was never able to chose the colour and linens for my bedroom when younger so I am really open to my kids picking what they want and feeling comfortable in their bedroom and making it theirs. I love all this colour and I think the polka dot wall just finishes it all off beautifully.ReplyCancel

  • rebecca

    Hi, I love the bed!! where did you get it from?ReplyCancel

    • Tara

      I could be wrong but it looks like it’s from ‘Incy Interors’ReplyCancel

      • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

        The bed is also from Adairs. It can only be brought in store and not online.ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Hi Rebecca, The bed is from Adairs. It can only be purchased in store and not online though.ReplyCancel

  • Oh this looks gorgeous Katrina! I love the colour scheme and the gorgeous pops of pastel colours. That ice cream lamp is seriously fun too. Great makeover! xReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Thank you Vanessa.:) Colourful and happy.:)ReplyCancel

  • Kate

    Love it! Had to laugh – painted my daughter’s room pink when we moved in and she was 8 months old – now nearly 7 and has declared she wants it green! I am hoping to hold out until after Christmas though :) Think I will start by getting her to choose bed linen, too. Looks lovely Kat!ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Ooh thank you Kate! Yes it is beautiful.:) Great idea with picking the linen first, she may just change her mind on what colour she wants to paint her wall. Also trying to match the linen might b harder if you paint first.ReplyCancel

  • Looks so fresh and bright – gorgeous!ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Thank you Kez! Miss 9 is thrilled to pieces with her new room.:)ReplyCancel

  • Leesa

    Love the room – just beautiful. Just wondering the purpose of the wire basket under the pink table? and where the pink table came from. Thank you :)ReplyCancel

    • leesa

      Oops – just saw tables are from Adairs xReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Hi Leese, Yes the little pink table is from Adairs and the white basket is for her to put things in ( she likes to put her slippers in there so on a winters morning they are nice and close).ReplyCancel

  • LOVE IT Kat. Well done!
    What an awesome space for a special little lady!

  • Molly

    I was just wondering if you were going to be adding any cleaning tasks to the Christmas series like last year?ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Hi Molly, No i’m so sorry not this year. I have changed it up a little.:)ReplyCancel

  • Rachael

    Thanks, Katrina, these are well-timed ideas for me. I like to buy Christmas gifts through the year as I see them on special, so another thing I like to do before I write the gift list is to find all the gifts that are stashed around the house, and assign them to receivers on the list. This way, I know what I already have, who might receive them, and who I still need to buy for.ReplyCancel
