Calligraphy Organization

Are you a calligraphy fan? I took a calligraphy class in Dallas several years ago and loved it! Calligraphy has become a hobby and craft for many people, so I run into calligraphy supplies every so often at client's homes. Depending on how many supplies you have you can organize it in all different kinds of ways. Like this:

And so many other ways. How do you organize your calligraphy supplies?

Made in the USA: Native Deodorant

Well I have blogged about so many different natural, made in the USA deodorants on here. So many of my clients use these Native brand deodorants and love them. They are aluminum and paraben free. I do like them and really like having the travel size stay in my overnight bag, but don't like that they start to clump from time to time. Have you used this brand and do you like it?

Giveaway: Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic Toothbrush

Are there any electronic toothbrush users out there? I have been using an electronic toothbrush for about 13 years now and don't plan on ever going back to a plain ol' regular toothbrush. When I got my first electronic toothbrush I wanted it because it was recommended by my dentist at the time and heard great things about them. Sure enough, I got one as a gift in 2005 and was so happy. I saw immediate results. I like that electronic toothbrushes prompt you on how long you need to be brushing and especially how clean my mouth feels afterwards.

When Smile Brilliant reached out to me to try their new cariPRO Ultrasonic electric toothbrush and give one away to a lucky reader, I immediately said YES!!!! For those of you that have been reading for a while you know I am picky about who I work with when it comes to sponorships and I thought to myself "I mean, I brush my teeth several times a day and love my electronic toothbrush so why not? Plus, readers will get one too? Heck yeah!!"

Y'all I love this toothbrush! It pulses every 30 seconds and prompts you to move to a different quadrant of your mouth. This is something I had to get used to because my old one did not do that. It is a good reminder to brush other parts of your mouth. My teeth and gums feel so much cleaner and it is so light weight compared to my old electronic toothbrush. I love that the toothbrush heads have a tongue scrubber on the back of them and it has a clean, white, massage, gum care and sensitive modes. I have been using the whitening mode in hopes of whitening my teeth a little more.

I feel for the quality of brushing, price and functionality the Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic electric toothbrush is totally worth it. The best part is they are giving one away to YOU! Enter HERE for your chance to win. They are also giving Eco Modern Concierge readers a discount for 20% off cariPRO Ultrasonic electric toothbrushes by entering the code: ecomodernconcierge20

Good luck and let me know how you like the toothbrush once you get it!

How to Organize Halloween Decorations

Gather all decorations. Gather all decorations from various rooms, cabinets, areas, etc. and put it all in one place.

Purge. Donate, recycle or trash decorations you no longer like, use or want.

Contain. Contain the decorations in very specific bins. Orange bins or lids like these are popular for storing Halloween decorations or weathertight bins. Use silica gel packets to keep moisture minimal and to help preserve some of your items, especially fabric decorations.

Wrap. Wrap breakable items in bubble wrap or tissue paper.

Make a list. Make a list of everything you may want to buy or need to replace for the following year.

Inventory. Inventory what is in each box, so you can find exactly what you are looking for.

Label. Label each box. I like using these labels.

Store. Store in a place where you have room. This could be in a closet, attic, basement, etc.

How do you like to organize your Halloween decorations?
