What You’ll Find Here



I decided to reintroduce myself to anyone who’s new to The Neat Nook. I’m now in my second year of blogging and realize I may not have officially introduced myself to many of you. If you’d like to know more about me and my background, I created a little spot for that.

What I love most is the fact that you’re here right now reading this post, and I hope you’ll take away tons of helpful ideas from this blog. I use this space for many reasons and have a handful of topics that I like to explore and write about.

In fact, here’s a quick rundown of the categories and what you’ll discover:

  • Organized Living: Need tips on organizing all of the nooks in your life? Make this your go-to resource.
  • Decorating DIY Projects: For those times you want to jazz up the house without spending tons of money or time.
  • Perfectly Packaged: This little spot has all kinds of ideas to wrap gifts with style and grace.
  • Garden Goodies: Get tons of gardening tips and ideas to enjoy your harvested goodies. Yum!
  • A Meaningful Life: Sometimes I like to journal about my family life. I also love to explore new ways of becoming a better version of myself each day. This is a vulnerable place where I share some of that journey with you.

I also have a few semi-weekly series:

  • Creative Tip Tuesdays: This is a spot full of tips and exercises that encourage us to find and express our authentic selves.
  • Thankful Thursdays: Occasionally I’ll share a few things I’m grateful for. I especially love doing this series in November.
  • Friday Wrap: I share more about my personal life and usually list “five things” from the week.

Thanks for joining me. If I haven’t already met you, I hope you’ll reach out at some point to introduce yourself. I love connecting with my readers and seeing what more I can offer.

Here’s to a beautiful day!




Get to know me better!

Hello and happy Friday! It’s a frightfully fun Friday, too. I hope you have your costumes, candy and crazy decorations planned and ready to for tonight. If you need last-minute recipe ideas, check out this post from earlier in the blog.

It has been such a great week meeting new people, sharing a special post with A Blonde Ambition, showing you how to make easy and beautiful pumpkin seed ornaments, and finally creating an “About Kate” page. IMG_3991Be sure to check it out. I’ve included some candid shots and random facts about my life – including my nickname growing up. I hope you’ll enjoy getting to know me better. Let me know what other questions you might have.

I’m glad you’re here and excited to be on this creative journey together. You can always connect with me through comments on the blog, Instagram @katejandersen, or email katejandersen{at}gmail{dot}com.

Have a wonderful weekend!
