What’s in your Swoop MINI bag? Our MINI bag is not just for Lego pieces! In fact, it can be used as a cosmetic bag, for knitting needles and yarn, for kid’s snacks, golf balls, collecting rocks on the beach… the options are endless. I decided to feature our “Black Cat” Mini bag with all our favorite, tried and true, tested beauty products.

#1 Josie Maran SPF Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 – chemical FREE :)
#2 Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant (exfoliant)
#3 Kerastase Elixir Ultime Oleo-Complexe (decreases frizz, adds shine and has an amazing scent!)
#4 Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer broad spectrum SPF 20 (very sheer, light weight, natural coverage)
#5 NARS (for a natural look their eye shadow colors are great)
#6 Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream (a little goes a LONG way – a more intensive moisturizer – all natural)
#7 ROC Retinol Deep Wrinkle SPF 15 Daily Moisturizer (a little anti-aging wrinkle control)

Head on over to our Facebook Page and we are giving away one BLACK CAT MINI bag today! Winner will be selected by end of day Friday, June 27th.

Kid’s Art Work.

Do you have a pile of your kiddo’s art work somewhere, stashed away, on your “to-do” list of how to organize this ever-growing pile of creations? My philosophy has always been “less is more” but it is quite hard to decide the what makes the keeper’s list and what gets the boot. Maybe I am just too sentimental about them growing up? Maybe this is a no-brainer for most people? Who knows, but I still haven’t found a creative way to organize this. I have heard that selecting just 5 favorite pieces from your kid’s ENTIRE childhood and framing it or displaying it nicely might just be all you need to do. Looking back on my childhood, I was a drawer, but do I need to now see all those drawings now or do I want to? No way.

Swoop on Houzz

Architects, interior designers, and more ∨

From designer seating and office desks to message boards and credenza, create your dream home office.
From wallpaper to stencils, upholstery fabric to room dividers, design doesn’t stop at construction.

We have partnered with Houzz and were very excited to see our Orange Crush Swoop Bag + True Blue Mini bag featured in their story:
Instant Storage for the Kids’ Stuff:

“Show us a kid and we’ll show you an 18-wheeler full of toys. Seriously, how do kids accumulate more stuff than a dryer filter? Oh, right: We parents and grandparents spoil them rotten. And that’s how it should be. But having our child’s net worth in toys is the least of our worries. We’re more concerned with how to keep all the action figures, building blocks and stuffed animals neat and organized — and keep them from jabbing our bare feet as we shuffle through the house.”

In this photo you can find products from us, Swoop Bags (thank you Houzz!) as well as these companies that can help get you and your kids’ room organized and their toys in just the right places: Sprout-KidsMimish Designs, Mod Mom Furniture, OOTS!, Way Basics, P’kolino and more.

Hi! I'm Sarah Kirk, owner and designer of Swoop Bags (Seattle) and I'm also the mother of two busy, Lego-loving boys whose creative bursts often leave the house in a state of high-alert clutter. I am always searching for ways to simplify our home and to bring a sense of organizational Zen to family life with design in mind.
