It's time to get this NEW House in ORDER!
Over the past few months, I've heard a lot of "How do you do all you do?" "Where do you find the time?" "I could NEVER do everything you do!" And while I know these are all meant as compliments...they make me feel very guilty.
Truth is: I don't.
I show you all the FUN things I make time for in our lives. The projects, the blogs, the playtime,.....you don't see the mess behind it all. Frankly it drives me nutso some days. While all of you busy bee mommies (and daddies) are keeping a clean/organized household....ours sometimes is chaotic! Dirty clothes/dirty floors/dirty dishes pile up.....and on and on.
While linking up to a craft linky party last week....I stumbled upon my EXACT opposite: Jen. First impression, we could be very similar: She's a creative mom that loves bright colors and crafting and home decor....but it comes to an ABRUPT HALT there. Her blog is called I heart Organizing. LOL! Mine should be called "I heart someone else to come and clean and organize FOR me"
Well, she inspired me. (I know, Kim....you inspire me too ;) I need to get my life in order. Our house in order. I NEED TO! And there's no better time than the present right? I mean, I want this new house to be a FRESH start for our family. So let's keep it FRESH!
Jen did a challenge back in March to create a Family Binder.
OH HOW I WISH I WOULD HAVE KNOWN!!
(Because back then she was a DOLL and gave everyone FREE printables to create their own right along with her)
Not that she's not a DOLL now.....just that FREE is always better ;)
Now you can purchase her templates from her Etsy shop though.
Of course, I'm El Cheapo (or would that be La Cheapa?) And made up my own sheets based off of her ideas...hope you don't mind Jen! :) I would say if you are in the market for these types of organizing templates and you don't want to make up your own...you won't find them any cuter than hers!
But here is what I have so far:
Home Maintenance List, I made a whole YEAR checklist! (That might be the Med Tech in me seeping out a bit)
Another Amazing resource I used was the Free Calendar Pages I printed from AnythingButPerfect
Of course, Randy is SUPER skeptical that I might actually stick to this. (I do think he may be right)
But today is a NEW day! Anything is Possible, right? Pray for me. :)
.....and then I can tackle all of Jen's OTHER PROJECTS!
