Organize and crash cleaning

I've noticed with the baby I can't do as much "crash cleaning" as I like to call it. It's always worked for me when company is coming. Now it's hard for me to get things done. The baby is still a little collicky and I think she now likes to be held a lot. Can't complain because I'm just so happy to have her. (That's another story for another day...)

I am having a Craft Day with my family on my dad's side. We don't get to see each other very much and it's fun to get together have lunch and make things. My cousin is the "bomb" at making hair bows. They are the cutest bows. Now that I have a little girl I could go "hairbow crazy" along with all the other girl accessories. So we are making bows, tutu's, baby leggings, and whatever else anyone wants to make.

With me having the baby we are having it at my house this time. My house is in ok order but its still needs some deep cleaning and organizing. I haven't figured out what to do with my kids school work. They feel bad when I throw it away but I can't keep all of it. And toys, I have toys everywhere. I need to go through them and give some away. I need some system put in order for my boys to put there toys away. I have bins, totes, and plastic drawer bins. I've had them all organized so they know where things go but they just don't get put back away.

So I'm off to search some great organizing blogs. If you have any you like let me know. In the meantime I'm doing a "mini crash clean" and hope no one cares that my house isn't spotless.

I'll be posting pictures of our Craft day on Friday.


  1. You have 4 kids, one a baby! No one should care about your house not being spotless, don't put too much pressure on yourself, it's SO not worth it. Your family will just appreciate being around you and your family. :)

  2. I'm sure no one will mind if your house isn't completely spotless! I'm sure they'll just be happy to spend time with you.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier today!
