So I started this *little* blog carnival called "Making a Happy Home Monday." The idea is simple...you take one area of your home and make it better. How? You make it more functional or just prettier. In doing this, you do make your home a happier home. The goal is to have women come together and link up down below (on Mr. Linky) and take us into your home, via your blog. You can either tell us the details or you can put up pictures. The purpose of all this is two-fold: 1) it gets you into doing something positive around the house and 2) it encourages and inspires others to accomplish #1. :D Please join me.
This post is about my cards. I sat down to make my Christmas cards. I have some before and after pics. If you will scroll down, you will see the disaster!
OK. Yes...I do know that these are not Christmas cards. However, it totally gives you a glimpse into my mind. Heh...I DID sit to do Christmas cards. I had to go to one of THREE....that's right THREE junk drawers in my kitchen to look for something. Well, during that search I got mad at the thought of having three junk drawers when one of my utensil drawers was always getting stuck. Which reminded me that another NON-junk drawer had a lot of crap in it....which reminded me that the cabinet above my stove (housing my hot pads and aprons) always dropped things when I grabbed an oven mitt. (I never said this would make sense...only that it is how I think. Sadly, this is not an isolated event. I have priorities, they just fight each other for first place and I don't know who to listen to. :D )
This time, I listened to the drawers.
Don't they look better? I emptied them completely. I wiped them out with bleach wipes. I had to re-line a few. In the above photo the 2 outer drawers were junk drawers. The other is by my sink. While I still maintain 2 junk drawers, I have promoted one to begin holding my utensils.
Next Monday? CARDS.........maybe!
OK. Your turn. Link up on Mr. Linky so we can all pop over and show some blogger love and see wha'cha got goin' on.
