If you look over to the right you will see the follow me buttons. Make sure to follow me if you read this. I would love to see who is reading and if you have a blog, I want to read it too! I love finding new blogs, especially written by other moms :)
I love talking about being more organized because we can all use some help getting our homes in order. An orderly home = sane mommy. I have mentioned Flylady.net on here a couple times, and now it's official: I'm a believer!
There is A LOT of information on her site, so I have been taking my time reading her site before implementing her method. Some things I already do, but I like the way she breaks down the house into "zones" for more focused cleaning and decluttering.
I love her morning and evening routines. They have really helped and they are the things that you do first (babysteps) when you start the Flylady routine. The one thing that has helped me a lot is shining my sink. You basically bleach and clean it till it shines, then be diligent about NOTHING going in that sink. Either it gets washed, or put in the dishwasher. I couldn't believe how much easier my day was by simply putting things in the dishwasher as I went! For some reason walking in the kitchen and seeing the empty sink made my day a bit better. To get started, go to the Babysteps section.
Now for crafty fun. Since I wasn't cleaning my house all day...I had time to make my baby girl a dress!
It turned out soooo cute! I used Prudent Baby's Peasant Dress Tutorial and I was actually a little impressed with myself, I think I actually wont be embarrassed to say I made this! The hem is actually not a disaster! I happened to have some gold thread that matched perfectly and for some reason that really made a difference. And isn't the fabric so retro chic! I am working on another one in polka dots :)
Now I finally made a Facebook page for my little bow venture, Isaboo Bows. I am working on getting the like button on here, but in the meantime, here is the link . I have been wanting to put some barrettes for moms and here is what will be going up today. Sneak peak time!
This bow actually is "in progress", give me some opinion...slipped on skinny headband or a barrette attached?
Yeah, I'm a bit into the fabric from the dress. I can't stop! These will be on the page and ready to buy sometime today or tomorrow, so keep an eye out.
Happy Tuesday everyone!
