Mission Organization

January 24, 2011
It looks like pack-rat city here in my house. I am a stuff collector, and sadly it is starting to show.

Every corner is cluttered, every cupboard is filled.

I make up excuses daily to myself on why I need to keep things:

" I need the extra tote full of fabric because if my hubby loses his job and we are poor I can make my kids clothes out of it!"

(Except that the extra fabric is made up of hideous polyester, and 1970's plaids, mixed with baby fabrics that have gone out of style long long ago.
I would hand wash my kids jeans and t-shirts every day before making them wear anything made out of that scratchy stuff.)

"I need 15 wooden spoons because we have a lot of company and extra serving spoons are always handy to have."

(Ok, I only have 6, but you get the picture. They are superfluous, and I need space more than I need extra spoons. )

"I need to keep 20 train drawings from my 4 year old that all look the same."

(Why? I don't know.)

So. . .

My mission for 2011 is to SIMPLIFY!

Life is going to get WAY more complicated this May when baby #3 comes so I'm starting right now to cut the clutter out of my life.

So far I have said goodbye to an SUV full of stuff. I had it packed to the brim with everything, clothes, toys, paintings, magazines, electronics, and furniture! I sent it all off to Deseret Industries, a local Thrift Store.
My boys were so willing to give away old toys when I told them that we were giving them away so another little boy play with them.

I also gave away my beloved elliptical trainer. You know, the one I promised I would run on every day. . . and it got used for. . . um. . . 2 months.  *tear* I will miss you.

And I am gutting out my office/studio to make room for the new kid. I can't wait to decorate. The orange walls are going to be a blast to work with!

I didn't realize just how much space Cantaloupe Corner takes up in my house until I took on the project of re-organizing it all, and moving most of it out of the office. Whew, I really am a pack-rat.

Anyways, after all of that rambling, I want to invite you to join me in my 2011 goal to simplify. Start with the physical things. Clean out the clutter in our homes and then we can move on to de-cluttering our time.

I can't wait to find myself under all of this stuff! I feel a thousand pounds lighter already!

nifty gifts

January 9, 2011
Just to prove I haven't been a lazy bum, I have some projects to share that I made for my family members for Christmas!

 A frilly box of friendly flowers for a few of my favorite females.

This apron I created for my niece who is budding pastry chef. I even created my own pattern. I love how it turned out, especially the cute fabrics! I think I may have to make a bigger one for me!

I am so happy to have little girls to sew for since I am going to be even more outnumbered by boys soon.

This was my favorite project. I adore my craft cutter and I get muy excited when I get to break it out and use it for vinyl. (It usually gets used for cutting t-shirt stencils.)  Monograms are everywhere right now, why not on a cookie jar?
mmmm, chocolate.

The rest of my projects somehow escaped my bad photography skills before they were wrapped up and sent off. I also made some cute tees for my teenage niece as well as a FAT stuffed elf shelf-sitter for my Mother-in-Law.

I love the holidays but I am so glad that they are over. I am pooped.

Next project:  turning my office/studio into an office/baby boy's room.
Wish me luck.
I'm already in over my head.

It's a. . . .

January 4, 2011
Christmas is over, the New Year has arrived and I am super psyched about 2011!

The most amazing thing has happened this past couple of weeks. With my extra time usually used on the computer or printing and packing orders I have actually been able to clean my house! And even better than that, I have been able to hang out with my sweet little munchkins! Oh, lucky LUCKY ME!!!!

We have 2 fun, rambunctious little boys, ages 4 and 2. And as many of you know, we have a baby on the way too! Yesterday was the all important ultrasound to find out the gender of our next little sweetheart.

We are having a. . . . .


Ha haha hahaha. If I wasn't already laying down I would have fallen over when they told me. I was absolutely convinced that this was a girl.
I was dreaming about making hair bows, tutus, fluffy dresses, and all the other girly stuff. I was soooo ready for a girl. *sigh*

But. . .
I'm not in charge.

I must be doing an OK job raising my boys because God is trusting me with another son! After a few ours of complete shock, (but only a few minutes of dissapointment) I am so excited about our little boy!

I am packing, moving, shuffling all of my shop supplies and furniture to make room for our baby. He will be residing in my office.  Once the dust settles and I figure out where I'm going to put everything I will re-open once more before my new baby boy arrives!!

Blessings come in all shapes and sizes and my greatest blessing for 2011 will be here in May!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope your year is filled with love and joy!
