Make it Happen Mondays #1 - Maximize your closet space - Part One -

Hello, Hello, Hello!!!

I am super duper excited to start a new series on the blog. 
Make it Happen MONDAYS
(need to work on a button, so you can grab one)

Here's what I'm working on this week :
  • My closet
  • My moms closet
  • Linen closet
This is my moms closet!
Can you tell how packed her closet was? You would not believe how much stuff she had crammed in there. I don't know how she did it, but she managed to combine three closets full of clothes into one. It's no wonder she yelled frantically last week when the shelf started coming off the wall, ooops. I'm only surprised it didn't come crashing down sooner.

My closet may not have shelves falling down, but the amount of usable space was minimal. I had to fix that asap. After starting on my moms closet, my head was buzzing with all kinds of ideas. 

I would like to finish the closets up this week. I did not paint them, or do anything pretty, but I did find a way to MAXIMIZE the amount of usable space in both closets, and am pretty darn happy with the results. 

You want to know what this new series is about???

Well I have come to realize that I need to take my blog back to what originally worked for me, not to mention what got me started to blog in the first place. Cleaning, and Organizing seem to be an endless battle for me, one which I hope to win with the help of my blog, and my readers of course. Without the motivation and encouragement I get from you, I don't know if I could do it.

I love Mondays, it's a new start to a new week, and a new list of things to do. Anybody else love making lists? I get the biggest kick out of it, and every week I have such high hopes of getting tons of stuff done. However I'm lucky if I get even one or two things done from my long list, that can have up to twenty items on it, he he. I've accepted this reality and plan to be much more realistic with my weekly goals, and even my daily ones. I just need to pick ONE or TWO projects to work on, and MAKE IT HAPPEN, no matter what. 

This is where:
Make it Happen MONDAYS
Helps me get it done, and will hopefully help you too. 

I will be giving you sneak peaks throughout the week on what I'm working on, and THEN.....

I will start posting another new series:
Finally Finished FRIDAYS
Where you guessed it, I will show you stuff that I Finally Finished. Naturally the goal here is to post on Mondays with things I want to get done that week, and on Fridays show you the results. 

I'm really super excited, and have the best feeling that this is going to work really well for me. 

I'm thinking of the best way I'd like to do the new link party, because I'm sure many of you need all the help you can get too. How fun it will be to get inspiration from each other :)

Ok, so that's it for now, I hope you are as excited as I am..... this is going to be so much fun!!

Come back tomorrow for some sneak peaks!!

Make it Happen MONDAY

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, and baking. In fact my mother and I have been making cakes for over 30 years. I also love gardening, traveling, and all things crafty. I struggle daily to keep my like organized, along with my never ending battle to keep the house clean. I adore my three kids MOST of the time, and can usually be found doing the mom thing from morning till night. I try to catch a few mommy moments, but those are hard to find in this wonderful life of mine. I am blessed and happy, and am thrilled you stopped by today :)
