Finding the chic in everyday life

I love eating, cooking, crafting, zumbaing, ice skating, and lots of other randomness.

First generation organic.

Since December 2008, I've lost 15 lbs and I hope to continue my healthy habits of nutritious eating + frequent, fun exercising.

Oooh. I love organizing.

Be sure to post the "after" pics! And don't be embarassed - most people just like to show the clean version of their house.

You wanna see messy before/after shots of my office? 99% of the time, it hovers somewhere between both extremes.

We need pics of the crafts room!!


At least Bailey found a place to lay down! :)


HAHAHAHHAHAHAHHA...... .... oops...I shouldn't be doing that...I am definitely not the neat freak. BUT...I did already do some major decluttering and re-organizing and I'm feeling kinda smug about it. Yep...soon as you're done you will feel smug me on this one...

Craft room...craft room...craft room!! no..don't show it...I know how embarrassing it can be...I actually did mine before the holiday and it is already showing signs of returning to pre holiday mess...but, not quite...

Oh...and meant to say about "togs"'s just a synonym for clothes... a word our Mum used to use...maybe it is Olde Englishe..cuz she was....

good luck trying to get even half of "the list" accomplished set out quite a lot there...


I am a compulsive hoarder. I lived with piles of papers and stacks of clothes and bills and magazines and stuff for TEN YEARS. I know! 10 years. It took being threatened with eviction for me to clear out. But, I did it. I did it! And blogged each step of the way. I must admit to falling off the wagon...luckily, I've had friends offer to come help me.
You can do it!


If you saw my house, it would make you feel 100% better! It's much more cluttered and disorganized than yours, so don't feel bad. I used Monday's holiday to try and de-clutter like you did and did the living room first. It's not easy working, commuting, cleaning, cooking and trying to stay healthy all at once. Whew!
