2015 - Where did 2014 go!?

Out with the old, In with the New!

 This year, in September, I became a Gramma again - to IDENTICAL TWIN boys!  James and Andrew (aren't they great names?) were born to our son and his wife and we couldn't be happier.  So, along with these additions, come new things to make - and believe me, I'm not good with baby stuff.  Now, give me some alternative, goth or urban things and I'm fine.  So, I created some onesies and things that were a little off the beaten path, so to speak.

This year, I have assigned myself a few jobs.  I'm to downsize to a one room sewing studio.  Right now, I have my 11x22 sewing room crammed and another guest room pretty much full with the overflow (65 semi-filled bolts of home dec or upholstery fabric that I got for a STEAL last year). 

My other "job" is to create a cleaning schedule for working Moms and Dads who have just bits and pieces of time at the end of each work day to do chores.  I challenged myself this because I think "I" can use it too since my "job" is to sew and sell my wares, so I need to do it all in pieces.  So you might see some of my ideas here on the blog.

And lastly (or probably not) is to get healthy.  I started the "21 day sugar detox" this morning and it's 12:03pm and so far, so good .  It will be the test tonight when I want another glass of wine and I've done my limit for the day.  So, I'm sure my chamomile tea will become my new routine - which isn't a bad routine, and will do me some good.  Wish me luck.......

Organizations/Cleaning for the Working Person

If you have an extra 2 minutes, you can do one of the following:

In the Bathroom:
  1. Take a damp paper towel and wipe down around your bathroom sink to pick up dust and loose hair.
  2. Take a toilet bowl brush and swish around the toilet and under the rim.  Keeps the algae at bay.
  3.  After drying your hands on the handtowel, use it to wipe down the faucet fixtures and make them shine.  Then toss in the laundry and put up a clean towel.  Do this once a week.
  4. In your socks, scuff your feet around the bathroom floor to pick up dust and hair.  Then remove your socks, making sure they're still right side out, and toss in the laundry.

In the Kitchen:
  1. Use the papert owel you just dried your hands on and wipe the front of the dishwasher or oven.
