Crystal’s Monday Making Your Home a Haven is here.
I know just the space I’m going to tackle today, in my laundry room I have a pile of ironing that is needing my attention! I just had a thought of giving the girls a job of cleaning up their closet too. So I’ll be back later with some pictures and more about our day here.
Ok, another Monday is coming to an end here. The older ones are all tucked into bed and baby is here sitting on my lap. She is content and happy to watch my fingers move. 🙂
I was able to tackle the ironing pile and get everything ironed and hung in their closets. Feels so good to have that done, now I must work on staying caught up.
Here is a before picture. We have a small room in the basement that serves as our laundry and sewing room, plus I do the ironing there and the freezer sits in there as well. So it is a multi purpose room!
After picture…. looks so much better. I have a bunch of material out, because I need to iron it. We are having a sewing bee here on Sunday to sew up some summer clothes for my girls! Should be fun!! I need to sometime soon go through and organize that shelve above the freezer….
Girl’s closet before….
It was a pretty good day here. School went well and in the afternoon I had time to organize a bit in the laundry room, sew some buttons on a couple of jumpers I sewed for baby and clean up the kitchen. While sewing I had a toddler at my elbows trying to watch the machine sew. He was cheerily singing away in his own toddler talk. So sweet! Also while I was cleaing up the kitchen, my 5 yr old helped me by putting the dishes away in the dish drainer. He had an enjoyable time chatting with me. Times like these, I’m remind on how much the children do like to help momy and plus it gives them a chance to chat with mommy. I must not push them away and think I can do it so much faster by myself! That is something I still trying to unlearn…..
Blessings to you as you make your home a haven!
