This is what my office looks like pretty much on a daily basis. this is my desk...papers and stuff and whatever else i put on the desk. the funny thing is I can tell you where everything is. I clean it up and within an hour or two...CLUTTER! I just don't get it. Remember the post about Makenna's room awhile back I am really starting to think she gets it from me. Shhhh- don't tell Ed!
Okay another shot...This is where I create and kit anything and everything. It actually is pretty picked up at the moment. If you look closely there is a picture of my CHA class. I will say this probably is one of my very favorite projects I get to teach.
Now the sewing areaThis is not all my messyness again... is that a word?? The mock up gals use this area too.
All this clutter is even starting to get on my nerves. I am guessing I probably should take an hour or so and pick things up. But then I ask myself why? I can just ignore it. I really don't have the time right now to clean it up and to be quite honest I work better in a cluttery area... go figure!
That my friends is what I tell myself when I walk into my office every week! Thank goodness I don't share space with anyone!!
I have so much to do and not a lot of mojo to get it done. Last day of school is tomorrow and I still have one more teacher gift to make, wrap and get to our room mom. This is the first year that I wasn't real involved in the PTA etc. and I will have to admit it was nice but I do miss the relationships and I feel like I am missing out on things. I really am not but you know how it goes. I was just enough involved that it didn't over run my life. I will be at the Jaxon's school tomorrow for the last day activities. My baby after tomorrow will be a 5th grader...say it isn't so. Such a cliche but time flies! I really do enjoy that the kids are older though. With that comes some freedom for Ed and I and we are not tired! I watch some of my friends with toddlers and just watching them I get tired.
I better get...gifts to make and clutter to ignore!

I want to show you this cool chore chart I made a few months back that I can now let you all see. It is in the paper crafts kids projects magazine. It is coming out in September so be sure to pick one up when it comes out. There are some great ideas in it.
I used my favorite Mambi paper the leopard print and then our chalkboard letter stickers and our boys will be boys soft spoken for this project. It was super easy. The clipboard I had to take apart and move the actual chip. Nothing a screwdriver can't fix! This is a great tip. When looking for things to alter make sure to step out of the box and see if you can change things up by just moving something in a different direction or simply getting a screwdriver and changing things up. Don't let little details make you sweat!
What do I do on Wednesdays...Wednesdays are a very sacred day to me. I try not to go into the office at all costs. Wednesdays are my bible study day! Our group has been together for I think 5 years. Maybe more??? Some of us have been together since our MOPS days. Which means 13 years! Yikers! The reason I don't miss a study well for one it is at my house and secondly,these women are my rocks and inspiration!These women are some of the smartest, godly, loyal, beautiful,loving women EVER. We have been through everything you can think of. Money issues, house issues, substance abuse, dorky and that is being nice ex-husband issues, court battles, teenagers, and an adoption. That is just to name a few. Sounds like a very dysfunctional group. But really just life! We not only study the Word together we pray together and laugh and do we ever laugh! I feel safe when I am around them! Not very many people are blessed to have 10 women in their life that truly love you for you! Yesterday was our end of the year brunch. We do that a lot...EAT! We love to Eat! Veronica has just moved only about a month ago and when you walk into her home it looks like she has been there for years! Just beautiful! She has a knack for decorating and hospitality! We love going to her home! So we break for the summer but that doesn't mean we don't get together. We just now meet at the beach or a dinner or two. It is funny since our kids are getting older we just may have a beach day or two where it will be just us! Crazy! Wanted to give you all a glimpse into something that I hold very dear in my heart!
I have a couple of deadlines that need to be tended to. Linda and I must get some of our creative mojo going so I better get going!

WOW!!!! Our Me and My Freckle Friends Crop was a success!!!! All the planning and attention to details paid off! It was an awesome day. Meeting new friends and getting together with old. It really went off with out any glitches except for the darn air conditioner but no one complained!
Annie was the third make and take. She is now working for Canon and so she brought this new little printer took pictures of all the ladies and then printed them out so that they could make a layout right then and there. I am telling you we had some awesome contributors for this event.

So this is what one looks like when things start getting crazy around the office!! I have been up and down the upstairs hallway what feels like 100 plus times. Up and down the stairs just as many! It is getting down to the nitty gritty of our big event this weekend. Susan came to help me kit my make and take and get some of our last minute details figured out. We are both so excited and it is going to be a great time for all!!!
Here is a little peak of the make and take I am doing on Saturday. What is funny about this project is it was a banner and then I went to get ribbon down the hallway and they way I was carrying it I realized it would make a cute star.
Here are the kits that are bagged and ready to go!
This is my messy desk with the tags for the bags and a little peak of Wilna's project she made for us for the silent auction.
This is a just a small portion of what will be in the goodie bags and a little peak at Donna Downey's project.
the silent auction is going live sometime tomorrow so check back and I will have it posted with a link. How fun is that. You may not live our area but we thought it would be fun to be able to give you all a chance out there to participate in this event as well. Remember all proceeds are going to Autism Speaks a wonderful charity that is making great strides in the Autism arena.
I gotta get going...i think the chicken might have just found its head!!!
Check back tomorrow for the silent auction!
