AN ORGANIZED MESS!
















Hi Ladies! Well, I am debating, building a ark. How is it going with you? It has poured all week and the winds have been strong. The top cap of my roof has blown off, so that is scheduled to be fixed as soon as the rain lets up. I am hoping by next week. I have only had two small leaks so far. My husband has put a bandaide on it. We are hoping it holds up until the damage can get fixed. I do not know what was worse, worrying about the roof or my husband on the roof. He is not very staple on his legs. (He walks with a cane.) God really has me on a faith walk in more ways than one.

I have been very busy. My dear, sweet, beloved, son, Kyle ran over something on the freeway. His car is fairly new. He is not even sure what it was he hit, however, the whole transmission has to be replaced. I have been dealing with the insurance all week long. Kyle was fine, just a little upset, he is without a car for a while. He went snowboarding to relax. What a life!

Remember, I told you I am working on my craft room and guess room at the same time? Well, I can see a light at the end of the tunnel with the craft room. These pictures are of that room. I have a roll top desk and another dresser that is still not ready for primetime pictures, but soon. I know it looks messy, but believe me it is organized. I tend to work on the messy side when I am creating, so that explans it. Doesn't it seem that I am always making excuses for myself? Another sign? God help me!

The taxes are all over my bedroom. I can only handle working on them a little at a time. The worse part is my Ebay. I know a lot of people who do not claim their Ebay money, but I do. It takes me forever to get it organized, because I just stuff it in a file all year. You would never guess I use to administate a school. Where did that woman go?

The funny thing is, I like all my drawers to be very organized. I hate to open a messy drawer. I am so weird. Well, I need to go back to my ark plans. The rain seems to be getting worse.

Don't forget, I am having a give away for my one year anniversary. To celebrate, I have planned this give away, that will end January 31, 2010. Since I am a book-a-holic, what would be better than another book? Rachel Ashwell is my favorite designer. This book, The Gift of Giving, I believe is her best! All you have to do is leave a comment, the more you leave the more chances you get. (I love getting to know you.) If you choose to follow, I will give you two extra points and last but not least, if you add my button to your blog, you get three chances. It is just that easy. Just let me know what you have done and Noah and I will do the rest!


Take care of yourselves. Remember you are loved! Martha

Oh, Martha. You are so humorous, and you don't even try to be! I always get a chuckle from reading your sweet blog. I'm sorry to hear about the car mishap. Poor Kyle. And oh Lord, I heard about all the rain you guys are having. I hope that husband will be careful on the roof. Oh Lord, that would scare the boots off of me. Take care, dear Martha. You are such a good soul. Warmly, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

I can't work in a mess at all so I am a bit obsessive about my studio. It has to be organized and clean! It's raining here too..AND freezing cold!

Where is Spring? *sigh*

Love,

I have organized messes all over the place plus a lot of disorganization mixed in there. Slowly trying to get it under control. It's 5 steps forward, one step back! Sorry to hear about your roof problem, but at least you know it will be fixed fairly soon. Hope the bandaids work until then. We had rain a couple of days ago -- thankfully not hard enough for the kids ceiling to leak again. Sorry to hear about the car problems too. Insurance here isn't even worth it but everyone has to have it. My car needs a bandaid as it still hasn't been fixed. Aggravating! Take care and have a great weekend. Try to relax and get some rest. Blessings, Tammy

Martha, I am a very messy crafter! I have a huge table to work on and I always end up working in a tiny little space that is left! This is probably why my husband built me shelves....
I am almost done with my room. I want to make curtains before I post photo's.
We certianly could host a Tea cup Tuesday, that is a great idea! When should we start? How would you like to do this?
Have a grand weekend : )
Hugs,
Terri
