    Jeannie and Melinda came over today to help me get out of my own way. Jeannie should be a general! They helped me take a room that you couldn't even walk through and organize and sort it. I have another room like that, and more to go, but these two totally rocked my world!

    This board is one of the best things that has happened to me in recent history.

    THANK YOU JEANNIE AND MELINDA!

    I was feeling like a candidate for "Hoarders" and couldn't fight my way clear. Jeannie is amazingly organized and a dynamo- all you have to do is follow her directions! I love it. And Melinda and I just did as we were told- and all three of us had a great time. (Although I bet we all have backaches tonight and tomorrow.)

    Hazeljane, I know the feeling. I'm doing my purging right now and it's been such an overwhelming job. Hoarders could have filmed my room too!! :D
    I am really liking it better now that I'm beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
    What is wrong with us fabriholics??? hee hee

    Take your Advil and enjoy your new room!! :D

    PS. On top of everything else I'm completely disorganized and scatterbrained lol

    My best friend is a professional organizer. But she is in Massachusetts. (If anyone needs an organizer in MA/CT, let me know- she totally rocks)

    I was considering hiring someone, and Jeannie volunteered. And worked for fabric and friendship. Gotta love that.

    I could use them here. Not far from Oklahoma. LOL. I think Grannyp70 is going to help me. I think I move things from one side of the room to the other and then back again. Of course I do get a bag emptied once in a while. Never let it get like that again. I keep the door closed I am so embarassed. Talking about my sewing room that I can't sew in yet. LOL

    Does anyone else think it's easier to clean other people's houses? I'm great at cleaning other people's houses, but my own house is a tornado. Just wondering...

    I'd rather clean someone else's house. I hate cleaning mine. :)

    It was all kinds of fun helping Hazeljane ( maggie). Yes I can be a general at times when I am organizing but Hey atleast me got ALOT done!
    Maggie gave both Melinda and I lots of goodies from her stash and some lovely lavender water and lavender eye bags.

    I love "general" type personalities. I'm not someone who needs to be in control, and I appreciate when someone is better able to see the big picture and direct.

    When my daughter was a little girl, we once went to Disney World with my in-laws. My mother-in-law was known as General Grandma. I didn't have to worry or plan anything- I knew we would see everything there was to see- because she planned it out, allowing me to just relax and enjoy the ride. One of the best vacations ever.

    I know lots of people get their backs up, but for me, it's totally great, so when I call Jeannie a general- it's a high compliment!

    I'm sewing in the family because my sewing room and playroom are clogged with fabrics. I want to know how wide the throat on my Kenmore machine is - how can I get to it? The playroom also has Christmas gifts and my walker and wheelchair I'm trying to get along without. Help! It all takes up so much space.

    I am FINALLY almost done with organizing the "guest" room--someone could actually use it now! I have three more boxes of miscellany to sort, and one box of fabric to put away by color into the totes.....I store the 23 totes(yep,23 -fabric, lace, ribbons, quilt tops, etc.) in the guest room and sew in the room next to it. Got that room cleaned up, too.
    The rest of the house is a near-disaster, but that one room is nearly done.
    Tomorrow I have vowed to finish finding the dining room--at least the table is clean now except for a neighbors sewing machine I am working on....
    I did clean up almost all of the living room after I moved all the sewing stuff out, but now it has 25 boxes of stuff for Operation Noel.....got it inventoried, now to start wrapping, etc.! Much of it is going to local families in need and to the prison for offender's children.
    and I got the cupboards cleaned out in the kitchen--and the closets and drawers cleaned out in the bedroom. HMMMM--after I write it all out, I HAVE been busy! Now I feel better!
