clean your house in an hour

Very few of us have the luxury of spending all day a few times a week scouring our house, and during this time of year even if you are those lucky few who get to stay home who wants to spend that much of your time during the holidays cleaning. No thank you. I would rather get my craft on or decorate my home or shop for presents not clean. But it a very necessary evil unless you live in a bubble. Even on our best day here when the kids are in school all day and then we rush off to some sporting practice I still have to run the swiffer to capture all the dog hair and settled dust.

I wish I could take credit for this bit of helpful information but I can not. And since I can not claim this as my own I am posting the link to the website.
The title of the article is "How to clean your house in less than an hour". It breaks down each room allocates time and then gives you steps. Very helpful and as a matter of fact today I am going to put it in play and see how well it stands up.

I know we all have our own routines but give this a try, you just may find it helps and hey more time to craft?? Say it aint so!

OCD Tip #4

OCD Tip #4

When you want to cut dinner prep time in half, bake or boil an entire large package of chicken breasts, then dice them up in two-cup portions and freeze them. When your receipe calls for two cups of chopped chicken you are ready to go!

OCD Tip #3

OCD Tip #3

When your running low on Swiffer Sweeper pads, or if you just want to make them last a bit longer, use BOTH sides! When the first side is dirty and ready to be thrown away flip it over and use it again! Both sides pick up great.
 And they double as a duster! That's right, instead of using all the chemical products just grab a Swiffer Sweeper pad and get to dusting!

My Fall / Halloween Mantle

I am not a huge Halloween fan (gasp) I know I am so sorry! Can I still blog??? I am just not, I love this time of year more than any other, however I am just not over the moon about Halloween. So when decoration for this special holiday you wont see a lot of elaboration at all. I do tons of natural decorating with pumpkins, gourds, pine cones and mums, all that kind of stuff. However when it comes to webs, gooey eyes, witches and blood, not so much.
 But I realize that I have to at lease give a shout out to OCT 31, so here you go!

There you have it ladies and gents, my Halloween mantle A real spook!
Tutorial on banner coming soon!

Cha Cha Cha New Chairs! {Living Room Before/After}

I am excited, ecstatic thrilled, to the moon and why you may ask?! 
Well because we fiiiinally got some new chairs for our living room! Yay chairs!

Our sad little living room did look like this...note the sad empty spaces by the fireplace...wa wa wa

We had been holding out for the perfect chairs that were the perfect price...haha what a laugh. After 2 1/2 years I was beginning to thing the two did not go hand in hand. Finally last week we got a call from my mother in law who was getting rid of her chairs, she was looking for something different and just happened to remember me saying "Wow your chairs would look great in MY house..." Thank you MOM!
Perfect chairs for the perfect price ~ FREE! 

So now my living room is happy and looks like this

A few more pillows, small table, and  some kind of unique coffee table and I think we will be done! (for now...)

In case your curious about the chair fabric and pattern here is a close up, 
its a chenille fabric and I love the pattern!
