Friends:

The past few days have been spent doing 3 things – office work, a new blog project (Eliana Cooks!) with my 8 year old daughter, and organizing the mess that Hurricane Gustav caused.

When we evacuated, we weren’t sure if we were going to come back to the same house. So we packed as much as we could take in the event we had to “start over” (again) so to speak. We were fortunate that our area didn’t have the flooding that was expected. We moved furniture, elevated important items and took pictures off the walls. It left our house a disheveled, disorganized mess. So I started in the bedroom. Look at the shameful shoes above! It gave me an excuse to get some new organizing tools. Check out my new shoe rack now!

I then moved on to unpacking my suitcases and putting my clothing away. Check out my hosiery drawer now…

My large collection of purses needed taming too. This 4 canvas drawer unit works perfect. The canvas boxes are deep and fit purses of all sizes.

Next, I tackled MY side of the closet. I bought the best hangers. They are slim and have a non-slip velour coating on them. Talk about fantastic!

I moved on to Eliana’s room and unpacked her as well. She’s great at keeping her room clean. She folds her own clothes and always keeps her drawers and closet organized. Of course, my work is never finished. My husband hasn’t yet unpacked. You should see HIS side of the closet. I’m going to have to sneak in there (with a big garbage bag) when he’s not looking…

On the career side, my website is also undergoing a “facelift.” My header is being refreshed and pictures are changing. My website is going to look like the girl pretty girl who just got a fabulous new hairdo and a dynamite dress. The Story Connection Express newsletter is also undergoing a huge change. And I owe it all to my webmaster, Heidi Hafner. Go ahead and take a bow…

Here’s a sneak peek —

Loving the changes! Until next time…
