So I did a lot of cleaning this past week and I wanted to share a bit of it with you. I finally went through all my sewing supplies and found some great stuff. I got a box full of fun sewing supplies from my Aunt and hadn't had the chance to organize them all yet, so I grabbed the box of stuff and the two drawers out of my sewing machine table and laid them all out.

After filtering and re-storing I had everything properly sorted! I even pulled out my old sewing basket to store all my "quick-fix" sewing items for fixing buttons and small holes.

I also did the silliest thing that made such a difference in our kitchen...

...I tossed a hook under the sink to hang our cleaning cloth to dry.

What is it about cleaning and organizing our place that is just so much fun to me? I'm sure it has lots to do with the fact that it's the first place that I actually own. It's so nice to know we have a space that's all ours to do what we want with and I want to make it as home-y as possible. When it's a relatively small space the littlest things make the biggest difference!

Everyone that has come to visit so far has said that the space is actually much bigger than they thought from the pictures so I'm wondering if maybe I should try my hand at a little video blog to see if I can give those of you who won't be able to visit for a while a better look at the place. I'll keep you posted if I can get a good video taken if you're interested in seeing it.

Hope that you are having some organizing fun of your own. =)
