Organizing and Purging!!

I'm excited to have some motivation to get my house organized and decorated for Megan's wedding reception this fall. (My niece asked me if she could have a wedding reception at our home when they come home from Canada where they are going to get married.  Of course I was delighted to have the chance to buy pumpkins and decorate, but....  I have a lot of sprucing up to do before then!   My soap kitchen/project room and space where everything goes that doesn't have a place of its own is the first thing on my list to get organized.  It will be the area where we will keep the extra food and mess during the reception so that my kitchen doesn't look like a warehouse while people are milling around! 

It seems one thing always leads to another, I have gone through most all the cupboards and cabinets in my project room and am now working on the visual surfaces.  I really need to work in the basement also!  Here is one area that I have finished!  I took a photo quick before it became cluttered again.  I want to work very hard to keep it clutter free forever!  I thought you would be impressed after seeing the "before" photo!

 Also on my list of "to do" projects is to paint and update, refurbish our master bathroom.  I thought that was going to happen this past weekend but I got a stomach thing that is going around and basically was worth nothing all weekend.  But stay tuned for the progress on that project.

This weekend Molly, Matt and Lila will be visiting so the project will be put on the back burner again....if I can't think of a way to procrastinate the following weekend, I might get to it then!

Keep me accountable people!  I want to get the house in shape before the big day in October!
