Here is a picture of the items from my sweet family. The DVD you have already seen, but the Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate was from Big T, the Cacao Reserve was from Sweet E, and the Alan Jackson CD was from Hubby and Little E. And...another part of my birthday was the snow! It was so beautiful. It's just too bad that late in the day and through the afternoon it turned to rain/sleet. Oh well...it is snowing again. :D Blessings to all. I pray that you have a happy and safe week!

"I am giving us an opportunity every Monday to not only count our blessings, but to share them with others. This is a way that we can encourage one another. Make a post on your blog telling us about your blessing. Please put a link back to this post. You can add the URL of your blog post on Mr. Linky below. Many of our blessings we will have pictures of and we can share those as well. I think that many times we forget that it is a blessing to be able to breath, to get out of bed, to hold a baby... Share your blessings with us. They encourage others. We can share so many other things.... special gifts, recipes, let's take the time to share how God has blessed us!! -Marci"

I should probably answer the questions now. :D
1. What was the hardest part of the challenge for you and were you able to overcome it?
The hardest part of the challenge for me was just taking the time to get it done. With three children I am very busy. Another difficult part of the challenge was just the area. I would prefer my sewing/crafting area to be out of the way of traffic, but it just isn't possible in this home. But I think I did a wonderful job compromising what I needed with the space and circumstances.
2. Tell us what kind of changes/habits you have put into place in order for your area/room to maintain its new order?
I (my family is also included in this) am making conscience effort to put things back where they are supposed to be. For so long I would get something out and just not put it back. That was the biggest problem before. I have more motivation to keep it cleaned up now because I need to be a good example for my children on how to care for their possessions and how to keep a home looking like a home and not a pigsty. :D
3. What did you do with the “stuff” you were able to purge out of your newly organized space?
It went into the trash! :o)
4. Now that you have completed the challenge, do you think having and keeping your space organized will make a difference in your life?
It will make a huge difference in my life. I make 75% of Sweet E's clothing, 50% of my own, and I sew for my boys as well. Not to mention the fact that I am trying to get the children ready for piano lessons. Now we can start since they can actually get to the piano!
6. Why do you think you should win the challenge?
I think I should win the challenge because I worked very hard to make a space that is not only user friendly to myself, but my family as well. My sewing area is easily accessible, we have a place to sit and read together (the children and I), and my family can start learning how to play the piano. There is so much more I would like to do with my sewing area, but as I mentioned before, funds are limited. I think my creativity should win this challenge. I mean....how many other people use diaper boxes to help them organize. ;)
