Giveaway Winner and Day 4 of AEDM

And the winner to my custom portrait giveaway is comment number 12 made by Crystal Escobar from Wanna Be Balanced.   CONGRATULATIONS!!! 

So...as for AEDM (art every day month), It's been slow starting because of that darn organizational guru who had to get me all inspired to do major cleaning/organization around here.  Yesterday I set some unrealistic goals for myself...I was going to clean out and reorganize my walk in closet, get the rest of the room perfect, then have lunch with the kids, then during nap I was going to either paint a trypdict that I've been planning on doing forever to go above my bed...or make the stroller seat cover, then have dinner/play with the kids, go to the gym real quick, come home, after putting the kids to bed, I would do all the ironing and when my husband arrived home from his road trip, everything would be absolutely perfect.  Well....um...WHAT was I thinking?  It went more like this...

I took everything out of the closet, my room looked like a hurricane had gone through with piles of everything everywhere...sorted through things, decided what to keep, what to pack away and what to get rid of, folded everything up, reorganized and made it more fall/winter oriented.  I was only half way through the pile by lunch time.  Then I put the baby down for a nap (in my room) so went and sat on the couch to eat a snack while I waited for him to get into a deeper sleep before starting back up...but I guess I blinked and didn't open my eyes until about 2 hours later when the kids started waking up from naps.  No regrets!  Anyways....I struggled to finish getting the closet put away and besides doing some dishes...nothing else on my list got done...I didn't even get to go online the whole day!!!  lol.  But if you could see my closet now, you would consider it a work of art! ha!  The art of homemaking right?  Am I stretching the rules a bit too much here on this one? 
I'm going to blame my baby boy on my slow progress, he's just so darn cute I had to keep stopping and playing with him and smothering him in kisses as he played around my feet all morning cooing at me!

Okay, well I'm off to get some "art" done today, I'll be back!

Congrats again Crystal, I can't wait to get started on your portrait!

I find organization to be an amazingly creative thing. You create a wonderful space while clearing all those mental blocks away to invite in more creativity.
