52 | 2012 - On the Shelf

I can't seem to get it together lately! My life is going 90 million miles an hour in 6 different directions!  I had planned to get some shots of my girls new shelves that I put up, but their room has been a disaster for days now!  Then I thought of the really awesome shelves I am building but they are not even close to being completed (read:bout supplies for yet still in garage.)  So you get an old photo inspired by Michelle. 

06.08.10 That Girl
Mom: "Samantha please go clean your room"
Sam: "MOOOMMMMM"
Mom: "NOW!!!"
Sam: (stomps off to room)
1 hour later
Mom " Sam, I asked you to clean, what have you been doing in here for the past hour?"
Sam: I organized my books by color!

So purdy. And organizing books by colour? She's a girl after my own heart. :)

Michelle said...

By color is the best way. For sure. :)

It's okay to let some things go when life gets too crazy. :) Do what you can and what's most important. Let go of the stuff that can wait (dusting, sweeping, fancy dinners). :) Life is seasons.

Ha, what is it with organizing by color!?
My daughter does the same thing, and would have done the same at the suggestion of cleaning her room. I organize my closet by color, but my books by author.

I know. I hope we get out tonight for shelves, too! It's a rainy day & house projects are never ending.

i love organizing by colors, too! ;)

I love this!! The narrative perfect! Kids are awesome. And yep I tried to carve out tone for linking and ended settling for a Thursday night wing it. Next week right? :)

Doesn't it make you feel so organized when the books are organized?! At least she was being productive! :)

Messy for DAYS? Try WEEKS. It's a sad state of affairs over here and how am I dealing with it tomorrow?

we're going to the Zoo.

And on another note, I've ALWAYS wanted to organize my books by color - I love the idea and it would take my just as long. If not longer... :)
