Party Time!!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2012

The Messy Nest was feeling a little left out, so I decided to let this little space in the blogosphere join the party!!  Also, it's a new blog and there may be people out there who are struggling with similar issues- organization and clutter and would like to join my crusade for an ORGANIZED AND PEACEFUL HOME!!  So if that is you- Welcome!  If it isn't you- Welcome! and please give us advice and encouragement- because we need it!  Just don't judge- God gave us all different gifts.

Well, back to the party.  I'm Jen.  Just in case you haven't met me over at my other blog... Creative and Curious Kids!  I have three messy kiddos and one messy husband.  Add them to one somewhat scattered and disorganized wife/mom and you have one Messy Nest!  Here's what motivated me to start this blog...

http://the-messy-nest.blogspot.com/2012/03/welcome-to-messy-nest.html


A couple of interesting (messy) facts about our home...
*Our diningroom is a classroom,too.  We use it to cyberschool our children.  School papers, supplies, and more....lots to organize! (Take a peek at all of the supplies behind us in our family pic.)
*Laundry is a major weekness- I don't remember if I was ever caught up.  Working on purging the clothes and focusing on clothing necessities.  Oh yeah, and we have issues with socks- where on Earth do the mates go? 
*Our bedroom is supposed to be a place of serenity right, well ours is a disaster and looks like a storage room.  Cannot wait to bring peace and quiet the clutter in this space! 
* Children's books can be found in every room in the house.  Love books!!!  Need bookcases and to only keep our favorites.

Hope you'll come back to see Before and Afters, to find out what organizing tips work for me, my progress, and more!! 

Enjoy the party!
Jen

Hi! I love the name of your blog. I can't wait to read your organizing ideas. I could definitely use the help myself!

I am stopping by from the UBParty. It is my first and I am enjoying a chance to visit so many wonderful blogs like yours. I hope you will be able to stop by and say "Hi!" ~ http://librarystorytimeabcs.blogspot.com/2012/04/its-party.html

Enjoy your week!

I too am striving towards that organized peaceful home. Technically we home educate all over the house, town and county, but keeping things all together is a real problem.

I look forward to your journey as a new follower!

Happy UBP and have a wonderful week!

Stopping by from UBP12.
I know I am going to love your blog, it strikes a chord in many of us :)
I am also glad to find another fairly new blog because I was feeling pretty bad about the lack of posts at my blog aproverbs31wife.com :)
Oh well, I am subscribed now and will definitely be checking back often.
Cheers!

Those facts could have been written by me....except the cyber school, but our dining room is currently full of Lego projects, art projects, school work, etc.

Hi! I'm stopping by from the UBP - belatedly because my week was just insane so I had no time before now to visit anyone - and am so glad to "meet" you. I am a homeschooler who writes about our home learning journey as well as other things. Hope you'll stop by: http://tinahollenbeck.blogspot.com/2012/04/2012-ultimate-blog-party.html.
