My house is a mess and I don't mean messy - I mean total disaster.  To kick off my own personal celebration of cleaning Cleanfest May 2008. During the entire month of May I will take a journey through the niches of my little house to get it to sparkle. 

Each week I will focus on the different areas of my home to clean, purge, and make it sparkle like new.

 I invite everyone to join me in Cleanfest May 2008 where we will get our homes clean together.  Whether you have to completely clean from the floor to ceiling or just want to tackle a section in your home to get it to sparkle again here is the place to start. I have set up a Flickr Group Cleanfest May 2008 where we can upload our before and after photo along with some of your cleaning best practices in the posting section. Along the way I will give some of my cleaning inspiration tips to keep you motivated and charged. 

Through our encouragements and comments we will get our homes clean together so get ready to clean. 

Week 1 May 1st - 7th  Bathroom

Happy cleaning - Tissuepaper


I got to visit - really just stand out side of the building -  the studio where Martha Stewart tapes her show and let me tell you I had so excited. I am her biggest fan and I refer to her just as Martha to all of my friends and they know who I am talking about. Now I didn't really get to do much other then take few pictures of me proceeding to the building almost documenting the my steps.   Here are a few of my pictures.

    I stood at the entrance and looked in -  I was like a kid in a candy store - mouth drooling. There was a man setting at a desk on the other side smiling at me, so I waved wildly and mouthed " we love Martha" to him and he started laughing. He must have thought Jewelfaerie and I were just another set of crazy fans. She pulled on the door to see if it would open and it was locked however the man behind the counter was laughing at us so much that he buzzed us in. We got to go in - talk about total excitement! That was one of the highlights of my trip. He gave us a flier to the show where I asked did the page actually come from Martha's own copy machine and  he laughed again and shook his head at me. We were not allowed to take any pictures from inside -  Now I can sleep soundly knowing that all is well at Martha Stewart's studio. 

I was so excited to see that I was one of the winners for the Dabbled Aprils Fools contest. My best friend Fewelfaerie and I were in NYC for the weekend and when I got home to check my email - I saw that I was one of the winners! I entered my Severed Ear Earring Holder ! I will receive a original drawing from Dot at Dabbled.org. She has some amazing art illustrations on her blog and participates in a site called Illustration Fridays - defiantly check out her blog.

There were also guest judges for the contest and they were:
Alice of Futuregirl
