A rambling collection of my thoughts about life, my children and crafty things

Fabulous on a budget aka photos of shame

on July 19, 2011

I’ve been thinking about the challenge to do something to make yourself feel fabuolous each week. I never really plan it as such and then get to the end of the week and feel like I’ve failed it. I also use the excuse that I’ve run out of money, its the end of the month etc etc. I have decided to try something diffierent this week.

I’ve sat and thought about what bothers me day to day and what I can simply and easily sort and change. I think just resolving a few niggles would make me feel fabulous so here we go with a weeks trial.

My skin is really bad at the moment. I never take time to do any ‘beauty’ routine as such (I haven’t the time!) so this week I will cleanse, tone and moisturise daily to see if it makes any difference.

Our house and its untidiness infuriates me. Flylady makes me feel woefully inadequate but at times I think she rambles sense. I’ve decided to tackle three areas that wind me up on a daily basis. They make my heart sink whenever I see them. I’ve taken photos to a) shame myself b) motivate me to tidy them and keep them clear.

My side of the bed (Steven’s is no better – its not just me!)

The ironing basket that never gets emptied and a bag of unfinished craft projects that it attracted


So then, my name is Karen and I have a clutter problem.


I hope to have fabulous progress pictures next week!

    Are you sure that’s not my side of the bed? I’m terrible.

    SO glad it is not just me. I have piles of books, socks (not clean), papers… assorted scary what nots all piled to the side of the bed. I make a path or jump over it sometimes.

    My husband and I have a war over cleaning. The vacuum has been in the kitchen eating area for 2 weeks staring us down. He thinks I will break and vacuum. He is wrong.
