They were my brothers and my favorites growing up and for whatever reason, the book "The Berenstain Bears and The Messy Room" is one that always stuck with me (we also had the book on tape version.)
My craft room/the guest room has been a candidate for Mama Bear's rage lately. With a few craft shows, little time and other excuses, the craft room became the messy room.
And I feared that the mess, as it seeped out of the room and into other parts of the house, would turn the husband into a Mama Bear-box totin' guy threatening to throw everything out. He confessed earlier this week that the mess was stressing him out a little bit. **
I don't think I blame him.
So on Saturday I took the plunge. Turned on some music, piled my hair into a bun and began to sift through the insanity.
The end result?
A clean craft room, a spic n' span guest room that is a tad, well, inspiring.
*This is important: how do you pronounce Berenstain? "Bear-en-steen" or "Burn-steen." This is a silly argument in which both the husband and I believe that we're right. We even watched an episode on YouTube and it didn't help.
**please not that I am not a messy person. I always do the dishes, clean the bathroom once a week and clean laundry only piles up
