When is to early to decorate?

Well, it has been a few days since the last tip and I am not sure how I'm doing with this blog idea but I am enjoying it so for now I will keep blogging. Anyway here is a question for early is to early to decorate for Christmas? Christmas is by far my most favorite time of the year. From the smells of Christmas to family togetherness and the celebration of Jesus' birth, I love it all. According to my husband what makes Christmas so special is the fact that you anticipate it all year and it comes and you celebrate and then its gone. You cherish the short season of Christmas. Well to me on the other hand I don't feel that way. Let me just tell you I already have my Christmas trees up. I am not completly done decorating but everything I could get out of the attic on my own I have gotten, but I have to wait until Novemeber 1st for help from my husband. Back to the question how early is to early to decorate?
All that to say as I prepared for setting up each Christmas tree I had to make sure each room was clean first. It would of drove my crazy to put up a Christmas tree in the middle of a messy room. This is how I like to go about cleaning a room. It really works if you need to clean really good or just touch up. First I start at the very begining of the room, where you first step your foot in. I just pick up anything that is out of place or scrub from that starting point and move throughout the room that way. It kinda gives me a start and finish point. Silly I know but I like specific detail instruction, although I HATE to read instructions I'd rather look at something and figure it out on my own. If that makes any sense at all, I guess it works best for me to have begining and an end to cleaning a room. So for now hope that makes your heart happy as you clean today. Oh and as soon as I figure out my camera I'll post some Christmas tree pictures.

What's under your bed?

Please bare with me through this blogging experience. I'm not really sure if I should post every day or every other day. Anyway I was thinking of the last post and I thought this helpful tip may help you along with making the bed. Well, here it you know what is under your bed? I know nobody ever sees under your bed but if I have stuffed stuff under my bed I know it and it bothers me. I try to keep things very minimal under the bed. At the moment under our bed is 3 storage boxes one for each child and one for me to save things I think the may want when they get older. Also there is a bedspread set for when I get tired of the one that is on my bed and want to change the look of our room. It also helps for rearranging which I like to do a lot b/c you never really realize how dirty under your bed can get until you go to move around the furniture and it looks like you haven't cleaned in years. Anyway hope that tip will be helpful to you and make you happy. So lets go organize and clean under our beds! I know this post would be much more enjoyable with pictures...bare with me. Thanks so much.

Welcome to A Happy Heart

Okay I finally decided to start a blog, hope you enjoy. I'm not good with correct grammer, spelling, etc... but hopefully you will get the idea. There are so many thoughts that go through my head and so many things I'd love to share with others so that is why I decided to try blogging. I mainly started this blog to help those out in blogging world have a happy heart about something I absolutely love and that is cleaning. I know that is odd to most but I love to clean. Oh and lets not forgot organizing I love that too! Until I can figure how to get my camera linked to my computer to post pictures I won't be much help but I will do my best. So what can you clean today?
Each day, even if my house is in a complete mess I find it most helpful to start in the bedroom. If the bed is not made my entire day is a mess. Yes weird I know, but I at least do my best to get the bed made, even if it is one of those days that the bed doesn't get made until the day is almost over I still try to make it! That way at least one area is clean and tidy and you can work from that. It also doesn't help for me that the front door looks directly into the bedroom. Well, I guess that is a good thing, gives me more motivation to get it done quickly in the morning. Hope this was helpful and please stick with me as I learn the ends and outs of blogging!
