Mini-Martha Stewart lives here...

I am not talking about me...but my daughter!!

It all started while my daughter was visiting her grandparents without mom and dad (for the first time). I decided while she was gone to do some serious cleaning out in her room. Her room use to be the guest room and I still had 1/2 of her closet as storage, I had not rotated clothes out of her room, and just stuff EVERYWHERE!

This is a BEFORE picture of her closet...see our clothes take up half of the space...


I do not have any AFTER pictures...because I am not a good organizer and it did not look like Martha Stewart had dropped by...why bother.

We arrived home on Sunday from picking up my daughter and by Monday after "Quiet Time" Her room was even MORE organized and beautiful...

This shelf use to have books on it but on Monday it is for displaying...


The books from the shelf moved to her closet on a shoe shelf (that was sitting in a Garage Sale basket)


FINALLY...

She rolled all of her clothes in her draws...


Even her underwear was rolled...


I have a Mini-Martha Stewart living in my home and I had no idea. She kept her room so organized for about a week....

Then 2 nights ago my Mini-Martha Stewart went Manic...


At 12AM this is what I found... I was in such shock, I did not care if I woke her up (as any good mother would) I took pictures...what in the world happened????

The shelf was back to the way is was before...


And her drawers were empty...

I asked her the next morning what happened...her response?????
"It wasn't quite right, but then I got tired...I will work on it again today"

Are you kidding me??? I have created a monster...

That's hilarious. Wish my kids would get some Martha influence!

I guess I'm Manic Martha all the time! Did you have to help her put her room back or did she do it all on her own? I have to say you have created a Mini- Maridith!

Love this!! It made me smile...especially the part where you said my "mini-Martha Stewart went manic". That made me laugh out loud. Too cute!
