Getting organized

Captain's Log, Stardate 12.15.2008

I was blogging at Girls, God, and the Good Life yesterday about something I think many of you can relate to:

Camy here, talking about Spring ... er, Winter cleaning.

Yes, my house is SO MESSY that I need to start in Winter to finish my Spring cleaning. Oy!

  1. Hey Camy, my teen daughter commented on Sat that we seem to always do our spring cleaning in Dec, so I hear ya.

    We don't have an attic or basement for storage, but we do have a 20x60 ft metal quonset that is jam packed! We celebrate 32 yrs of marriage this coming Sat and that means 32 years of collecting ju...uh...treasures.

    I mean, we have a 30 yr old sans kids and our youngest is only in Gr 5. Why would be get rid of all the baby paraphenalia now? We might hava a grandbaby soon.

    And yarn? I have boxes...and fabric...too many...in cardboard. Yikes. But we're slowly repacking into plastic.

    We used to be sports fanatics and still have eqpt for almost every sport you can imagine inluding a ping pong table...lumber...hinged bins of overgrown toys... records...exercise eqpt...bins of fixtures from my craft sales...ugh

    I pride myself on my organization but you are stardates ahead of me in that regard.

    For hubby's keychain collection, however, do you want to display it? You could always buy those jewellry display cases. My daughter buys them at 2nd hand stores and uses them to display her beaded jewelry designs.

    Of course, there's always the pegboard with a painted scenic background...

  2. Wow, that's creative! I told Camy on the other blog that I need to get creative with all the paper clutter. Ugh.

If you’re on Facebook, this is their Facebook page , and this is their Facebook group .

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

Year of the Dog serial novel, chapter 5

I’m posting a Humorous Christian Romantic Suspense serial novel here on my blog! Year of the Dog is a (second) prequel to my Warubozu Spa Chronicles series. Year of the Dog serial novel by Camy Tang Marisol Mutou, a professional dog trainer, is having a bad year. While renovating her new dog kenneling and training facility, she needs to move in with her disapproving family, who have always made her feel inadequate—according to them, a job requiring her to be covered in dog hair and slobber is an embarrassment to the family. She convinces her ex-boyfriend to take her dog for a few months … but discovers that his brother is the irate security expert whose car she accidentally rear-ended a few weeks earlier. Ashwin Keitou has enough problems. His aunt has just shown up on his doorstep, expecting to move in with him, and he can’t say no because he owes her everything—after his mother walked out on them, Aunt Nell took in Ashwin and his brother and raised them in a loving Christ
