Some Other Unique Posts :0)
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had the “Campbell’s… mmm-mmm good” sang to me since I’ve been married, especially from teenage boys I was teaching… yeah, good times there… Usually when I’m trying to spell my name on the phone, I tell them, “It’s like the soup!” because apparently “Campbell” is a difficult name to spell??? Who knows… anyway, this page is basically here to organize my other random posts that you might be interested in. If they don’t fall under those other page categories, then you might find them here.
Organization: If you know me at all, it won’t take you long to figure out that I am pretty much obsessed with organizing things and making sure everything has a “place.” I don’t like clutter, I don’t like junk, and I like things to look nice and be easily accessible! I am not a procrastinator, at least not very often, and I think organization is really important to have an efficient home, or really to be efficient in any part of your life. (And yes, I will admit that there are lots of productive people who aren’t organized haha! This is just what works for me!) When I was teaching 8th grade science, I had these massive binders, each one for each concept we studied, full of lesson plans, worksheets, labs etc. They were all beautifully labeled and organized with tabs. To say I was proud of them was an understatement. I used to tell my students that if the school ever caught fire, they each needed to run up to the front of my room and grab a 3 or 4 inch beasty binder and then exit the room. Of course, most of them realized I was joking but hey it got the point across that they meant a lot to me. But the point of me telling you that, is just to emphasize that I like organizing. So below I listed some of my posts on organizing, anything from organizing photos to bills to closets. Hope you can find some helpful ideas here! And that you get inspired to throw away junk you don’t need and go buy some cool rubbermaid containers and binders and get organized! You’ll be glad you did!
My Absolute FAVORITE Photo Books! (organizing photos)
Clean Freak: I’m one of those weird people… I like to clean. It’s a strange OCD mechanism that helps me cope with needing control in every aspect of my life. I think having a “non-shedding” (insert hysterical laughter here…) dog also makes me feel like I constantly need to be swiffering my floors or wiping down a counter. Now this isn’t to say that I don’t have my moments of procrastination or feeling overwhelmed so I just shut the door and move on with my day, but cleaning is kind of a weird therapeutic hobby of mine, so posts below fall under that category.
Hobbies: I love crafts. I’ve grown up cross stitching, crocheting, painting, making cards… doing all kinds of scrapbooking and other stuff with my aunt. I used to go over to my Maw-Maw’s house almost every Sunday after church, and my aunt and I would do crafts and then I would play a round of dominoes with Maw-Maw and she would cook my a HUGE pancake in her cast iron skillet. Miss those days. I love decorating my house, and making things pretty, so you can find posts about that stuff here!
Oils: Essential oils are a relatively new thing for me. I have just gotten into them over the last couple of years since having Jackson. Once you get pregnant and are breastfeeding, you are extremely limited to what you can take to help you sleep or things you can do when you are sick, so I turned to oils to help us out in those areas. It has turned into something I use daily and really rely on with myself and my kids, and my hubbie has even gotten into them and that is saying something!
