Melissa Kaylene: Creating.Simplifying.Inspiring.

Wednesday, October 10, 2012


Hey Everyone :). There's been a lot of new followers lately and I just want to say Thank You! It really does amaze me that people actually like to read my little blog when there are so many big fabulous ones out there.

I've been working a lot behind the scenes of my creative endeavor here, and want to let you know how excited I am to see my vision start to take form and come to 'life'. It has been six months since I began my blogging journey and I'm excited to see the progress and cannot wait to see what the next six months will bring.

Before I began blogging I sat down and really thought about what the content of my blog would be about. Would I stick to one theme? What would I post about? I am the kind of girl that always has thoughts and ideas running through my head, but I'm not always the best kind of girl to stick with a routine. In the beginning I thought I could do it, but I don't always work that way. I really began thinking, and I knew that I wanted to blog about the things I created and cooked, and also about some of our day to day life, and events that we go too.I came up with my "motto"


 I think that pretty much sums up my blog. You will always see either something I have created, an attempt to simplify something in my life, and I always hope to inspire someone, in some way. You will begin seeing that I am tagging my posts with one of those themes, to help you refer to what category you'd like to catch up on.

In other news, I want to give a shout out too Amanda at The Little Giggler , who recently featured my 31 Fall Activities/Bucket List on her Love it, Link it up party!

Okay, so here's for the project of the day. It's simple really, man oh man I don't know why it took me so long to get too it. Our front closet was a disaster! It holds our games and coats. Ya, that's it....but in the before picture it sure looked like a lot more! The kids (yes I'm blaming this one on them) get into the games and never put them back properly, and well, things just get shoved in there. Organizing is something I always struggle maintaining...but I keep on trying. :)

Well, all I did was take everything out, throw away the torn up game boxes, put all the games back together in the proper boxes and organized them back on the shelves...nothing fancy...but look at how much room there is after doing just that!? Crazy huh?

That was only slightly embarrassing to show everyone, hope it inspires you!  :)

P.S. I would LOVE it if you would show me what you have been up to on my brand new Create.Simplify.Inspire. link up party!

  6. That always feels so much better huh--I just did our bedroom closet. Still needs a little work, but is a huge improvement!

  7. I love a good closet cleaning! I even keep the door open the first day just to remind myself how good I am, hee hee. I really enjoyed reading the first part of your post. I love having a 'behind the scenes' look of why people blog. I am clicking to follow and I hope you return the favor! I can't wait to see what else you will share in the next six months! Kudos to you on having a great start!!! Jules from blesid thrifter
