Is There Any Such Thing?

I need a house organizer. I am not referring to one of those people that comes into your home, discards everything deemed unnecessary and has a gigantic garage sale for you. I am clutter free. Things do not sit long in my home. I toss important papers simply because I have no where to put them, then reap the consequences.

My home is on the small side for six bodies. We have one living area where we all gather. I need more space without using a sledge hammer and two by fours. I would love for someone to rearrange my furniture and make my living space more livable.

My bedroom has a king sized bed, HUGE desk, and armoire circa 1982. My bedroom needs rearranging so that I have a sitting area to do my reading, and a computer desk that doesn't take up one-third of the entire room.

My dining room has a table for dining, brilliant, a large table with a computer on top and a fireplace that has been used once in nine years. These So Cal winters don't exactly require weeks of gas induced flames to warm chilled bodies. Our heater works great.

Without a large sum of money to uproot my home and rebuild one with more usable space, I am stuck trying to get creative. I do not hold creative credentials in the interior design area. Give me some markers, construction paper, and butcher paper and I will make you a fantastic "Happy Birthday" sign, or bulletin board for your classroom--hardly useful for a home.

Aren't there wonderful people out there who are just naturally savvy with home layout that love to volunteer their services? Perhaps I can make them a "Happy Birthday" sign in exchange for their design expertise. I'm going to start asking around. I'm sure that someone, somewhere is having a birthday soon and needs a sign--someone, hopefully with skills that I can borrow.

--pretty hilarious that I stumbled across your blog tonight--(i'm usually in bed this early-yes, I know it's only 8:45PM) --as Allison so correctly stated- "I love doing that"--give me a call--I'm very familiar with 6 bodies in small spaces!
