Laundry is getting so much more attractive

Curtsey Boutique Shabby Chic Recipe Clothes Pins
With 4 children and a sporty husband, I do lots of stinky, dirty, mind numbing laundry. I've tried everthing to make it more appealing. Here are just a few failed attempts at making taming the funky fun.

1. The Mary Poppins approach - "snap" the laundry is still not a game.

2. The Turn it into a competition approach - bummer the kids win again, they've used all the clean clothes up quicker than I can fold them.

3. The grin and bear it approach - who am I foolin' there is no one to impress in my laundry room!

So this week, while tracking down the one sock that has figured out teleportation way ahead of NASA it occurred to me - what's the most fun thing in the world? Crafting of course.

So I made a deal with myself, keep a positive attitude when washing off that stain of dubious origin and you get to go buy a brand new package of laundry pins and try that shabby chic stamping technique that you loved in that magazine a few months back.

Just doing the mental inventory of which stamps would fit on those little clips killed the time it took to do two loads of folding and pressing and now these little cuties are hanging all over my laundry room and kitchen and available in the Curtsey Boutique!

Hope your chores are going cheerfully,
