No More Clutter! Week 6 – The Final Chapter

Welcome back to everyone who has been with us on this journey from the beginning! And a warm welcome to all my new readers!

If you feel a little bit lost, let me quickly summarize! In the beginning of June 2020 I decided that, since I couldn’t even find the space to work on my dress projects anymore, it was time for a proper decluttering and make-over of our home.

If you would like to know how everything began, please check out my initial post on this Clean & Declutter Challenge.

Welcome to my Mori Home!

It is done! I have officially managed to transform my messy, full-of-clutter house into a Mori Girl Wonderland Home. Our 6 Weeks Clean & Declutter Challenge has come to an end and even though there were a few minor setbacks and some things left unfinished, the result pretty much speaks for itself. No more clutter around I have finally made my home fit for a Mori Girl.

I did it! The living room is complete. Our fifth week of cleaning and decluttering was all in all pretty easy-going. I got a lot of rest, completed our checklist and brought our house one huge step closer to my Mori Home.

So much happened in our fourth week! A total living room make-over and it was probably one of the most challenging tasks so far. One thing is for sure: This last week was a proper roller coaster ride!

Relax & Re-charge

This week went much smoother all together. I definitely learned from my mistakes of the previous week. As our declutter challenge continues, I have learned that it is important to take some time off in between and re-charge.

Declutter Challenge! The Before and After of Week 1

We got off to a bit of a rocky start in our first week of decluttering, but all’s well that ends well, as they say!

The before and after of last week’s decluttering definitely shows. Of course we are not nearly at the end of our journey, in fact I would say, we have barely scratched the surface of this declutter challenge. That is not to say that I am not happy with the outcome so far (double negative <( ̄︶ ̄)>).

Say NO to Clutter! – 6 Weeks Clean & Declutter Challenge – A Home fit for a Mori Girl

It’s time to get the house in order with our Clean & Declutter Challenge

Today it’s all about the cleaning, organizing and declutter movement. Let’s just start with: Our house is a mess…

This is not our mess, but it illustrates the situation in our home quite perfectly at the moment.
(╯︵╰,)

Do you know this problem? Too little space and too many things.

If you happen to find yourself in a similar situation, have you ever considered to just say: “ENOUGH! Let’s clean and get all this clutter out of the house!”?

The Strawberry Shortcake Dress – Part 03 & 04

It’s almost May and my little girl’s birthday was already over a month ago… and yes, the dress was ready in time!


(If you just happened to come across this post and want to know where and how it all began, please go check out Part 01 and Part 02 of The Strawberry Shortcake Dress first.)


A lot has happened in the last months and though I was diligently working on this dress, bringing out this post took longer than planned.
cut and edit

I apologize for the delay, but, after the actual sewing, the cutting and editing of all the video footage took quite some time. It is, however, done now and I am proud to present the finished project in two separate videos.

Happy Halloween

I am a bit sad that Halloween is almost over already and I have to admit, I was going to bring this post/video out a lot earlier today, but as it is with family life and kids, especially the tiny ones, one is hardly ever on time!

No time! I’m late!

Honestly I haven’t slept much the last couple of days, just to make sure that I would get all our costumes ready in time and indeed, after hours and hours of knitting and sewing and drinking I don’t know how many cups of coffee, I now proudly present:
