Ah, the smell of a clean house....

even if it only lasts for one a few hours, I can enjoy it, right? Iain and Nattie went skiing yesterday and Jamie and I stayed home. I decided I was going to do a big clean, so with cleaning supplies in hand I tackled the house - with Jamie's help, of course! I love the smell of the Swiffer Wet wipes, and the floor looked so shiny. The carpets were nice and fluffy, the toys were put away.

But of course - we live here!! So by the time everyone got home, had dinner, and bedtime rolled around last night, it was all back to normal - toys scattered, floor scuffed and smattered with cereal crumbs, bits of carpet flat again. And I wouldn't have it any other way :) It's what I'm used to, and it means everyone is home.

Talking of home, this card is made with stamps from justjohanna. I stamped on to different patterned papers, cut out pieces of the house and then put it back together. I love the "blah blah blah" coming out of the chimney :)

I too love the smell of a clean house, but like you said it never lasts too long. Too bad, but that's life. :-) I really like your card.

What a cute card! I managed to get some cleaning done yesterday too, but you're right in that it never lasts that long! Such is life...
