What makes a happy home and a home happy?
“At the heart of any happy home is some one who is content bearing the fruit of love, joy, warmth and life in rich abundance.”
1. You are the centre of your home.
Married or single, you are the heart of your home!
Create a sanctuary where it feels homey.

The Inspired Room is a great website to help you in organising and cleaning your house.
2. You are the comfort of your home.
This means you have the accountability of sheltering your cherished family. There are things you can do as a mother to keep, protect and teach your children.
I’ve always thought a housewife or Mum has the biggest job than anyone because your considered to be multiple things!
3. You are the adornment of your home!
Decorate your room with your favourite theme.
For example, I have created a “Royal” theme for my bedroom, because I have grown a fondness for the royal family, and like to keep a theme. My quilt is a Princess ivory quilt from Spotlight and when I move I will put up my three letters from the royals to keep the theme!
Here is an example of a “Paris” themed room!!!!

I love this quote:
Homemaking isn’t about creating the perfect space, it’s about creating a space that feels like home.
It’s about creating a peaceful haven. I just got back from Queensland, and it was so nice to be back to my OWN bed and familiar surroundings.
It is good to keep good homemaking and organisational skills to essentially live a better life! I find that once I have vaccummed and added fresh flowers that it leaves such a great feel to the place!
I love the idea of homemaking and creating a haven where I spend most of my time! You need to create a space where you can breathe, live and love!
Your family would appreciate what you do in your home, and how you do things will reflect.
