The Nesting Instinct

(Image from TimTim)

I’m now 19 weeks along in my pregnancy. (Aaaghh, where has the time gone?) The nesting urge is really kicking in, and have a million and one projects on the list to get the house perfectly organised before our family expands, and life gets a little crazy for a while.

With that in mind, I thought a nesting theme for the coming months, with craft and cleaning projects focusing on the theme:
  • June – Bedrooms
  • July – Living/Dining
  • August – Kitchen
  • September – Storage and Decluttering
  • October – Baby items (and maybe some special stuff for Little Big Bro too)
By then, things will quieten down on the blog front as I deal with sleep deprivation and poo-wrangling, with a bit of toddler taming on the side!
I’d love to spread the blog love as well, and feature projects from other blogs each month too. Let me know in the comments or via email (CookCleanCraft AT gmail DOT com) if you’d like to be featured.


  1. Fantastic! So exciting to be pregnant again, right? Love what you are doing on your site. I love a clean house but my three teens, two dogs, a busy husband and living near the beach is just about killing me to keep it clean and run my blogazine! OUCH! I love your suggestions. Thanks!

  2. Hi, stopping by from SITS. What a great idea to have a theme for the month. Congratulations on your pregnancy.

  3. Excellent idea on the themes. I’m just going all out crazy in every direction!

    Thanks for following my blog and I hope my pet sitting stories keep you safe and entertained in your “nest”! I confess I am jealous of the fact that you can make up craft and cleaning lists and I think you must be one of the most organized people I know! Are you the next Martha Stewart?

  5. I just wanted to let you know that I would feel thrilled if you would like to feature some of my posts in October with your theme babyitems. I am actually thinking about writing a post about “baby toys” for a while now … would that be something you would be interested in?
