This post was inspired by the hilarious comments you left on my Spectacular Sparkitor Desk Slideshow, which are best summed up in the simple, succinct words of T-Rex11: "WOW YOUR DESKS ARE NEAT. My desk looks like a library and a laboratory exploded on it."
That comment got me thinking...if your desks are that messy, what does the rest of your room look like? Is your closet a pit of despair? Is your locker in need of a major makeover? Does your bathroom look like the hygiene aisle at the grocery store barfed all over it? Is your backpack a black hole of homework, Cheez-its, and half-written love notes to Dan Bergstein?
FABULOUS. THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I WAS HOPING YOU'D SAY. Because I just so happen to have an amazing idea, Sparklebutts: I want you to send me pics of your disastrously untidy, desks, rooms, and closets, because I'm going to hand them over to a REAL, LIVE ORGANIZATION EXPERT. Her name is Jessica Ferguson, and she not only happens to be the founder of the brand-new company Organized Interiors, she also happens to be one of my very best friends (and she looks like a supermodel, and she's hilarious, and she's so nice it hurts, but we shouldn't hold those things against her). I begged her to help you, my darling, hapless, disorderly dears, by sharing her tried-and-true tips on how you can easily (and cheaply!) turn even the worst mess into a beautiful oasis of cleanliness, and she, like the angel she is, AGREED.
So here's what I need from you:
1. Your most nightmarish pics of organization gone wrong (attach them to your emails as jpegs please, and try to make the photos as focused and clear as possible; tiny, blurry pics probably won't be included in the slideshow!)
2. Your username (unless you'd like to remain anonymous)
3. A short caption about what's shown in the pic
4. And, if you so desire, a few specific questions for Jess to answer, like "how can I organize my makeups other than by throwing them into a trash bag?" or "The sight of my desk reduces me to a heap of tears and sweat. HALP?"
In two weeks, I'll put them everything a giant slideshow along with Jess' advice, and VOILA: your rooms, and your lives, shall be forever transformed.
DOESN'T THIS SOUND FUN?! You can email everything to me right HERE with the subject line "organization slideshow." I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HOW DISGUSTINGLY MESSY YOU ARE!
