Tackle It Tuesday #125

by LisaW

Kraft Velveeta Casserole ChallengeHello ladies! It’s Lisa, your resident tackler! We have a guest tackler this week, but I’m still doing some tackling of my own over at my blog.

 I was selected by Kraft to participate in the fun and exciting Velveeta Casserole Challenge along with four other bloggers.

There will be some great giveaways related to this challenge over the next few weeks- aprons, Amazon gift cards, grocery gift cards and more. So pop on over to Confessions of an Apron Queen for a look.

Now, on with our guest tackler from Susie’s Homemade. Susie is a thriving stay-at-home mom of two wonderful girls (4 and 17) and the caretaker of her 65 year old live-in mother. She is also the owner and operator of Susie’s Homemade Chocolate Shop on Etsy. I think I’m going to try her peanut butter chip cookie dough dipped in chocolate. Yum!

Susie is tackling a special project this week. Susie’s little one is having eye surgery today. Here’s her Super Girl waiting on her Super Vision. Please drop by and wish her well.

Susie also shared with me her biggest tackle of the year- remodeling her bathroom. Here’s the teardown.

She declared herself “The Spackle Queen of the Midwest”! And here’s the finished product. 

Great tackle Susie! You can come by my house with your spackle anytime! Ladies, don’t forget… if you’d like to be a Guest Tackler, e-mail me at TackleItTuesday@gmail.com

Also, don’t forget about next week’s CLR Tackle. You could win $100 by tackling your kitchen and/or bath with CLR, sharing your opinion and linking up with it for Tackle It Tuesday on October 21st. Follow this link to lear more about the CLR Tackle.

Join Us For Tackle It Tuesday

We’re making housework blog-able!

Each week on Tuesday, we are posting before and after pictures of a project or trouble area that we tackled this week.

The project can be little or big – whatever you want. Basically, Tackle It Tuesday is about giving ourselves incentive, deadlines and satisfaction in getting our household tasks done. (It doesn’t even have to be housework… just whatever is on your To Do list.)  


If you tackled a project this week, just add a comment and add your link below.

Happy Tackling ladies…

My little boy will be having eye surgery in Dec.(already having had it twice before), so I know what Susie is probably feeling today and I will say a prayer for her and her little Super Girl!

I love the bathroom and I’m totally jealous of the new fixtures! SO nice!


15 Lisa October 14, 2008 at 12:20 pm

I’m not tackling anything so large, but I did get some cleanup done and feel inspired again!

Ooooh i want a potty-room like that!!!


19 Twisted Cinderella October 14, 2008 at 2:47 pm

The little girl is absolutely adorable! The bathroom looks great!!


20 Amy October 14, 2008 at 3:19 pm

Other peoples’ bathrooms always make me sad. Especially since my bathrooms have sea-shell shaped sinks (she sells sea-shells by the sea shore, anyone?).


21 Lorissa J. Longfellow October 14, 2008 at 4:21 pm

Lovely new bathroom.
Your little girl is really cute, too.


22 SophieMae October 14, 2008 at 4:24 pm

Oh, please come do my bathroom! 8-}
Vaya con Dios, Super Girl!


23 Erin Jean October 14, 2008 at 8:56 pm

Wow looks great! DH & I want to redo our baths too. We have 2 upstairs that are separated by only a wall. We are thinking instead of just the tiny master bath (his) and the big bathroom (mine) that we rip out the wall and make one HUGE bathroom with the toilet behind its own door, extra wide his & hers sinks (with lots of storage, a new big linen closet and a separate tub and shower. But with our first child due this month that has taken a backseat! hehe Congrats on your accomplishment! Tuesday 6 years from now I’ll let you know if we got to our bathroom yet. hehe

The bathroom looks great.

We just moved into a new place and are working hard on making it feel like home. Today I organized the filed in my home office. They’ve been sitting in a box ever since we moved.
