My pretty organized cabinet.
This week has been crazy for me. Lots of running about to school functions, the welcoming of my new niece on Mother's Day, dealing with cleaning out our basement and flooding of our basement (although the husband did most of that), planning a birthday party for the kids, organizing anything not tied down, moving my craft area to a new room and designing my new space, making two new areas for the kids to play and a myriad of craft projects to complete the above listed projects. I have been busy, busy. I've literally sat down to write this about 5 times, getting a sentence here and there! So anyway I thought I would share some of the highlights of what I've been up to. I'm sure you will be seeing many more updates about this craft room/playroom area that I am doing as it appears it will be several weeks in the making. I had originally planned on doing it in a weekend, but I was a little over enthusiastic. Basically we took our sunroom which use to be a playroom for the kids and took everything out and made a giant playroom for them in the basement. Then I took half of the room and made an arts/crafts area for the kids, a reading area for the kids, a shelf for Bug's trucks and a table for Sweets tree house and all of the Calico Critters and Puppies in My Pocket. The other half of the room houses my bookshelve with all of my crafty stuff neatly organized and my sewing area. I'm knee deep in this project right now and have a lot I want to do. I've been getting a lot of my organization ideas from here: http://j-a-girl.blogspot.com/
Here is the new crafty shelf
The kids art shelf
A piece of embroidery I made for the wall
I embroidered this on a piece of vintage sheet.
My newly reupholstered vintage office chair
Details: I bought the chair for 19.99 at a Peddlars Mall, along with a still in package vintage sheet for 6 dollars and after lots of cursing, removing a thousand screws, bending some dangerous looking hooks out, cutting, stapling and re-screwing in a thousand screws I have my new adorable office chair. I LOVE it so much! The sheet was a full size too, so I have plans to make an Amy Butler gumdrop pillow for the room out of it also.
So that is what I have been doing, what's new with you?
