It's been a week.
I'm STILLLLLL cleaning.
Thanks to my BFF Aly, I have made progress on my "switcheroo". For those who just dropped in, I am trading rooms with my kiddos to make a bigger space for them and also create a studio for myself.
Last weekend, we emptied out every one of our bedrooms, and pulled all of our junk ( and we have got lots of junk!) into the living room, dining room and entryway. Seriously, we had to make a path to get thru all the piles of stuff.
So, the kids are finally moved in to the master bedroom, they love it! They have lots more room to make messes now! yeah for them!
Mommy and Daddy have the next bedroom, it's actually nice... not so much room anymore for baskets of laundry to pile up! yeah for us!
I have the smallest room, which will be a studio/guest room. It's nearly complete.
YEAH FOR ME!!
So, I still have allllllllllll the small stuff to get put away. But you know, I just like my stuff~ I love to look at every single bit and bob...I think it is all very necessary and useful, even the tiniest little scrap of lacy trim. AND it can get SUPER MESSY!
I have a hard time getting rid of stuff when it comes to supplies. I just always think of ways it might be used... I can't help it! Therefore I have (literally... I just counted) 23 little shoebox size boxes of "bits" to sort out. :0| That just what's in the room, not counting the six shelves of junk in my garage.
ouch! that's sad. I'm going to have a yard sale soon, to clean it up a bit. or maybe an ebay auction or two??
Okay, back to the happy~
I took a few "in progress" photos today of the little studio... and I had, had HAD to included my Oscar the Grouch... he's just so adorable!
gotta love him!
Oh, look at this PEZ dispenser my MIL sent... I stole it from the kids... shhh, don't tell!
ribbons and crepe paper
vintage boxes that hold glitter letters and small stickers, jars will be filled with little bits, glitter and buttons
I love this vintage badge I found at a thrift shop...
Bad lighting, but I used a wire mesh hanging basket (usually used for fruit) to store some of my favorite vintage trims...
Well, I need to wrap this up.
