Who would have thought that an October snow storm could be so inconvenient!
We awoke to no power on Sunday morning but were lucky enough to have it back on by Sunday evening.
However, we had no phone, cable or internet until late yesterday.
So I am quite behind on my posting and my visits and hope to catch up with what you've all been up to very soon.
Want to know what I have been up to?
Nothing too exciting...just making more progress by crossing some projects off my old to do list!
First I can cross off painting the rest of the trim in the hallway since I applied the second coat!
Next, I put a coat of primer on my front door and
hope will be putting a coat (or two) of the new color sometime within the next week. When I finish that project I will share some before, during and after photos.
Then, since I have been keeping my studio pretty neat and organized I decided to tackle the room right outside my door.
You might remember this mess from last January...
...and how I mentioned that my whole downstairs needed a makeover and some organizing. The space above has finally been finished. I gave it a fresh coat of paint before I had my surgery in February and Jim installed shelving to hide crafting supplies and items I have for sale in my Etsy shop. While everything was organized it looked a mess! Jim finally put up a pipe so I could hang a drop cloth curtain. I attached it by using curtain rod clips (no sewing!). Here is what it looks like now...
I know it needs to be ironed but I was waiting because I was wondering if I should run it through the washer and dryer first? Maybe it will make it a bit softer and maybe I wouldn't have to iron it! Let me know if you have any tips.
I was going to change out the rug but have decided to work with it for now...
I found this cute black table at a yard sale a few weeks ago and decided to keep it for myself (and why not for $5.00). It ended up being the perfect place for my fleur de lis shutter...
I added my cherished copies of JDL...
I can't wait for the Christmas issue!
I also changed my hutch a bit...
Now the area is neat and organized...
Well, this half anyway...the other half has all my pinks from my booth and some Christmas projects ready to be worked on!
Rome wasn't built in a day!
I have also been working on new items for my booth which I will share next week.
It feels so good to be getting things accomplished!
Jim and I also took Jake on his first college tour this week!
His senior year is going by very fast...too fast!
I am missing him already.
Thank you all for stopping by today...I've missed you too!
