So today i've been busy cleaning out my studio , the art room, the spare guest room the shed. It's this space that used to be a garage, but was converted to an office by the previous owners. When we bought this house our intention was to turn it into a guest room/ studio space to house all my creative bits and pieces. We cemented and raised the floors, but that was as far as we got before running out of money. We still need to seal the floors, paint, fix lighting, add a sink ....
So for now, it's just a junk room The catch-all room if you will. It's where we store all the boxes we still have to unpack (yes, we are still unpacking!), and all the outdoor stuff like bikes and mowers and whipper snippers until we get our outdoor shed built. So really, its a nicer than average shed.
And this is what it looks like...
Can you see the potential there though?
Anywayyyys.... i still have most of my craft stuff in boxes and it drives my nuts when i want to make something and i have to spend time searching through all the boxes to find my supplies! By the time i've found them i'm usually hot (it's like a furnace in there) uninspired and lost my creative mojo. So on a whim i decided i NEED to clean it out! I started unpacking all the boxes and putting the contents in my dining room. Not a good idea in hindsight....
But once i started i was determined to keep going till i got it done. I went and bought a whole stack of clear storage boxes on sale at Target, and started sorting through everything.
I have 2 really big boxes which i am filling with stuff i will never use. I plan to have a craft sale at my house, kinda like when we did this just before Xmas.
Of course, i thought i'd be done in a day. It didn't take me long to realise i needed way more than a day to finish. So it looks like this mess is here to stay for just a bit longer.... And you can wish me luck trying to tackle it with a toddler around, ugh!
Speaking of cute little toddlers, this ones been keeping me extra busy lately.
He will almost NEVER sit in his pram for me anymore, which is really fun when trying to grocery shop.
He loves Cheerios (not the healthiest snack i know, but this kid is one PICKY eater!) but won't eat fruits and veggies which KILLS me! What child hates fruit?
Any suggestions there? I'll take them!
He LOVES reading. Thats awesome, love a kids that loves to read. I could do story time with him forEVER. His fave book is Winnie the Pooh. i love that too.
Well....back to cleaning!
