Sticking to my Resolution of Organization: Craft room tackle
So the time has come to put my words into actions and get organized. I took the first steps for the craft room and picked out a lovely gray color,bought the paint and started buying storage cubes and little canvas baskets for the shelves in gray and yellow.
Today, Ana and I will be taking everything we can move (excepting some bigger furniture) out of the room, and I will paint!! Then, I have to build the storage shelves (how hard can that be) and start organizing the crafts by type. Scrapbook, ribbon, stickers, glues, and paints. It will be fun! Then, I can unpack the sewing machine , get that set up and start making Ana cute skirts and dresses and ruffled pants!
Also, I had an inspired idea to turn the third wall into a pseudo photo studio . I will put up some fabric or canvas backgrounds and take Ana's posed photos there. My photos are as good as JC Penney for sure, and I like to collect cute small furniture for her. Just think of all the delicious photos I can capture if I set this up. The craft room is nice and bright and the natural light will be gorgeous.
I am purging and cleaning out my closet daily and will have a nice big pile of clothing to sell in the spring. Then, whatever doesn't sell I will donate to a shelter, or woman's home. I really want someone to use it.
I started the clothing by organizing my jeans and thought surely I must have 20 pairs of jeans, this is ridiculous. Oh no, I don't have 20 pairs of jeans...I have 42 pairs of jeans, and that is totally ridiculous... SO it is time to purge, clean out and move on.
Taking this first step feels good. I am ready to clean up this room!
Stay healthy and warm,
