For a little while there everything slowed down & I was able to somewhat catch up with life… It has gone back to full speed though with photo sessions, weddings to photograph, family & four little furry creatures to care for (one who is quickly becoming not so little – weighing in at 51 lbs the other day! well on his way to becoming an 80 lb adult hopefully :), and a couple full on decorating/remodeling projects… Yikes, a lot of stuff! In case you think I am super-women or anything (ok don’t laugh if you know me in real life :), the house needs vacuuming and I don’t cook… Luckily, I have a wonderful husband who is supportive of my job/business and cooks (since otherwise I am not sure we would eat ;).
Anyways, I am still around just trying to fit everything in. Currently my craft room is packed up in tubs & scattered around our family room. In the meantime my craft room sits mostly empty while I paint my fabric cupboards (and after that the walls & moldings),wait for my flooring to be delivered, and finally eventually get/install the cabinets to finish the room… If it wasn’t so scary I might show an in progress photo, but one of the walls isn’t even finished drywall (we took some v-groove paneling down and are going to repair the drywall/replace the paneling with real beadboard)…
I did laugh the other night as we were pulling the room apart…. It just hit me that so much of home projects is taking apart something that is okay (but not your style, not quite good enough, etc.) just to put it all back together again. Yes it is totally worth it (especially when a space isn’t functioning well), but from the outside looking in it might seem kind of crazy :) Well I am sure I will have more to share of the ongoing project that is my craft room soon… The cupboards should be painted soon & I will start sharing some of the progress :)
As a totally unrelated sidenote – awhile back Tara at Baby Lifestyles contacted me about featuring the baby shower I hostessed this summer. Anyways, after a little email interview Baby Lifestyles wrote a fabulous piece (and made my ramblings sound lovely!)… Click on the button to stop over & read it :)
