Wanting to get back in my room

I long to get back in my craft room, do some organizing and finish Charmin's memory album. Before I do that I must do the following:
1.  Put all the books back in the built-in bookcase in my dining room. The paint should be cured enough by tomorrow.
2.  After those books are off the newly painted buffet my dh and I will carry the also freshly painted (and cured) large bookcase that will become a, well not sure what it will be called but it goes on top of the buffet.
3.  Fill the buffet bookcase back up with books.
4.  Put almost everything back in the buffet after doing some purging or relocating. I really, really only want things in the dining room that will be used in the dining room or kitchen. Gone are the days of lackadaisicle placement willy nilly of every this and that chotsky that will NEVER EVER GET USED!!! Who cares how pretty it is if nobody can see it! Or who cares how retro it looks if nobody can see it. And what good is memorabilia if NOBODY CAN SEE IT??? A friend of mine had a good suggestion for having a room with wall to wall glass enclosed cabinets to display all our stuff! Neither my dh or I like to dust. Well I really don't mind, but the spasms in my back make me break out in a cold sweat and he doesn't see dirt.
5.  Roll up some towels and table linens to place in the wine cabinet. Yes folks, we bought a wine cabinet where we bought our dining table and chairs. It makes us both feel good to look at it, but we rarely have wine in the house because quite honestly we can't afford it. Our SIL suggested that we roll up table mats, so I'll try that.
6.  Find a place to put all those big envelopes I've brought from work, rescued from the trash of course. They are currently residing on top of a box and are tinkering on the brink of sudden collapse at any minute now. BTW they are being recycled, or upcycled, in to smaller envies and note cards.
7.  Clear off my desk. This task takes several hours because I'm a piddler, have to look at and touch everything, pondering about what it will be used for and where to store it.
8. Then and ONLY THEN can I find space to finish the album...

Pin It!


  1. I feel like my house is a constant work in progress!

    I'm sure it's looking good!

  2. This is so cool! Good ideas. I'm a big scrapbooker and sew-er, who recently got divorced and moved into a much smaller rental house, and have my stuff stashed all over the place! Love your blog color and style!

  3. Thanks for your words of encouragement! I guess our homes are no different than us, right? Always a work in progress.


Thanks for stopping by. Now won't you please leave a comment to let me know you were here? I just love hearing from you!
