It's not quite there yet, but progress has been made. MANY hours of cleaning/organizing/dusting have gone into it. Wish I could say that I was done, but I'm not. There is smaller pile of stuff in front of the file cabinet, a few odds and ends under the desk, and the closet still needs so work. The bookcase may not look any different to you, but while I was dusting everything in it, I did a little bit of shuffling around. Even little changes are pleasing to my eyes and that's pretty much all it takes to make me happy. I love that I can see the tops of the desks again. While cleaning up around here I've decided that I really want this to hold my works in progress stuff. I never know what to do with stuff that I get for a specific project that needs to be done soon, but not now. Know what I mean? and I REALLY want this to replace my green desktop "totally cool" tote. I love the way Making Memories designed them and I think it will work out much better for my needs. I thought the green tote would be great, but it's not (for me) Stuff falls in and I never see it again. I need to be able to see what I have and find it easily. I would have loved to win the MM ones, but I'll just have to start putting a little money aside and buy them instead.
Oh...and the tree in the corner has valentine stuff on it not Christmas.
Saturday night I had 8 ladies from church come over. I did a little make and take card class. A happy birthday one and a valentine one for their hubby. We ate....we visited...we created! It was great! I would have taken a group picture, but I looked terrible....I'm honest! Terrible! I think they all had fun too and they didn't care what I looked like. Cole said to me before they got here.."hey mom, are you going to go change your clothes first? " LOL! Who knew and 11 year old would care about stuff like that. At that point my feelings were, nice girls wont judge me....and I was right. :o)
