I've been spending my days working on my household inspiration board, going through items to purge (some are trashed, but most are being sold with anything left over intended for donation), and overall just working to finally transition my rooms into more usable spaces after nearly 6 years of living in this house. Above is my current craft space, which obviously is not very craft-friendly at the moment. It's a spare bedroom with a twin bed that is due to be converted back into a bedroom as we move my things into a combined hobby/craft area in our "formal" living room for my husband and I. (No fear, after some more reorganizing, I can access all of the most important of the craft items I need in order TO work on the home decor projects I have lined up!)
Of course, sorting and purging means that I've been finding things and taking walks down memory lane. I was moving under bed plastic storage bins in our spare room in order to make room for a few additional items and wound up in my school bin (with all of my year books from elementary through college) and also in my Girl Scout bin. I need to get back into the latter bin and finish sewing badges onto uniforms so that things are all as they should be, and I do need to purge some items within it. I plan to only keep old uniforms, old handbooks and badgebooks, the blanket I started for badges I swapped all those years ago, and a few other pieces (Gold Award binder, plaques and similar). T-shirts and bandanas will need to come out to be put within a T-shirt quilt eventually. I debate actually putting my old uniforms within that project, too, but I feel that history there is worth keeping them for a bit longer before truly deciding what to do. What would you do?
Does anyone remember when I spent a good portion of last summer and into the fall working on my garden redo project? I wound up planting a whole bunch of Daffodils (somewhere around 80), along with some Gladiolas (at least I think that's what I planted), some 4 o'clocks, and a plethora of Irises. More than 40 bulbs have already come up of which I suspect that are all Daffodils as we typically have a flowering of them come February 1st. I am so amazed by the change in how many have come up compared to previous years because of the time I took to dig them out, separate them, and put them back in. Can't wait to see them bloom. It promises to me amazing, I hope.
I hope to begin taking (and posting?) before pictures of the rooms in our home that we are intending to redo these next few months -- the formal living room into hobby.craft space, the craft area back into a bedroom, and hopefully my kitchen, dining room, entryway, and closets. Nahhhh.... Nothing like only taking on one project at a time. ;)
