Oh, how I love showing you the After pictures, So I think I will!
They are so much happier than the Before Pictures!
That is the floor of my spare bedroom.
The room that is supposed to by MINE!
I want it to be my creaft room, Sewing space, Scrapbook room.
BUT IN REALITY, it is the don't know where this goes, throw it in there room.
Does it look any less disgusting if the picture is tiny?
In an attempt to clean up my act, I installed a closet system on the wall.
There is a table I painted white a few years ago. I thought it had great legs, but the top is BAD!
If I had room on it, I could use my sewing machine there!
This is going to seem like I am changing the subject for a moment, but you will get it in a minute.
I tell my sons there is always a way to earn money, you just have to be willing to do WORK!
People will often pay to have done what they don't have time or ability to do.
I don't have the ability to organize.
I have lots of time, but It just isn't easy for me to do. I get distracted, (SQUIRREL)
Remember It took me TWO DAYS to get my kitchen cleaned and organized.
and another to uncover my dining room table after cleaning and organizing my kitchen.
As a massage Therapist, my work has slowed as people are trying to meet their deductibles.
But, I still have more than most, and especially since most of my young friends cannot even get work in the fast food, retail entry level jobs. I know it isn't my responsibility to save the world, but I can help one person at a time right?
This is a sweet young friend in my life.
She works part time in her mothers store, but doesn't have a steady income, so the other day when she asked if she could do some cleaning for me, I thought for a split second and agreed.
We worked together today, organizing, labeling, sorting tossing, bagging, removing, relocating, and hanging all the extra pictures stacked, stuffed, and slipped into that room.
I found some real treasures in the bottom of that mess.
It was hiding under the stuff boys have outgrown. It once had a place in my living room, but three rambunctious boys, it didn't last in there. Now it lights my work table.
Yep, that is my sewing machine sitting on the table!
See those two tubs by the window? Guess what is in those?
really, it just looks like alot, It is probably enough to make 3 or 4 tote bags.
Notice the plethera of pictures in the room? I like to change the pictures in the living room ALOT!
I have decorators ADHD
Well, Amber pulled them out of the piles on the floor and started hanging them up around the room.
DUH, Walls for pictures? Who woulda thunkit?
Alright, I think I got the better end of the deal.
I paid her a VERY fair wage, and now, my room is ready for me to start a project.
If I need to stop in the middle of a project, I can just close the door.
I don't have to clear the table to serve dinner.
Speaking of new projects, I am thinking of one that uses both the plastic bags, and the sewing machine. What is it? You are just going to have to wait and see!
