- I've been clearing out and re-ordering my sewing room. That's a mammoth task that can only be taken on a little at a time, much like eating the proverbial whale. I'd like to hang something(s) to pretty up the bare walls, but I haven't seen anything that has really grabbed me yet. I suspect I'll be turning to etsy, soon.
- I've commissioned my very talented husband to build me a command center/mini office in a small corner of the dining room. I'm thinking something like this or this or maybe this. We'll see what he comes up with. I have no doubt that it will be excellent.
- I'm sorting out how best to keep the kids' craft supplies. I've moved a lockable cupboard into the school room, and all the games are in the open top-half. The bottom half is lockable, which I'm thinking will be a help in keeping little Dan-hands out of mischief, but I'm not sure if it will all fit. I'm also considering making some space in my sewing room closet for some stuff...Very much a "we'll see" project.
- I'm almost finished getting the boys' room organized to make room for the newbie. I bought 3 new boxes from IKEA initially intended to house the baby clothes under the changing table. Right now, they are keeping all the diapers neat and in order. I might buy more or fancy up some cardboard boxes.
