it had to be cleaned.
a little rearranging...letting in some more sunshine...sweeping...tossing...reorganizing.
the yellow cart became shelves...the top of the lockers were put to good use...a chandelier was hung.
the chandelier used to be in our bedroom but when we made the new closet walls
we forgot to make a place for it.
so it's been in a box for a year...thank goodness it's not anymore.
the window to the right was blocked so i scooted the lockers down and let the sun shine in!
i finally hung the hooks on my door.
i was waiting till i painted the trim and the door with real paint instead of just primer.
then i thought "who the heck cares....it's MY craft room!" so i hung them up.
IF i ever get that door painted i will just take the hooks off.
i hung my little red shelf that i have had stuck in a box since moving from illinois.
it's the perfect shelf to hold the chalk.
and bottle caps from africa.
and suckers for kids who come in my room to draw on the walls.
happy stacks of fabric ready to be made into pillows.
best place ever.
here's little craig in kindergarten... 70's sweetness.
that bulletin board has special art from the girls.
in the drawing made in red marker....that large woman with no legs next to the skinny man...that's ME.
it's such a happy space.
makes me want to breathe big deep sighs of loveliness.
i want to be in here all day long.
but that big crazy family of mine expect so much of me...meals, laundry, groceries, car rides, sports!!!
when is a girl supposed to get crafty?!
i find time.
i just wish there was more time in the day.
last night i thought "i'm so tired but i am ticked that i have to sleep...i'd rather just go go go"
but my bed is so comfy that i quickly fell asleep
(and had totally bizarre dreams by the way....
in my dream someone said to me "you are not white trash! you are so far from it!"
i woke up and thought "what the what?!")
well anyway...if you need me...i'll be in the craft room.
