Creating a Mess
Yesterday we hit the ground running. And we did make progress in finding more storage space for me and my quilting supplies.
We completely emptied the china cabinet and put things back selectively. I now have an empty shelf in the bottom of the cabinet to use. Happy!
I also cleaned out the craftsman cabinets on the sides of our fireplace - two empty cabinets for my use! Happy.
The next step was the guest bedroom: put the bed on risers to give me storage underneath. Hubby brought home a new set of risers. Easy peasy? Nope, of course not! The legs at the head of the bed are too big to fit in the risers. We mulled and talked and googled our hearts out. The plan now is to make two bed risers from blocks of wood for the head of the bed to match the height of two store bought risers to be used for the foot of the bed.
Things are always more complicated than they seem. But Hubby is headed off this morning to Home Depot to get the wood. Can't wait to get this room put back together! We're also going to hang a curtain rod in here and maybe all this will inspire me to hang some pictures on the wall, too.
Last night I went with two team members to Birmingham for a Rodan and Fields event. It was a packed room full of women (and a few men). This is the first time I've attended one of these and I really didn't know what to expect. I came away so thankful to be a part of this billion dollar business with like minded women (and men). I came away feeling blessed to have made the decision to jump aboard several months ago. I have never been a part of a group of women who are so supportive without being competitive. And I have never seen so many people in one room with such amazing and glowing skin - haha!
Okay, time to get to work! Have a great one!
