Bonus Room



Happy Sunday! Just wanted to pop on and post some pics of our finished bookshelves! So excited to finally have it done and it looks great! I have plenty of room for toys, coloring books, books, craft supplies, etc. with some room to spare. Room to grow I guess! :)

Now just some touch ups and clean ups and I will really be happy! :) I want to get some curtains, throw pillows and maybe a big rug at some point. Anyway... all of that is for my to do list... not my blog post! :)

BTW... only showing half the room because the other half (Michael's desk) is a disaster area! :) But hey... he has built me some awesome shelves so I will give him another day or two before I start in on him cleaning out/up his area! :)

No card to post... sorry! Still in home mode!

I have been working on getting my stamp log completed and I am very very very happy to report that I am almost done stamping all of my stamps. Whew... what a chore! One I started on over a year ago! Thinking about throwing the rest of them away so I can be finished! Ha!

I have like 8 books of just random things that I have kept over the years from magazines, etc! I am also working on going through all of those and throwing out all of the crafty things and decor things that I kept if I ever had a girl. Also just throwing away (well recycling) the things that don't interest me anymore. Thankfully... that is most of it! I hope to have 3 (not even half full) books... a decor book, a crafty/activity with Carver book, and a Holiday decor book.

Let's see... what else have I been working on? Fixing to start working seriously on my photo albums/boxes. I am going to take all of my pics out of photo albums (except C's albums) and put them in the boxes. I am 2 years behind on printing and I am not planning to catch up. I don't really need photos from 10 years ago in albums. I am getting rid of any blurry photos, etc! I am giving any 3rd copies of photos that I have away to the parent of the child in the photo. I can have doubles but triples are too many! I am hoping to eliminate a lot of the stuff on my shelves in the living room!

Anyway.... guess I am listing things again! Just feel like rambling I guess! Good thing this is my blog! :) Just excited about the progress that we made this past week! Sorry!

Hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day! Hopefully I will be back in a day or two with a card!

Peace and Love!

The room looks great! I love how the book shelves turned out! I really want to see this stamping log book. I am in the process of finding a storage solution for my clear stamps and I would like to see how other do theirs, (if you have time of course)! :)

You make me feel like such an under-achiever!! ;-) The bonus room looks gorgeous and I know you are excited about getting so organized! I just wish I could clone myself so one of me could sew and the other could organize!!
